Chelsea Rod & Gun Club

June 2016 Archery Shoot

We only had 13 shooters for the shoot in June. The first shoot in April we had 4′ of snow. The shoot in may it rained, and the June shoot the threat of rain was all day. July will be better. At least we had 3 Club members participate. Best all year! Remember to hand out flyers and post wherever you think some shooters might read about us.

There is a young man who is working on becoming an Eagle Scout. His name is Bobby Denny. he would like to help out on the bow course and as of right now he is drawing up plans for replacing the bridge. He has to submit plans on what he plans on doing and how. He will have to acquire all funding and labor. After he submits them to me I will take them to the Chelsea R&G board to approve. We also have discussed him building some sort of a “running deer” target along with another practice range possibly behind the Youth building so we would be able to start the course from the opposite end at times.


I met him over at the Clubhouse today to measure and take pictures of the bridge and I tried to show him the course. I hate to say this but since the last shoot the course has fell into disrepair. Trees are down and a lot of limbs have to be picked up and or trimmed. I know a couple of you are going to be on vacation the first two weeks of July but the rest of us are going to have to step it up. We will not be using the field for the rest of the year, except possibly the last shoot of September, so the five targets located there will have to be relocated. There is a large tree down between targets #22 and #23 that will have to be removed. Breck and Greg, Target #20 will end up in the same place as it is right now but it won’t be going down the trail, it will be down the hill. I can be there just about anytime if someone wants to get with me to have a work bee. Chainsaw, pole saw, pruners, post hole digger, shovel, and drill will be needed. I will have to check the Club calendar to see what is going on as far as activities that would jeopardize our working the course.

Some members from Jackson County Outdoor Club attended our shoot in June and I for one am planning on attending their upcoming shoot this Sunday, June 26th so if anyone would like to attend, let me know.

Have a great 4th and be safe, Len Ellsworth

Saturday Trap Shoot – March 9th, 2013

Saturday, March 9th 9 am- Noon: Trap Shoot

Our March fun shoot is coming up this next Saturday, March 9th. This will be our Leprechaun themed shoot to prep for the St. Patty’s Day scholarship dinner fundraiser.  We likely be setting up the “Redneck Fivestand” (weather permitting).  So expect mixed singles/reports/doubles .  We will also have a standard Trap field available as well.

Our “Leprechaun Shoot” will be much like a turkey shoot, so bring your turkey gun/tight choke, but our shells will be used!  We will either do this with some prizes or a 50/50 deal.
As always eye and ear protection are required.  Target loads only please (# 7.5 to # 9 shot).
See our Trap Shoot page in the Public events for details and cost information.

Oct 14 Pistol Shoot

Just a reminder about the CR&G pistol shoot this Sunday starting at 11:00. The weather forecast isn’t looking too good, but I’ll be there anyway, if for nothing else than to say it is cancelled if necessary.

Hope to see you out there.

CPL/CCW Classes – July 20th/21st, 2012

The CPL / First Steps class is coming on July 20th at 5 pm, and the 21st at 9 am. We encourage anyone who is interested in obtaining a CPL, or even learning some good information about home defense, to attend this class. It’s a VERY valuable learning experience, and even if you do not plan to carry a concealed pistol, helps make it easier to purchase a handgun since you do not have to get a prior purchase permit before purchasing.

First Steps Class: July 20th at 5pm
CPL Class: July 21st at 9am

Both classes must be attended to receive a certificate for first time CPL.
Only the CPL class is needed for renewal of an existing CPL.
Total Cost for both classes: $125.00

Contact Roy Margenau (517)-522-6175 for more information and to get signed up!
