Skeet shoot funds scholarships

  • Posted: Thursday, March 14, 2013 12:01 a.m.

A beautiful day brought a fun and exciting time at the first Justin Monroe and Victor Isler Benefit Skeet Shoot Competition held this past Saturday at Rowan County Wildlife Association on Majolica Road. 

The event was a huge success, bringing 138 shooters and many more participants from across the state.  Teams joined together to celebrate two wonderful men who sacrificed their lives for the Salisbury community. 


Raffle tickets were sold and two silent auctions helped bring additional proceeds to benefit the two scholarships set up for Justin Monroe and Rowan County Fallen Firefighters.  

Mike Holshouser had the first place team, with Team Cerberus following closely behind. Third place went to Charlotte Fire Department Skeet Shoot Team, with a very close fourth place by Jeff Eagle’s team.  Teams received trophies and medallions along with great prizes provided by the Trophy House of Salisbury, Poppie’s Gun Shop, and the NRA. 

Cerberus gun shop helped provide an AR-15 for the main raffle. Brad Vuncannnon with Pig Pen Enterprises catered the event with excellent barbecue.  Locke Fire Department and Miller’s Ferry Fire Department helped make the event memorable by bringing personnel and trucks.  Many local businesses helped make the event a success with great donations.  Alligood Automotive and Jason Floyd’s Lawn Care helped sponsor and make the event possible with planning, donations and selling raffle tickets. 

Justin Monroe’s mom, Lisa Monroe, was overwhelmed with the turnout and excited to have a celebration of happiness.  She is looking forward to the second skeet shoot competition already being planned for next year.  If you are interested in being added to an interest list for next year’s competition, email skeetshootcompetition@yahoo.com for more information.
