Volume 25 Issue 2                     Feburary  2021


Unfortunately, this new year finds us still under the governor’s mandate restricting the number of people at each event and use of the clubhouse.  While I know that some of you do not agree with this mandate, we are using a state- owned range and must follow their guidelines if we want to continue to use the range.  Since we are not allowed to enter the clubhouse, even to use the restroom facilities, we are providing a port-o-let located near our building by the trap range.

The following is a quote from KY Department of Fish and Wildlife:
Effective July 20, 2020 gatherings must be limited to 10 people or fewer per Governor’s order. 
This includes trap and skeet shoots/practices, meetings, events, etc. 
If a club/organization is requesting to utilize WMA grounds the group must be able to host
with 10 or less people present and be able to follow all Healthy at Work and CDC guidance.
Our clubhouses remain closed.”

    We must strictly adhere to the following CDC guidelines:

*No more than 10 people allowed at any time.

*Must remain at least 6 feet apart

*Must have sanitizing supplies available and disinfect any common surfaces after each use

*Face masks are required if you cannot social distance.

Please be courteous and help us keep the range open by strictly following these guidelines.



Annual Meeting

We are required by our by-laws to hold an annual meeting and an election of officers.
Since we were unable to do so in November, and it looks like it will be several months before we can meet in person, we are going to hold a virtual election.

The nominating committee has proposed the following slate of officers:

President: Penny Wichman
Vice-President: Tom Taylor
Secretary: Barry Akins
Treasurer: Chuck Bellanca

Voting will take place February 1-15.

Please vote either Yes or No to the above slate of officers by

  1. Email:

  2. Text: 859-240-9057
