(MARYVILLE, Tenn.) On Friday, Aug. 3 and Saturday, Aug. 4, the 2018 Russell Biven Summer Clayfest Tournament will take place at Chilhowee Sportsman’s Club in Maryville.
WBIR’s Russell Biven hosts the annual sporting clays tournament, which benefits mental health, addiction and social services in East Tennessee provided by the Helen Ross McNabb Center. Russell partakes in the activities and spends time each day visiting with the tournament’s participants.
All three flights are currently sold out; however, Russell is encouraging people to sign up to volunteer. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt and lunch provided by Dead End BBQ.
“We rely on volunteers to make these events a success,” Russell said. “Participating as a volunteer is a great way to support the work of the Helen Ross McNabb Center.”
The tournament includes two flights on Friday and one morning flight on Saturday. The flight times are 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The event hosts four-person teams and includes lunch provided by Dead End BBQ, a goody bag, an event shirt and use of a golf cart. Winners are determined by the Lewis Handicapping System and prizes are awarded to first, second and third place teams, along with individual awards.
Cherokee Distributing is presenting the tournament in memory of Herb Ogle, a longtime friend and supporter of the Helen Ross McNabb Center. Herb was active in the Russell Biven Clayfest Tournament and also served as an event committee member for many years.
