Jackie Stenton is a strong supporter of Scouting and the co-creator of the Diana Division of the Las Vegas Sporting Clay Adventure.
The Sporting Clay event is held annually as a benefit for the Boy Scouts of America in Las Vegas.
Proceeds from the event provide for more than 1,800 new boys and girls to participate in Scouting's fun and adventures while instilling the timeless values of Scouting.
The Diana Division allows women to participate in and compete against the men in the Sporting Clay event and also against each other.
This lady is the assistant to Carlo Fiocchi at Fiocchi of America. The Fiocchi family has a long tradition of making exceptional ammunitions in the United States. The family business operates and originated in Italy.
Jackie worked with Carlo to custom design special ammunition for the women competing in the event. Additionally, Jackie provides oversight for other Fiocchi's youth programs including the annual Scholastic Clay Target Program.
She is a great supporter of the Scouts and believes in investing in the community. She works diligently on the annual events to ensure both the women and men have a great time.
Jackie is proud of her work with Fiocchi and the Scouts. She is extraordinarily talented and passionate about her work. Her support and willingness to be inclusive of women and support the efforts of Scouting is very much appreciated.
She gives full credit to Carlo Fiocchi and all of the Fiocchi team for her ability to participate in these great activities. She would tell you that Fiocchi makes the difference.

One month ago circa, we headed out for a different week-end, it was so much fun we chose to put a brief article here for you to learn what GNAT warfare is all about!
The combat rules are simple, you start with a 5 man team.
The planes will make 5 passes in front of the shooting line.
Each shooter will get two shots per pass.
Your team will be scored on how many of the exploding charges have been detonated on the bottom of the plane.
The planes will be between 50 – 80 feet in front of the shooting line and between 30 – 50 feet in elevation.
The targets will make passes from both directions right to left, left to right.
There will be high passes and low passes.
There is a pattern to the flights but that is up to the skill of the teams to figure out.
That’s what makes Shooting the Gnat so challenging.
Each team will have the same opportunity as the next.
Once our skilled pilots put the target into the killing zone all odds are the same as the next.
Remember when shooting birds there is no pre-determined flight path just the same point of origin.
So choose your shooting partners wisely because remember WAR IS HELL! , good luck !
