Tour de Clays-Stop #3
225 FM 834 Road West
March 3, 2018
Pecan Meadows welcomed the Lady Clay Shooters with open arms and a touch of class on our Third Stop of the Tour de Clays. As the ladies gathered outside the clubhouse, we couldn’t decide what to appreciate the most-the incredible spring weather, the collection of roses, the sugared pecans, fresh doughnuts, or the hospitality that we were greeted with when we arrived. And as always…everyone enjoyed the camaraderie among the shooters!
The ladies squadded up and took to the course pushing buggies, laughing, and catching up on what had been happening over winter. We had some great target presentations and more than once remarks about being out in the incredible weather echoed throughout the course. Roses hung from carts and sugared pecans were sampled. Shots were fired and targets were broken. Friendships were made.
If you have been around the Lady Clay Shooters for any time, you know that nothing can stop us from loading our guns and breaking some targets!!! Although rain had threatened our event for several weeks prior, the staff at Pecan Meadows went out of their way to reset the course to keep our feet dry. An early morning power outage didn’t stop us either. A call to the local power company had them arriving just in time. After shooting, we arrived back at the clubhouse to find the staff busy plugging in the crockpots and stirring the concoctions.
Lunch was no exception to the day. Everyone was treated to a smorgasbord of homemade soups and chilis. Salad was served and frequently a second piece of cornbread made it onto a plate and into a mouth. The dessert table was the grand finale!!! There was something for everyone’s sweet tooth! If you went home hungry, it was your own fault! A special thanks goes out to all the ladies who contributed to lunch.
If you didn’t get to join us on the Tour or even if you did, Pecan Meadows is a great place to visit. It is located in the middle of the Texas woodlands off Highway 835 Road West in Hardin; just eight miles north of Liberty. Enjoy breaking clays on the 12 station course that is nestled among the pecan trees on the 125 acre shooting grounds. Pecan Meadows offers a variety of target presentations including rabbit, teal, battue, standard, and midi shots. Shoot out over ponds and through the woods as you make your way across the course. Pecan Meadows is worth the drive!
