July 8 Program and Meeting 7:00 PM
Meeting and Program at Sportsman’s Acres with a short business meeting and discussion of upcoming activities and projects.  

The program for the evening will be Larry George and Mike Johnson talking about the Kansas High School Clays Trap League and their spring season and state tournament.   
This is the 4th year of the program and it has grown to over 70 schools with over 1800 student participants across the state this year.   

This program partners local volunteers, ranges, sponsors, and schools to provide safe, fun, and competitive shooting sports alternatives for Kansas kids.   GCF&GA has sponsored and coached the Chapman Schools team for the last 2 years, which has developed some top shooters in the state. Targets are shot each week during the spring league and scores are posted to the League website for virtual competition with schools that have similar team size.   
No travel to other schools or ranges is required until the state tournament which is held at the KTA trap park near Wichita.  The state tournament has grown to 2 days, with over 600 kids competing on the 1st day.  This should be an interesting and informative program. 
Come on out and bring your friends!!

April Annual Highway Cleanup and Program Open to the Public

posted Apr 3, 2019, 4:05 PM by Sportsmans Acres   [ updated Apr 3, 2019, 4:42 PM ]

The April Member Meeting will start at 6:00 pm on Monday 8 April, with our semi-annual highway, clean up. For many years GCF&GA has cleaned up 2 miles of K -244 plus the K-244 Spur. Were always short on people participating in this so we havent been able to do a thorough clean-up as we should. So if youre a member or not and would like to help with an easy project come on out. It is great exercise and makes the roads prettier!!! We have plenty of blue bags and orange vests and with lots of help, the task should only take 30-40 minutes.

There will be a light supper served after everyone comes back from the pick-up and the meeting will start at 7:00 pm. The program for the evening will be Tyson Seirer, Director of Field Operations at Ringneck Ranch near Tipton, Kansas talking about Long Range Shooting”. Tyson helps operate the Ranchs newly developed ranges which feature targets from 100 to 1300 yards. They also offer an Extreme Long Range experience with target distances out to 2000 yards. Their ranges offer a challenging mix of distance and targets and there are several formal competitions scheduled for 2019. Long Range Shooting training classes are also available. Tyson will talk about the range setup, long-range guns, and other equipment, and procedures for hitting targets in the next

county. This should be a very informative program about a currently popular shooting sport. Come on out and bring your friends!!

Wildgame Potluck

February Member Meeting & Program Potluck Mon Feb 11, 2019

This will be our annual Wild Game Feed and eating will start at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, 11 Feb at Sportsman's Acres.  
Members and guests should bring their favorite wild game dish or other meat dishes along with a side dish or dessert.  
Table service and drinks will be provided.

The business meeting will start at 7:00 pm followed by the program.

The program scheduled for the evening is GCF&G member Matthew J. Olson speaking on "Writing about Hunting". 
Matthew published his first book in 2014, Shorts, and never stopped writing. He began writing short stories as a way to get attention to his novels. He found some success in these stories, so he published another collection in 2015, Dark Matter. 2016 saw the release of two novels, Alien Fear and Gun Smuggler's Tale. Tech Fear, the sequel to Alien Fear, came out in 2017.

Should be an interesting and different program.
