Match Results

Lake of the Woods Gun Club Kenora April 24, 2016 Score Match Results

The event was well attended with 19 smiling faces. The sun was shinning brightly but it was cool in the morning with a temperature of zero warming up to plus 12 in the afternoon. Winds were brisk 25K and gusting from all directions causing the wind flags to switch like windshield wipers and rarely agree on direction.

Spring Thaw

Spring is here so the gate will remain locked until the road is in suitable condition to drive on. The range is still open and available to be used but you will need to walk in.

Biathlon at LWGC

The Biathlon division at the club has been steadily growing and we have seen a lot of positive benefits fom the hard work of those involved.  Check out this promotional video and learn more about it!

Announcement

Due to the unbelievably warm fall weather we have had an extended shooting season for Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun and Archery.

The arrival of enough snow for skiing signals the start of Biathlon season and the Biathlon Division will be grooming their trails and commencing on snow training.

The plan is to maintain a plowed road from the highway to the club house and provide ample parking.

The road leaving the Club House parking lot will be barricaded to vehicle traffic to protect the groomed Biathlon trail from damage.

Please walk on the left side of the groomed trail which should set up solid like a sidewalk for easy walking.

There will be a plastic snow boggan provided for hauling your equipment to the firing line to shoot.

Good luck to the Biathlon Division athletes. May they meet their goals in 2016 and I am looking forward to hearing about their achievements in the media.

Thanks for your understanding.

Monday – Pistol has priority

Wednesday – Rifle has priority

Thursday afternoon – Biathlon has priority

All other days/times are on a first come first serve basis.
