Crean Hill Gun Club

Serving the Sport Shooters of the District of Sudbury Since 1965

A Successful Open House


Thank you to all who attended, participated in, and 


worked at 


the Crean Hill Gun Club Open House on 


January 17, 2015.


It was a chilly but pleasant day and our visitors filled the


club house meeting room in the morning.



Many thanks to the members of the 


Sudbury District Black Powder Association for attending


and allowing us all to see a large collection of unique


 firearms.  (See pictures below)



Our thanks to Rob Boyer for the well-organized lecture


about black powder firearms and the history of firearms


development and to Trevor Wiese for his informative 


discussion about in-line black powder shooting.


Many visitors took to the range to try out some of the


very interesting firearms provided by the


Sudbury District Black Powder Association.



The day was broken up by lunch, once again 


prepared by Chef Valerie Walker 


(ready to take home two black powder firearms, left)


who cooked up a 12 


quart batch of terrific chilli, 


most of which was gone by 1:00.



Several of our members jumped in with contributions for


coffee, soft drinks, snacks and lunch including 


Jack Rivet, Vance McAfee, Trevor Wiese, 


Chris Caron & Albert Bower.



Following lunch, Cowboy Action Match Director


Phil Bertrand


provided a brief lecture about cowboy action shooting 


followed by a demonstration on the indoor range in 


which several visitors and members participated.


Thank you Phil for sharing your knowledge & skill.



Following the cowboy action fun, 


Deputy Match Director Chris Caron


set up a terrific IPSC match.


Match Director Len Walker provided a short


introduction into IPSC shooting.


8 shooters participated in the match which several 


spectators stayed to watch.



Our open house was so successful that it is likely this 


will be an annual event.


Thanks to all who attended!
