The 2015 OCAPL Sporting Clay Shoot, benefitting the Oklahoma Youth Hunting Program, started off with a bang last Friday. Participants came from all over the great state of Oklahoma and beyond to take out their commodity price anxiety on some unsuspecting clay pigeons. iLandMan was there front and center serving donuts to the hungry and coffee to the caffeine addicted from 7AM until the last shot was fired. The caffeine boost seemed greatly appreciated, especially for the early bird group, while the donuts provided a nice little sugar rush and were even consumed as dessert in the afternoon.
Despite the market down turn, the event turnout was strong and sprits were high (at least prior to stepping out on the course). An air of cautious optimism could be felt throughout the crowd of oil and gas professionals, most of whom when asked, were staying busy and happy to ‘still have the lights on.’
As anyone from Oklahoma knows, it’s tough to beat low-80s for daytime highs in August, making the weather for the clay shoot the best folks had seen in years. Here’s to that trend continuing through this weekend’s football kickoffs. By day’s end the OCAPL crew decimated a full 12 dozen donuts, 10 gallons of coffee, 20,000+ clay pigeons, and a few egos (some shattered, mostly bruised). In our book, regardless of your scorecard, that sounds like a pretty good day at the “office.”
As September begins, so to does the new calendar year of local land association events. Please be on the lookout for your iLandMan mid-continent team at many of these events, starting with the OCAPL meeting on September 14th, and if you want to know how it feels to score a dead pair on the land software range, schedule your iLandMan Demonstration today!
