You bring your own shotgun. We provide the shells. We (usually) also have a house shotgun if you don’t have one.

There will be a 50/50, a gun raffle and a concession stand. See you there!

Proceeds go to the local and international charities the Club supports.

For the uninitiated, this is shooting at paper targets. And one of our fundraisers. The winner of each round of ten shooters receives a frozen turkey or gift card.
