Women’s Inclusion Committee Events:

An “Introduction to Falling Plates” session will be held on Saturday October 28th from 10-12 on the pistol range.  All members who have not joined or participated in a prior plate shoot and curious about how one works are encouraged to attend  We will explain how the event is run, safety expectations, what to do when you arrive and demonstrate the shoot.  Remaining time will be an opportunity to practice with coaching from a few experienced plate shooters. If you would like more information please contact Deb at ycfga.womens@gmail.com  or 207-229-9403.  We do need one or two more volunteers for this, so if you are interested and/or need volunteer hours please let Deb know.

!!! Anyone know where we can get an ADA Door Closure?  As part of our lodge update plan we’re looking to make the main lodge door ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant, to do so we need an ADA Door Closure unit and an experienced installer to perform the work.  If you have any information regarding this request please contact Jim Thyng at  swanpond@roadrunner.com or 207-5908261. 

2018 YCFGA Officer Elections – It’s that time of the year to start thinking about election of club officers at our annual meeting on January 25, 2018. Officer positions up for election are: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and sergeant at arms.  Mike Doherty, our current president, has stated he will not be seeking re-election and will not accept if nominated. After four terms Mike has requested a rest, and we can’t blame him. Thanks Mike for all you do! All members are strongly encouraged to consider becoming a club officer, position descriptions and responsibilities are published in our by-laws, take a look: http://ycfga.org/bylaws

Skeet, Trap, and Shotgun:  Weekly shoots continue on Sunday’s beginning at “high” Noon. SKEET FIELD #2 (closest to the pistol range and road) continues to be CLOSED for general use until further notice. Please use only the Trap Field (the furthest field from the gate) for all non-scheduled use. This includes patterning, use of your own clay thrower, etc.  The Skeet Field (closest to the gate) will only be used on Sundays during regularly scheduled shoots under the direction of the Skeet Range (Shotgun) Chairs and Co-chairs.

Brass Cartridge – Pistol & Rifle: Weekly shoots continue year round, check out our website or Facebook page for details. Participant fee is $5 per shooter. The latest schedule is below.


2018 MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL INFORMATION:  Where has the time gone, membership renewal season is already upon us beginning October 1. As stated throughout all last year via our newsletters and meetings, membership renewal forms will not be mailed out as they ARE AVAILABLE on our website: http://ycfga.org/membership and in the lodge and President’s Club buildings For your convenience, the 2018 Renewal from is included within this note.

To obtain the renewal form from our website, similar to prior years, your ‘full’ 2017 YCFGA gate pass-code (i.e. YY-XXXX (check your badge sticker)) is the password and will be needed to access the online form, which can then be downloaded, printed, completed and mailed, or hand delivered to Dan Strycharz (membership chairman) at any of the monthly general meetings. Acceptable payment can be made via cash, check, and money order (made out to: YCFGA).  Upon renewal, you will be sent your 2018 sticker with new lock combination to affix to your ID badge – it will come in a small envelope with a return address from YCFGA, generally a couple weeks after receiving your renewal form. All renewing members are requested to return a completed renewal form, purpose being to ensure our records are accurate with: name, address, phone, and especially email address.  

Mail completed renewal forms to:
