An ODNR sponsored Hunter’s Education will be taking place on April 4th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM inside the clubhouse. If you have a youth (or yourself!) that is interested in attending, sign up here. As of this posting, ODNR reports 34 seats remaining in the class.
Members: In the past, this has not affected use of the range on the outside of the building; however, kindly check in with Bruce on this before assuming this to still be the case. :

The club has been in the process of cutting down trees that were in distress and/or would pose a threat to the ongoing health of the club or property. As a result there is an excess of downed trees needing to be cut into manageable sizes and removed. This wood is free to any member who wants to retrieve it until the end of February. Please do not drive vehicles off of the designated areas. If you need assistance getting wood from areas not accessible by vehicle, let Dan Slanker know and he’ll arrange to use the tractor to assist you.
After February, the club will offer the wood to a company that will remove it and sell it for profit.

Here are two upcoming events to put on your radar:
- Shotgun Championship on September 21st at Noon. Bring your game face, your shotgun and shotgun gear, and some ammo! To my knowledge each round is the same cost as usual.
- Hunters Education Sign-ups Are Now Available. You must sign up on the ODNR website. As of this post on 9/15, there are 37 seats still available. These go very fast, they are first-come, first-serve, and when they are gone, they are gone – we can’t change it.
NOTE: When the page comes up, click the Checkbox to the left of our club and then click the Continue button in the bottom right.
Here’s the link for those that need it.
As always, send any questions our way by using the Contact Us link and we’ll get them routed to the appropriate person.
Just a reminder that the club and grounds will be unavailable for use on Saturday, July 12th, 2014 starting in the early morning and going through about 5:00 PM. This is for the Clark County 4-H Shooting Sports Judging, which takes place at the club since there is no safe place to conduct judging at the fairgrounds.
All matches have been cancelled for this Saturday as well. Please check with Chris to find out when they will be rescheduled.
If you are coming out to the club for any reason on this day and during these times, please leave any firearms locked safely in your vehicle, as all firearms in use are being monitored by range personnel.
Thanks for your understanding!
Our 2014 Youth Trap Shoot was a success!
