All skill levels are encouraged to participate, with participation ranging from top shooters in state to beginners. Awards will be handed out for skill and for raising funds to help provide food for Pierce County individuals and families in need.
A barbecue is included and participants are encouraged to find friends and family to pledge money for their efforts.
All funds raised will support the Emergency Food network to ensure that no person goes hungry.
