2018 Ernest C. Trefz Memorial Sporting Clays Invitational
About This Event
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 7th annual charity sporting clays event is named 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 sponsorship opportunities are available. Guns and ammo will be provided for 12 gauge and 20 gauge.
