    What a beautiful small club. Its nestled on the top of a rocky hemlock ridgeline overlooking the Naugatuck Valley. A huge lawn encircled fishing pond with lawn chairs is situated right next to the clubhouse. The smell of pine needles makes you feel like you’re at a summer camp. There’s a lot of acreage to this club. The clubhouse itself is clean, orderly, and huge, (since it houses an indoor archery range.) It also has an outdoor pistol and rifle range. The pistol range layout is separate and further down the hill, but the rifle range shares the same downrange area with the one trap range. (Scheduling keeps both disciplines from interfering with each other.) After trying all the contact numbers and emails on the clubs website, I finally got an email response from the president and was invited to shoot as his guest. As it turned out, the day we were to shoot, a club archery match was being held, so we scratched. Shotguns firing would have disturbed archers concentration. I got the impression this club is predominately an archery club. You will too. There are plastic animal targets set up all over the grounds.
    I called to reschedule a shoot. Again, there was no answer, so I finally just drove to the range during the scheduled shooting time on Sunday and lucked out. It was open. Directions were perfect.
    Guest cost was 3.50 a game. Very gentleman like members of all ages were shooting. The backdrop is a huge tall curved sandpit hill. Perfect targets were tossed. I didn’t see lights, so I’m going to assume there’s no night shooting. There wasn’t a stray piece of trash anywhere and the range was very clean. You can tell they have pride in their club. Plenty of shade everywhere to escape summer heat.
    If you can get a chance to shoot here, do so. If you like laid back relaxed trap shooting, this is the place to be. Just pray its open. I will come again when I’m in the area.
