Sporting Clays Shoot title

early 130 shooters enjoyed blue skies and sun at the 2023 Associated General Contractors of Alaska Sporting Clays Shoot on August 18. Twenty-two teams descended on the Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park—the largest event of its kind in AGC history. Afterward, participants enjoyed burgers and hot dogs provided by CGC Services and Swalling General Contractors, grilled up by volunteers from AIH.

Granite Construction Team 1, made up of Chad Schonbeck, Derek Morgan, Dave Laster, Alex Baham, and David Eller took first place with 425 Points. In second place with 416 points was Universal Welding & Fabrication, a team made up of John Carlson, Jennifer Starck, Kai Starck, Martin Stewart, and Bryce Armstrong. Swalling General Contractors rounded out the winner’s circle with 398 points, enough to earn third place for shooters Paul Swalling, David Kabella, John Martin, Carl Nevada, and Matt Thon.

Congratulations to all the teams who participated, and a special thank you to our Clay Shoot Committee. Thank you to our major sponsor, Shoreside Petroleum, Inc., and to all the other sponsors who contributed to make the event a success.
