"Anything you can do to raise money for a charity is a good thing."
That's what Mudgee Sporting Clays' (MSC) publicity officer, Melissa King has to say about the club's upcoming Pink Up event.
In its first year, MSC will be holding a two day event to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.
All charities are very worthy but the McGrath Foundation is something that is very near and dear to a lot of our members.Mudgee Sporting Clays publicity officer, Melissa King
"It was initially in October to align with Pink Up Mudgee but there's just too many activities on in that month and we wanted to be able to maximise the participants at our charity weekend and therefore, raise more money."
The event, which welcomes the likes of anyone of the age of 12 and above, will have two champion shooters on hand to guide anyone who will be trying the sport out for the first time.
"It was originally just going to be on the Sunday as a competition shoot but we thought so many people want to have a go but they're nervous and not sure what to do so the Saturday will be a 'have a go' type of day," Melissa said.
"We will have an Olympic gold medalist, Suzy Balogh there providing a hand, and also World Cup medalist Gemma Dunn so we're bringing in the big guns for the weekend."
The family oriented event encourages people of all ages, abilities, gender and experience to come along.
"We've decided not to just restrict the event for women, men suffer from breast cancer as well so everyone is included," King said.
"It makes for a really good family sport which there really isn't much of.
It's a fun sport where everyone competes equally, it doesn't matter your age, if you have a disability, it's not restricted to anyone in particular which is the beauty of it.
The event will be held across November 9-10 at the Windermere Shooting Complex, with Saturday's shoot a 'Come 'n' Try 50TGT Practice' from 12pm, and Sunday a Pink Up Day 78TGT Competition from 9am.
"Don't be afraid to come along, my 75-year-old mother had a go and she loved it," Melissa said.
