Dawson Enterprises, clay target sports retailer and Cardinal Shooting Center vendor, has signed on to support youth shooting sports at the Scholastic Clay Target Program’s Bronze level. The retailer has proudly served clay target competitors for over 44 years and specializes in high-end competition shotguns and equipment. Dawson Enterprises was founded by avid trap shooters whose involvement in the Ohio trap shooting community continues to this day as a multi-generation family business. Present during the SCTP’s record-breaking 2022 National Championships at the Cardinal Shooting Center, Dawson Enterprises has doubled-down in support of SCTP athletes year-round.
“We are very excited to be a sponsor for the SCTP. It is imperative that we do all we can to educate and support today’s youth about the shooting sports. We have enjoyed watching the growth of their National competition over the years and are glad we have had the opportunity to interact with the youth competitors, families, and coaches at Cardinal Center.” -Kim McCarthy, CEO
“We are always happy to see new and returning sponsors each season,” commented Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Director. “When a venue vendor such as Dawson Enterprises reaches out to directly support our youth program, we are further energized in our mission of youth development through shooting sports. The SCTP is thrilled to have Dawson Enterprises on board as a new Bronze Sponsor!”
