Trap & Skeet

Open Sunday's from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

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.

There are plenty of openings on the calendar!
Very few dates have been taken in 2014!
Pick your day to work the Trap & Skeet desk or the 5-Stand.

To Volunteer or get more information, contact
Pat Bujnocki at 216-486-4943.

We need more volunteers to assist with running the 5 stand.

We need volunteers and shooters!

This is a good way to earn your work hour credits!

Please sign up to work one or two Sundays. Sign up sheets are on the desk in the main clubhouse. If you are an old or new member an would like to volunteer, but do not feel qualified to open and run the 5-Stand, we will provide training.
