Kansas Outdoor Classic

The Kansas Wildscape Foundation’s Outdoor Classic Fundraiser highlights popular outdoor activities in the heart of Kansas on the state’s largest reservoir. Milford Reservoir, Acorns Resort and Geary County, are home to this annual September event pitting 4-person teams against one another for the ultimate battle in golf, shotgun target shooting and fishing with points awarded for each activity.

Ultimately a winning team is crowned, and the traveling trophy is theirs to display until the following year’s event. The weekend features an auction with all proceeds going to outdoor projects that benefit Kansans.

Up to 15, 4-person teams compete in a friendly competition that tests golf skill levels at Rolling Meadows, fishing with guides from Grandpa Boone’s Cabins and Outfitters, and shotgun shooting 5-stand targets at Sportsman’s Acres. Winners are crowned at an awards dinner on Saturday evening.

The event is popular and a wonderful opportunity to get away for a relaxing and fun-filled weekend. Entry fees are $500 per individual and include Friday’s lunch and dinner, Saturday’s breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus lodging and all fees for golf, fishing and shooting.

So, grab three of your friends and sign up as a team for a fun-tastic weekend!!! Register early as participation is limited to the first 15 teams to sign-up!

For more information on the event, contact Wildscape’s Executive Director, Marc Murrell, at marcmurrell@wildscape.org.

Update on the 2022 Outdoor Classic

The Kansas Wildscape Foundation just wrapped up the 2022 Kansas Outdoor Classic Fundraiser and the event was a huge success! Twelve, 4-person teams assembled at Acorns Resort on scenic Milford Reservoir for a few days and a friendly competition of golf, shooting sports and fishing. An auction was held to raise money for Wildscape’s programs and projects, and everyone had a great time!

An eventual winner was crowned based on cumulative scores for all three events and Team Kansas Strong took the 2022 title. They received some wonderful prizes and the traveling trophy to display until next year’s event.

Wildscape would like to thank our generous donors and sponsors: Geary County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, TriStar, Hodgdon, Acorns Resort, Sportsman’s Acres, Rolling Meadows Golf Course and Grandpa Boone’s Outfitters.

Wildscape can add a handful of 4-person teams for next year’s fundraising event to be held September 15-17, 2023. If you’re interested in fielding a team, contact Executive Director Marc Murrell at: marcmurrell@wildscape.org.
