5th Annual Shootin' for a Cure

Saturday, August 24th marks the 5th annual Shootin' for a Cure in Cresson, TX.  This event benefits the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.  They will also keep additional monies raised in Hood, Parker, Johnson & Tarrant Counties to help find a cure for ALL cancer.

2012 Shootin' for a Cure
The Miles For Melons team started this event back in 2009 to help one walker in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For A Cure and to help with medical expenses for one of their dearest friends who found out earlier in the year that she had stage three breast cancer.

2012 Shootin' for a Cure
The registration fee is $50 per shooter.  This $50 pays for your shooting, dinner, drinks, and one $1 raffle ticket.  If you just want to go to the event and not shoot, that will cost you $15 and you'll get dinner and drinks.  They accept cash, check, and credit card payments.   

What the ground looks like at the end of the day - Shootin' for a Cure - 2012
They will have five shooting stations. The shooting stations are set up with "Annie Oakley" style shooting.  There will be six rounds where six shooters will compete against each other trying to knock one another out based upon the hits on the clay target. If you leave a fragment of the clay after you shoot, the other shooters have a chance to shoot the piece of the clay you missed.  Winners of the six qualifying rounds will face off in the final round for the winning round gift prize.  Shooting rounds continue throughout the day.
