2021 ASSP Sporting Clays Fun Shoot Fundraiser Results

1st Place Winner: T.W. Frierson 

Individual High Score: Damon Hogan

Thanks to all our Sponsors and participants, especially our Title Sponsor, Brasfield & Gorrie!

As the day opened for the 2021 ASSP Sporting Clays Fun Shoot, it was unseasonably warm.  The sun was shining for the start of a wonderful day.  The 6 teams converged on the River Course at the Nashville Gun Club, where the competition was fierce.  There was a two-way tie for first place with 159 points per team.  The winning team came down to the #5 station where the rabbit ultimately prevailed, with T.W. Frierson taking the win.  The individual shooter high score went to Damon Hogan with the Tennessee Safety and Health Conference team.  We at ASSP would like to thank all our sponsors and teams who made the day a success.  I would also like to thank the staff and Safety officers of the Nashville Gun Club for hosting our shoot and providing a fun safe environment.
