Rifle and Pistol Ranges are open from 8:00 am until dusk daily. You must be a member to use ranges. Ranges are closed on special occasions. Please check calendar for dates.
The BCC is a dedicated group of individuals promoting the protection and propagation of fish and game in a safe, sportsman-like and law-abiding manner. We encourage young and old alike to get involved with shooting and outdoor sports through our many safety programs and training in the proper care and use of hunting and fishing equipment. Our hope is to maintain for the use of the community our ranges and reserves for the purpose of developing characteristics of good fellowship, self discipline and self-reliance essential to good sportsmanship, true patriotism and citizenship.
As I write my last correspondence for this term as your president, I want to thank all the members and board of directors for the hard work and accomplishments which were completed in my first term. I feel honored to once again be allowed to serve you as a voice on the board for the next three years as well. I would also like to welcome back an old face as Steve Beres has come back to guide your club as well. As happy as we are to see Steve back we say a job well done to two dedicated board members who have put a lot of hard work and dedication into the board. They are Gene Thom, who is going to enjoy retirement, and Rick Larson, who is going to enjoy more time with his family. I am sure both will be around so please don’t be afraid to thank them for their dedicated service. During the elections, I was pleased to see many new faces step forward to dedicate their time to the club. This is a direction that is needed to keep your club moving forward. With the new board in place, the officers will be decided in the upcoming board meeting in April. I hope that you as a member keep the communication going and continue the effort to make BCC better for the future.
On an exciting note this year, we will mark the 40th anniversary of Thursday Night trap shooting for the club. The crew from Thursday night is planning a large event which you won’t want to miss—so get those buddies together and get out and celebrate a great 40 years of BCC trapshooting. Watch for more information coming down the pipe.
Finally, if you want to get involved in the club, we have various projects and events you can help out with. Some to mention will be our work days out at the pheasant farm which is under supervision of a new caretaker, Mark Trampf. Also, if you want an awarding time, Hunter Safety is always looking for instructors to assist our upcoming hunters. Lastly, we are open on Tuesdays, and on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month we will be throwing registered targets. We also need scorekeepers for this event. If interested in any of these—or anything else—contact a board member and we will get you headed in the right direction.
The Board of Director's Meeting Minutes are now being posted on the website under the About tab, or click here to view meeting minutes for this year.
Emergency Membership Meeting

Per Berlin Conservation Club By-Laws, all purchases in excess of $15,000 must be approved by BCC members. We are calling a special meeting for June 13th, 2016, at 6 PM to discuss and vote on the purchase of land west of the Skeet Range. The club needs your input!
This may also be a good time to think of making a monetary donation to the BCC Foundation and earmark it for the “BCC Land Purchase”. Your donation may be tax deductible—consult your tax advisor.
