Once again, we are pleased to announce that in addition to the SPE-GCS Scholarship Fund this year, the committee has decided to support the Bright Light Foundation (BLF) as our outside charity. The Bright Light Foundation’s mission is to raise funds, in the spirit of compassion and fun, to assist with the medical needs of those within the oilfield community stricken by catastrophic illness. The funds raised by this foundation are distributed among selected families to assist with medical cost due to major illness. Last year this foundation, with our help, was able to assist two families and we invite each of you to visit the BLF web site to read their stories at www.bright-light-foundation.com. We think everyone will agree with the committee that this is a worthwhile foundation for the funds raised at this year’s event.
The tournament is limited to the first 700 shooters (140 five-man teams). Last year’s sponsors will have first priority to renew their sponsorship. Sponsoring companies will receive a shooting spot preference and those with sponsoring levels that include a team will be guaranteed a spot. At least one team member must be a current SPE member and T.B.A. (To Be Announced) participants are acceptable. SPE-GCS reserves the right to limit the number of team entries per company, depending upon the response to the tournament. The entry fee includes: 100-target sporting clay round, a tournament gift, food, drinks and a wonderful day of fun and fellowship. Door prizes will be awarded and several shotguns will be raffled off. Trophies will be given to the top three teams in each class and the top male and top female shooters. Please note that this tournament was sold out last year by mid-May, so get your sponsorship and team entry forms in early.
