Joining the Lady Clay Shooters is as easy as busting a “soft” target! Just join our email list at the JOIN tab and you will receive a personal reply from one of our board members. If you have additional questions, you may contact Barbara Garney at (281) 851-2671 or Karen Ward at (713) 962-3207.
Eye and ear protection is required at all times on the range for all shooters and spectators. Most gun ranges will have inexpensive ear plugs available, and your regular sunglasses or glasses will serve for eye protection. Of course, you will also need a shotgun and ammunition. If you do not own your own shotgun, some ranges have rental guns available. Check the range website that you are visiting to learn if rental guns are available and to make sure you have the appropriate ammunition for the range.
If you are a beginner, you are just the person we are looking for! Our spring and summer leagues are 76 targets nightly. This is a great way to start out and build up stamina. Our group is very approachable and someone will gladly take you under their wing and show you the ropes. We will teach you shooting etiquette, gun safety, and even give you some tips on smashing clays. We like to say, “If you are new to the group, you won’t be for long!”
While we welcome and encourage beginners, we also have a spot for you! Many of our ladies compete in charity and registered NSCA events. We are proud to say that some of our ladies have been named to the All-American Team. Becoming a Lady Clay Shooter is a great way to meet other ladies that shoot competitively and to find a shooting partner. It is always fun to see each other at events, practice target presentations, and visit new ranges around the state.
Absolutely! We always welcome new shooters and spectators. Remember, eye and ear protection is required for everyone out on the course. But this comes with a WARNING! Once you come visit, you WILL want to join us!
Fun, fun, & more fun! Prior to the shoot, you will find women milling around with their shotguns, clay carts buzzing about, laughter, and a sense of excitement in the air. If you let us know ahead of time, we will have someone on the look-out for you and make sure you are squadded with seasoned shooters. Our board members are easy to spot in our lime-green shirts. They, along with other members will be more than happy to welcome you, teach you the routines and proper shooting etiquette, and even give you a few tips. Remember, we were all new to this at one time. Our goal is make you feel welcome and to have you return again and again.
We do not hold structured monthly meetings, nor do we charge for membership. We publish a calendar of events. We welcome you to participate in as many of these events as you like. Members also get together informally to practice and shoot in other shoots that are not hosted by the Lady Clay Shooters.
Lady Clay Shooters welcomes sub-junior shooters under the age of 16 and junior shooters between the ages of 16 and 21. We ask that all shooters are able to load and handle the gun in a safe manner and are willing to attempt targets. If you are new to the sport, low-cost instruction is available prior to our event.
