Fresh new year for the Sportsmen Association

The South Cariboo Sportsmen Association is looking forward to another active year on the range.

Happy New Year from the South Cariboo Sportsmen Association (the area gun club). Over this past year, the club has been very active with weekly Tuesday night Trap Shoots as well as several Sporting Clay Shoots at our range. We also co-hosted one event with the Kamloops Gun Club. The club held a Blackpowder Shoot during the Thanksgiving weekend with shooters coming from throughout the Province. It was very successful and promises to be even bigger and better in 2015.

During the year we held two clean-up days and thanks to the volunteers who attended the range has been in good shape for all shooting disciplines. New signs were put up at both gates, identifying the range and providing information of where memberships may be purchased.

Our new year runs from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31. Memberships can be purchased at the Ashcroft Irly Store and the Cache Creek Machine Shop. Thank You to both business’s for their assistance.

Our AGM will be held on Monday, Feb. 16 at 7 pm, in the Ashcroft Senior Secondary School library. You must be a current (2015), paid up, member of the club in order to be eligible to vote at the AGM.

Jerry Fiddick, President,

South Cariboo Sportsmen Association
