MARYVILLE, TN., (WLAF)- “It was the biggest yet.” That is how Eight Judicial District Attorney General Jared Effler described the annual clay shoot hosted by his office.

The shoot is an “outside the box” fundraiser with proceeds from the event going to help the children’s centers in the eighth judicial district. With the event finishing its fourth year, Effler said he is “just blown away” at how the shoot has grown every year. The combination of an outdoor event and a worthy cause are the driving factors behind the event’s success, he said. “It’s a win/ win event,” Effler said.


Campbell County was well represented at the shoot by Ron Dilbeck. The avid sportsman shot 98 out of 100.

Each county in the judicial district, Campbell, Scott, Claiborne, Fentress and Union, had teams participating in the shoot held on Friday at Chilhowee Sportsman’s Club.
And while there were over 80 teams at the charity shoot, it was two Campbell Countains that walked away with top honors. Billy Ball shot 99 out of 100 with Ron Dilbeck right behind him with 98 of 100.

Students with the Union County High School FFA program cooked lunch for the over 80 teams at the shoot.
