News and Announcement
Removal of Hartford Conservation Club Information
While I understand that the Hartford Club had reasons for some frustration, a message they sent to their membership has given me reason to remove their information from this site. If you have questions, I will answer individual emails, but I will not issue any additional information on this site. I did not make this decision lightly and suffice it to say this is not the first time they have made disparaging comments about me and this website.
Apology from the Webmaster
I owe an apology to the member clubs. Since June, I have had a number of events that have prevented me from spending any time on the computer. As a result, I have failed to post any event updates, new shoots, shoot results, or news. I have also been unable to respond to emails. I sincerely apologize for the lack of attention to the site. I now have been able to start spending some time working on the site again, and I am trying to get the updates completed. My plan is to get most done by the end of this week, but after looking at the email inbox, I'm not sure if that will be possible. I will try to prioritize the tasks to get the most critical ones done first.
New Shoot listed for this weekend
A shoot has been added for June 16 at the Dunbar club. Please note the information.
Note the change- St. Anna 50 target shoot
Please note that the date has changed for the St. Anna shoot. It is now scheduled for July 14.
Marquardt Hospice 2018 Sporting Clay Shoot Out
I obtained information about a Sporting Clays Shoot to benefit the Marquardt Village Hospice. After reviewing the Marquardt website (marquardtvillage.org), I decided to include the shoot information and registration form.
Hartford Conservation & Gun Club
The Hartford Conservation Club will be holding a fish fry / shooting event fundraiser to support thier youth shooting teams. Please check out the information on the poster.
Lakeview Trap and Sport Club
There was an incorrect shoot date shown for Lakeview Sport and Trap. The information I was provided included a 30 target shoot on Easter Sunday, April 1. The date was furnished by a friend of Lorraine's, who made a mistake on the date. While I work hard to insure the information on the site is correct, occasionally there will be situations where an error exists. Both Lakeview Trap and Sport Club and I apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused.
Women in the Outdoors
There is a Women in the Outdoors event planned in Plymouth, WI on Aug 26-28, 2018. One of the representatives for a member club made me aware of it and suggested it may be of interest, and I agree. There is information on the web and Facebook. Click here for the web link.
Many of us are hunters as well as trap shooters. When should we start taking our children or grandchildren along with us? Check out the links page for an interesting article under Miscellaneous Links titled : Young Hunters: When to get children started.
The 2018 Calendar is updated with all information available to me. If you don't find the shoots for your favorite club, ask them to join the site and send me the info. Thanks.
Colleges with Trap and Skeet Programs
If you enjoy trap or skeet shooting, are in high school, and you're planning to attend college, you might want to consider schools that have strong trap and skeet programs. Attached is a list that could help get you connected with a college that can provide the major you are looking for and competitive shotgun shooting opportunities.
Shooting event to support Cancer Research
I was given some information about an organization called Gunning For Hope. The web site is GunningForHope.org. Check out the organization and consider supporting them.
Thanks to all who support "Cause Shoots".
We are all faced with challenges in our lives, but some take the form of serious health issues such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. Many fellow shooters are directly affected by these diseases, and other shooters rally to support them with fund raisers in the form of "Cause Shoots", such as the cancer shoots at Berlin and Hartford and the juvenile diabetes shoot at Eastshore. I personally want to thank all of you who support these wonderful causes.
REMEMBER: INTRODUCE SOMEONE TO SHOOTING. IT'S THE FUTURE OF THE SPORT
