SAN ANGELO – Sport shooters from across the Concho Valley gathered at the San Angelo Clay Bird Association Saturday morning for the 5th annual Back the Badge Clay Bird Benefit Shoot benefitting the San Angelo Police Department and the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office.
San Angelo Back the Badge was founded in 2019. A Board of Directors was formed from community members and agency employees. The Board elected to sponsor an annual sporting clay shoot as a fundraiser benefiting these Departments, as well as all law enforcement efforts within Tom Green County. The annual spring sporting clay shoot has benefited each department with the necessary funds to upgrade facilities and equipment.
