Thursday Night Trap Club House is Still Closed

posted May 30, 2020, 3:06 AM by Mike Niva

To all trap shooters,
 We are going to attempt to open for trap shooting on Thursday June 4th. (Thursdays only)
The times will be from 4-8 P.M. The club house will be closed, so bring everything you need.
We will not be selling shells, food, or beverages. Social distancing will be the rule. Bring correct 
change or tokens if you have them, that will minimize contact. Also bring a lawn chair if you
want. That will help with distancing. We are going to start spraying for mosquitoes, but not sure when.
Would be a good idea to bring spray.  This is a test to get an idea if this will all work. I'm sure that we will
have to tweek a few things, but it is a start. If it goes well, we may consider a short 10 week league.
This shoot is for members only, it's not open to the public.

Range is back open 5-1-2020

posted May 1, 2020, 8:48 AM by Mike Niva

 Friday May 1st.
To all FCC members:
   As you know the outdoor range has been closed for several weeks.
According to MUCC (Michigan United Conservation Clubs) of which we are a member,
we can be open because we are a private club.  This comes with RESTRICTIONS.
The range will be open to members only, period. The only reason we can open is we are private
and not open to the public. Don't bring your friends out to shoot at this time. We also need to abide by the
6 foot distance rule between individuals who do not reside in the same household.
We highly recommend you wear a face mask and bring some hand sanitizer with you. 
Please follow all CDC recommendations.
Remember everyone will be touching the range light switches etc. Please don't all rush
out to the club to shoot. There will be limited benches to use if we stay 6 ft. apart. If we see overcrowding on the
video cameras, we will be forced to close again. We would very much like to see the range stay open.
  Also, please do your part to keep the range clean. When things get back to normal, if there is 
a normal anymore, we plan to make more steel target stands for all the different yardages.
We feel we have a nice club and it only takes a few to leave a mess, so please do your part
to keep FCC clean.

                                                          Thank you
                                                          Richard Gunderman

Cleanliness at the range has been an issue for quite some time, and seems to be getting worse as of late.  The FCC board is asking for all members and guests to make an extra effort to clean up after shooting-- both at the benches, and around the berms and target areas.  We attempt to maintain a safe and clean place to shoot, and now we are asking shooters to respect the club and other members by leaving the range in “as good or better” condition than when you arrived.

Please do your share by helping in these areas:

  • ·        Police your brass
  • ·        Go downrange and collect your targets when the range is at cease fire and the range lights are on.  DO NOT leave your targets for the next guy to shoot—no matter how good their condition.  The next guy will not pick them up either, because they are “not his”, and they end up on the ground.
  • ·        DO NOT shoot the target stands that are provided!  It takes a lot of time and effort to constantly keep the range supplied.  If they continue to be shot up, we will stop providing them, and shooters will have to bring their own.
  • ·        If we see shooters that repeatedly fail to clean up after themselves, we may be forced to revoke their membership.

We thank you all in advance for your cooperation, and for keeping our facilities in excellent condition.


Thank You!!

Rabbit & Squirrel Derby Feb 22nd, 2020

Membership Update, please read

Dear members,

Thank you all for your past support and effort to make Fruitport Conservation Club a place we can all be proud of.

Your support has allowed many improvements to the club in recent years.  We have developed a 3D archery course, built a second trap field, and added more shooting benches at the range. We also have had new sand berms built and improved portions of other berms at the range..  This past summer we added fill sand near the archery tower to eliminate flooding in that area.  We also have chosen to support many local conservation-minded projects and youth programs.

As of January 1, 2020, club dues will increase to $55 per year to offset rising costs of doing business, maintaining the club, and funding future improvements.  Our most immediate need is to rebuild the full length of the 100 yard berm.  This berm needs improvement badly, and we have been lucky to find a great deal on the sand for this project, but it is still estimated to cost approximately $20,000 to complete the berm.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping our club a nice, and safe, facility for all to enjoy.

Sincerely,

Fruitport Conservation Club Board

A BIG Thank You to Terinna Morton, and family!

Thank you for all the work you did to put together another successful and fun Rabbit/Squirrel Derby.
The annual rabbit/squirrel derby. The event was attended by approximately 42 kids and 46 adults. The kids all went hunting, and came back to the club for a great lunch. There were many great prizes and drawings, and every kid in attendance went home with at least 1 prize, many kids were lucky enough to win more. This has been a great event to teach kids how to safely hunt, and have a great day in the outdoors.
