CONROE, Texas -(Ammoland.com)- Texas Armament & Technology (TxAT) and Aguila Ammunition are excited to announce the inaugural Aguila Cup.
The multidiscipline shooting sports tournament will take place at Fossil Pointe Sporting Grounds in Decatur, TX, which is conveniently located outside the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. This marks the first year TxAT/Aguila Ammunition have hosted a tournament on U.S. soil.
For the past three years, TxAT/Aguila Ammunition have hosted the Copa Aguila in Mexico and the tournament has proven to be the largest sport-shooting event in all of Latin America. The three-day event consists of Sporting Clays, Five-Stand, 3-Gun and a recently added Rimfire category.
While the Copa Aguila will continue in Guadalajara, Mexico, the Aguila Cup will be a separate event.
“After much success of the Copa Aguila in Guadalajara and Acapulco, we’re bringing the same event to the U.S. TxAT is a Texas-based company and we’re excited to host an event in our own backyard,” says Kristi Drawe, Director of Marketing for TxAT/Aguila Ammunition. “We welcome all shooters, as the Aguila Cup will feature a category for every shooting discipline and we look forward to having our friends and industry partners join us in our home state of Texas.”
The 2018 Aguila Cup will be held on June 14th – 17th. Shooting categories will include Sporting Clays, Five Stand, FITASC, 3-Gun, and Rimfire. Aguila is partnering with 3-Gun Nation and Rimfire Challenge to design the stages for the individual 3-gun and rimfire events.
In addition, Wade Bowen will perform a private concert on Saturday evening, June 16th for registered shooters. Shooters will be eligible to purchase tickets for their families to the concert. A Texas-themed dinner will also be included.
Embassy Suites in Denton, TX will serve as the headquartered hotel for the event. Teams and individuals can register online at www.shootaguilacup.com.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available and can be viewed on the event website or contact Janice Bartels for more information at [email protected]
