FRED LOCH MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP SHOOT

Since 1995, the Factoryville Sportsmen’s Club has been holding a Sporting Clays Shoot to raise funds to provide scholarships for area senior students. This year the shoot is scheduled for Sunday May 6, 2018.

We will be offering  50 or 100 bird courses, and a meal afterwards. The 50 bird course will cost $25, including your meal; the 100 bird course will cost $45 including your meal. In both cases, each shooter will need to provide their own ammo. We look forward to seeing you again to support our program, do some shooting, enjoy your meal, and visit with fellow shooters. If you can’t be available for the shoot, please consider sponsoring a shooter ($25 or $45), sponsoring a shooting station ($25), or just making a donation to help support the Club’s scholarship program.

 

Without your support in this event, we would not be able to provide scholarships to the area senior students.  We annually recognize the leadership of a past president, Fred Loch, and support our right to bear arms, a constitutional right.

NRA Women on Target Shooting Clinic

We hosted an NRA Women on Target shooting clinic on behalf of Bridget Bodine from DeCoverly Kennels http://www.decoverlykennels.com/ DeCoverly Kennels English Setters.

It was a great success!

We did have some heavy rain and lost power but we didn’t let that stop us. We all had a great time.

I’d like to thank the board members of the Club for giving us the use of the grounds for the day and to all of the people who so graciously volunteered their time to make this a great day!

Long Range Shooting

Shoot for score against other shooters or just to stretch out your rifle, LR pistol, shotgun slugs, muzzleloaders, and rimfires at mostly steel targets of various sizes at 227Y, 337Y, 426Y.

Come earlier than posted start time for registration and setup suggested, but you don’t have to be there at the start nor stay the entire time. Dates, times, range fees as posted on the event calendar, with more details in the event information section here: Long Range Day Event Information or for the latest and quickest notifications, FAQs, updates, cancellations, etc., join the LRD group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/986239014763951/

Suppressor friendly – but steel core, armor piercing, tracer or incendiary ammo not allowed. Magnums and 50 cal welcome, but 50 cal will either need to shoot paper or bring your own steel or shoot paper. No full autos.

Non-shooters such as onlookers, spectators, spotters, and the curious are always welcome. Conversation, tips, Q&A with your long range game is also part of the of the fun!

In 2016 we tried preregistration through a particular site (which was a nightmare and confusing), if coming please use the Facebook group calendar as “going” so as better plan for a larger or smaller attendance.
