Welcome to the Waterford Sportsmanâ€™s Club and to the exciting sport of Trap Shooting!
A message from Janice MoermanÂ (2014/2015 Trap Chair)
On behalf of the trap section I would like to extend a warm welcome to the Waterford Sportsmanâ€™s Club. As your newly elected Trap Chair, I look forward to meeting you & introducing you to our sport. Our trap section has come a long way in the past few years & I hope to continue to move forward & improve it even more. I leave you now with a message from our past Trap Chair, Mr. Gary Seitz.
Sincerely, your Trap Chair,
"Making a Contribution!â€ťÂ Since 2011 we purchased and installed three new â€śall steel - roll topâ€ť trap houses & three brand new â€śPAT TRAPâ€ť throwing machines. The installation of this entire infrastructure project was made possible by members donating their time & manpower to make this an affordable & successful venture. It is so important that we all volunteer our services & be an active participant wherever & whenever we can to make this club a truly successful, enjoyable, & safe shooting complex for the entire family.
These new improvements along with our hosting three Registered Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) competition Trap Shoots warranted the Waterford Sportsmanâ€™s Club receiving the â€ś2010 Club of the Year Awardâ€ť from the Ontario Provincial Trapshooting Association (OPTA)- an award that is proudly displayed in your club house.
All I ask from you as a new member is to ask yourself two simple questions;
- â€śHow can I â€ścontributeâ€ť my time & effort to make my club a successâ€ť?
- â€śWhat can I do to â€ścontributeâ€ť each & every time I visit my clubâ€ť?
It can be as simple as helping out with the cleanup of the grounds & trap fields, OR filling trap houses & machines with targets, OR attending monthly meetings & volunteering your time to help the executive in the operation of the club. Every time you â€ścontributeâ€ť you help spread out the workload for everyone & also help keep our prices at affordable levels.
Finally, please do not hesitate to ask your fellow members any questions you may have (â€śquestions prevent mistakes!â€ť) regarding the club, the sport of Trap Shooting, or how you can make your â€ścontributionâ€ť to your club.
Also note that your Trap Chair, Janice Moerman, & her Co-Chair, Allan Haggith, are your voice at our monthly executive meetings so feel free to introduce yourself & share any new ideas you have to offer.
Please enjoy your new club & welcome to the Waterford Sportsman Club â€śTEAMâ€ť!
