5 STAND SPORTING CLAYS
We have had good success with the new 5 stand unit. It will take a little time to get folks to try it, as it is a humbling sport. But, it is fun! We will set up the 5 stand for groups of 5 or more shooters, willing to shoot 50 targets or more each. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes for 5 shooters to shoot 25 targets. Cost is $8.00 per 25 targets, with a mix of battue, rabbit, 90mm, and standard targets being thrown.
Bring your own target stands/holders for use on the range. Place them so the projectiles strike the berms to prevent ricochets. Clean up the range when finished. There is a set of rules posted on the range and bulletin board by range entrance. There are times the range will be closed for repairs and for law enforcement training, The sight in range is getting heavier use with the fall hunting season fast approaching. Be safe, follow all firearm safety rules, be courteous to other members on the range, remove targets when finished shooting, clean up shell casings, and range shelter. Range is open from 9:00AM to dusk.
