Herndon Resident Takes State Championshop in Sporting Clays Shootout
Herndon resident James McGowan emerged as top gun in the NSCA (National Sporting Clays Association) Virginia State Championship at Primland this past weekend, taking the top prize of $1,000.
He scored 187 out of 200 targets on Saturday and Sunday. The runner-up was Barry Moore Jr., of Pulaski, who shot a 185 and took home $500. Third place went to David Collins Jr of Ruther Glen. Only three targets separated first through third place.
More than 200 amateur shooters took part in the four-day event, sharing in $10,000 in prize monies distributed to the winners in multiple categories. The competitions included 50 bird sub-gauge events in .410, 20, and 28 gauges, pump gun and side by side events on Thursday through Saturday.
The Town is preparing for this year's festival, to take place on Monday, Sept. 2 from 12-6 p.m. on the Town Green at 777 Lynn Street next to the Municipal Building.
Not only will there be a wide range of live music, 12 local Virginia wineries and microbreweries, a craft show and sponsorship gallery, culinary demonstrations and food vendors, but you can feel good knowing that a percentage of the proceeds from the festival benefit local scholarship programs.
The Town of Herndon Parks and Recreation Department produces the event, working in conjunction with the Herndon Woman’s Club.
