Small teams will compete in a marksmanship tournament in an indoor VIP experience. This is a social networking event with no shooting experience required and is a great opportunity for your company to showcase your efforts to support STEM energy education in the Permian, Houston and Dallas areas.      

The competition supports PESA’s annual STEM education contributions to the IPAA/PESA Education Center, including targeted middle and high school programs in Midland, Odessa, Houston and Fort Worth.

This unique indoor competition also provides an opportunity to host an operator executive on your team. These sponsored teams are available on a first-come, first-selection basis. Executives selected will join your company’s team in the tournament.
