Self Supervised Shooter Training Notice
Posted: February 9, 2017 at 1:54 am by Nick Wagner
The Board of Directors has recently approved the resumption of the Self-Supervised Shooter program at SMGC for members of at least six months.
It’s most important to note that this program is about SAFETY first and will emphasize safe range practices and habits. Better marksmanship through increased practice during approved range hours (10 am till sunset or 9 pm in the summer) is the objective.
Training classes are scheduled for the third Saturday of each month beginning February 18, 2017. Class time is 9:30 am until around noon. If you’re running late don’t bother to come. Sign up for the next available class as we will not accept tardiness to a safety class. If you want to be there, BE THERE ON TIME.
The application is available on the SMGC EVENTS for you to complete and reserve your space in the next available class. Seating is limited to 20 people per class. There is no charge for members taking the class.
Classroom training material will be provided but you will need to bring a pen & pencil for note taking and test taking.
Every question on the test will come from the classroom discussion, so coffee and staying alert will also help you breeze through the course.
You will need to bring an unloaded firearm and Indoor Range approved ammunition for it (non-jacketed, less than 900 fps) to the class for your live fire safety demonstration proof test following the classroom portion.
Successful members will receive a yellow SSS card and lanyard immediately at the class conclusion.
Questions can be directed to the club Safety Officer, Tom McKenna, at email@example.com.

Clay Shooting Added as a Vicksburg Schools Club Sport
Posted: January 18, 2017 at 10:46 pm by Nick Wagner
By Sue Moore from South County News
What kind of interscholastic sport is this? No travel to other schools to compete. Scores kept digitally across the state. All scoring available on each athlete’s smart phone. It purports to be the safest youth sport in America, yet it involves shotguns in order to compete.
It is the Vicksburg Bulldog Clay Target Team, newly sanctioned as a club sport for Vicksburg students in grades 6 through 12. Members of the team will learn to shoot trap, learn safe gun handling and compete with other students across Michigan in what is reported to be the fastest growing youth sport in America by the USA High School Clay Target League.
