Shooting and camaraderie!

“My favoriate memory of the club is shooting trap and skeet for the first time… I attend the gatherings and events. This says a lot about being made welcome as a faculty member by the students and leaders and about how fun the club is. It is awesome to be able to meet and discuss things with students from other majors with a common interest.”
-Shaun “Doc” Ramsey, Professor

Stress relief.

“What is my favorite aspect of the club? The close knit community aspect of club despite having such a wide array of people. This club gave me an outlet from the stress of classes and work, and I met people I would have never met otherwise that have now become my best friends.”
-Devin Hayward, 2014

We are amazing.

“That everyone is welcome, from the city slicker who has never been around a gun to those in 4H who have been shooting their whole lives and everyone gets along like we have known each other forever. We are amazing. Watching how the club has grown in the short time I’ve been a part of it. First semester of my freshman year (2010) it was basically a bunch of people who get together Wed or Thurs night and shoot stuff, and that seemed to be pretty much it with the exception of one or two sporting clay trips. Now for the coming year, we have planned not only those weekly shoots and more sporting clay trips, but big fundraisers, attending about 5 competition shoots, co-hosting our own competition shoot with UMD, and even trying to get to Nationals! We have received the biggest budget in the Trap and Skeet Club’s history, so we will be able to expand even more. What was once a small little club has transformed into a powerful group of college kids who have found something fun and safe to do outside of class that has an impact not only on the college but the surrounding community. If you really take a close look at our club, you will quickly see what a great thing we have going now, and we’re not done climbing yet.”
