Nlfg is conducting its annual Christmas season food drive. If you are planning on attending a club function, please bring a non-perishable item with you. Our Thanksgiving food drive was a huge success. Everything that was donated went to the Chapel of the Cross.

The Club office will be open Sundays from noon until 2 pm for raffle ticket sales and 2024 dues payments.

There will be a Turkey shoot Sunday, December 10th. Doors open at 8, shooting starts at 9. Breakfast will be available. The next shoot will be December 17.

The Steel challenge shoots are finished for the season. Thanks to Don Bates and his crew of helpers and all the shooters who participated. Hope to see you all next year.

NLFG hosted the first annual Veteran’s Day Garand Match on November 11, 2023. The CMP sanctioned the match, so competitors were able to earn official CMP awards according to their scores. The most important thing is that everyone had a really good time, and more people are visiting our spectacular rifle range! We had 3 non-members compete, and one additional spectator.

Here’s the Match Line up:

  • WINNER – Mike Heaberlin – 284 – 4X
  • 2nd Place – Scott Smith – 280 – 7X
  • 3rd Place – Art Karas – 263 – 4X
  • 4th Place – Anthony Shaum – 250 – 1x
  • 5th Place – Rick Walski – 243 – 1X
  • 6th Place – Jeff Cramer and Jeff Haneline tied with 227 – 1X
  • 7th Place – Brian Williams – 214 – 3X
  • 8th Place – Bradley Williams – 214 – 2X

Our next match will be the third annual WHITE DEATH MATCH! Keep your eyes peeled for that one! It’s a lot of fun.

Want to do something to help the Club out? Something that won’t cost you anything and any of you can do. Sign up a new member. If you hear someone talking about Firearms, ask them where they shoot. Tell them about our club and bring them out and give them a tour of the place. Signing up new members will help keep membership costs down. If half of our members would sign up a new member, it would really help out.

2024 Dues payments, According to NLFG bylaws article VI item 3 “member dues must be paid by December 31st for the next year.” To facilitate this, we will be accepting dues payments on Sundays during office open hours. Or you can mail your completed membership renewal form along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to the Club. Membership forms are available for downloading and printing on the website. Thank you for your continued support.

Muskrats. Are there any trappers at the Club anymore? Some members have reported several muskrat slides at the lake. If anyone is interested in trapping them, let us know. 330-832-2411.
