Updates from the FSCA Board of Directors


Welcome to the Jacksonville Skeet and Trap Club. They are the newest member club of the Florida Sporting Clays Association. The club is located at 12125 New Berlin Road in Jacksonville. The club was established in 1936, has 10 Skeet fields, 6 trap fields, 5 Stand and has just recently put in a 15 station Sporting Clays course built by Rick Hemingway. The club is planning their first registered shoot on Saturday March 19, 2016.


FSCA is in the process of setting up a new website with updated links, calendar and many other features. Look for the new website in the near future. You should also look at the Florida Sporting Clays Facebook page as these will be linked when completed.


Elections for at large Board of Director members will be coming to the membership in the month of March and finalized at the 2016 Florida State Shoot at Ancient Oak Gun Club March 31 – April 3. The meeting will take place on Saturday April 2nd before the banquet meal. Remember to look for the ballots sometime in Mid-March.


If you haven’t signed up for the 2016 Floirda State Shoot at Ancient Oak Gun Club you need to go to Scoring Pro and get registered. The FSCA is planning to give away 4 guns in a random drawing from all of the Main Event entries. Also, each Main Event entry will receive $20 worth of tokens that can be used to reduce the entry fee, used on side games or spent with vendors on site. We are looking for this year’s state shoot to be one of the biggest ever!


February is a big month for Florida Shooters with some of the best shoots in the country. Make plans now to attend if you haven’t signed already signed up!

On a very sad note, the shooting community has lost a very dear lady in the recent passing of Patsy Welch. Patsy was the wife of Pat Welch of the Bradford Sportmen’s Farm in Graham, FL. Patsy handled the registrations for the Bradford shoots and was one of the nicest people you would every meet. She will be greatly missed.
