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.
Happy summer to all of you!
The best part of the season is upon us with the Thursday Night Trap League celebrating its 40th year, and with the lighting upgrades which have allowed the 5 stand to run longer. The Big 50’s are growing and bring more shooters to enjoy our venue. Prior to reading this correspondence, hopefully you took advantage of the opportunity to help a great cause in the SHOOT'N for a REASON Cancer Shoot. Shelly Clark and the group do a fantastic job of both promoting the club as well as their event. Not to mention no one leaves without having some fun!
On an even more exciting note, if you have not heard, the land acquisition went through and at the end of the month the surveyor will mark out the territory, allowing us to secure the solvency of the club for years to come. A special shout out to directors Bob Pribnow, Steve Beres and Gene Thom in getting this purchase handled. Also, no, your hearing did not improve--the club finally decided to go ahead with a two-phase project to upgrade our sound system. Thanks to Steve Klika for spearheading this project. Phase one was operational for the Cancer Shoot with the second phase hopefully finalized prior to the Ironman. You may also have noticed that the club house is a little brighter as some of the Target Terminators put down their shotguns and grabbed paint brushes to spruce up the club house and trap houses. Steve Beres and Dave Polzin managed the crew while grappling out the pond. Thanks to all those who have worked at cleaning up the club. Please remember, if you help out at the club or pheasant farm, you should fill work cards out for either pheasants or shooting cards--just ask any board member about the opportunities.
In closing, we have a lot of shooting events coming up to include Sporting Clays, the Fall 100 Bird, Marathon ATA shoot, the Polish Shoot and, of course, our big event--the Ironman. It takes a lot of personnel to make these events successful and we can always use any help! Good luck to those who will be venturing to Rome for the State Shoot. Also to the Target Terminators, which will make the trek to Sparta, IL for the AIM event at the start of Grand Nationals week.
