Birds & Birdies Event To Be Held May 15-16

Birds and Birdies, a fundraising tournament event benefiting the North Dakota Petroleum Foundation will be held Monday, May 15 and Tuesday, May 16 at the McKenzie County Sportsman's Club and Fox Hills Golf Course, Watford City.

The Birds and Birdies tournament is a shooting and golf event.

For the first three events, teams will be scored in a 25-round trap shoot, 10-shot archery competition, and 20-round .22 rimfire rifle competition.

For the second event, teams will compete in a 16-hole max bogey golf scramble. The number of holes has increased from 13 to 16 and there will be the usual course games for the longest putt, the ball closest to the pin, and the longest drive for both men's and women's teams.

On May 15, the central meet-up location will be at Teddy's Lounge, 113 9th Ave. SE, Watford City at 6:30 p.m. Check-in on May 16 will be at 7:45 a.m. at the Sportsman's Club, 2306 121X Ave. NW followed by a breakfast and the shooting events. Lunch will be at noon at Fox Hills Golf Course, 3104 4th Ave. NE, followed by the golf scramble. The awards ceremony will round out the day at 5 p.m.

This event is to raise funds to help the North Dakota Petroleum Foundation in its mission to provide and support education and outreach opportunities related to the petroleum industry, develop and advance quality-of-life initiatives, and promote and enhance the conservation heritage of North Dakota. They will be using some of the funds raised this year to donate $10,000 to the Mule Deer Foundation so they can acquire a skid-steer attachment that can be used to roll up old fencing that was replaced with wildlife-friendly fencing. The North Dakota Petroleum Foundation partners with the Mule Deer Foundation at least once each year work on a project that enhances Mule Deer habitat.
