The Reopening Committee has recommended to the CR&GC Board that we reopen Archery 3-D, Pistol Shoots and Trap. The Board reviewed and agreed with the recommendation.
Reopening Committee recommendation:
“CRGC has been proactively reviewing its schedule of events in anticipation of the of relaxation of Gov. Whitmer’s Executive Orders. This has been through a committee reviewing what activities we believe can and cannot be safely resumed by its members and guests. These and future recommendations have and will be presented to the board for approval.
At this time, CRGC will be reopening trap shoots, popup target shoots and archery shoots effective immediately. All other events and meetings continue to be on hold.
Participation is voluntary. By participating, people do so at their own risk as following the guidelines is not a guarantee that they will not contract the Coronavirus. While we will have hand sanitizer available, it will be your responsibility to provide your own face mask or other items you feel comfortable having. If you feel this is a risk to you or your family, are not feeling well or have any concerns, we ask that you refrain from participation and remain safe at home. We do invite you to visit us in the future.
Our first event of the month will be the 3D archery shoot on Sunday, June 7. Tuesday trap shoots will resume on June 9 with Saturday trap shoot to resume on June 13. Popup target shoot will be starting again on June 27.
Please continue to check Facebook and our website for updates.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and continued support.”
Detailed guidelines are being developed and will be posted at the events.
I want to thank the Reopening Committee and the CR&GC Board for your time and effort meeting and preparing this recommendation.
We picked up 5 new targets for the 3D course. Most impressive is the Grizzly bear. Targets were purchased through the generous donation made by Whitetails Unlimited – Chelsea Chapter. Thank you Whitetails and please remember to support that organization for their work.
We have our first shoot Feb 1 which will be indoors in the YTF. All shooters start at 10am. Lunch is included. Dave Drenth attended the Traditional Archery Expo in Kalamazoo in January. He reports a great turn out and interest in the club on many levels. He is also working on a few other promotional items for the future. Thanks, Dave for all your efforts!

On August 9, Michigan United Conservation Clubs is hosted its 2019 Michigan Out-of-Doors Youth Camp Charity Shoot at Multi-Lakes Conservation Association.
The funds raised from this event will go towards the Michigan Out-of-Doors Youth Camp in Chelsea, MI. Since 1946, the MOOD Youth Camp has instilled values of conservation and natural resources stewardship in more than 58,000 youth. The funds raised will help to introduce more children to the outdoors, buy needed camp supplies and plant MUCC’s message of uniting citizens to conserve, protect and enhance Michigan’s natural resources and outdoor heritage in the next generation of conservationists.
We have a pop up shoot coming on August 24th @ 10am. Bring your pistols/carbines. 20 target presentations per each $5 relay. You need metallic bullets to trip the targets. Restrictions are magnum rifles and shotguns.
We had a great day for the June shoot. Rain held off for a whole day and we had a new shipment of mosquitoes that arrived just in time! 5 new shooters came out with some interest in membership.
