  • Announcement
    • We recently learned that the March 15, 2014 date for the State Shotgun Match coincides with the end of biker week in Daytona Beach.  Rooms may be scarce for those planning to spend the night.  The Gun club has offered there grounds for camping and RV’s. The sites are in the woods with no electrical hookups and only porta potties. There is no charge.  For more info about camping call Bill Brumley at the club.  There are  some new motels at the  I-95 Port Orange exit which is about five miles from the Gun Club. Also, the club will have some ammunition but it is highly recommended that you bring sufficient supplies to cover the four rounds of shooting.  The event will start promptly at 9:00 am. Thank you.
