The Second Annual North Branch Area Education Foundation Shooting Clays Tournament was held April 12 at Wings North in Pine City. Teams of four shooters each shot at five clay targets released from 10 stations on a trail in the woods. Event organizer Al Schulz from Stearns Bank commented that the number of participants nearly doubled from last year, and the NBAEF hopes the event continues to grow. The team from County Market, represented by Tony Peterson, Joe Bishman, Joe Hamilton, and Dave Nordberg (top), won the tournament with a score of 124. Second place with a score of 104 was Brian Sperry, Josh Sperry, Devan DeBitzan, and Jack Barrows from Anderson Koch Ford. Dave Norberg from Dominos Pizza had the high score of the day with a 37 out of a possible 50.
The NBAEF would like to thank all of the participants and sponsors. Proceeds from the event will be added to the grant funding for 2015.
The main fundraiser for the NBAEF will be Oct. 4 at Spectacular Events featuring comedians David Crowe and Brian Miller.
