Barry Kelly, general manager of Delta Resort and Spa in Tillar, Ark., has recently been named Arkansas State Advisor for the Scholastic Clay Target Program, as well as becoming an SCTP Head Coach. Through his work with the national SCTP organization, Kelly will be helping give the state’s youth teams more options in advancing their target shooting opportunities.
Delta Resort and Spa, in southeastern Arkansas, is a destination for shooters, hunters, and other outdoors enthusiasts who want to enjoy their sports in a luxury setting. The resort has over 140 sporting clays stations and three bunker traps, and it is currently adding several trap and skeet fields. When not running clay target competitions, the facility focuses on waterfowl hunting in an area known to have some of the best in the world.
In addition, Delta Resort has been chosen to host the Fall Selection Match for USA Shooting in November.
On behalf of Delta Resort, Kelly has donated two four-person waterfowl hunts to be auctioned off at SCTP banquets in Wisconsin and Kansas to benefit SCTP’s Scholarship Fund.
“We appreciate Barry’s dedication and commitment to our program in getting Arkansas involved with the SCTP, and we especially appreciate his donations that will make it possible for us to award scholarships to deserving student athletes,” remarked Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Program Director. “We have great people doing a great job for our program.”
