Lonesome Dove Fest to host two shooting events
KARNES CITY -- As part of the annual Lonesome Dove Fest, held each year at the Karnes County Fairgrounds, a team sporting clays competition is held. This year, the Karnes County Rotary Club, the event’s organizers, will host a second shooting competition, allowing the many oil and gas companies in the area to compete for bragging rights, and a traveling trophy to be put back on the line each year.
This year’s new event, the Black Gold Shootout, will be a five-stand sporting clays competition for teams of five. The event will be held Friday, Sept. 23, beginning at 4 p.m., and all proceeds will benefit the county’s charitable causes and youth scholarships. The entry fee is $500 per team, and participants must bring their own guns.
In addition to this new event, the Lonesome Dove Fest will also feature its annual team shooting competition. The walk through sporting clays event is open to men, women, and youth; and prizes will be awarded in each division. The cost is $400 for a group of five, which also includes five event wristbands, three parking permits, and five goodie bags.
