Clay Pigeon Shoot

From the Grand Knight...


Our annual Clay Pigeon Shoot is coming up fast on August 7th. As in years past, it will be held on a Saturday morning at the Coon Creek Hunt Club.

We have 22 Knights with family and friends signed up at the moment, we can comfortably handle about 50 or so for the event. If you plan on attending, be sure to let me know by August 1st if possible at 847-658-1568 or

This is a great morning of "busting clays" with your Brothers and friends in a safe and comfortable environment. If you haven't shot before, we will have plenty of shotguns available at all sizes. Stuart and I, along with the staff at the club, will be doing a safety talk at 8:00 am with the shoot starting around 8:30. As we did last year, the owner of the club will be giving beginners a course to learn how to enjoy shooting clays and operate a shotgun.

If you have interest, let me know, I will be sending all those folks a longer write-up the week prior.

Cost this year is the same as last year:

$8.00 per round of 25 clays (you will likely shoot both sides, so 50 clays @ $16.00)

$6.50 per box of shells (25 to a box, so if you shoot both sides, $13.00)

The speed shoot will be operating again this year, so plan on that again (it is an addicting combo shoot with a partner!).

FOID card? If you are planning bringing your own shotgun or purchasing ammo before arriving, you will need your FOID card for that. If you plan on showing up and using another's shotgun and ammo, no FOID card is needed.

Bug spray and sun screen should be in your bag.......if you bring, we will have cool, cloudy, bug free day. If you don't......

We usually order pizzas for lunch for those that stick around. The shoot is typically over by noon.

Vivat Jesus!

Jerry Ahler, Grand Knight
