Event update - September/October 2012

It seems like Summer is over just as it began but the events keep coming at the Kent Rod & Gun Club!
August was very busy at our club and everyone who attended enjoyed our Family BBQ on August 4th.  Photos from this event are posted on our "Random Shots" page, hop over and take a look!
Our team of Certified NRA Instructors gave another Pistol Safety Course on Sunday, August 19th and will be preparing to schedule another before year's end.  Our very own "Team Pistol Safety" received excellent evaluations by course attendees who passed their examinations with the highest marks.  Some took the course for upgrades, others in preparation for their first-time pistol licenses.  Keep the KR&G in mind for anyone needing to take this course and have them contact us so that we can add them to our next class roster.
  • General Membership Meeting-Friday, September 7th at 8 p.m.
  •  Annual Family Camp-out on Saturday, September 15th
This is always a fun night for everyone with lots of laughter around a roaring bonfire and kids running all over decked-out with glow-sticks.  Members and friends are invited to come and pitch tents late** in the afternoon plus bring along something tasty to eat or toss on our grill to share.  The kids always enjoy making S'mores and other goodies before curfew hits and everyone heads into their tents for (hopefully) a restful nights sleep.
Breakfast will be served early the next morning to all the campers.  
**Members are reminded that a Bow Hunter Safety Course will be taking place on September 8th....again, please do not set up tents until late in the afternoon. 
We ask that everyone who plans on camping to please drop us an e-mail at:
  • Bow Hunter Safety Course - Saturday, September 8th
Space is filling-up fast, for this course as well as the Hunter Safety Course (gun) on Thursday, October 25th and Saturday, October 27th.
To register, please contact Course Instructor Jerry Meenan at:  914-552-0323 or by e-mail at:

  • Club Swap Meet - Friday, October 5th
Our regular General Membership Meeting will start at 7 p.m. and everyone is invited to bring along anything they would like to swap or sell.  Club business will be discussed at 8 p.m. and members can return to browse some great deals.

  • Annual Turkey Shoot - Sunday, October 7th
A favorite yearly event at our club is our Turkey Shoot.  Everyone is welcome, members, family and friends.   We start at 10 a.m., break for a hearty Sportsman's Lunch (Venison Chili and more) around noon then return for more shooting.  A great day to rack-up bragging rights!  More details will be posted as we get closer to the date.  Feel free to contact event Chairman....John Sparano at: for more info.

Summer Clean-up

Sunday, July 29th was a busy and very productive day at the Kent Rod & Gun as several members worked on various projects at our club.

Kevin Whittaker designed and started building a new Shooting Station at our front range a few days ago; a few helping hands brought it closer to being finished.

 Kevin made even more progress on July 31st when he finished putting up the walls.   

Don Hopko installed some outdoor carpeting down on our back range shooting stations while John Geist and Erik Lawton did some pretty impressive tree-trimming

In addition to all our members who pitched-in for the day, and who will be thanked again at our next meeting (in case anyone has been overlooked), a big shout-out to:
