On October 5th, 2019 a Kansas City Scouting tradition was held at Powder Creek Gun Club. The Annual Sporting Clays Classic provided an exciting celebration of fun and fellowship for close to 200 participants.  The weekend featured a  sporting clays tournament and auction. All proceeds benefited the Heart of America Council’s mission of leadership & character development programs for more than 28,000 youth in the Kansas City area. I

We would like to thank the following individuals that volunteered their services to the committee, secured auction items, or volunteered to make this event a success.
