Dues Statements

The Dues Statements and Newsletter were mailed out to members in good standing on Monday, December 21. If you joined in November or December, you will NOT receive a Dues Statement and you will receive a new 2016 membership card in March. Please remember that your current membership card is good until April 1, 2016.

Please, do not set your dues statement aside and forget where you put it. Please write your check and return it as soon as possible. But, you must return your ENTIRE Dues Statement with your check by February 28, 2016 or you will be assessed a $25 Late Fee. Please mark any corrections (in red if possible) on your Dues Statement so that your record can be corrected.

If you have moved and not let the club know your new mailing address, now would be a good time to get it updated!

The PO Box is not filling up every day like it was earlier. Only about half of the members statements have been returned. You can bring it with you to the member meeting this Sunday. Find your statement and mail it back with your check today!

New membership cards will be mailed out in March before the expiration date of your old membership card on April 1, 2016.

Stay out of the mud by the new pistol bays!

Stay of the Pistol Bay Driveway!
There have been several sets of tracks in the mud back here. The area is not ready for use. Please stay out!
As you can see, some genius got stuck and tore up the brand new road.

Trap & Skeet

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

New concessions

Shotgun shells - 20 Gauge for $8 and 12 Gauge for $6
Hot Dogs - $1
Pop - $1

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 2016!
No one has signed up in January, February or March!!!
Pick your day to work the Trap & Skeet desk or the 5-Stand.

To Volunteer or get more information, contact
David Nofziger @ 440-392-4757 .

5-Stand

5-Stand is a variation of Sporting Clays shooting. Each round consists of 25 targets being shot from 5 different shooting stations. We have seven traps to throw a variety of different types of target presentations.

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


Sign up in the book in clubhouse or call Dave.
If we do not have volunteers, we will not open the 5 stand.

We need volunteers and shooters!

This is a good way to earn your work hour credits!
(if you volunteer to run the 5-Stand)

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.
