The event is open to all women aged 14 and above; however, girls 14-17 years must be accompanied by an adult (i.e., must take all the same classes). Registration check-in begins at 8am, and classes begin at 9am. Lunch is provided. Each registrant will choose four (4) courses among the 25-30 courses being offered that day. There is also a turkey hunt for the first ten (10) women who sign up for it. The turkey hunt counts as the two (2) morning courses.

OK, now I’m sure you’re asking, what the heck is air gun field target?
Well, the goal of this sport is to provide the most fun possible while using an air gun! We combine the attributes and precision of formal bull’s-eye shooting with the instant gratification of seeing targets fall. We shoot at unmarked distances like they do in 3-D Archery. Our matches are set up in a natural hunting type environment where the shooter must take into account varied distances and wind. There you have it, Air Rifle Field Target!
2015 Match Schedule:May 3 - Introduction to Field Target Fun Match
On Saturday, May 16 @ 9:00am, we’ll clear the course and set up animals. We could use some help, bring your boots and tree trimming implements. Its a great way to fill your work hours! There will be a chili lunch provided.

to confirm that the course has been setup!
All shoots will be from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The range safety course, required for all members who wish to use the rifle and pistol ranges, is conducted on the Second Sunday at 12:00 Noon from March to January. Members need only attend once. A green badge will be issued and then you are welcome to use the ranges.
All ranges will be CLOSED from 5PM on Friday, July 24th until 3PM on Sunday, July 26th.
Occasionally, the clay target venues might be closed on a Sunday for unanticipated reasons. For instance, we were closed two days in 2007 because of storm related power failures. We were also closed two days because the snow was so bad, we could not get the plow to the clubhouse. If you have any question whether or not the club is open for shooting, we suggest you call (the phone number for the clubhouse is 440-474-4201) to confirm the club is open before making the drive.
We need Trap & Skeet desk volunteers as many Sundays have no desk coverage. If we do not have volunteers signed up, then we will not be open that Sunday. If you want to shoot, please sign up to cover the front desk. I will not continue to man the front desk when individuals that are signed up do not show up or do not have the courtesy to call and say they cannot make it on such and such a date. We have a large number of shooters and the numbers are growing. New members / new shooters -- Please sign up to take a few Sundays on the front desk or five stand this year and next. Sign up in the book at the clubhouse.
