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.

NEW WEEKDAY LOWER RANGE SCHEDULE BEGINS!
Posted: October 7, 2016 at 10:07 pm by Nick Wagner

On October 18, 2016, Supervised Shooting will resume at the Lower Range.  The rollout of RSO scheduled days is going to be slow at first, but as more RSOs volunteer, we will have more days available throughout each month.

EVERY FIRST FRIDAY of the month from 1:00pm – 5:00pm
EVERY THIRD TUESDAY of the month from 10:00am – 2:00pm

Depending on the response to this renewed shooting opportunity, and pending the recruitment of additional RSO volunteers, we hope to expand the schedule to include additional days and times convenient for all club members. However, the small number of RSOs available for weekday duty allows only for the limited schedule noted above.

Please consult the website for the posted schedule for weekday supervised shooting. As always, SAFETY is of paramount importance and the RSOs on duty will appreciate your attention and compliance to safe shooting for all.

Comments & Suggestions are welcome. Dates for new RSO training and certification will be published in the near future.

MAY 7th RANGE CLEAN-UP PROJECTS
Posted: April 17, 2016 at 3:54 pm by Nick Wagner

This is a reminder that our annual club cleanup and maintenance day is fast approaching. The purpose of this day is to give you an opportunity to give something back to your club.

We have been able to keep our dues as low as they are because of members volunteering their time and skills. Last year we had a very low turnout and we had to postpone a good number of maintenance projects and, for a few, we had to spend your dues money to complete them with contracted help.

To keep our club as beautiful, functional, and safe as it is takes work. Please help us.

Below are tasks that we have identified as needing to be completed. Some require specific skills (electrician, carpenter, mechanic) but most lend themselves to being accomplished with just being a handy person or having a strong back.

MAY 7th RANGE CLEAN-UP PROJECTS
(This list is not all inclusive – there will be more projects not included below.)

AIRGUN RANGE

  • Install new fencing.
  • Power wash and paint picnic tables.
  • Remove very large brush pile to burn pit.
  • Continue to chop stumps for parking area.
  • Mow, trim and extend the Field Target lanes.
  • Blow and mulch leaves off of the covered range.

UPPER RANGE (Click here for project details.)

  • Repair step on clubhouse deck
  • Replace Molding at bottom of club house front door

  • Remount wired in Skeet House #1 – upper level
  • Spray Weed/Grass killer around buildings, light posts, etc. to facilitate grass mowing
  • Create Flagpole Base – YES! The club is getting a flagpole!

PISTOL PIT

  • Scrape, Prime and Paint the tables and stands – all wood
  • Prime and paint the Safe Area tables to a bright orange color
  • Assemble 2 picnic tables – all parts will be there.
  • Construct with wood new target stands – all wood is cut to size and ready to assemble
  • Rearrange the supply trailer in inventory
  • Grease and loosen up the trailer doors to be easy to open and close
  • Replace OSB on plate racks

  • Paint metal post protectors bright yellow.
  • Paint 12" yellow lines on backers to protect 2×4 cross braces.
  • If wind allows burn trash pile.
  • Rake leaves from around all firing lines.
  • Trim sides of berms to cleanup any trees/brush obstructing view down range.
  • Cut OSB 4-8 sheets to 2-8 sheets for Goff range backers.
  • Cleanup lumber under shed and rotate newest to oldest.
  • Construct shelves in lower storage shed.

Things you might bring for tools – rakes, shovels, paint brush, scrapers, screw guns, hammers, nails, screws, saws, work gloves, cleaning supplies. We’ll have much of this but the more the better.

 

As you can see, we have a lot to do. We plan on starting at 8:00 AM. If you give an hour, a couple of hours, half a day, whatever, to volunteer it will certainly be appreciated by all who use our club.

Of course, we will again provide a delicious barbecued pulled pork lunch.

Our whole club thanks you for any help that you can give us.
