COVID-19 Updates and Schedule
Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we continue to work on the 2020 schedule in light of the ongoing pandemic situation. We are continuing to try to reschedule our events in hopes that circumstances will improve at a later date and we will be able to continue to enjoy the outdoors together. Please note that we may have to continue to modify our events schedule as the situation develops. We would prefer to reschedule as time goes on and avoid cancelling events whenever possible. It has certainly been an unusual year so far, but we are optimistic and hopeful that we will be able to come together later in the year.

Can't wait to see you again!

There are five professional trap houses at Swift Ponds to shoot from! We will have range approved shotgun shells and shotguns.

There will be equipment available for each of the activities, but please feel free to bring your own fishing equipment and shotgun.

Lunch and soft drinks will be provided. Alcohol beverages are prohibited!

We will have on hand the Outdoor Buddies shuttle bus, track chairs, Bad Boy Buggy, Arctic Cat UTV, and ATV with go-getter to help those who need assistance in getting to the different activities.
