Bluegrass Blast

Bluegrass Blast

The Bluegrass Blast is the Blue Grass Council's annual fundraising auction and Sporting Clays event. The event is uaully held over a weekend in May, with the auction being held on Friday night and the Sporting Clays taking place all day Saturday. The 2017 Bluegrass Blast was held on May 12-13 at the Copper Roux facility (for the auction) and the Bluegrass Sportsmen's League (for Sporting Clays).

The auction typically consists of live music, heave hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and plenty of silent and live auction items. Items usually include trips, sports memorabilia, sports tickets, couple’s nights, gift cards, and more. Sporting Clays is a team event with 4 shooters to a team. Each individual shoots a total of 72 targets over a twelve-station course, and the Lewis Class System is used to handicap all shooters. Additionally, there are shooting challenges available to all participants, including two five-stands and a unique gravity rabbit mulligan opportunity to improve your score during the shoot. Each shooter may purchase and shoot as many mulligans as he or she wishes, and add up to 2 broken mulligans to his or her team score. Lunch is typically served from 11:30 am – 12:45 pm.
