Sporting Clays Classic

Addieville East Farm, Mapleville, RI

On July 28, 2019,  New England Patriots Alumni Club hosted the third annual Sporting Clays Classic to help raise funds for our mission. Participants were amongst 20+ former Patriots as we kicked off the celebration for the newest Patriots Hall of Famers, Leon Gray and Rodney Harrison.

To give you an idea of the event, it’s formatted much like a scramble and in true “shotgun” fashion, there are 2 foursomes at each of 15 stands greeted by 2 Alumni shooters. Once the foursome scores the stand, they rotate through the course meeting a new pair of Alumni at the next stand.

After the tournament, participants enjoyed additional entertainment and camaraderie as Dale Bishop’s Pig Pick’n BBQ served up its specialties followed by awards, a live auction and a raffle to go along with refreshments, adult beverages and storytelling.

This year, Curt Bletzer, Jim Bowman, Pete Brock, Rick Buffington, Rick Cash, Matt Chatham, Ed Ellis, Tim Fox, Jarvis Green, Steve Grogan, Rodney Harrison, Steve King, Ronnie Lippett, Logan Mankins, Bill Matthews, Willie McGinest, Scooter McGruder, Steve Nelson, Patrick Pass, Tom Porell, Len St Jean, and Jeffrey White joined us.

4th Annual Sporting Clays Classic – Date to be determined.


Format of Event:

  • 15  Stand Sporting Clay Field
  • 2 Foursomes of Shooters at each stand
  • 6 Targets per Shooters at each stand
  • Shooters rotate to next stand after the Foursome has scored
  • 2 Alumni will be assigned to each stand – 1 to shoot with each Foursome – and will remain at the assigned station to meet the next rotation of shooters
  • Foursomes can opt to use the Alumni’s score to replace one of the Foursome’s scores
  • Shotguns, Shot shells & Targets provided – Bring your own shotgun if you would like

Sample Itinerary:

  • 10:00 am Registration
  • 11:00 am Shooters to the Stands
  • 1:00 pm  Reception & Cocktails
  • 1:30 pm Lunch, awards, raffle, & live auction
  • 3:00 pm Depart

You don’t even have to be good at shooting to enjoy pulling a trigger causing a loud bang and watching a target get blasted downfield – 300 bb’s explode from the muzzle of a shotgun and it only takes 1 to score a target – pretty good odds.

The date is dependent on the Patriots Hall of Fame induction. If you are interested in participating in 2020, please click the register now button and we will keep you apprised of information as it rolls out.
