“This will give our team a nice income base for the foreseeable future, and let us shoot more and travel more,” said Bill Thomas, Schreiner Shooting Sports coach. “We are overwhelmed by this generosity.”

Endowments are generated through the support of Midway USA Foundation and local fundraisers hosted by Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Each year, RMEF staff and volunteers nominated high school and university shooting teams as candidates for gifts, and this year Schreiner was the recipient of the grant money.

President and CEO of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, David Allen, said “Conservation depends on strong participation in hunting and shooting sports, which together generate most of the revenue for wildlife habitat, management, law enforcement and research in America.

We’re proud to support this heritage through endowments to encourage and support students with budding interests in outdoor sports and lifestyles.”

The Schreiner Shooting Sports Teams, which have been active since 2006, has nine members on its competition team and 30 members on its recreation team.
