The club trapshooting championship was held on Sept 27 with Melvin Wainscott taking home the champion's trophy. Congratulations to Melvin and all of our other winners. Pictures of the winners and their trophies can be found in the photo gallery.
At our most recent monthly business meeting, Sept. 5, 2014, a change was enacted by popular vote of the members in attendance. The officers and Board of Directors wanted to inform the membership of the change as soon as possible in order to minimize any possible inconvenience. It has been decided that fully automatic weapons will no longer be allowed on club ranges. The members in attendance felt that fully automatic weapon were not appropriate for our facility and so, they will no longer be allowed to be fired on club property. This change will be effective immediately. As with all club rules anyone found in violation will be asked to leave and may be subject to disciplinary action.
The start of the 2014 Fall Trap League has had to be postponed until we can work out the details with the Kentucky Trapshooters League. This will be our first ATA Registered League. The format will be fifty 16 yard targets per week for 6 weeks. Both ATA and non-ATA shooters can squad and shoot together. Look for more details to be posted soon on the Events page.
Our next ATA Registered Trap Shoot will be Saturday, October 11th. This shoot will be a part of the ATA's National Trapshooting Day celebration and special trophies and pins will be awarded at the shoot. The trap range opens at 10:00am for practice with the shoot starting at 11:00am. Food and drinks will be available. The rifle, pistol, and archery ranges will be closed for the duration of this event.
E-Mail Reminders - As a new service to our members we have begun sending out emails regarding upcoming events and range closures. We understand that many of you drive quite
a distance to use our facilities and it can be frustrating to arrive at the range only to find it closed for an organized event. In an effort to reduce the times this happens
to our members we have begun sending out email reminders of club events. We currently have valid email addresses for only about 50% of our members. If you have received an email
