On May 15, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) hosted the annual Congressional Clays Competition in Glenn Dale, Maryland. This bipartisan event gathered nearly 30 Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus (CSC) members with partners such as ASA and other supporters for a friendly recreational shooting competition of skeet, trap and sporting clays between Republican and Democrat sportsmen and women.

From L to R: Brent Robertson, Chief of Staff, Rep. Roger Marshall; Gary Jennings, Keep Florida Fishing Director, ASA; Mike Leonard, Conservation Director, ASA; Representative Marc Veasey (D – TX); Chris Horton, Senior Director, Midwestern States/Fisheries Program, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation; David Slikkers, Director of Government Relations, S2 Yachts, Inc.

ASA’s Conservation Director, Mike Leonard, and Keep Florida Fishing Director, Gary Jennings, participated in the competition, which offers the opportunity to meet with some of the outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen that represent our interests in Congress.

This event has been put on for more than 20 years and serves as an emphasis that sportsmen’s interests are nonpartisan; an issue area that both Democrats and Republicans can work on together.

The bipartisan CSC has grown into one of the largest and most effective caucuses in Congress with nearly 300 members of the House and Senate representing almost all 50 states. The CSC, with direct support from CSF, continues to be effective in protecting and advancing the agenda and interests of America’s sportsmen and women in Congress and ASA is an active partner.
