iClays will continue to update and make improvements to the program that will customize the program for the USAYESS events.
Mike Borg USAYESS Executive Director said “iClays was used in the 2014 regional and national events and the ease of use, flexibility, and user friendly interface made running the events from beginning to end a snap.”
“iClays is committed to the growth of clay shooting sports. Youth organizations like the USAYESS that educate and promote safe participation in shooting sports are vital to the future of the sport. In recognition of this, iClays has developed an integration platform for the USAYESS, to bring them the latest in scoring and registration technology.” stated David Clifford CEO of iClays.
The next step is to offer iClays to the USAYESS State Affiliates to assist them in running their state events. Rosemarie Ackley of Spring Creek, NV, Ellie Sellin of Madisonville, TN and Lindy Moss of Wasilla, AK have been appointed to the USAYESS scoring committee to facilitate training and give state affiliates support for adapting iClays. The role of the scoring committee is to continue developing iClays, to promote iClays to state affiliates, help state affiliates implement the program, and take an active role in training new users.
