    Hello, I am selling Raffle tickets on behalf of the Mason-Dixon Clay Busters, a youth clay target shooting team that was first organized in 2006. The team competes under the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) put together by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

    The Scholastic Clay Target Program provides school-age participants with the opportunity to showcase their competitive shooting skills and earn state and national recognition. The program is designed to instill in participants safe firearms handling, commitment, responsibility, leadership and teamwork.

    Our team has witnessed tremendous growth, more then doubling in the past year. We now have over 30 young people participating on the team. This is a great privilege and confirms the need for this type of program. It also presents a wonderful opportunity to mentor and expose these young people to firearm safety the shooting sports. As you may already know, the cost of competitive shooting, and recreational shooting in general, has sky-rocketed over recent years and many of our young people are depending on financial assistance in order to participate in our program.

    It was our goal when we started this program that cost alone should not be the determining factor in a young person’s ability to participate. This goal has been very hard to achieve with today’s ever increasing costs. Would you consider helping us with our goal? Without a helping hand, this program could not survive.

    Ticket contributions are $5 each or $20 per book of four. The prize drawing will take place on or about December 29, 2008. (See list of prizes below) All of the proceeds go directly back to our kids. Specifically, the money raised from this fundraiser will go toward Team Uniforms, Awards (NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program), Ammunition, Targets, Shooting Equipment and hopefully if we raise enough money, additional Club Loaner Guns. We currently have 4 kids on the team do not own a gun.

    Bottom-line, everything we raise goes directly back to our kids. Our home clubs do not charge us any range fees.

    If you would like to know more about the Mason-Dixon Clay Busters please visit our web site (www.masondixonclaybusters.com). There you will find our many accomplishments including the various local and national recognition that this young program has already received. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like additional information.

    I know you must get many requests of this kind, and I appreciate you considering the Mason-Dixon Clay Busters Youth Trap Team.

    Sincerely,

    Roger Beardsley<br>

    A couple of questions. How will winners be notified and receive their prizes? Any discount for multiple tickets, other than the 4 for $20.

    Thanks Guys,
    You can send a check made out to:

    Mason-Dixon Clay Busters

    ...and send it to:

    Roger Beardsley<br>
    213 Pine Street<br>
    Glen Rock, PA 17327<br>

    ...make sure you include your Name, Address, Phone and Email if you have one. It says on the ticket that you need no be present to win but it does not specifically say how they are going to contact the winners.

    ...also, unfortunately there is no discount for multipliable tickets. The only reason they are listed like that is that they are grouped in packs of 4. If you have any questions please let me know.



    Thank you,<br>
