Breaking Out the Big Guns at the 2020 Annual Greenview Stakeholder Clay Shoot

The Municipal District of Greenview Council is pleased to hold it’s 2020 Greenview Stakeholder Clay Shoot on Thursday, September 10, 2020. The event will be held at the Shot Shell Sporting Clay Range near Valleyview, AB. Sporting clay shooting is often described as “golf with a shotgun.” Unlike trap and skeet shooting, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clays simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry shooting. Shot Shell Sporting Clays, a championship course south of Valleyview, AB, features a fully automated 16 station sporting clay course, including tower-level presentations mimicking high flying geese or ducks. Ground-level stations flushing partridge, pheasants, rabbits, and other ground targets are varied often. Greenview’s 2019 outdoor event attracted approximately 80 sports shooters. This year’s event is aiming for a smaller crowd, with a special focus on fun and fellowship, and will observe enhanced safety and cleaning protocols.

The days’ event begins at 11:00 am with registration and a safety meeting, a noon-hour lunch, with the tournament kicking off at 1:00 pm.  

“Greenview Council is pleased to host the 2020 Sporting Clay Shoot, and we are looking forward to getting outside and sharing valuable time with ratepayers and stakeholders in a non-traditional way,” said Reeve Dale Smith. “Clay shooting is a great sport that builds focus and physical discipline, and Council is grateful to Shot Shell Sporting Clays for helping to make our event possible again this year.”

The Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 is the third largest rural municipality in Alberta. Greenview includes the towns of Fox Creek, Valleyview, the hamlets of Little Smoky, Ridgevalley, DeBolt, Landry Heights, Grovedale, and Grande Cache. Greenview offers an array of rivers, lakes, mountain peaks of the majestic Rocky Mountains, and prairie meadows. Untamed wilderness promises an abundance of outdoor activities. Modern indoor recreation facilities provide sport and recreation activities year-round.
