Black Guns and The Blue Line
A Benefit for Corey Weatherly
About Corey Weatherly:
Corey has served as a Blaine County Sheriff’s Deputy since 2001. Before that, he was in the military from 1995-1999. He is a Hero on all accounts. On July 15th, while doing private security for an event, a man fell from the roof of a building in Ketchum onto Corey breaking his neck in two places and causing severe nerve and tissue damage. Corey had surgery to try to repair the damage and is scheduled for another within the next few weeks.
Corey is fighting his way back into his uniform and back on duty. He is determined to continue his life of service to his country and community. Right now he just needs some help with his mounting medical bills and living expenses.
Who: The event is open to anyone who wants to participate. We have several things to participate in (see below)
When: October 20th, 3-3:30 registration
Where: Blaine County Gun Club 105 East Ohio Gulch Road Hailey, ID 83333
Texas Hold’em Shootout: $75 for team of 2 shooters
The card game will go like this: each team of two will be dealt three cards, each shooter shoots one card completing your hand (5 cards). You will have three hands to make the best game you can, but you cannot use the same card for more than one hand. We then will compare your hand with 3 other teams and the best team moves on. Pistols only on this event. This game combines precision, skill, luck, and strategy.
Dinner: $25 per person
The dinner is open to anyone, shooters and non-shooters alike. It will be at the gun range so we’d prefer no little ones for safety reasons. Participants in the Texas Hold’em shooting event can purchase the event and two dinner tickets for $100 total. Dinner will start around 5-5:30 and continue into the evening until all shooters are finished.
Many amazing products have been donated by several companies. A thank you to them is below. We are getting new items every day. You do not need to participate in the shooting event or purchase dinner to come, browse, and bid on the silent auction items. Please remember that this is a fundraiser and benefit for an injured Deputy so the more you participate in the more we can help out Corey and his family. You do not have to be present to win the auction item. We can deliver them later to you. Top bidders will be announced when we award prizes for the contest winners.
Top Shot Contest
This is a pay-per-shot competition with multiple targets at various distances. You will need to bring your own gun (no pistols please) and ammunition. You can shoot as many times as you like.
