Branson, Missouri – October 9-13, 2019 Ducks Unlimited will host its inaugural Eastern Continental Shoot for competitive sporting clay shooters Oct. 9-13 at the world-class Bass Pro Shops Shooting Academy in Branson.
The shooting competition features thousands of dollars in prizes and is presented by Weatherby. The Bass Pro Shops Shooting Academy offers a state-of-the-art shooting sports experience in front of the stunning backdrop of Table Rock Lake.
The Eastern Continental Shoot offers a 100-target prelim and 200-target main event, sub-gauge and Super Sporting squad events and otherregular events including 5-STAND and several other side games. All events are governed by National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) rules, but membership in the NSCA is not required for a shooter to participate in this tournament.
This event is patterned after Ducks Unlimited’s popular Ducks in the Desert Las Vegas Continental Shoot, held each February for the past 33 years. The 2019 Las Vegas event was its most successful ever, thanks to 450 participants from 27 states and multiple countries taking part in the five-day tournament.
The Eastern Continental Shoot is limited to 250 shooting participants. Early bird registration ends Sept. 10, and no refunds are allowed after Sept. 1.
Major Sponsor Big Cedar Lodge is the host hotel, but numerous other hotels are available in the area. All offer special rates for shooters and their families. The rates are only available via phone booking, not online, using code DUCKS19.
