I know several of y’all have probably heard about it but we’re trying to do one final push to advertise for this event! For those that don’t know about it, we are holding a 3-D Archery shoot and live auction at Roosevelt State Park in Morton, MS this Saturday August 17th for Reggie Puckett’s family, the fallen Outtech/Hoyt Sales Rep who was killed in a boating accident on June 5th, 2013. Unfortunately Reggie did not have life insurance. His wife, Connie, is a teacher’s assistant and has a little boy. She’s working to try and become a teacher to make a slightly better income but needs our help along the way. We’ve all heard how badly teacher’s are paid, imagine what a teacher’s assistant makes. Every penny of the proceeds will go directly to his family. I know it’s a long drive for several people in Georgia, but Reggie was born and raised in Georgia (Douglasville, I believe). He worked for several sporting goods stores throughout GA and shot competition 3-D archery tournaments all over before he became a sales representative for Outtech/Hoyt and was transferred to MS, where’s he lived for about 7 years. Several dealers and shooters up there should know him and we tried to plan the location of the shoot on the east side of MS to accommodate his family from GA coming down and any other shooters from up that way.The shoot will begin at 8am and end at 5pm (when we’ll take the last entry). Shooters are welcome any time of the day! After the shoot we will have a live auction in the Livingston Performing Arts Center (which will be indoors in the air conditioner)set to begin at 6pm. We’ve had tons of manufacturers donate products and a few hunts donated. We have products from Swarovski, Leupold, Smith and Wesson, H&R, Weatherby, UnderAmour, Hardcore Decoy, Summit Treestands, Millennium Treestands, Hunter’s Safety Systems, Escort Shotguns, Zeiss Optics, PSE, Bear Archery, HHA, Rhinehart and tons more! I’ll try and figure out how to attach a picture to the post so you guys can see the flyer, it has alittle bit more details about how the event is broken down for the shoot. But we will have eight categories of shooters (Men’s Movable, Men’s Fixed, Women’s Traditional, Young Adult, Youth, Eagle and Jr. Eagle) and we’ll have two separate ranges. It’s $20 per adult to shoot the range and $10 for youth. We will also have two novelty shoots. We have prizes for places in each category and the novelties. Also, we will have a tent at registration selling LOTS of stuff and we will be serving plate lunches that day at the park! We really have worked hard to make this event a great success for Reggie’s family but now need as much community support as we can get to come out and enjoy this with us!
