    The Trap and Skeet fields are closed today due to high winds.

    Our weather station is offline, and attempts to revive it today have been unsuccessful. However, it's currently 42 with a wind chill in the 30s. Winds are 30-40 MPH and visibility varies from clear to 100 yards with low clouds. If visibility gets less that 100 yards, we will be closing the rifle/pistol ranges as well. Check our webpage for updates on Rifle/Pistol range status.

    A representative from the Institute for Wildlife Studies was at the club during the sight-in day and was well received. Their representative has offered to come back with several rounds of lead-free ammo in the most popular hunting calibers and allow our members to try shooting some of the lead free ammo in their our rifles. If you are interested in doing this, please email me and let me know what caliber. We are finalizing a date for this event. For more information, go to huntingwithnonlead.org.
