The 2024 trapshooting season at the St. John's Rod and Gun Club kicks off on Sunday, April 21 with the Dianne Wood Memorial Shoot.

Dianne lived in London, Ontario and sadly lost her battle with cancer on December 23, 2023. Along with husband Jim, they attended many Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Championships. We always looked forward to welcoming Dianne, husband Jim, and the many other out of province shooters that Dianne no doubt had some part in convincing to attend our shoot. 

Please join us as we remember a wonderful person and dear friend.

2024 Trapshooting Season Details

Organized trapshoots will take place on Sundays from 12 noon to 4 PM.

The cost of of clay targets are up and we will have a small price adjustment this year. The cost is $7 for a round of 25 targets if paying with cash. A 12 round trap card can be purchased for $75 and offers shooters a small break on the price of shooting.

Shooters must provide their own ammunition - 7 1/2  or 8 size shot only. Eye and ear protection is mandatory.

Recently when the snow at the club was its deepest four club members in desperation traveled to Florida to shoot at the Silver Dollar sports club.

The ranges at the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club are very busy. There are many groups training on Range C  during the workweek and club members using it if not. With increased usage, our ranges can become cluttered and messy and create a potential safety hazard. Club members spend a considerable amount of time keeping our ranges clean and if we aren’t careful conditions can deteriorate quickly. 

When using any of the ranges, please do the following before leaving the range:

- clean up when you are finished which includes: removing your used targets from the stands; picking up empty hulls/brass; removing your garbage;

- hulls go in the garbage cans, brass in the buckets provided on Range B. Please put your cardboard targets, and coroplast in the white container behind the Longbranch.  

- keep the area around the safety table(s) and gun stands clear;

- no target stands, tables or other materials are to be left forward of the shooting lines, unless it has been permanently installed by the club; and,

- in particular, for Range C, ensure that nothing is left on the Range floor forward of the 25 m signs;

These rules apply to all individual users, groups and corporate/rental users. 

Rental/corporate users can be given designated, temporary storage areas at a range by permission of the club. 

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our ranges neat and tidy and ready for the next user.

If you have any questions/concerns about range use contact us. The Range A, B, C issues and concerns contact is Evan Kearley (see contacts page).
