Rod & Gun 2018-19 Season Recap

The Rod and Gun Club had a tremendous season with record turnouts at our newly renovated Range! 1,798 rounds were shot at the Range and several special events were held for an all-time record turnout. Our Card Sound Range is very unique in that no reservations are required. During season it is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 10am to 3pm. There are shotguns and pellet guns available to rent.  We host several family days with barbeque lunches and refreshments, and once again with record turnouts. Clay shooting incudes: Skeet, Five Stand and Wobble Traps and now a new Archery range and a pellet gun shooting range. Rod and Gun Members may host first time guests at the Range and then memberships are required to return.

Men’s night was a great evening with Chef Philippe serving Quail & Elk at the Cooking School. 145 members enjoyed storytelling and fun at its finest!

Next season our annual event will be for couples so please plan to add to your calendars as soon as the date is announced. We were oversold two years ago!

The Rod and Gun trip to Everglade city was a huge success. Members enjoyed fishing, dining and travelling together.

Our monthly Get Togethers featured our own members and their expertise as well as teams from local conservation efforts. We look forward to another season of casual evenings at the Tennis Center Card Room with interesting speakers. Please continue to bring in your catches to MarineMax for the monthly fish of the month posting and gift certificate! Dolphin is fish of the months of June to September.

With over 568 members we are in planning mode for more events and trips for next season. A big thank you to all our Members and here is to a great summer of fishing and hunting, on and off the Reef!
