Rocky Mountain Pipeliners Club hosted its 8th annual clay shoot on September 8 at Kiowa Creek Sporting Club in Bennett, Colo., and named Fort Collins-based nonprofit Colorado Youth Outdoors (CYO) as the beneficiary.
“We’re thrilled to accept this donation of $6,000 in cash and $3,000 in ammo for our shooting range,” said Sara Mickelson, CYO development director. “We need a larger variety of archery bows – from left-handed to smaller sizes – and plan to use this donation to create a fully inclusive range of bows for all our guests. Thank you to everyone who participated in, organized, or sponsored this event. We sincerely appreciate the support.”
Colorado Youth Outdoors is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created in 2001. CYO’s mission is to build relationships and bring kids and parents closer through traditional outdoor recreation. To help accomplish this, CYO integrates the words Participate, Appreciate, Communicate, and Dedicate into their recreation curriculum, which they call the PACD Model. The nonprofit works to incorporate PACD into all activities, which include spin and fly fishing, archery, camping, shooting sports, and nature play.
