A group of dedicated enthusiasts have incorporated into a new shooting club in the Central MO Ozarks. The Top of the Ozarks Shooting Facility is located north of Mansfield, MO, 35 miles east of Springfield, just north of US 60. At present, a state-of-tthe-art trap range has been completed, while a skeet range is under construction and will be finished this summer. In addition, a 50 yd pistol range and 100 yd. rifle range are in the earth-moving stage. The facility is open to the public for trap shooting on Sunday afternoons from 3 PM until dusk unless a special event is scheduled. Interested parties can contact one of the following members of the board of directors for more info:
Gary Norell, (417) 924-8852; Roddy Clark (417) 924-2782 or Bruce Prater (417) 683-3286

A shameless plug for a nice growing club and a great group of folks.

Need to update the info in the post. Due to a number of issues we didn't get as much done this summer as we had planned. Didn't get the skeet ranges completed but did get some work done on the rifle and pistol ranges. also started construction of our new building. It take a while when everything is done by volunteers with a limited budget.

We are still shooting Sunday afternoon, but are starting at 1 PM, due to the shorter winter days. Also, we will probably shut down for a couple of months after December, so be sure to call prior to coming out during the winter months.

Shootzum - appreciate the shamelss plug and we're really glad you joined the group.

Thought I'd update things a little.

The Top of the Ozarks Shooting Facility is alive and well. We are still shooting trap every Sunday, starting around 2:30 PM, except for those Sundays we have Turkey Shoots scheduled.

We currently have Turkey Shoots scheduled for:

March 29, 2009
April 25, 2009
May 17, 2009

We normally shoot both 5 clay (1 from each station) trap and splatter board at the Turkey Shoots, with an occasional Annie Oakly if folks want.

We should have the Skeet Range completed by June of this year and the new building is practically completed.

We welcome everyone who shares our love of the shooting sports.

bcpifish (now bprater due to an ISP change) may know of a motel in Mansfield. Springfield is about 40 miles west on US 60. Plenty of motels there.

If you'd please PM me when you're planning the trip, I'd sure like to meet you.

Regards,
Dave
