The 36th Annual Sugar Shooting Tournament ended on a high note with a grand dinner hosted by Emilia and J. Pepe Fanjul at Casa Grande on April 29th. The beautiful lights lit up the intimate space for the participants and guests as they arrived, adding to the festive atmosphere.
The Sugar Shooting Tournament, hosted by J. Pepe Fanjul, originated in 1988 to commemorate the opening of an improved shooting facility. The tournament includes competitions like game shooting every morning at Rancho Peligro, Sporting Clays, and Colombaire.
Thanks to the efforts of Jake Pike, Director of the Shooting Center, and his team, this year’s tournament was another successful shooting event. Every year, skilled participants from around the world come to compete with each other, and this year was no different.
The evening began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, allowing guests to mingle and share stories from Casa de Campo’s private wilderness reserve, Rancho Peligro, and the 245-acre Shooting Center. After the cocktail hour, guests were escorted to an intimate dinner, followed by an awards ceremony where J. Pepe Fanjul and Jake Pike announced the winners of the various tournaments.
Mason Berry was declared the winner of the 1st Place All-Around Championship High Overall, and the Gubelmann Cup by Jimmy Gubelmann for High Overall Shooting Center Championship was awarded to Andrés Fanjul. The event was filled with excitement and cheer, marking a perfect end to the five-day competition.
Congratulations to all the winners and participants! It’s clear that this year’s group thoroughly enjoyed the event celebrations. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
