League Week 4 Results -- NOT FINAL 
Awards and any shootoffs for top 3 teams Sun 7/19
Plus, there will be two surprise awards for special accomplishments.

We had some very good scores posted this week. ICSS F&F are in first place by only 4 birds, Marlin and the Coldwells are only 6 ahead of third place Billie, Tony, Laney. What out for that team.

Due to the holiday, we will allow those teams which were unable to shoot week 4 this week to shoot next week.

Remember league is a TEAM competition with awards to each member of each of the top 3 teams.  The largest contributions come from those shooting highest over their incoming averages.

When originally opened, The Paul H "Rocky" Willmuth Shooting Sports Complex featured a 1200 square foot clubhouse, three skeet and four trap fields as well as archery fields.  We also offered two pavilions with grilling facilities.

In 2013-2014, we added a new 1200 square foot education center, a fifth trap field, and an additional pavilion. Visit our photo page to share the pride that we feel.  

We thank our sponsors:

for making this complex possible.  

The range is operated by a 5-person commission appointed by Independence County and City of Batesville officials. The range is open to the public during designated hours, but Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program participants are given priority on the range. 

During December and January we open Sunday 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. WEATHER PERMITTING.

If you want us to notify you about weather-related closings and upcoming events, send us an email and we'll be glad to add you to our mailing list.
