“This has become a fun event for our avid sportsmen,” said Principal Richard Finlayson. “Our alumni are actively involved in organizing and participating in this event for such a worthy cause and friends of ACA in our surrounding area contribute generously.”
The best overall shooter at the event was Josiah Bullock who also won the Flush and Flurry Yeti cooler prize, donated by Waukeenah Fertilizer. Coming in first place at the event was the Capital Truck team from Tallahassee, followed by Madison Dental Associates in second place. Other corporate teams included: Big Bend Logging/Services, C.W. Roberts Contracting, Clerk of Court Kirk Reams, North Florida Abstract & Title Company, Southeastern Enterprises of the Big Bend and Vascular Surgery Associates. The 50/50 cash drawing was won by Danny Deason.
Participants and their guests were treated to a delicious continental breakfast provided by ACA alumni and the Jefferson County Farmer’s Market with snacks and drinks during the shoot provided by Coke and Quality Snacks and Vending. Lunch was donated by ACA alumnus J.T. Surles, owner of Brick House Eatery, which included: BBQ pork, chicken, ribs, potato salad, and cole slaw with homemade desserts prepared made by alumni and tea in a colorful souvenir cup.
