Trap Shoot June 17

Bring your shotguns and get ready for a friendly, fun, informal few hours of trap shooting (and whatever else we can dream up) with our fellow hunt club members, family and friends.  We plan to start around 10 am, at the Beacon Homestead, 263581 Southgate Road 26 (across from Wilder’s Lake).  See our Events page for contact info.

Regular Meeting June 1

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, June 1, at 7:30 pm, at our clubhouse (click for map).  Visitors are always welcome!

There will probably be discussion of our upcoming Trap Shoot, on June 17.

Remember, this is our last meeting before summer!  We don’t have regular meetings in July and August.  We’ll get together for the Trap Shoot in June, and our Family Day on Sunday July 9.
