    At SouthernMoss' side forever!
    BADF and Streamlight offer a limited number of paid scholarships to individuals wishing to attend the Cajun Elite Shooting Event on April 22-23, 2005.

    These scholarships will be offered to challenged shooters with individual incomes of $20,000 or less annually. They will pay for your entrance fee, motel room for two nights and six boxes of shotgun shells. Sporting clays is an event that many disabled people have found to be enjoyable when the course is accessible and the shoot is structured such as this one. You don’t have to have any previous experience shooting clays, and Frank can even try to help you locate a loaner gun if needed.

    Please see the information below on the event. If you are seriously interested please email the answers to the questions to cajunclays@yahoo.com as soon as possible. Each person accepted for a scholarship will be required to pay a $50 deposit that will be refunded at the event.

    If you would like to participate and make over the $20,000 limit, or would be interested in just paying your own way, please contact Frank Dennis from the information below.
