The River Heights Chamber of Commerce is excited to host its Fourth Annual Clay Shoot sponsored by Frattalone Companies on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, at the South St. Paul Rod and Gun Club.  Beginners are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Clay or trap shooting is growing exponentially in popularity across all ages and genders. It is the only sport where men and women compete together on equal footing. No experience needed – Beginners Welcome! Novice or seasoned, it is time to test your skills.

Clay shooting is a sport you can enjoy by yourself or with a team. Brian Martell of MidWest Telecom, and Clay Shoot supporter believes, “It is a great environment for networking and a prime opportunity for businesses to sponsor the event.  Businesses can sponsor a station, a sporting game or one of many other options.”  Since first being introduced to the sport at the Chamber’s inaugural event, Martell now shoots regularly and uses his time at the Gun Club for team building and networking.

In addition to the traditional eight-station course, the event includes two popular games from last year. Players can vie for the title of Annie Oakley in the popular last shooter standing contest and teams of two can compete in the Duck Flurry, shooting from a duck tower that throws clays in multiple directions.

Prizes will be awarded to teams with the top course scores and the contest winners. Guns are available for those not using their own. Shells, protective eyewear and earplugs are provided at check-in. Registration, sponsorship opportunities and event details are available at www.riverheights.com/clayshoot2020.

Inver Grove Heights/South Saint Paul – The River Heights Chamber of Commerce invites the community to golf in the Chamber’s Annual Golf Classic fundraiser presented by Waterous Company on Tuesday, August 18th at Southview Country Club, 239 E. Mendota Road, West St. Paul.

August 18 is a new date, yet, we are looking forward to the same great fun the Golf Classic brings every year.  Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with a breakfast-to-go pickup available for all golfers.  For your convenience, passports are included in this year’s registration price and include one mulligan, one gimmie string and entry into both the putting and the chipping contests.  The driving range is open for practice and shot-gun start for teams is at 10:00 a.m.

There will be many fun contests on the course, and a ball drop and boxed lunch following the day’s play that may be enjoyed on the patio or to-go.  Due to current health considerations and course guidelines in compliance with State regulations for COVID-19, all golfers are to adhere to all safety and social distancing guidelines. Two golfers may ride in a cart (there is a plastic barrier in place between passengers). In addition, there will not be an awards banquet dinner; results of the tournament will be emailed to golfers the day following the event. Team photos will be taken on the course and shared in Chamber communications and social media following the event.

“Seeing people face-to-face is exactly the kind of change of pace I think many people are craving right now, and participating in the Golf Tournament is the chance to do that in a place that is safe, outside, supporting an area business and supporting the Chamber of Commerce,” says Chairman of the Board, Adam Bengtson. One of the most fun parts of the day is networking with the sponsors who sit at each hole on the course.  “It’s always fun to see what unique events our sponsors come up with,” notes Michele Hein of Tandem Printing, Golf Task Force Chair.

Register yourself or your foursome to golf at the rate of $175/golfer.  Special thanks to these businesses for being major sponsors of the tournament: Ameritek International, MidWestOne Bank, Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures and Sanimax USA LLC – to see more area businesses supporting this event or to register to play, visit us online at www.riverheights.com/golf2020 or call the River Heights Chamber of Commerce at 651.451.2266. The annual tournament is held rain or shine.
