Rock Lake Clay shoot canceled
November 19, 2020
ST. JOHN — Rock Lake Sporting Clays has canceled its fund-raising shoot for this Saturday, Nov. 21.
Gary Newton, owner of the Rock Lake Sporting Clays on Stevens Road, confirmed the cancelation Monday.
“Due to the governor’s order to shut down, we care canceling” he said. “We were almost booked up.”
Newton said the event will be rescheduled after the governor’s shutdown order is lifted.
“Due to the governors shutdown, we’re only allowed to have five people at one time,” he said. “We had scheduled up to 50 people.”
The event is put on as a benefit for the El’Katif Shriner’s Sportsman, which raises funds for recreational opportunities for children.
“It actually started quite a few years ago when Masons got together to support the El’Katif Shriner’s Sportsman group,” he said, adding:
“Right now, we’re looking for January for a rescheduled shoot,” he said.
