Wheeling, WV Local 818 Secretary-Treasurer Jack Williams, Jr. and member Jim Ferda took home the top team prize of “High Overall Average” at the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Area Sporting Clays Shoot.

Williams and Ferda teamed up with an IBEW member on a day that brought together union members and their families for fun-filled, outdoor recreation. The event is held each year to raise money to support USA’s nationwide conservation program, Boots on the Ground.

“I’m proud of Jack and Jim,” said District 54 President and DBR T. Dean Wright, Jr. “They took advantage of the invite, made the drive to Pittsburgh, and came home with trophies. It couldn’t have happened to two nicer guys.”

USA is a conservation-based, non-profit organization exclusively for union members, retirees and their families. It works to expand and improve hunting and fishing access and wildlife habitat throughout North America.
