It was a great night of fun for the Golden and District Rod and Gun Club who gathered for the group’s annual banquet on March 23.

It was a great night of fun for the members of the Golden and District Rod and Gun Club who gathered for the group’s annual banquet on March 23.

President of the club, John Stewart, explained the past year has been a great one for the group.

“We have finished the project down at the club on time and on budget. It was completed just before the snow came at the end of October. Everything is looking really good for this year. We have managed to get extra work done and have built a roadway part way to the shooting site which was a bonus,” he said.

Stewart added that he has noticed an increase in people coming to the range over the past year.

“We have been carrying on with the clay pigeon shooting down there and have had good numbers. The gun club is being used at least 50 to 60 per cent more than it ever used to be as far as I can tell,” he said. “People see people down there and they want to come out to take part. People are shooting long rifles and pistols and things that they like to do.”

Stewart went on and explained why he felt the membership was a great deal.

“It is an excellent time to be a member of the club. For $40 for our membership, you get a key to the gate and you can go down there 365 days of the year between basically 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. It is an incredible deal.”

He also wanted to thank all of the sponsors have given generously to the club over the past year.
