Would you be interested in supporting it too?

Even a small donation could help Ross Killbery reach their fundraising goal. And if you can’t make a donation, it would be great if you could share the fundraiser to help spread the word.

Thanks for taking a look !

Annual Gord Dixon Memorial shoot

On Sunday September 20th 2020, the shotgun division of the Lake of the Woods had our 3rd Annual Gord Dixon Memorial shoot.

We shot 3 disciplines, which were sporting clays, trap singles and trap doubles.

We had 24 shooters and a lot of fun, we had a very nice BBQ for lunch and some very good shooting.

We were all winners but the prize takers were for sporting clays Phil Nick, for trap singles Andy Zabloski, for trap doubles was Rooke Pitura and if you shot all the disciplines we had a prize for high overall which is a combined score of all the disciplines, and the prize taker was Andy Rathwell from Dryden.

We did have guest from both Vermilion Bay and Dryden gun clubs, it was very nice to share our facility with our neighbors to the east.

Hopefully we will be without all the Covid-19 restrictions next year and we can have more people out.

Super Green

The new side berm on the Rifle range is now a lovely green color, soon to be grass we hope ! Thanks to all those involved as usual.

Many thanks from the LWGC

The Completion of the Rifle Range side berm is the fulfilment of a commitment made to the CFO Inspector that a side berm would be in place for the 2021 inspection.

The Lake of the Woods Gun Club owes a debt of gratitude and appreciation and would like to recognize the following people who made this possible:

Moncrief Construction Limited who assessed the job, surveyed the site, selected, and supplied heavy equipment during a busy construction season. We deeply appreciate their contribution and support.

Volunteer equipment operators and Club members Joe Chevalier and Steve Zabloski put in some long days. They were on Club property before 7 am and worked until 6:30 pm daily until the job was done. The results of their labor are a testament to the quality of their work.

Thank You!

Dwayne Cyr

Range Operator/Rifle Chairman

Ranges Open

The work on the Rifle Range Side Berm has reached a stage where the work has stopped allowing use of the range from 12:00hrs onward today.

Construction Announcement

Please be advised that construction of the earthen side berm at the Rifle Range has been paused due to wet weather and will resume when weather permits possibly Thursday or Friday.

It is expected the crew will work through the weekend to complete the project.

This will cause the continued closure of the Rifle and Trap ranges, Thursday through Sunday (7:00 am until 5:30 pm daily)

Stay tuned for more updates.

Sorry for the Delay
