There WILL be a Archery 3-D Prize Shoot on Saturday May 16 at 8 am.

All General Meetings will be cancelled until further notice.
The CDC has recommended that gatherings of 10 or more people should be cancelled. We will keep you posted via email when our meetings will begin again. New members will mail in their membership fee and we will mail them their membership ID and key. The Board is still trying to come up with a way to have a meeting for the new members.
We want to do everything possible to keep our members safe, so we are willingly complying with the CDC's recommendations.
The Club is always open. If you decide to visit the club, remember to keep your social distance between yourself and
IDNR News Feed Is Temporarily Down.
The IDNR news feed is usually on the right side of our website's home page but will be down until IDNR fixes the issue. Apparently their website has a Microsoft SharePoint error which they have to resolve. Due to the COVID-19 situation, IDNR staff will not be available until workers are allowed to return to work. They apologize for the inconvenience. In the mean time, I've inserted a news feed from Field and Stream & Outdoor Life Magazines.
Range Hours will be one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset. These hours will be in effect until October 1, 2020.
Please make sure that you are complying with the Rifle Range Rules. We see several signs that members and or guest are ignoring the rules.
There are targets on top of the back stops, people are shooting shotguns at the back stops for more than sighting in, used targets are not removed and brass is left on the ground. We must always make sure that no projectile leaves the range.
This includes muzzle rise when rapid firing and shooting from the hip.
We cannot let ignorance and carelessness, by a few people, cause us to loose our range.
Do not let others drive through the gate when you are going in or out of the club unless they have a current membership card. This includes the Twin Ponds club. Their members are aware of this policy so they shouldn't be offended.
The original trespassing offenders were given a Trespass Warning letter a couple of months ago but some of their associates might try to gain access.
Their goal is to close down the gun ranges in Kendall County.
Archery - All Saturdays
The 3-D event that was scheduled for April 18 has been canceled.
Only boats that are kept at the club will require B-G numbers. When you pay your dues, you will be asked (1) if you have a boat, (2) if it’s kept at the club and (3) which lake is it stored? Boat number stickers can be purchased at your local hardware store. They are the white two inch number stickers you would normally see on mailboxes or used for some homeowners for their home address.
With the boat in the upside down possition, the sticker is to be placed on the left stern area. You will probably see examples at the club of boats that already have their stickers applied.
Before Application of Sticker
- Make sure you clean the area where the number will go
- Make sure it is at least 50 degrees out or above before application
If you have any questions, please call John Schmidt (click on his name for link to committee member's phone #) one of our BG Directors & Boat Committee member.
SECURITY- Alternative for the BG Bumper Sticker
