Civilian Marksmanship Program For Junior Shooters

Due to Covid 19, this program will need to be modified to meet all requirements in order to happen this year.  Please stay tuned for more information.  If you are a current shooter we will be notifying you of the status of the program prior to Oct 5, 2020.

October – End of March, Every Monday at 6:00 PM

The CMP Junior Rifle program starts in October and continues through the end of March one night every week. Youngsters ages 10 through 20 are eligible to participate. Certified instructors teach gun safety (with emphasis!) and rifle marksmanship on the indoor range. The juniors shoot the NRA three position rifle course. Ear protection, eye protection, .22 target rifles, ammunition, targets, mats, shooting coats, and spotting scopes are provided at no charge. At the end of the season a dinner is held and awards are presented to the juniors. Juniors do not need to be club member’s children.

Hunter Safety Education

Hunters Safety classes are held twice each year.  Check the clubs online calendar for dates.

Pre-registration is mandatory.  Call Jim Monforton 989-619-9393 to pre-register or  pre-register Friday the day before the class  from      6 pm-8 pm at the club.  Space is limited and pre-registration is needed to insure a spot in the class.  Classes are open to all ages 10 years old and younger must be accompanied by parent for the class.  A safe hunters patch will be made available. Those that have not pre-registered will be put on a waiting list, as the seating space is limited.

Free Ice Fishing Derby

February Each Year

In February a free Ice Fishing Derby for children is held on Otsego Lake.  Tackle and bait are furnished. Volunteer club members bore the holes. All you need to bring are children. Hot chocolate is available at the lake. A free lunch is served at the clubhouse.  Prizes are given for the first fish caught; the biggest fish caught, and the most fish caught. Then a drawing is held for the children. Every child gets a prize. This is open to the public. Chairman is Jim Monforton  989-619-9393
