The main event—a 100-target, Orvis Modified Lewis Class shoot—commences on Sunday morning at 9:30am. Shooting and competition fees vary (see sign-up sheet for more information). Spectators are welcome to attend for FREE!
The Orvis Cup is part of an exciting weekend of activities at Sandanona, called the Orvis Family Game Fair Weekend. This exciting weekend features artists and craftsmen at work, and more than 50 of the finest upscale exhibitors and vendors. There will be free fly-casting lessons, youth programs for all ages, and a “First Shots” area sponsored by the NSSF. Plus, you can enter to win one of three Caesar Guerini shotguns, Orvis gear, dog beds, and more! Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to spend the day in the beautiful countryside at Sandanona.
Orvis Sandanona is a step back in time, to a place where the traditions of the field and the hunt are held in the highest regard, and where wingshooting is a passion that links the past with the present. This venerable sporting institution is the oldest permitted shooting preserve in the country, so old in fact, that the main lodge was built during the presidency of Thomas Jefferson. Come join us for a weekend of fun and the 5th Annual Orvis Cup! For more information, call Peggy Long at (845) 677-9701.
