Ernest C. Trefz Memorial Sporting Clays Invitational

About This Event

Please join us at the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley as we host the Ernest C. Trefz Memorial Sporting Clays Invitational at the Ten Mile River Preserve in Dover Plains, NY on Friday, August 25, 2017. The event will benefit critically ill children and their families in the Hudson Valley.

Ten Mile River Preserve offers world class stations for the sport of clay pigeon shooting. Often described as golf with a shotgun, the sport differs from skeet and trap shooting in that it involves shooting clays at various locations which are launched at different velocities and angles.

This 6th annual charity sporting clays event has been renamed for the late Mr. Trefz (1932-2017), who was a noted businessman, philanthropist and best known for operating 44 area McDonald’s restaurants. He was the longtime CEO of the Trefz Corporation, a family property management business, and the namesake of the University of Bridgeport’s business school.

Individual tickets cost $250 per person and sponsorships are available.

8:00 am - 9:15 am: Coffee/Breakfast and Registration
8:30 am - 9:15 am: Practice Shooting
9:15 am: Safety Orientation
9:30 am - 12:30 pm: Shooting Competition
