The Northwest Missouri Sportsman’s Club held its 5th Annual Outdoor Triathlon, a fundraising event for the club, August 13, 2016, at Atchison County Shooting Sports and Rock Port Golf and Country Club. The purpose of the event is to raise money to fund youth activities throughout the year, such as the Youth Turkey Check Station, Youth Shooting Clinic, Youth Deer Check Station and scholarships. In total, 44 participants took part in the event, which consisted of a trap shoot, long range rifle shoot, and a nine-hole golf scramble. All involved had a great time.
Individual event winners were as follow:
Trap Shoot – Clodfelter Insurance

In third place was Kevin Wright’s team (Kevin Wright, Ben Voltmer, Stephen Wright, and Jake Smith). Finishing second was Clodfelter Insurance (Jim Clodfelter, Paul Zimmerman, Stan Griffin, and Ermal Wilson). The overall champion was the Chris Salenas team.
