Next Meeting is August 12th at 1:00 pm

 

The Last Bruce Robb Club Shoot of the year will be on Shotgun Range

after the meeting.

 

Mike is going to need help with grounds and range as Jim Brotherton had

back surgery and will be laid up for a bit.

 

The Fall Shoot is August 31st, September 1st & 2nd.

This is a great time to show off the club, invite people out to see what we’re all about.  Help is always needed for the grounds, range, kitchen, primitive, and shotgun  (come on out volunteer for a bit and shoot).

Invite neighbors, friends, or anyone that has expressed an interest in muzzle loading, as the Spring and Fall shoots are a good time to

let people see what we do.

 

Hopefully, Everyone can do the jobs that they did last Spring and Fall

 

The LMLGC Ashley shotgun challenge will be at Ashley August 18.

Starts at 9am, bring a dish to pass for lunch and enough

powder and shot for 30 birds.   Ashley will have their kitchen open

for breakfast (it was donation last time). Cost is $10.00

 

Donations are always needed for the Primitive Range plunder box.

 

If anyone has old trophies, the club is always in need of them; Jim Brotherton recycles them for the kids’ Monte Heiser shoot.

                                                                   

Please remember to lock the gate whenever you use the club; and turn the tumblers after you open the lock. Lock the 2 locks together so Consumers can get in.          

 

For everyday shooting, use the white backers, save carboard backers for Club Events
