Effective Saturday, May 27th we will begin observing summer hours of operation. From then until Labor Day the club house and clay fields will remain open until 7:00 P.M.
All outdoor bullet ranges will follow the DEEP Hunting and Trapping Field Guide
Sunset times are posted there for each day and these will be the times when shooting outdoors must stop.
We are seeking individuals who would like to score Trap shoots for the balance of the summer season. Individuals would be trained to score both singles and doubles. Those who work a shoot are paid $10.00 per hour and paid by check at the end of each day. The club provides lunch to scorers and typically there is a grill running all day, including breakfast. The next shoot is the Connecticut State Trap shoot (CTA) which promises to be a well attended event. The CTA is held here at HGC Friday, Saturday & Sunday 6/23, 6/24 and 6/25. Please e-mail the club or call us to help support this event!
