Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Lots of kids attended this year!  We had around 1000 eggs and placed them over about 3-4 acres of our property.  This year's drawing winner was Zaybriel King-Bauer.  The 5 & under year old Grand Prize winner was Kara Pierce.  The 6-7-8 year old Grand Prize winner was Serenity Rios.  The 9-10-11 year old Grand Prize winner was Summer Franklin.  The cup cakes, lemonade and raspberry ice tea afterwards was great!  Thanks to all that helped with getting the eggs ready, hiding the eggs, making the cup cakes and drinks, managing the prize stations and with the cleaning up afterwards.  May hours of preparation and its all over with in about 10 minutes!  We really enjoy sponsoring our annual Easter Egg Hunt and hope all the kids had a great time!!!

Range Information

Check the club calendar (click here) before heading out to use the ranges to verify they are open.  Rule of thumb is, if the club house is rented or there is an event being held on the club grounds the ranges are CLOSED.

******* Change to the Range Backboards *******

The club has changed the backboards on all the ranges.  Club members can either bring a cardboard piece that is cut to the dimensions of 18" x 24" or get one stored in the storage box located at the rifle range in the middle of the shooting bench area under the table top.  The cardboard piece will be placed in the new target mounts located in front of the dirt backstops.  Take your cardboard piece and place it against the 2x4's and turn the nails to hold the cardboard in place.  We ask that when you are done using a cardboard piece on the range that you place it back in the storage box.  Members can also bring their own cardboard piece if they wish to do so.

Range Regularly Scheduled Events

Sunday Monthly Competitive Rifle Shoots

Anybody who has never shot trap is invited to come out and give it a try.  If you do not have a shotgun we will probably be able to find one for you to use if you show up.  We will teach you how to shoot trap.  Hearing protection and 12 Gauge ammunition will be available for purchase.  We have a very limited supply of eye protection (glasses) that you can borrow.
