      The Averitt Center for the Arts invites all outdoor enthusiasts to participate in the Sixth Annual Cultural Clays Shoot on Friday, Oct. 14 at Scarborough Bluff.
      Cultural Clays is held on the Howard family property, about 20 minutes outside of Statesboro. For the past six years, the event has provided area shooters the opportunity to shoot on a beautifully maintained private course.
      For this year, the shoot is set for a Bulloch County public schools half-day allowing youth shooters the opportunity to join in the fun. All youth shooters must have passed the hunter's safety course and be accompanied by an adult at all times.
      "We are excited about this year's event ," said Tim Chapman, executive director of the Averitt Center. "The Clay Shoot is one of our most enjoyable events - I love spending the day out at the Howard's property in Scarborough. It's beautiful and everyone who participates has a great time."
      The Averitt Center is currently seeking four-person teams to participate at either 9:30 am or Noon.
      "The course takes about an hour to shoot through," Chapman said. "So we offer two starting times to accommodate everyone without having to rush through the course."
      The cost is $125 per team member with a cookout lunch provided and an after-hours gathering at Applebee's. Raffle prizes and complementary gift packages will be given away, as well. Station sponsors are also available for $100 which includes signage at the event as well as follow up advertising for participating businesses.
      "All proceeds benefit the Averitt Center," Chapman said. "We are a non-profit entity and our main means of support is through our fundraisers, advertisers and Friends of the Arts memberships."
