Living up to their claim that the Averitt Center offers something for everyone, the Averitt Center for the Arts invites all outdoor enthusiasts, men and women alike, to participate in their 4th Annual Cultural Clay Shoot on Oct. 9 at Scarborough Bluff.

Cultural Clays is held on the Howard family property in Scarborough, about 20 minutes outside of Statesboro. For the past four years, Cultural Clays provides area shooters the opportunity to shoot on this beautifully maintained private course.

“We are excited about this year’s event,” said Executive Director Tim Chapman. “The Clay Shoot is one of our most fun events — I love spending the day out at the Howard’s property in Scarborough. It’s beautiful, and everyone who participates has a great time.”

The Averitt Center is currently seeking four-person teams to participate at either 9:30 a.m. or noon.

“The course takes about an hour to shoot through,” explained Chapman. “So we offer two starting times to accommodate everyone without having to rush through the course.”

The cost is $100 per team member — which includes lunch and a personal cooler packed full of gifts from area businesses. Station sponsorships are also available for $100. This includes signage at the event and some follow up advertising for participating businesses.

“All proceeds benefit the Averitt Center,” said Chapman. “We are a non-profit entity and our main means of support is through our fundraisers, advertisers and Friends of the Arts memberships.”
