Grab a shotgun and blow inanimate birds to pieces, all in the name of raising dollars for outstanding students and charities in Lake Highlands. Could anyone possibly resist this?

The Lake Highlands Exchange Club’s 2nd annual sporting clay shoot is all-set for 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25 at Elm Fork Shotgun Sports (10751 Luna).

Dove season is almost here, says organizer Brian Huddleston, and this is the perfect opportunity to warm up and practice. “Even if you’re not a hunter but you want to shoot off some guns and hang out with friends, this is it.”

Get your four-man (or woman) skeet-shooting team together and register — the four member registration fee of $500 includes ammo and dinner and more. You can also register individually for $125.

Here’s the best thing about this (beside the blowing-clay-pigeons-away thing, that is): all of the Exchange Club’s fundraisers bring in money for scholarships for Lake Highlands students. That means even more when you meet some of the students who benefit from these scholarships.
