Foley Supports Hunter Tourism at Governor's Ringneck Classic

The “First Annual Governor’s Ringneck Classic” was held November 18 – 20th in Oakley, KS.  The goal of the inaugural event is to raise awareness and support of hunter tourism in western Kansas.

Foley helped sponsor the event which was attended by Gov. Brownback, sport legends Tom Watson, George Brett and prominent business owners, educational leaders, artists and wildlife enthusiasts from around the state.  Attending from Foley were Shane Ham, Bob Johnson, Dustin Daniels and Roger Boyd.

An auction was held to raise money for the event which included the “Inaugural Governor’s Ringneck Classic” shotgun, a brand new Browning 12-guage shotgun that was used for two hours by Governor Sam Brownback.  Governor Brownback claims he dropped two birds with it.

Foley Equipment Company purchased the gun and the funds raised from the sale of the shotgun are donated back to the organization where it will be auctioned off every year for usage during the event.  Oakley hosted the inaugural event which will be rotated around to other western Kansas communities each year.


Governor Brownback presents his Browning 12-gauge to Shane Ham along with Roger Boyd, Bob Johnson and Dustin Daniels.  Foley Equipment was the winning bidder for the gun.  The proceeds of the auction support hunter tourism in western Kansas.
