HCA Clay Shoot Tournament 2019
Wednesday, May 29, 2019
On April 5th, the largest crowd in the history of the HCA clay shoot tournament came out to kill some clays. The Houston Contractors Association held its annual clay shoot tournament at the Westside Sporting Grounds in Katy, Texas. This expansive gun range hosted the HCA shooters on all three of its courses. Over 90 four-person teams registered for this prominent event. At the 10:00 am shotgun start, the men and women hopped on their golf carts and headed to their stations.
Three hours later, the barn style pavilion where the lunch, awards, and raffle were to take place welcomed in a steady stream of finished shooters. Fried catfish, chicken fried steak, hush puppies, and all the fixin’s were on the menu that day. Clay Shoot Committee Chairman Will Peltier of Peltier Brothers Construction thanked everyone for coming out and complimented everyone on their shooting scores. He announced the winners as the following:
