YCFGA was well represented at last weekend’s (Feb. 10) Goodwins Mills Fire Department Relief Association’s Annual Ice Fishing Derby on Kennebunk Pond in Lyman, ME. Some pretty nice fish were caught.

YCFGA served hot coffee FREE to derby participants and also donated $100 to the Relief Fund. Thanks to everyone who made this another successful derby! See you next year.

SAVE THE DATE:  WOMEN’S DAY AT THE RANGE – Saturday May 12 (day before Mother’s Day) – members will be needed to volunteer for this daylong event (work credit is available) so plan now to help out in May.

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.

>>>> NOTE:  Check our Facebook page  www.facebook.com/ycfga for notifications of Sunday Shoot cancellations due to weather conditions.

* Be Kind to the Target standsWith the winter snow season upon us, this is a reminder to all range shooters, please retrieve the target stands you use and place them under the range overhangs, out of the weather. This prevents the stands from being frozen in, and assists in avoiding issues or delay with snow blowing/plowing the ranges. Thanks in advance!
