After almost 6 years of carrying a heavy load as Membership Chairman, Pistol Co-Chairman, assisting with training, construction, club maintenance and many other jobs, Eric Liznick is stepping back to take time to enjoy life. Eric’s tenure has contributed to the growth and prosperity of LWGC.
We, the Board of Directors and members wish to extend our thanks and gratitude to Eric for all his hard work and devotion to the Club.
Susan Evenden, has graciously agreed to take over as Membership Chairman from Eric. Please welcome Susan as our new Membership Chairman.
The full transition will likely take until September. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Due to the expected poor weather Saturday 2nd June, the scheduled Pistol Action shoot has been moved to the next day, Sunday 3rd.
The fire ban has been lifted so the steel gongs will be back in service today.
Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
The position of the Board of Directors of Lake of the Woods Gun Club is that Bill C-71 will have
an adverse and detrimental effect on the recreational and sport shooting communities and our
members. As such, the Board of Directors of LWGC strongly opposes Bill C-71.
We call upon our members to become engaged and informed and express their opposition to
Bill C-71 to MP Bob Nault.
Also, please find time to sign this e petition and encourage as many people as possible to sign
it. With over 75,000 signatures, it is the second most signed petition ever.

Rifle Division Holds Spring 2018 100 Meter Score Match
Sixteen competitors attended the April 29th Hunter Bench Rest Match. The best part was the tailwind gusting to 50 k. It was strong enough to blow over wind flags. This had to be the most challenging 100-meter match yet as far as wind conditions. Hunter Calder from Fort Frances won Hunter Class with a borrowed rifle in his very first Benchrest competition. Also, Al Smith the old varmint hunter from a way back won Varmint Hunter Class with a rifle unfamiliar to him.
All scores out of 250 possible points.
1st Hunter Calder 232 – 3X
2nd Rod MacDonell 216
3rd Brian Prouty 216
