Club House Closed Because of COVID-19

posted Mar 18, 2020, 2:21 PM by Mike Niva

To all FCC Members

 

With the growing concern over the COVID-19 Virus, we are following the mandated orders from our Governor and CDC. The club is suspending all Club activities and League Shooting events until further notice. The Club House is closed.

The shooting range is still open for members. We ask all members to be safe and follow the CDC recommendations.

At this time we don’t have any idea how long this will last. We will send out updates as we know them.

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.
