Member Updates

The work party was good, the Range property looks nice! Thank you to all of you who donated your equipment and time! It is appreciated! Thank you to those who made donations!
Fence and Gate were installed, Lock the gate after yourself going in and out, this will avoid any unauthorized person entering the club ranges while you are present, you will not have to worry about if the person is a member or not unless you see them walk in, then you may want to ask their purpose. (they may want to join and could be looking for information).
The gate would be open during an event but a sign will be up to alert members why the gate is open.
The remainder road work should be completed in July, please assist in selling tickets. email secretary at: secretary@skowhegansportsmansclub.org

Projects in the Works:

Shed for Pistol Range- looking at shed options, do we purchase, build, how big, what it will hold, ect. ideas are welcome. All ideas should include a floorplan complete with dimensions and cost of materials.

Camera system

New updated Club Sign

  • Club Cameras are underway, be sure if you see any activity that is not appropriate that you record license plate number, description of vehicle and person and report.

Looking ahead…..2022 projected projects will make the club property more accessible, safer and manageable.

Our road to the Rifle and Pistol range off of the club parking lot will be fixed to allow drainage so that vehicles can pass without issue and hopefully allowing more access throughout the year.

The gates/fence/ and camera system will allow our club property to be protected and know who is coming and going if needed.

To complete the projects we will need to be sure to continue fundraising, thank you to all who are selling and purchasing tickets to our raffles! The funds keep making this a better facility.
