4th Annual OATH Sporting Clays Tournament
Folks, the Portal for Team Registration, Individual Registration and Sponsorship is open, as well as the Portal for the 2016 OATH AR Build !!! Come join us on September 17, 2016 as we once again break out the shotguns and the sporting clays for a very good cause and some VERY worthy heroes. We are thoroughly excited about the 3rd Annual OATH Sporting Clays Tournament to be held at American Shooting Centers in Houston, Texas as we continue to raise awareness and support for our cause. Building off of our HUGE success at the October 3, 2015 event, we are expecting an even bigger and better turnout as we once again bring together both sides of the equation: the generous supporters of OATH, Inc. and the actual OATH Veterans that serve as the benefactors of the abundant generosity shown by these aforementioned supporters. It’s a winning situation for all involved as both sides thank each other for their support and their genuine compassion.
At our 2nd Annual OATH Sporting Clays Tournament, we saw over 200 people congregate for our Sporting Clays Tournament, our Silent Auction, and our Live Auction. For only our second OATH Sporting Clays Event, we were absolutely amazed at the amount of support given by the surrounding community as we collected $143,500 that will directly support our Heroes !!! From Shooters to Sponsors to Donors to Volunteers, we walked away from this event with full hearts and great certainty that we had succeeded in reaching out to the local population and gaining not only their understanding of the OATH mission, but also the embracement of our approach and our overall goal. Through continued word of mouth and community involvement, we are increasingly faithful that our future events will see an even bigger community impact !
From a Sponsor standpoint, we had companies such as In Sights Nutrition, LLC, 444 Bucking Bulls, LLC, Aramark , Clover Tool Co. , G&J Land & Marine Food Distributors, Inc., Veteran Energy, PDS Corporate Sales, Deepwater Subsea, Hydra Offshore Construction and Tom Brothers Ranch step up as Sponsors for the event, and without their generous support, the event would have been lacking tremendously. These companies stepped up and proudly proclaimed their support of our wounded and disabled OATH Veterans, and for that, we give them a great big Texas salute and Thank You !!!
Our OATH Veterans enjoyed the day and the fellowship, and this was clearly evident by the smiles on their faces throughout the day. Through our “All Veteran” shooting teams comprised of Registered OATH Veterans, these folks were able to interact and spend time with each other and chat about things only shared and understood by their combat brethren. We are excited about expanding upon the “All Veteran” shooting teams in order to get more of these heroes in attendance as they become more active in our various outdoors activities dedicated specifically to them !
So, in closing, we encourage you to come out and join us on September 17, 2016 as we hold our 3rd Annual OATH Sporting Clays Tournament. This event is guaranteed to be even bigger and even better than the last, and we want YOU to be part of what is considered by many to be the best sporting clays event of the year in Houston !!! If you have any questions or concerns about the clay shoot, please feel free to email Gary Bartels
