    Teams are needed for the Third Annual Cultural Clays Skeet Shoot Tournament benefiting the Averitt Center for the Arts, said Statesboro Arts Council Board Member Theresa Beebe Novotny.
    The event, sponsored by the Friends for the Arts, will be held Friday, October 10, at Scarborough Bluff in Scarborough,  she said.
    Registration is $400 for each four person team, and includes four lunch tickets and four t-shirts, she said.
    Shoot times are from  9 to 10:45 a.m.;  11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.; or 1 to 2:45 p.m., with lunch being served from noon to 2 p.m., Novotny said.
    Later that evening, awards for skeet shoot winners will be presented at Hugos at 6 p.m., preceded by a happy hour with free hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. There will also be a raffle, she said.
    "All shooting levels are welcome. Two boxes of shells are recommended for the seven stations in a wooded setting," she said.
    Scarborough Bluff is a beautiful background for the skeet shoot, with wooded trails offering a display of nature for participants' enjoyment as they travel from shooting station to shooting station.
     If you don't shoot skeet, the Friends of the Averitt Center have other ways to support the Center, Novotny said. Citizens or businesses can  become a station sponsor for $150 or donate an item for the raffle.
     For more information about registering a team or becoming a sponsor, please contact the Grace Adams Stewart (coastalad@frontiernet.net or 912-764-7446) or Melinda Roell (mroell@averittcenterforthearts.org or 912-212-2787).
     "It will be another very exciting year at the Averitt Center and the Skeet Shoot is a major fund raising event," she said. "Both men and women's teams are welcome to participate at all skill levels."
