Thank you for your support of the Gateway Area Chapter of Safari Club International Annual Veteran’s Sporting Clay Shoot at NILO Farms!

We enjoyed hosting 120 shooters with over 80 veterans joining us for a morning and afternoon sporting clay shoot in 2019.   Lunch and lots of attendance prizes were provided!

Due to current health department restrictions, we made the difficult choice to cancel our 2020 Event.

Instead, we had a raffle to raise funds for Camp Hope where we collected $1,660.  The Chapter matched those funds making the total donation $3,660.

Camp Hope is a retreat for military veterans wounded in the War on Terror. Their mission is to honor the fallen by helping the wounded; offering all expenses paid adventures and comradery for our service men and women that gave selflessly for our freedoms. To learn more about Camp Hope please visit their web site at

Pictured below are Dave Stokes, President of The Gateway Area Chapter and John Wilkerson, Chapter Board Member, presenting a check to Mike White, the Founder of Camp Hope.

It is an honor to present the Chapter donation to such a worthy organization.  We hope there are many more years to come.

Please enjoy some of the photos from previous events below and we hope to see you in October 2021 for the next Shoot for the Vets Event!
