“The Smokies Cup was the biggest, most successful shoot held at Biltmore Sporting Clays Club so far this year,” said Rob Powell, a Friends of the Smokies board member. “It took a lot of extra work by staff and volunteers to pull it off with social distancing. We had heavy rain the first day but they kept us pretty dry. My grandson said he had ‘never had a better time.”
Thirty teams competed in the clay shoot throughout the three-day event, which was bolstered by a laundry list of 19 sponsors. Proceeds will benefit programs and projects that help ensure America’s most-visited national park is preserved and protected for generations to come.
