What's happening @ your club?

Trap League

Here we are into our 5th week and we have 0nly 19 shooters signed up for the spring league, with the prospect to have 7 more very soon. Due to the terrible spring weather, we have dropped the requirement to have 4 scores shot by the end of the 4th week. What we expect shooters to do is make an effort to get their scores in as soon as possible.  This league will continue to run Thursdays; 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm & Sundays 9:00 am - 12:00 noon. And, as always, open or practice shooting is integrated with league shooters --- ALL ARE WELCOME!!!!  This league will conclude with a trap party on June 1st. After that date, a doubles league will start running for 6 weeks consisting of 300 targets shooting on Thursday at 6 - 8pm. Open shooting will be available at this time also. Please look forward to a Fall Trap League to start in mid August.  As always, I would like to thank the trap help for their outstanding efforts & also all of our supporters.

Thank you again; Trap Chairman -- Ernie


The winter sessino ended April 10th. This season team competition was added and seemed to be a fun addition. Stay tuned for future information for the fall.

Suburban Pistol

We finished Suburban Pistol and are awaiting final results which should be out May 3rd.

Open Shooting

Tuesday nights; doors open @ 7pm. Due to our increased utility and insurance costs we have raised our non-member range fee to $7 per night. Members’ range fee remains at $3. All are welcome but we encourage frequent non-members to become members and support the club. Please be aware that non-members must fill out a one-time waiver. Forms are on hand at the range.
