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.
We are holding one more Club Level Safety Course on the 25th July in the morning.
Attendance at the CLSC is a requirement for every new handgun member. You will not be able to shoot on the pistol range until you have completed this course. A handgun card will be issued to you upon successful completion replacing your current general card.
The CLSC course is scheduled for Saturday, July 25th 2020. The course will begin at 9:00 am. The course is approximately 3 hours in duration, including the practical component.

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.
