On Friday, August 8 and Saturday, August 9, the 2014 Russell Biven Summer Clayfest Tournament will take place at Chilhowee Sportsman’s Club in Maryville, TN.


WBIR’s Russell Biven will host and participate in the event. All proceeds from the tournament benefit mental health, addiction and social services provided by the Helen Ross McNabb Center.


“Like every year, we are going to have a good time at this year’s tournament. You can’t go wrong by having a little fun and supporting an organization like the Helen Ross McNabb Center,” Russell Biven shares. “We still have open spots for each flight. I’d like to invite the community to come out to support the Center and show us what you got!”


The 2014 Russell Biven Summer Clayfest Tournament will mark the 21st tournament benefiting the Helen Ross McNabb Center. More than 200 participants shot in the 2013 tournament. Russell Biven will spend each day of the tournament speaking with tournament participants and partaking in the day’s activities.


The tournament will include two flights on Friday and one morning flight on Saturday. Flight times are 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The cost for a five-person team is $650 and includes lunch provided by Dead End BBQ, a goody bag, event shirt and use of a golf cart. In addition to awards for top scores, there will be a five-stand contest, raffle prizes and other games.


Cherokee Distributing is presenting the tournament in memory of Herb Ogle again this year, a longtime friend and supporter of the Helen Ross McNabb Center. Herb was active in the Russell Biven Clayfest Tournament and also served as a former committee member for many years.
