Welcome to GTCC Sporting Clays Challenge

Join Us Friday, May 18, 2018

The GTCC Sporting Clays Challenge was created in 2014 to provide scholarships, services, and opportunities to benefit veterans and our public safety educational programs. This year’s event will feature a morning shoot with a 14-station course and is open to 25 teams of four. Shooters will enjoy a great event, the chance to network and promote their business, and the opportunity to help raise money for these important GTCC programs.

You may have heard of sporting clays referred to as “golf with a shotgun,” and that’s a fair comparison. Like golf courses, no two sporting clays courses are alike, and terrain and background have a lot to do with how targets are presented. Since no two courses are alike, shooters travel to different courses to experience variety.

Guilford County Sheriff’s Office

GTCC Instructor, Basic Law Enforcement Training

I am from a law enforcement family; my father was chief of police of a local agency. When I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement. I have always had a strong desire to help other people, and listening to stories my father told about his career, it sounded like an exciting occupation. It has proven to be more exciting than I could have imagined. There is almost no limit to the fascinating things I have seen and been a part of during my career.

I established a base of knowledge by attaining an associate degree in Law Enforcement Technology from GTCC as soon as I finished high school. The education I received has served me well over the past 22 years. I don’t think I would be where I am today without the start I got at GTCC.
