LAS VEGAS - Dec. 27, 2013 - Competitive sporting clay shooters are encouraged to register now for the 2014 Ducks Unlimited Las Vegas Continental Shoot. This annual event will take place Feb. 20-23, 2014, at the new Clark County Shooting Complex in North Las Vegas. All events will be governed by National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) rules.
The main event, as well as the preliminary and the 50-target Five Stand event, will run seven NSCA classes. Prizes will be provided by Browning and Fiocchi Ammunition. Shooters can use any NSCA-compliant shells to compete. There will be no non-registered 50-target fun shoot this year.
“Ducks Unlimited is excited to continue celebrating the clay target shooting sports with another national shoot," said Jim Konkel, chair of DU's National Shooting Committee. “The popularity of this shoot has increased over the years, and our new venue will allow more shooters to join in this competitive event. Our prize package puts this contest at the top of the 'must shoot' list for many competitors."
In the 100-target preliminary and the 200-target main event, payouts will include event champion, seven NSCA classes (M, AA, A, B, C, D and E) and one Hunter Lewis class for every 30 hunter entries.
