SCC Facilities

The Stoughton Conservation Club takes a great deal of pride in providing state of the art facilities for its members with continual improvements to better serve the member activities and interests.


Clubhouses
SCC has two main multi-purpose buildings. One building (The New Clubhouse) serves as the Indoor Archery range and Trap - Skeet club house and the second building (The Old Clubhouse) serves as the Indoor Pistol range and Outdoor Archery club house. The Clubhouses are where General Membership Meetings, Board Meetings, New-Member Orientations and activities like Hunter Safety, etc... take place.



Members may rent the Clubhouse(s) for their personal events. To reserve a club facility, fill out the facilities rental agreement and send it to the Buildings & Ground Chair, with the required rental fee. This should be done well in advance of the date you are requesting. Rental agreements can be found at either clubhouse or on the club website. Once the rental agreement and rental fee are received by the Buildings and Grounds Chair, it will be brought to the attention of the Board at a monthly Board meeting. If it does not conflict with any regular or scheduled Club events (see Event Calendar) and you are a member in good standing, the request will probably go through. The Buildings & Ground Chair will notify you and add it to the event calendar.

In the Main Rooms of each respective Clubhouse there are a few exhibit cases, displaying trophies, souvenirs, animal & fish mounts, as well as some memorabilia from The Clubs past, including is a collection of Club membership buttons going way back.

Indoor Archery Range
The Indoor Archery Range is a separate room in the New Clubhouse and hosts the Indoor Archery League, Youth Archery, and various Indoor Archery Tournament events, including the popular Tri-Star Tournament. The Archery Range has 20 lanes, two bow presses, a bow scale and paper tuning equipment for Club members use. It is open 24/7, unless a Club or private event is scheduled for its use, in which case it is closed. Check the Club Calendar prior to coming down to use the range.

Indoor Pistol Range
The Indoor Pistol Range is located in the 984 Collins Rd. Clubhouse and is host to the Pistol Leagues (.22 and Centerfire). We have 9 firing points with a retrievable target system and excellent lighting. It is open to Club members from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Pistol leagues are held in the evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays of the fall and winter months. Contact scc.rangemaster@gmail.com with any questions.

Jacketed bullets are now allowed in the Indoor Range with some exceptions see rules for details.


Outdoor Archery Ranges
For Outdoor Archery, there are three different shooting areas to accommodate member interest; a field tip range, a sand bunker range for the broadhead shooters and an Outdoor Woods Walk range with tree stands and stations to give archers a real life hunting experience. These ranges are located outside of the Old Clubhouse. The Woods Walk course also hosts all of the 3D-Shoots and Broadhead Archery tournaments that SCC hosts.



Rifle Range
SCC has three outdoor ranges which were recently improved for additional safety and comfort. There are 25, 50, 100 yard ranges. The ranges are designed for members to safely shoot their firearms and enjoy the shooting experience. The firearm range also hosts the Site-in Clinic SCC runs prior to the deer-gun season. Hours for the rifle range are Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to Sunset; Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. These hours are strictly enforced. Ranges may be closed for improvements or other work details.

Trap and Skeet Facilities
SCC has four newly designed state of the art trap houses, two of which serve as combination trap/skeet fields. The trap/skeet fields are located outside the New Clubhouse and host the always popular the Trap and Skeet leagues. On most Sunday mornings there is open trap and skeet to offered to both members and non-members for a nominal fee. (Please check the event calendar).

Volunteers
SCC relies solely on member volunteers to maintain and improve the facilities we use. Please be respectful and clean up after yourselves as you use the various ranges and facilities. This is common sense but worth mentioning. While there isn’t a work requirement for club members, volunteers are always needed for various club events and activities. Please volunteer to help out. After all, it is your club! Thank You.

Remember, Be Safe and Enjoy Your time at the Club!

Outdoor Firearm Range

The Club has three outdoor firearm ranges: A 25-yard range, a 50-yard range and a 100-yard range. They are found on Collins Road behind an outer locked gate (Club members are given the combination) and an internal electronic access door. Each range is covered with its own shelter providing the shooter with protection from the elements and sound suppression. Within each shelter you will find shooting benches and shooting rests. The rests are chained to the benches and are often found on the shelf underneath the bench.

