Waxhaw, NC – Lucky Clays Farm was the Event Sponsor of the 2nd Annual First Responders Cup event, a clay shooting competition among First Responders to benefit law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services training at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC). The event took place May 10, 2013 at Meadow Wood Farm in Waxhaw, NC.
This year’s First Responders Cup opened with the GNAT Shooter’s Challenge, a new challenge that has participants aiming for an RC airplane-version of a Military Target Drone that can fly from 20-70mph and has exploding clays attached to target. Following the challenge, participants went through orientation and then kicked-off the 15-station clay competition.
The First Responders Cup is part of the all-day CPCC Sporting Clays Classic that also includes the Clay Pigeon Challenge Cup. The Classic benefits the CPCC Foundation to generate private financial support to further the mission of Central Piedmont Community College. CPCC’s Public Safety and Healthcare Departments provide basic training, advance training and skills maintenance to Charlotte’s community of First Responders. Public Safety, Basic Law Enforcement, Fire Fighter and Emergency Medical Services training help First Responders meet the requirements to obtain licensure and certification.
Nestled in the rolling countryside of Stanly County, North Carolina, Lucky Clays is the realized vision of Judy Carpenter, a past Clays Shooting Champion. Powered by wind and solar energy, it is the largest private residential renewable energy system in the state of North Carolina with a goal to conserve and preserve the land’s abundant natural resources. The scenic grounds feature stocked ponds, mature hardwoods and a picturesque log cabin, complete with a spectacular view, tastefully appointed guest rooms and an outdoor kitchen and entertainment area ideal for a private business retreat or clays competition.
