Pawling Mountain Open

Jeff and I spent the day acting as roving photographers at the Pawling Mountain Open, which is hosted at the Pawling Mountain (Shooting) Club. As we drove up to the clubhouse, I immediately knew this was a special place. Stepping inside, the elegance bespoke of the wealth of its members.

The PMC grounds are gorgeous.The sporting clays stations are tucked within acres of tree lined rolling hills and lakes.

The PMO is a charity shoot to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. We drove around the course in a golf cart, taking photos of the squads.

Participants included generals, colonels, retired military personnel from the US and UK, business men and PMC members. The Special Operations Warrior Fund has funded full tuition for 150+ college graduates and is currently paying tuition for 140+ college students. All awards are given to the children of deceased special ops soldiers.

 The Liberty Belles from the USO sang beautifully during the luncheon. I was glad that Jeff donated his time and talent to photograph to this worthy cause.
