Record Observer - - Senior Satellite -

CENTREVILLE — Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice hosted its first sport­ing clay tour­na­ment for 70 shoot­ers on Sept. 23 at Schrader’s Out­doors in Hen­der­son. The event raised more than $11,650 that will be in­vested in pri­or­i­ties that con­sider the cur­rent and fu­ture needs of the res­i­dents it serves in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caro­line coun­ties.

The 70 shoot­ers who par­tic­i­pated in the Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice sport­ing clay tour­na­ment moved through Schrader’s world-class sport­ing clay course and par­tic­i­pated in many ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing shoot­ing the five stand and long bird and wacky rab­bit com­pe­ti­tions. Raffle and door prizes were also awarded at the clos­ing re­cep­tion.

“As a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice re­lies on the fi­nan­cial sup­port of the community to en­sure that we are al­ways here for chil­dren, teens and adults who need us when they have been di­ag­nosed with a life-lim­it­ing ill­ness or grieve the death of a loved one,” said ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor Heather Guerieri. “We thank the shoot­ers, spon­sors and vol­un­teers who sup­ported us and Schrader’s Out­doors for their ex­pert man­age­ment of the tour­na­ment.”

Sta­tion spon­sors for the Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice Sport­ing Clay Tour­na­ment were David A. Bram­ble Inc., P&M Hy­draulics and Ru­ral Mary­land Coun­cil.

Range spon­sors were Co­hee De­sign Build, Inc., DMS & As­so­ci­ates, Mary­land Ap­pli­ance Re­pair, LLC, Pixel Print & Post, J.C. Warner, Wil­low Con­struc­tion and Pre­ci­sion Print­ing & Em­broi­dery.
