Rod and Gun Road Trip

By Christine Patton

This week a dozen Rod and Gun members went up to Markham Park, a massive 600-acre park near Ft Lauderdale that has an impressive shooting academy, including skeet, trap, and a shooting range, and makes them available for private groups. The sporting clays course, run by Broward County, is more extensive than the 5-stand course at the Card Sound Sporting Range and includes 14 stations spread out through an area of Everglades forest. The Rod and Gun sportsmen traversed the course in golf carts — the favorite mode of travel for all Ocean Reefers — and were able to sample a variety of different shots.

 The visit of Rod and Gun members was organized by Carmen Sferrazza with the assistance of Cory Carr, the range officer at our Card Sound sporting rang. The group traveled the relatively short distance, spending the day at the facility and still getting home early. The experience was very successful and everyone enjoyed themselves — it will be doubtlessly repeated. If you would be interested in joining the next trip, contact and let them know.
