Annual Sporting Clays Tournament
May 19th-20th, 2017
Houston Oilman’s Invitational Shooting Tournament

H.O.I.S.T. gives away over $1 Million to charities!

HOIST2013The H.O.I.S.T. tournament is the premier oilfield shooting tournament, giving away many prizes and helping sexually abused children with over $1 million in donations.

It is hard to believe that this year will be the 20th annual H.O.I.S.T. tournament. Thanks to all of our sponsors, the H.O.I.S.T. tournament is Houston’s premier oilfield shooting tournament. In addition to all the fun, with your support over the years, H.O.I.S.T. has donated over $1,015,954 to the Children’s Assessment Center. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to our sponsors for your assistance in improving the lives of sexually abused children in our community. Additionally over the years, H.O.I.S.T. has donated over $393,000 to various charities including the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation for their 4-H youth program, Combat Marine Outdoors, Texas Sentinels Foundation and other organizations.

The tournament is scheduled for May 19th & 20th, 2017 at the Westside Sporting Grounds. We have two days of shooting and socializing planned. The course will be open on Friday, May 13th for practice and the main event will be held on Saturday, May 14th. The format is five 5-stands, two true pair per station, for a total of 100 birds. We realize the current market has had a negative impact on available budgets for industry events. With this in mind, we have worked to make numerous budget cuts so that we can lower costs in hopes that you will be able to keep your team. For this entry, you will receive a goodie bag, door prize chance, two days of food, beverages, 100-bird event, and a whole lot of fun.

As before, this is a team event and classed by a Lewis Class Scoring System. All participants must be directly engaged in the oil and gas industry (immediate family accepted). Trophies will be given to teams in each class as well as the HOA and the Lady’s HOA.

Registration deadline is April 8, 2016. To keep your position in the tournament, completed registration forms and entry fees must be in by the deadline. Those teams that fail to meet the deadline will be forfeited and the position will be available for those on our waiting list. Shooters will provide their own ammunition and eye and ear protection. No one under the age of 18 is allowed to shoot, drive golf carts or four-wheelers.

Thanks to all,
The HOIST Committee
