Don Schroeder Receives 2018 Distinguished Service Award

Distinguished Service Award
Pictured here are Don Schroeder (right) and Mark Bening (President). Don is the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Service Award. The award is given out each year to an individual who volunteers and is willing to do the extra work for the club. Don has volunteered for years with Sporting Clays, cutting wood for Bluebird day; he was a firearm safety instructor at Gopher for years and helps with other events when asked. The award was presented on January 9, 2018.



50 & 100 Yard Range Cardboard Backers

The cardboard backers used to hang targets on the 50 & 100 yard rifle ranges are 18″ x 30″.
Please bring your own cardboard in case there is not any left on the range.
Targets are to be hung on the cardboard only – PLEASE DO NOT SHOOT AT THE WOOD CROSS MEMBER FRAMES!!



Dinners Served at Member Meetings

At the monthly member meetings (second Tuesday of each month at 8 PM – except November) a dinner will be served at a minimal cost.

The meal will be ready by 7:00 PM. The cost usually ranges from $3 to $5. The January 2015 member meeting will have a special meal of steak. The price for that will run a bit more at $10.

Hope to see you all there!
