Tannerite is Banned on the Club Grounds

Under Ohio Law, it is considered Dangerous Ordnance after mixing.

Still don't believe this stuff is dangerous?


Rifle Range Safety Course

The range safety course, required for all members who wish to use the rifle and pistol ranges, is conducted on the Second Sunday at 12:00 Noon every month. Members need only attend once. A green badge will be issued and then you are welcome to use the ranges.


Trap & Skeet

Open Sunday's from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
but not on Easter Sunday, unless YOU volunteer to run the desk! 
Dave is taking one weekend off, but you can call him to get trained to run the desk @ 440-392-4757

Shotgun shells - 12 or 20 Gauge for $7
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 still plenty of openings on the calendar!
Very few dates have been taken!!!
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

Our Trap machines came from

Howell Traps - Clay Target Machine Shooting Equipment


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.

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

5-Stand and Trap & Skeet Duty Rosters

There are lots of openings for volunteers! If the desk is not staffed, then Trap and Skeet or 5-Stand will not be open that Sunday.