The Four Basic Rules of Firearm Safety always apply to Our Ranges.
1) Treat every gun as though it is loaded.
2) Always point the muzzle in a safe direction.
3) Be sure of your target and beyond.
4) Keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to shoot.

RANGE HOURS ARE STRICTLY ENFORCED – KNOW THEM!

Monday through Friday: 8am to Sunset

Saturday: 8am to 5pm

Sunday: 8am to 3pm



RANGE RULES


Rule #1: VIOLATING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING RULES CAN COST YOU YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR LIFE. No refund, no discussion, no second chance, no nothing. If you break any of these rules, you are acting in an unsafe manner. This will not be tolerated.

Rule #2: All shooting must be done from within the Shelters Under no circumstances will you shot from in front of the Benches.

Rule #3: Paper Targets Only “PAPER TARGETS ONLY” means no junk targets. No golf balls, water bottles, milk jugs, cans, bottles, pieces of wood, light bulbs or anything else that is not a paper target. IF IT’S NOT A PAPER TARGET, YOU CANNOT USE IT.

Rule #4: Targets must be inside the Impact Baffles, between the cement walls and under the cement roof. Absolutely no targets or stands are allowed between the shelters and impact baffles. Attach your paper targets to the plastic snow fence using clothes pins (which are provided). There is a wire holding up the snow fence. Do not hang your targets from this wire.

Rule #5: You may use your own target stand, but it must be inside the impact baffle and not support by any of the old tires.

Rule #6: No rapid fire (Definition: 5 rounds in 10 seconds or faster.) Our goal is “safe and fun shooting.” If you are not in control of your aim because you’re shooting too fast, you may be having fun, but you are not being safe.

Rule #7: Members and guests only. (One guest per member). The immediate family of club members (spouses and children) are members, but the card-holding member must be present. You may not drop your kids off; as the card-holder, you must be present. You are responsible for your guests’ and family’s actions.

Rule #8: Children must be supervised at all times. “Supervised” means you are close enough to them to prevent unsafe behavior or accidents, not sitting in the car listening to the game.

Rule #9: Membership card must be on hand. This is the printed one with your name on it. The access card is not proof of current membership. You must have it available if anyone asks for it. Any member of SCC is allowed to ask anyone for proof of membership.

Rule #10: Respect the Range. Anyone purposely damaging the range or equipment or acting in an unsafe manner may be banned from The Club for life.

Rule #11: No foul play. Just as at any range, no running, rough-housing, practical jokes or any other unruly behavior.

Rule #12: Respect the 45-minute time limit. Here’s how this works. Say all the benches in the 100-yard range shelter are occupied and another person comes in looking to shoot. The person who has been at the 100- yard range LONGEST (the first ones there) will indicate to the new party who they are, and will surrender their bench to the new party in 45 more minutes or less. If another party arrives, the person who has been there the second longest will indicate to the new party who they are and surrender their bench to the new party in 45 minutes or less. So on and so forth. Remember, courtesy breeds courtesy.

Rule #13: Clean up your debris before leaving If you shredded your paper target(s), please clean up the shreds.

Rule #14: Be Certain the Entry Door and Outside Gate are Locked When Leaving.

Rule #15: Re-read rule number 1. Not only must we obey these rules, but we must make sure others obey them as well. If you see unsafe behavior or rule violations, you are obligated as a Club member to remind the violators of the rules. If you are uncomfortable doing so, gather all the information you can (including description of the violators and their violations, date and time, their car, license plate and anything else) to help the Board in disciplinary actions. We will also post Board Member phone numbers so you can reach us.

SHOOT SAFE, SHOOT STRAIGHT AND SHOOT OFTEN

Reservation Procedure

The Club and its facilities are for the members’ use, both for Club activities as well as for private functions. Any member in good standing for at least one year may request use of any Club facility, from the Clubhouse to the Gazebo and other parts of the grounds. To reserve any facility exclusively for your activity, the member in good standing must submit that request it through the Buildings & Ground Chair. Check your newsletter for his name and number.

If approved (and it usually is), it will be noted in the Board records, then posted on the Clubhouse calendar.

The pdf forms below are the contracts required to rent the facilities. Please print them out, fill them out and submit them to the Buildings & Ground Chair as your official request.
