On Saturday evening the 30th of April, J.Pepe Fanjul with his wife Emilia hosted a wonderful dinner and prize-giving celebration at the Casa de Campo Yacht Club, to mark the end of the 35th annual Sugar Shooting Tournament at the Casa de Campo Shooting Center and private wilderness reserve, Rancho Peligro.
This annual tournament hosted by J.Pepe Fanjul, which traditionally follows its sister event the Sugar Golf Tournament hosted by his brother Alfy Fanjul, sees people from all around the world travel here to enjoy the Casa de Campo resort’s extensive and indeed world-class shooting facilities. With guests from Texas, the United Kingdom, and Florida, if there was one thing everyone had in common, it was their enthusiasm and appreciation for the Casa de Campo Shooting Center.
The celebration started with cocktails and snacks on the second floor with a beautiful view of the Marina before the intimate group moved down to the dining area for a delicious buffet dinner with the melodious tunes of a piano in the background. J.Pepe Fanjul along with Casa de Campo’s Director of Shooting, Jake Pike, took the spotlight to reveal the winners of the various tournaments — an exciting and cheerful moment.
