Past WLOPA events:
A new Plate Shooting Program started this year featuring .22lr pistol/revolver at the plate shooting range located to the left of the pistol range. They held 3 events, with the last one very well attended. Contact Matt Mildrum for info: email@example.com.
Ladies Day - We held another "Ladies Day" shoot on Sept. 17th, as part of our community outreach education events. It was well attended and all the ladies who participated had the opportunity to learn gun safety and shoot pistol, rifle, and trap. Thanks to Greg Gubitosi who ran this program.
Annual Fundraiser - Breast Cancer / WLOPA Relief
Hall Renovation - We finished the hall and bathroom renovation in August.
The Annual NRA Dinner was held on March 18, 2016 at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville. WLOPA had three tables of supporters.
We held our Christmas Party on Dec. 4th and it was very well attended and all had a good time enjoying friendships and great food. Thanks to all who helped with the Christmas Party and also the Handicap Christmas Party the following week, Sat. Dec. 12th. Santa was there and entertained everyone. A special thank you to Spartan II Restaurant in Plantsville who donated their time and food for the Party. All the children and their family enjoyed the day.
