Breaking Clays to Save the Bay
August 19, 2018


We are located at 26430 Mullinix Mill Rd., Mt Airy, Md. 21771 near Damascus, Maryland.
Come, support the effort, and join the fun even if you do not shoot.

The Damascus chapter of the Izaak Walton League is hosting their annual "Breaking Clays to Save the Bay" fun shoot on August 19th. Proceeds from this event go to PPTU to assist in our conservation and educational programs. The event is open to the public, so any PPTU member who would like to stop by and take a "shot" at breaking some clays is more than welcome. The event is from 10 to 3. The cost is $30 which gets you two rounds of trap or skeet, lunch, and a towel or hat. If you do come by, please wear any PPTU shirts or hats that you have or anything to show that fly fishers are indeed supporting the event. Again, all the proceeds go to the Potomac Patuxent Chapter of Trout Unlimited so this event deserves your support!
