Great fun for all skill levels from the first time shooter to the skilled competitor! The National Shooting Sports Foundation Steel Rimfire Challenge is a .22 rifle and pistol program created to introduce new people to the shooting sports and provide a pathway to shooting competition.
Experience shooters will enjoy the fun filled thrill of competition while sharing their skill and knowledge with new shooters. The NSSF Rimfire Challenge can provide individuals or families with a fun and exciting first-time shooting experience. Open to all individuals, over the age of 15 who can legally possess a firearm.
Cost for each participant is $20 (ammo is provided for this event).
Rescheduled to August 12th due to rain! Come test your skills in a variety of sporting activities to see who will get their name on the Shooter’s Challenge Cup this year!
This event is open to LSC members only, and the prize is a free year’s club membership, bragging rights as the top shooter in the club, and your name on the Illustrious Shooters Challenge Cup to prove it.
Congratulations Declan! He won the 2017 Archery Challenge at the LSC booth at the Chelmsford Country Fair on July 4th. Declan visited the booth on the evening of July 3rd, and with his two shots earned himself 12 extra tickets. When all the tickets were mixed up for the drawing on July 4th, his ended up on top. Congratulations again Declan, and thanks for taking the Archery Challenge!
Thanks also to all the members to put the booth together and answered questions during the two days on the Common: Dale Maybury, John Wren, Laura Wren, Jay Dolan, Herb Cline, Darlene Parker, Jim Martin, and Brian Herzog.
A lot of people stopped by to find out what LSC was all about, and we passed out quite a few membership applications and really promoted the Open House on September 9th. The Archery Challenge was once again hugely popular, with kids and adults alike testing their skill almost non-stop. It was a great fundraiser for the club, and Thursday Night Archery may see a bump in attendance too!
Come out, enjoy your club, and make history at the Lowell Sportsmen’s Club’s Member’s Field Day! Be there at noon for the club photo, and then all ranges will be open, to test your skill or try something new! We’ll have a chicken barbecue for members and guests, and a club scavenger hunt for discounted food and a chance to win a free membership!
The Spring Skeet League runs May 18 – July 27. Enter at any time, pay for games + one-time entry fee of $4 Members, $5 non-members. Shoot a total of 8 games during any public Skeet session, and the winner will be the competitor with the highest overall score.
The Spring 2017 newsletter [pdf] is being mailed this week, going out by both email and regular mail. If you don’t see your copy soon, or if you’d prefer to receive it by email (which would help the Club a lot by saving on postage), please contact Darlene Parker at email@example.com to update your address.
Thank you to everyone who helped out at the May work party. The focus was on the trap and skeet fields, and we got a lot of work done.
We couldn’t paint the houses due to the weather, but crews raked wads and broken clays off the fields, installed a new patterning board on Trap Field #1, did a thorough Spring cleaning on the Skeet Shelter, and split fire wood for winter.
As a bonus, work on the access ramp to the Clubhouse was also started.
Thank you to the following volunteers:John Siljander, Herb Cline, Ken Kedaras, Brian Herzog, Jim Martin, Julian Sluskonis, Phil Sullivan, Charlie, Frank Cronin, Buzz Brody, and John Abbott for donating their time to improve the club!
The next work party will be in June – watch for the announcement and please help if you can.
A new shelter was installed on the outdoor .22 range on May 1st, 2017. This started as a suggestion by a member, and although it took awhile, it’s a great new benefit for all members to use. Thanks to everyone who made this possible, and especially John Lemasurier for the granite retaining wall.
