18 Basics of Sporting Clays 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Peace Dale Shooting Preserve in Wakefield. You may have heard of sporting clays referred to as golf with a shotgun, and that’s a fair comparison. Sporting clays is the closest thing to actual field shooting of all shotgun sports. Rather than having clay birds thrown from standardized distances and angles as with skeet or trap, sporting clays courses are designed to simulate the hunting of ducks, pheasants, other upland birds, and even rabbits. Join us to learn how to play this fun, exciting, and challenging game. This event is FREE of charge, BUT space is limited and open to participants 12 years old and up that have some experience shooting a shotgun. To learn more or register, email jessica.pena@dem.ri.gov. Registration ends 11/14/2018.
