Mega Marksmen Set to Attend 2nd Annual Boy Scouts Fundraiser

Olympic medalist Corey Cogdell and world-renowned shooting instructor Chris Batha will be among the celebrity guests of the Second Annual SCI Foundation & Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Sporting Clays Fundraiser occurring Feb. 4, 2014. All the events proceeds benefit the youth education programs of both SCI Foundation and BSA.”I’m a hunter, and I have experienced first-hand the positive impact that SCI Foundation’s outreach programs have for getting more young adults into our sport,” said Olympic medalist Corey Cogdell. “And additional thanks go to Krieghoff International, who is a committed corporate partner, dedicated to seeing our outdoor heritage passed on to the next generation.”

Chris Batha shares Cogdell’s enthusiasm for the event and the programs it supports.

“The Boy Scouts and sporting clays are both traditions that were started in the U.K.,” said Batha. “It only seems fitting that even in modern times these skill development activities unite to raise awareness and funds for our traditional outdoor and sporting pursuits.”

The Boy Scouts of America and SCI Foundation promotes education worldwide and has donated generously in support of its respective projects and programs.

“Our goal at SCI Foundation is to deliver high quality results for youth education and outreach on hunting and sustainable-use. It would not be possible without the amazing support of Krieghoff, Corey, and Chris who are true ambassadors for all hunters worldwide. Please join us for the Second Annual SCI Foundation and BSA Sporting Clays Fundraiser on Feb. 4, 2014,” concluded SCI Foundation President Joe Hosmer.

Krieghoff International has donated a new Krieghoff K-80 Pro Sporter over/under, 12 gauge shotgun with 32-inch barrels for the event.  A sweepstakes drawing for the gun will be one of the highlights of the Second Annual SCI Foundation & BSAF Sporting Clays Fundraiser. Every shooter who registers for the competition will receive one ticket to the drawing, with additional tickets available for $100 apiece. A maximum of 300 tickets will be sold, so register soon to secure your spot for February 4th.
