To those who consider themselves to be superstitious, the number 13 is a less than ideal number. It’s often associated with Friday the 13th, black cats and non-existent hotel floors. But, after the year we all just endured, we could not be more excited to celebrate the 13th Annual Lions Pride Shoot, Deja Vue Redo.

Apart from 2020, we’ve held the Lions Pride Shoot at Milford Hills in Johnson Creek for the past 12 years. If you’re new to the sport, you may be interested in learning that sporting clays simulates actual hunting situations in the field and are enjoyed by people of all ages. In fact, more than 3 million people a year shoot sporting clays either competitively or recreationally. Sporting clays is both fun and challenging as well as one of the fastest-growing sports in America. It is a unique sport that provides instant gratification and brings out one’s competitive nature.  

Our sporting clays fundraiser has become our most popular event that takes place on the second weekend in June. Both Lions and non-Lions come together to enjoy a day out in the beautiful rolling hills of Southern Wisconsin to support Lions Pride.

The day begins with an early lunch, followed by a challenging course with games and door prizes. After shooters have finished the course, they finish up their action-packed day by participating in a live auction, drinking ice cold beer and indulging in a delicious meal.

The Lions Pride Shoot may only be a one-day event, the staff has planning and preparing for months. Many small details go into the overall preparation of the fundraiser, including recruiting participants, finding sponsors, collecting both door prizes and auction items, coordinating all of the day’s events with the Milford Hills staff and recruiting volunteers to help create a successful event. We were disappointed to have to cancel last year’s event but cannot believe that we are now only days away.

As we continue to finish up the final details of the event, we’d like to give a special shoutout to our donors, sponsors, shooters and volunteers. We have first-hand experience that it takes a village of people to create a unique and enjoyable event. We look forward to being reunited in Milford Hills, we know that our 13th year will be the best one yet.. And as always, we cannot thank you enough for your endless support.

See you on Saturday!
