A sporting clay tournament will be held 24-25 September to benefit families of the Macondo blowout victims. The event, organized by the nonprofit group Oilfield Helping Hands, will take place at the Bentley Ranch, aka Baroid on the Brazos, just west of Houston.
Proceeds will go to assist the immediate needs of the families affected and to set up an educational trust fund in the names of the children who lost their fathers on 20 April.
Practice rounds will begin on 24 September, and the tournament will be held on 25 September. Food will be offered at the event, and there will also be special raffles and a silent auction.
