Land Rover Las Vegas continues its support of the Las Vegas Area Council of Boy Scouts of America as a lead sponsor for the fifth annual Sporting Clays Classic. The event, scheduled for April at Land Rover Las Vegas and the Desert Lakes Shooting Club, just west of Boulder City, benefits the more than 34,000 youth in local Scouting.
The two-day event begins April 20 with a banquet and auctions at Land Rover Las Vegas and continues the next day with the shooting competition. It brings together four-person teams from companies across the Las Vegas Valley. The event has raised more than $500,000 for local Scouting since its inception in 2008.
The competition challenges teams to earn the highest shooting score in three classes, a format that gives beginners and experts an equal chance at winning. Sporting clay targets are thrown in a variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations and distances from 20 stations located on the mountainous course.
One lucky competitor will win a one-year lease of a 2012 Range Rover Sport in a drawing after the event. Participants also will get the opportunity to experience Land Rover’s legendary capability on a challenging off-road course.

It remains a family-run business to this day, with Pete’s son Cliff Findlay, the current and longtime CEO, and Cliff Findlay’s sons Justin, Robby and Nathan entrenched in the business.
