CONROE, TEXAS – -(Ammoland.com)- Texas Armament & Technology (TxAT) and Aguila Ammunition are proud to announce CZ-USA as the first sponsor of the inaugural Aguila Cup. CZ-USA will sponsor the Sporting Clays Main Event, as well as the Judges'/Staff Uniforms.
In addition to the sponsorships, CZ-USA is being extremely generous and donating (10) CZ 612 Target 12ga Shotguns (MSRP of $549 each) to be used as prizes for 1st – 10th places of the Hunter Class in the Main Event of the competition. Hunter Class is the class used by the National Sporting Clays Association for new shooters who are not NSCA registered shooters.
“We are honored to have CZ-USA as not only a sponsor of our Aguila Cup, but as a partner in creating our first U.S.- based shooting sports tournament,” states Kristi Drawe, Director of Marketing for TxAT/Aguila Ammunition. “Not only does Aguila and CZ-USA share the sponsorship of World Record Holder, Dave Miller, but we both support the recruitment and growth of new and youth shooters to the shooting sports. Because of that, CZ-USA has helped develop an impressive prize pack, which will help encourage more novice shooters to participate in the Aguila Cup.”
“It's nice to see CZ-USA and Aguila (two of my largest sponsors) working closely on what will be a ground breaking inaugural Aguila Cup,” says Dave Miller, World Record Holder for shooting the most sporting clay targets broken in one hour (3,653 targets) and Shotgun Product Manager for CZ-USA. “I shoot in many events, and I know firsthand to make an event successful and unforgettable, it starts with great companies like these, that share in aligned principles and goals. I hope to see the Aguila Cup be the first tournament for many new shooters.”
