Welcome to the Waterford Sportsman’s Club and to the exciting sport of Trap Shooting!
A message from Janice Moerman (2014/2015 Trap Chair)
On behalf of the trap section I would like to extend a warm welcome to the Waterford Sportsman’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!” Since 2011 we purchased and installed three new “all steel - roll top” trap houses & three brand new “PAT TRAP” 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 Sportsman’s Club receiving the “2010 Club of the Year Award” 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;
- “How can I “contribute” my time & effort to make my club a success”?
- “What can I do to “contribute” each & every time I visit my club”?
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 “contribute” 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 (“questions prevent mistakes!”) regarding the club, the sport of Trap Shooting, or how you can make your “contribution” 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 “TEAM”!
