Great Times at the 6th Annual MBI-PAC Sporting Clay Builders’ Classic Events!

The powder may still be smoking off everyone’s guns, but it’s time to recap the 6th Annual Sporting Clay Builders’ Classic. We had a hot day out in Eastern Iowa (Riverside) on Sep. 20, and a beautiful cool day in Central Iowa (Waukee) yesterday on Sep. 27. Both shoots again were very successful and turned out 175 Shooters again (15 teams in Eastern Iowa, 21 Teams in Central Iowa).

This year, MBI members raised over $40,000 for the MBI-PAC to support pro-business, pro-construction policymakers at the Capitol. This event continues in the great MBI tradition of bringing together industry colleagues for a day of construction camaraderie.

So let’s first congratulate our winning teams, and keep in mind, these scores are out of 500 total shots.
