The Maverick is our largest fundraiser of the year. The Maverick is an exhilarating sporting clay competition meant for all levels of shooters. The event occurs in the Spring and begins on a Friday morning at the breathtaking Sylvandale Ranch outside of Loveland, Colorado. 60 teams of four participate in a unique sporting clay event, which includes safety training, event apparel, breakfast, lunch and a custom course. Throughout the day, participants can participate in other games such as the Green Gambler. After the shoot concludes, guests are welcome to sign up for the annual horseshoe tournament held at Swift Ponds. Last year, we had more than X teams who enjoyed networking and a wonderful cookout. It all starts over on Saturday! 60 new teams join the course for a day of fun. Following the Saturday shoot, teams are invited to close out the big weekend with an exciting banquet at the Loveland Embassy Suites which is filled with fun, including a raffle, live and silent auction. Participants will also get to meet the families and youth their donations supports.
The Maverick has been in existence since 2001. It has raised more than X dollars which goes directly to supporting the relationship building programming that CYO is known to provide to families in the Northern Colorado communities. Don’t be fooled by the name “Colorado Youth Outdoors”, as participants have come all the way from Mexico to New York to California to support this great event. Lifelong relationships and friendships have resulted in the team-building experienced at the Maverick!
