The Muskogee Gun Club is a NRA Affiliate that was founded to encourage organized pistol and rifle shooting amongst its members. The aim of these activities is for members to gain knowledge of safe handling and proper care of firearms, as well as improved marksmanship. The club meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm: Muskogee Public Library, 801 W Okmulgee St.
Well the workday we had to prepare for the Zombie Shoot was a bust. A big thank you to Dee Page and Mr. Dealy for showing up for work day. We got stuff done ,but not enough to hold the Zombie Shoot. Lack of participation is to blame for the cancellation so sorry about the inconvenience,but there you go. We don’t have the shooting events we had just a year ago due to the lack of interest of the membership. Hopefully as we slow down for the winter season the next year will bring a new surge of interest in the shooting sports at the club.
October is here and that means it is Zombie Stomping time again! Saturday October 25th we will be hunting them down and taking them out. More info will be given at our regular meeting. We are also having a work day Saturday the 18th to get ready for the Zombie Shoot. We need mowers and weedeaters, also need to repair back boards and make target stands so any help will be great.
Also for your information Carissa and Kevin Baker who give the conceal carry class at the range and own Okie Guns And Gear are having the grand opening of there new store at 1136 N. York Street, next to Zollies. Come in and have a look around and sign up for a chance to win a free Conceal Carry Class a$60.00 value. Today thru Saturday.
Since we have the Youth Sports Shoot on the 2nd of August we need to do a workday to clean and mow in preparation. Saturday July the 26th starting around 7:00 to try to beat the heat. If you have a mower or weed eater and can bring it we would appreciate it. We will be doing general cleanup we have no major projects at this time to do. There are a few spots left for this shoot so don’t wait to long if you want in.
Couple of things to let you in on.
MGC will be hosting the Youth Sportsfest Shooting Camp to be held on Saturday, August 2,2014 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. A fun opportunity for youth ages 9-18 years old, to learn more about firearm safety and shooting fundamentals and to experience a wide variety of shooting sports – all in one place – all in one day. The MUSKOGEE GUN CLUB, as well as Okie guns and gear and Page Firearms Training are excited to offer this rewarding and enjoyable experience to the youth of Northeastern Oklahoma.

So with this event we will need volunteers, and range safety officers to help out. If you can help come to the regular monthly meeting on July 21st at the library.
Also this means we need to do a cleanup day July 26th the Saturday before. We have a had a few of these before so you know the drill. This shooting event is for the kids so I would really like to see some real support for this event. If you can’t donate your time and labor maybe you can donate some extra ammo for the kids. The 25.00 dollars they are charging for this won’t cover all the costs of this event, it’s not being done for the money but to give kids a chance to experience different types of firearms and how to handle them correctly. We want them to come away from this with a understanding of firearms and not a fear of them.
Just a reminder we have a work day on Saturday June the 14. We need some warm bodies to mow, haul trash, and so on. Any help is appreciated. We will not be accepting any renewals on Saturday you must come early to the regular meetings to renew.
Well June the 1st and the lock has been changed to a keyed lock. If you don’t have a key you don’t get in, simple as that. About half of the normal membership has yet to renew. We had two membership sign up dates, one in April and one in May. If you did not renew at that time the only way to renew now is at the regular monthly meetings at the Muskogee Library at 6:00 o’clock. Due’s are still $50.00 a year, but this year we also have a range maintenance fee of $30.00 so total is $80.00 dollars for the year. If you are one of the lucky ones to be a lifetime member it is only $30.00 to renew. If you have attended one of the range orientation classes you don’t need to attend another. These are for new members or for past members who have not renewed in the last two years.
We have set June the 14th a Saturday for a Clean up and workday we will start around 8:00 and go till ?? mowers weed eaters garbage haulers all are needed. We might have someone providing lunch so if you think you can come out and help send me a Email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make a list, but no work no food! More info to come later (hopefully).
