    Easton, MD:               On Sunday, June 5, 2022, the Talbot Rod & Gun Club and Spring & Associates hosted a Clay Shoot to benefit the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit. The event and festivities were held at the Talbot Rod & Gun Club on Chapel Road, Easton, MD to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Festivities included games for all attending family members, a K-9 demonstration by our own Cpl. Jeff Smith with his partner Chief, and lunch was provided by Frases Grills on Wheels.
     
    The event was organized by President Joe Capozzoli and Event Chair Paul Bergere of the Talbot Rod & Gun Club with members of the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office. In all, nine teams consisting of thirty-six shooters participated in the event, including several members of the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office. Members of the top team included, Gavyn Corley, Jackson Stepp, Chase Handy and Jacob Burns (pictured below). Individual honors were won by Chase Handy as the top shooter with Art Turner coming in as the runner up.
     
    Sheriff Joe Gamble said “I can’t thank our sponsors enough, what a great day for this event. It is humbling and heartwarming to watch members of the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office with their families, interact with members of our fantastic community in such a worthwhile cause. I hope to have more events in the future to continue this partnership.”
     
    Many generous donors made this event a spectacular success, with David Wheeler and Ed Henry, among others making appreciated donations. The event raised just over $4,000.00, which will be used to purchase much needed equipment to benefit our K-9 Unit.
