A Successful Open House
Thank you to all who attended, participated in, and
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
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!
