Damage to club property
On March 17th, 2015 between 10-11:30am, a silver Chevrolet HHR was in Bay 8. There were 2 white males in the bay, shooting. A member reported that after they left, he discovered that they had stuck a target on a barrel and shot at it. They also took a target stand, placed on the top of the barrel and used it to hold clay birds. They proceeded to shoot the birds and in the process, damaged the stand.
If any member knows who drives the above vehicle, please contact the Board through the website’s contact page and direct the email to Officers. Your identity will remain confidential. We take any damage to the club seriously and will take any and all actions to ensure that those responsible are held accountable and that they are punished.
Tuesday Night Practice to resume on March 17th.
Thinking of trying, IDPA, USPSA or organized shooting? We will resume the Tuesday Night Practice on March 17th. Start time will be around 4 or 4:30, if there are shooters ready to start. Cost is $5 a shooter and proceeds will go to the club for targets and pasters. Cost is for one run and if all other shooters have gone, then you can run it again. One “stage” for right now, round count about 20 rounds.
This is an excellent opportunity for those that have been interested in finding out what IDPA, USPSA or any type of organized shooting events are like, without the pressure of a match setting.
As always, we are a cold range. Firearms are not to be loaded until the command is given by the Range Officer. You will need a quality holster, one magazine pouch, belt, handgun and the appropriate magazines/speedloaders.

SCCC to again host the Indiana State USPSA Match
We are proud to announce that Silver Creek Conservation Club will once again host the Indiana USPSA Section match, titled The “Indiana 400” Match, September 11th through the 13th. SCCC held this match last year and it was a huge success. So far there are 321 registered shooters for this match and the match is still 6 months away! We will be needing volunteers to help with set up and running the match. Please remember that this match helps the club in raising funds as well as awareness to the shooting sports. Last year we had a very positive story on WDRB that was very pro-gun and presented the club in a very positive light. More info about the match can be found at http://www.uspsaindiana.org/
To all members and guests
Please remember to clean up after you are done shooting. Place all target stands and sticks at the back the bay and place any unwanted targets in the burn barrels. Vision barriers, barrels and spools are not targets and are not to be shot.
The club needs your help in keeping it clean.
Please report any unsafe behavior to any club Officer. If possible, please get a license plate number and a detailed description of the vehicle and the person or persons acting in a unsafe manner.
