The 2014 Sporting Clays season will conclude on October 14, 2014. This season has been extremely successful for the club and provided entertainment for over 500 shooters since April 1.
Special thanks go out to the crew who sets up and runs the sporting clays course. This crew includes Jon Giraud, Dennis Knoll, and Pat Peck. Without their hard work we would not have had a record breaking season.
The club has constructed two new archery practice ranges. The first is a 40 yard range built on the upper club grounds (next to the playground equipment). This ranges has three targets and is marked in 10 yard increments. A second 80 yard range was constructed on the lower club grounds in the "pine plantation". This range also has three targets and is marked in 10 yard increments.
Both ranges support traditional, compound, and crossbow archery. The only restriction is we do not allow broadhead arrows on either range. Users must have a current membership or day pass.
Fall Hunter Safety Classes begin September 12th. Maurice Amundson is the point of contact for these classes.
The club has rebuilt the archery range located next to the playground on the upper club grounds. The range has three new targets and is marked in 10 yard increments from 10 to 40 yards.
Special thanks go to Jon Giraud for heading up this project and to Ron Zeigler and Dennis Knoll for their assistance in constructing the new range.
The club also plans on constructing a second archery range in the pine plantation this year. We anticipate being able to provide targets for cross bows and up to a 100 yard firing line.
The club now has a roof over both the 50- and 100-yard ranges. The 100-yard range roof was completed in the fall of 2013. The 50-yard roof was completed in July 2014.
A crew of 8 volunteers completed construction in about 5 days. The roof covers the entire range line for the pistol, 15, 25, and 50 yard ranges.
Special thanks go to Dale, Don, Pat, Jon, Gordy, Jeff, Ron, and Bill for their efforts in completing this worthwhile project.
