To encourage the use of eye and ear protection, an ear plug dispenser and safety glasses have been provided (at the middle shooting shelter) for anyone who forgot theirs at home. Please return the glasses before leaving.
Other new items are a bin containing taget frames for mounting shotgun targets for turkey guns, buckshot and patterning. Using these off to the sides will extend the life of the regular Homasote frames which are destroyed by scatterguns.
Also, we now have a cart to make hauling gear and guns from your car to the benches and back easier, and all in one trip. Please return the cart to the gate for the next person to use.

Kehoe Camp, Bomoseen, VT
Monday, October 22nd
There will be a NRA Women On Target at Vermont F&W Kehoe Camp in Bomoseen, Vermont on Monday, October 22nd. The NRA WOT event is conducted such that the women participants are taken from the introduction of the safe handling of firearms to firing different types of guns.
The course will provide instruction on the use of rifles, shotguns and handguns. There is no charge for the course. All required materials and equipment will be provided. Lunch will be provided. The shooting portion of the NRA WOT will be conducted outdoors, so participants should dress
to be comfortable outside for most of the day.
It is expected that the cast and crew of the NRA TV Show "Friends of NRA" will be present to record this NRA WOT event for broadcast on its weekly Sunday evening show on The Outdoor Channel. The Friends of NRA TV crew will also record a separate segment with the UVM Sports Shooting Club.
The NRA WOT will run from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M..
The instructor will be retired Vermont State Police Lieutenant Clint Gray. Register by contacting Clint at 802-535-7111 or email@example.com
This NRA Women On Target event is a joint project of the Friends of NRA and Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
|Clean up day Crew
Thanks to the members who joined some of the club board trustees on Spring Clean Up Day May 5th to clean and make repairs to the range, we all benefit from their hard work and team spirit.
Mike Robbins, Chuck Keeler, Jim Slater, John Dix, Douglas Hoffman, Paul Daudelin, Frank Lafroboise, Dave Barry and Susan Winter. Apologies if we omitted anyone.
Having seen the constant sorry state of the 7 yard target frames, concerned member Dave Barry took the initiative on his own to fabricate and install a unique frame. It is welded of rugged steel and uses (2) 2X4s, 4 brackets and a slide in - slide out easy change homosote backer. Many thanks to him for a great job.
