The Underground Construction Technology Association Gulf Coast Chapter held its annual Sporting Clays Event on June 8 at the Westside Sporting Grounds in Katy, Texas (Houston area). Proceeds are earmarked for the organization’s Scholarship Fund.
With 124 participants and multiple sponsors, the event was a huge success, netting more than $6,000 for student scholarships.
UCTA-Gulf Coast Clay Shoot Committee Chairman David Ellett, vice president of BRH Garver, said “It’s fantastic to see the level of participation in just our second year under this format. The Clay Shoot Committee and all of the volunteers deserve the credit for making this event such a successful scholarship fundraiser. We all had a great time and are already looking forward to next year’s event.”
The winning team was from Insituform/Aegion. Team members were Timothy Naylor, Jeff Cannon, Andy Ozment and Glen Crawford. Joey Fick with Sandale Utility Products won the individual shooter title.

“All proceeds go to UCTA’s primary goal; education. The scholarships we offer to children of our chapter’s members can make an enormous difference to a family and we are proud that we have the support of everyone that participated to make it possible. The event sponsors have to be given credit – their support makes this event possible,” Ellett added.
