Ready, Set, PULL! For Wesleyan Sporting Clays Classic Returning for Second Year

ROCKY MOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA – On Thursday, October 13 North Carolina Wesleyan University (NCWU) will host its second annual PULL! For Wesleyan Bishops Sporting Clays Classic. The fundraising event will be held at one of the finest clay shooting courses in the state—Rose Hill Farm Sporting Clays and Hunting Preserve in Nashville, NC. All proceeds from this event will support various efforts to help Wesleyan students in their journey for lifelong learning and achievement as they prepare to make a difference in the communities where they’ll live and serve.

Wimberly Braswell competes in the inaugural Bishops Sporting Clays Classic as part of the Braswell Family Farms team in 2021.

Sponsorship of the Bishops Sporting Clays Classic gives businesses and individuals the chance to enjoy a day of fun in the great outdoors while entertaining special clients, vendors or potential clients and strengthening those relationships in a unique and unforgettable atmosphere. Shooters can participate recreationally or competitively.

“The beauty of Rose Hill Farms, the fun of the sport itself for both beginners and experts, and the strengthening of relationships makes this event so enjoyable,” states Mark Hinson, Senior Executive for Philanthropic Engagement at NC Wesleyan. “As Wesleyan prepares students and alumni for career opportunities in this region, having companies and industries participate in this event helps us develop connections that can benefit our students and community.”

Check-in will begin at noon, followed by lunch with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start. There will also be raffle items and awards in various categories. The entry fee is $750 for a four-person team, which includes all necessary ammo for each participant and eye/ear protection.
