    Unfortunately Joe Gimmelli is no longer running the sporting clays course any longer. I think he is planning on moving out of our “gun friendly” state.
    As far as I know. the only clays shooting the club is doing now is trap shooting. I’m not sure what days they are running it though.
    Too bad, They had a great course.

    Joe Gimelli does an outstanding job running sporting clays. His directions are accurate, he follows up and calls you back when you phone him. The sporting clays course is challenging with lots of variety in all the shots. The trees and rock formations are beautiful, and the main building is a classical New England style club house/mansion which serves meals and even has the capacity for bed and breakfast reservations.

    I visited the club for the first time last weekend and expect to be back as much as possible. The members were all very courteous and especially helpful to my guests who are new to sporting clays. The course was excellent and the deep woods helped keep things cool on a hot summer day. Many thanks to Joe Gimelli and Lyell Williams for making our visit a memorable one.

    Went to the Coon Club this weekend and it’s a really nice course. The day we shot, they had about 10 stations open, but the director said they open more stations when the weather gets better. It’s definitely not a “gimme” course. The targets were on the difficult side of average. Bring your own cart if you need to ride, but the walking wasn’t difficult even in the snow. They shoot most Sundays and Thursdays in the Summer.

    Very nice sporting clays set-up. Gets better every visit. They are now up to 16 stations. Well organized. Get on their e-mailing list and shoot some of the fun shoots like the 3-shot shoot, for pumps & autos.
