CMP – Match Clinic

Please come down and join us on Saturday October 10, 2020 from 9:00 AM – Noon (weather permitting) for our monthly CMP Match Clinic.

*** This is the last match of the 2020 season, so don’t miss out! ***

These match clinics allow people the opportunity to shoot M1 Garand or AR-15 rifles in a structured but fun setting. M1 Garand or AR-15 rifles can be provided.  If you have your own favorite centerfire rifle please bring it.  This is especially encouraged in light of COVID-19.  All matches are iron sights only.

The event is conducted in a match format (5 rounds for practice, 10 rounds prone, 10 rounds sitting or kneeling, and 10 rounds standing), but the competition is secondary to the experience of firing these two iconic military firearms.

We will be practicing social distancing and disinfecting club provided rifles between shooters in order to ensure the health and safety of all.

The cost for each match is $20 for ammunition (.30-06 or .223) and there is no cost if you bring your own ammunition. Minors must have a parent or guardian present.

Come down and shoot a piece of history!

Trap Clinic

Have you heard people taking about Trap Shooting at the club and wondered what all the fuss is? Does the idea of the instant gratification from watching clays smash into pieces make you smile? Why not come out and give it a try?

On Saturday July 11 from 11AM-1:30PM, we will be conducting our a beginner trap clinic, limited to 10 students. The focus of this clinic will be to introduce the challenging game of trap to newcomers. This clinic is designed for the brand-new trap shooter and will cover the basics including the rules of the game, foot placement, hold points and the techniques necessary to break targets.

No experience is necessary, and we will have shotguns and ammunition available for use. Included in the $25 fee will be use of shotguns, ammunition, classroom instruction and 2 rounds of trap along side an experienced trap shooter acting as a coach.

Eye and ear protection can be provided, but if you have your own, you are encouraged to bring it. For more information or to sign up, please contact: firearmsafety@tewksburyrodandgun.org.

Range Availability

In the recent member survey, eleven percent of respondents wanted increased range availability. In response to this feedback, the Hi-Bore Range Officers have increased their coverage during the week. Please watch the club calendar for additional coverage for most Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings as well as all day coverage on Saturdays.

For those that would like to request a range officer’s time outside of our published times, we have created a new web page for you: http://tewksburyrodandgun.org/ro

This page can be used for either Hi-Bore or the Trap Field.

We would ask that you provide at least 3 days notice with your request, and please keep in mind requests are not guaranteed. You must get confirmation from the range chairman for your requested time.

Of course you can always call an RO from the list on the newsletter as well.

The Board of Directors will be monitoring range logs and the new request page to assess if additional actions are required to ensure our members have ample access to the range.

The BOD thanks you for taking the survey and we want you to know your feedback is appreciated and will be acted upon.

Basic Firearm Safety Class

The Tewksbury Rod & Gun Club has resumed the Massachusetts Basic Firearm Safety (BFS) Classes.  We have completed two successful classes on June 6 and 13.  While there was limited seating due to social distancing, everyone had a great time.  The BFS team is now on summer break. There is quite a long waiting list already established.  If you would like to get on the list for September, please email: firearmsafety@tewskburyrodandgun.org.
