St-Stanislas-de-Kostka, Québec - 25-27 Août 2005

Back from the Dead

The Valleyfield club has made a remarkable comeback in the last three or four years, as the club at that juncture looked like it would be closed due to years of neglect.

Repairs had not been made on machines or buildings for more than a few years and the property was an eyesore.

Registered skeet and trap shooting had ceased, active members an endangered species, and the club didn't have money.

A small number of concerned shooters, both skeet and trap, took command of the club and started a long term program to bring the club back to the forefront of Quebec shooting.  The club only had a small number of members and the work load on those lending a hand on the turnaround was tremendous, with many reaching into there own pockets or making donations of material and/or labor.

Members installed a third skeet field, purchased a PAT trap and voice release, purchased a modified Winchester Basket for an old style Winchester trap machine, built a five stand, repaired and replaced pads, built gun racks, rebuilt all five trap fields, rebuilt the skeet machines, repaired the club house roof, and replaced two fences.   I’m sure I missed a few areas that have been given a going over, but you get the picture.…

The club now holds both registered skeet and trap shoots.

Future projects are to replace the remaining fences, paint all building and fences, purchase additional machines for the 5-stand, and to purchase an additional PAT trap and voice release.
