June 1, 2019: Trap Houses Moved to Lower Range

Silver City Clays is pleased to report that our trap houses have been successfully moved from their original location to the new Trap range below the bank. We were all very concerned the old trap houses would not survive the move, but everything went smoothly – a testament to the skill of the crane company and of the original builders!

Sadly, this does not mean we can start shooting on the new range. We are working with the RCMP to get the permits for our traps range, but until then, we still have our temporary trap house.

Stop by on Sunday to see our new traps range, and check in frequently for updates on the permitting process.
