Sporting Clays Classic

Addieville East Farm, Mapleville, RI

Friday, Sept 28, Addieville East Farm hosted our second Sporting Clays Classic to help raise funds for our mission which includes – “supporting and funding youth football throughout New England with programs that emphasize leadership, teamwork and achievement through lessons learned on the football field.” We were joined by 25 former Patriots and 22 foursome teams. A special thank you to all of our generous supporters including Gaftek, Bass Pro Shop, Kittery Trading Post, South Shore Meats, Virtus Group, Lighthouse Computer Services, Dale Bishop, and Wachusetts Beverages. Matt Light, we are happy to have kicked off your Patriots Hall of Fame weekend celebration with you & couldn’t be more excited for you.

Former Patriots Who Attended Included: Troy Brown, Raymond Clayborn, Sam Cunningham, Steve Grogan, Matt Light, Jon Morris, Steve Nelson, Joe Andruzzi, Jim Boudreaux, Jim Bowman, Pete Brock, Rick Buffington, Bob Cappadona, Tim Fox, Ilia Jarostchuk, Steve King, Ronnie Lippett, Bill Matthews, Stephen Neal, Tom Porell, Jeffrey White, and Jon Williams

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

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/Raffle /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.


There are numerous ways of contributing to our mission of supporting New England’s youth through educational Football For YOU camps, sponsoring our events is one of them.
