Youth Airgun Competition

Tuesday evening March 26, 2013 eleven youth came out to participate in the end of season airgun competition. These young gentlemen have demonstrated good sportsmanship, enthusiasm  and perseverance throughout the winter indoor season. Their shooting skills have improved as they learned to master the  techniques necessary to hoist a 10 lb. air rifle to their shoulder and hold it steady enough to send the lead pellet down range to the target and consistently hit a bull only  1.5″  in diameter.

Stoeger Airgun  Targets and Pellet Traps

Many thanks to the parents who supported their kids achievements during this program and to the instructors, Dave, Nich and Dave for their dedication and guidance.

 

 

 

 

 

Snow Clearing March 25th – No Shooting please.

No shooting will be permitted at the range on Monday March 25th.

During the day, equipment will be on site to clear away snow  in order to provide improved access to the various roadways and shooting venues as our winter snowload begins to recede.

All members are welcome to use the range once the equipment has left the property.

Your co-operation is appreciated.
