With the year coming quickly to an end the renewal period for memberships is fast approaching. As a reminder all memberships will expire on December 31. On January 1, 2019, the lock on the gate will be changed and current gate keys will no longer work. The membership renewal period runs until February 28th after which even returning members will have to pay full price for a new membership. Due to the sales tax changes that were enacted earlier this year the cost of membership renewals will be $80, the regular $75 renewal fee plus sales tax rounded up. New memberships will now cost $160 to include sales tax.

Membership renewals, and new memberships, will be available every Wednesday evening from 2pm until approximately 7pm and on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm beginning Dec 26th and continuing until February 27th.


The Commonwealth of Kentucky recently passed new legislation that requires collecting sales tax on such things as memberships, guest fees, service fees, and event entry fees. This legislation also applies to 'Not for Profit' entities such as our club. The new legislation went into effect on July 1, 2018.

As a result, in order to remain compliant with state tax laws the club will have to start collecting sales tax on memberships. New memberships, membership renewals, and guest memberships will all be affected. As a result memberships purchased after July 1, 2018 will cost $160 for new memberships and $80 for renewals. Please understand that this is NOT an increase in membership dues but is the sales tax that the state is requiring we now collect.


The 2019 ATA Registered Trapshooting schedule is as follows:
Saturday, March 9, 2019
Saturday, April 13, 2019
Saturday, May 11, 2019
Saturday, May 25, 2019
Saturday, June 8, 2019
Saturday, June 22, 2019
Saturday, August 10, 2019
Saturday, September 14, 2019

For all registered shoots the gate will open at around 9:30am, the practice trap opens at 10am, and the shoot starts at 11am. The rifle, pistol, and archery ranges will be closed for the duration of those events.

Swap meets are being planned for the same days and hours as our registered shoots. All members and guests are welcome to come out and buy, sell, or trade. The swap meet will be open for the same hours as the trap shoot and will not result in the range being closed for any additional time.


Due to an increase in the cost of having new keys made the charge for a replacement key or failing to return your key when renewing membership has been raised from $5 to $10.


Beginning in January 2017 we will be offering guest memberships for the first time. After much discussion and debate on the subject it was decided to offer these guest memberships for 2017.

Any club member in good standing will be able to purchase a guest mebership. The guest membership will entitle the member to bring ONE guest with them to use the club ranges with the following rules and restrictions.

1. The member must accompany their guest and must have both their own membership card and the guest membership card with them at the range.

2. The guest does not have to be the same person every time the guest membership is used, but it may be used for only one guest at a time.
Example: A member may bring their brother on one visit, their son in law on another visit, and their boss on another visit, however a member could not bring them all on the same trip to the range.

3. The guest membership does not come with an extra key, the member has to be present with the guest so there is no need for an extra key.

4. The guest membership does not have voting rights attached nor does it allow participation in any member only club event such as the club trapshooting championship.

5. The guest membership otherwise follows the same rules as any other membership. The cost is $150 for the first year and $75 each year thereafter to be renewed during the same renewal period as regular memberships.

Reminder - 7/14/15 - In the interest of safety all ranges will be closed while the club property is being mowed, bush hogged, sprayed for weed control, or having any other required maintenance done. All other maintenance is done only on an as needed basis and we will keep any necessary range closures as brief as possible.


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 from the club in the last few weeks, congratulations! You are already on our mailing list. If you did not receive an email from the club and would like to be added to the email list, please send us a note HERE with your name and email address and we will get you added for future emails. This list will only be used for club business. If you are currently ON the list and wish to be taken off, please send us a note using the link above and we will remove you from the list.
