5-Stand Season Off to a Good Start

Sparta Rod & Gun

The 2014-2015 5 Stand Shooting on Tuesday evenings is off to an excellent start. Come join us every Tuesday evening for a fun shoot from a heated and covered shooting stand. 5 Stand is a cross between Trap and Sporting Clays. Shooters engage a series of 25 targets presented as incoming, outgoing, and crossing birds. Each shooter engages 5 targets at each of the 5 stands. 

Cost is $5.00 per shooter ($3.00 for youth under 14 years old). Shooting starts at 3 pm and continues until all shooters have completed as many rounds as they want.

February 5-Stand Shoot Another Success

Sparta Rod & Gun

The club held its third Saturday 5 Stand Fun Shoot on February 1, 2014 and it was another solid success.  75 shooters participated in the event and all had an enjoyable time despite the temperatures.  The heated shooting stand did help considerably though.  We were able to break the record number participants, set in January, and look forward to the final Saturday 5-Stand shoot scheduled for March 1st.  Hopefully we will have some warmer temperatures for that event. 

Special thanks go to the volunteers who made this event another outstanding success, particularly the people who worked the kitchen and bar, registered shooters, and guaranteed a smooth flow for all participants.

January 5-Stand Fun Shoot a Success

Sparta Rod & Gun

The club held a second 5-Stand Fun Shoot on January 4, 2014 and it was a resounding success.  Over 70 shooters participated in the event despite the cold weather.  All shooters seemed to have had a great time.  The total number of shooters far surpassed previous Saturday 5 Stand shoots. 

Special thanks go to the volunteers who made this event a success, particularly the people who worked the kitchen and bar, registered shooters, and ensure a smooth flow for all participants.

December 5-Stand Shoot

Sparta Rod & Gun

The club conducted its first Saturday Fun Shoot of the 2013-2014 winter season.  Forty shooters participated and enjoyed the event despite the low temperatures. 

Special thanks go to the volunteers who worked in the kitchen, registered the shooters, and ensured a smoothly run event for all participants.

5-Stand Shooting Opens

Sparta Rod & Gun

The club will conduct 5-Stand Shotgun Shooting on Tuesday nights beginning Dec 4.  Open shooting will begin at 5 pm. 

5-Stand shooting involves the shooter engaging a series of five targets from each stand.  Targets are presented in a variety of attitudes and consist of a single clay and two pairs of clays per stand.  Shooters engage a variety of targets at each stand. 

Cost is $5 per round (25 birds).  Come and join us on Tuesday evenings this winter and shoot under the lights.  

New Roof Over the 100-Yard Range

Sparta Rod & Gun

The club has constructed a roof over the 100 yard range firing line to provide shade and protection against inclement weather for shooters. 

This new roof covers the entire firing line and will increase the comfort of all users.  The roof is a major improvement. 

Special thanks go to Dale Simonson, Jon Giraud, Jeff Jerde, Pat Peck, Gordy Weber, and Bill Teoli for their efforts in constructing the roof.  Special thanks also go out to Rich, who donated the metal roofing for the job. 

Constuction took about 150 man hours to complete over the period of a week and was completed well under budget.  Our plan is to construct another shooting shelter over the pistol/50 yard range in 2014.  Again, thanks to all who assisted in this major undertaking.
