NVTC Sporting Clays Tournament Benefits NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative

On Monday, July 27, NVTC hosted the Second Annual Veterans Initiative Sporting Clays Tournament at Bull Run Shooting Center in Centreville, Va. Participants enjoyed warm, sunny weather as they competed on the 14-station course.

Now in its second year, this event supported the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative, through the NVTC Foundation. The Veterans Employment Initiative connects veterans to employment opportunities within Virginia's technology community and provides support to member companies in their efforts to hire, train and retain qualified veteran employees.

The NVTC Sporting Clays event was open to all levels and benefitted the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative.

The event was open to all skill levels. Safety and familiarization clinics were offered by staff from the Bull Run Shooting Center prior to the tournament and each team was assigned a guide who rotated through the course with them.

Following the tournament, participants enjoyed a lunch reception and awards presentation, during which NVTC Chair Emeritus David Lucien, who co-chairs the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative, provided updates on its programs and efforts to help NVTC member companies recruit and retain veteran employees.
