Lonoke, Arkansas – June 30, 2021 – Remington Ammunition, in partnership with the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation, has been named the recipient of a generous MidwayUSA Foundation Range Development Grant. The grant has been awarded to the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation and will be used at the Remington Gun Club facility to build a new sporting clays course. This state-of-the-art facility will be open to youth as well as shooters of all ages. The course is on track to open late summer 2021.
“Remington looks forward to hosting thousands of youth shooters from across the nation for future events at our gun club,” said Jon Zinnel, Conservation Program Manager for Remington Ammunition. “Without the grant from the MidwayUSA Foundation and the support of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation, building this new course wouldn’t have been possible.”
The clays course will be a welcome addition to Remington’s historic Gun Club, a public trap and skeet club located on the grounds of the Remington Ammunition plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. The club, also soon expanding to include a retail store addition, welcomes thousands of shooters annually and is open year-round.
“Remington Ammunition’s addition of a sporting clays facility will provide Arkansas youth with a top-notch sporting facility to practice and compete,” said Deke Whitbeck, President of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation. “We look forward to our partnership with Remington Ammunition and introducing thousands of Arkansas youth to another clay target shooting opportunity.“
The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain and grow the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Every donation made is tax-deductible and allows the Foundation to assist in expanding and enhancing the leadership, skills, confidence and disciple of today’s youth through shooting sports activities.
