Special order pouch

Here is a picture of a new CCPRC Logo embossed pouch we can have special ordered.  Takes about two weeks once the order is placed.  We have a sample pouch at the club house for your inspection.  The large pouch will hold 50 12 gauge shells and 50 empties.  We can also order a smaller pouch that holds 25/25.  We can order in tan as shown or in a brown.  Both are divided into two sections.  The large also has a side pocket for chokes, ear plugs, etc.  Large pouch is $160 and small pouch is $110.  Both are made with premium leather and are considered to be firm.

August

Wednesday and Thursday August 22 and 23 parts of CCPRC will be temporary closed to allow a survey crew to work safely. The survey work is being done in preparation of various projects we will undertake in the future which include improving drainage for the rifle/pistol bays and for the shotgun fields as well as future berm work in the pistol/rifle area. We will also be getting elevation readings on the tops of the berms in several places so we can monitor the erosion of the berms as they age. We need to make sure they maintain appropriate safety heights.
 
On Wednesday August 22 all skeet and trap fields will be closed from 7:30 am until about 2:00 pm. There is a chance they could be closed longer, however they should be open by 5:00 pm. The sporting clay course will not be affected and will open at 10:30 am and be open to 7:00 pm on Wednesday.
 
On Thursday August 23 the rifle range and all pistol and rifle bays will be closed from 7:30 until the survey crew is finished with the work in that area of the club (hopefully by 5:00 pm). The gate to the back of the club will be turned off while the surveyorss are doing the work in the pistol/rifle areas. I hope everyone understands we can not have anyone shooting when there are surveyors walking on the ridge tops of the berms.

We are about to start the process of reclaiming the lead shot here at the club. This will mean several things. First, starting on about Monday February 5 and until the process is finished the shotgun fields and pattern board will only be open during times the clubhouse is open (normal posted hours) and second the fields will only be open when opened by a CCPRC employee. The process could take 3-4 weeks depending on weather and the contractors uninterrupted time in the field.

August 2017

 

The construction for CCPRC Sporting Clay Course has started!!

 

Pictures of our ground breaking, can be seen on our facebook page, with Texas Parks and Wildlife representative Renán Zambrano, Education & Outreach / Program Coordinator, CCPRC Board President Byron Hough, Vice President and sporting clays committee chairman Jeff Hyde, manager Craig Cook, board members Philip Guarisco and Dennis Bosley.


As noted earlier partial construction (about 75%) of this course is being made possible from sporting arms and ammunition excise taxes known as Wildlife Restoration Funds. Funds are provided by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and administered by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Also attached below is a copy of an article discussing this program.

 

Sporting Clays is the fastest growing segment in the clay target sports far outstripping skeet and trap. This course will add a segment to our club offerings that will make us the most complete club in south Texas. The closest sporting ranges are currently in San Antonio, Laredo and the Houston area. It is one of many improvements we have been able to make to our club over the last 7 years. Here is a summary of the improvements we have made at the club from 2010 through summer 2017; the what, where and how much the club has spent on capital improvements:

• $ 177,164 in General club improvements. Includes new septic systems, new patio and club house roof, ADA ramp, remodel bathrooms, new A/C, remodel kitchen, foundation work, parking lot work and road work from county road 763 to bay 16.

• $362,387 in Pistol and Rifle range improvements. Includes turning direction of rifle range higher safer berms, adding more bays (5-16), carports for all, concrete under carports on RR and bays 4-8, road base under carports 10-16, improving road into rifle range, improving drainage for all bays and rifle range, additional parking areas by each bay and parking in back for matches, repair of berms (2014) and new covered pistol building (2016).

• $99,202 in Shotgun field and equipment improvements. Includes various concrete work for sidewalks, 4 machines for 5 stand, upgrading a trap machine, 2 new and 2 used replacement skeet machines, new lights & wiring for shotgun fields, new pattern board and fencing, coin box for 5-stand, voice activation systems for 5 stand and voice activation system for a skeet field.

The new sporting clays course will cost CCPRC an estimated $115,867 after the TXPWD grant pays about 75%. This will increase the shotgun capital expenditures to $215,069 when finished.

 

Pricing and reservation policies for the sporting course will be published sometime in late September. The course should be finished in the fourth quarter depending on weather.

 

Capital Improvements 2010-2017

 

In response to a couple questions I went back into our accounting records to research what, where and how much the club has spent on capital improvements from 2010 through April 2017. 

  • $ 177,164 in General club improvements.  Includes new septic systems, new patio and club house roof, ADA ramp, remodel bathrooms, new A/C, remodel kitchen, foundation work, parking lot work and road work from county road 763 to bay 16.
  • $362,387 in Pistol and Rifle range improvements.  Includes turning direction of rifle range, adding more bays (5-16), carports for all, concrete under carports on RR and bays 4-8, road base under carports 10-16, improving road into rifle range, improving drainage for all bays and rifle range, additional parking areas by each bay and parking in back for matches, repair of berms (2014) and new covered pistol building (2016).
  • $99,202 in Shotgun field and equipment improvements.  Includes various concrete work for sidewalks, 4 machines for 5 stand, upgrading a trap machine, 2 new and 2 used replacement skeet machines, new lights & wiring for shotgun fields, new pattern board and fencing, coin box for 5-stand, voice activation systems for 5 stand and replacement voice activition system for a skeet field.

The new sporting clays course will cost CCPRC an estimated $115,867 after the TXPWD grant pays about 75%.  This will increase the shotgun capital expenditures to $215,069 when finished.

 

 

CCPRC Sporting Clays Course

Corpus Christi Pistol & Rifle Club Board of Directors and management is proud to announce we have entered into an agreement with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to build a Sporting Clays Course here at the club.  Texas Parks and Wildlife, through a federal assistance grant with the US Fish and Wildlife Service will provide about 75% of the funds ($283M) to help construct the course.  CCPRC will provide the remaining 25% plus cost of the Environmental impact Statement.  The grant process has been lengthy and very detailed with successful Environmental Assessment, Cultural and Biological Assessments being completed.  The course designer who was very helpful in the process is Heyward Cunningham of Promatic, Inc., one of the premier course designers in the world and the machines will be supplied by Promatic which are some of the best sporting clays machines on the market.  Also helpful is assisting on the grant process was Steven Kocurek of KLM which will be the main contractor for the construction phase.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Grant Coordinator Renan Zambrano also relays the TPWD excitement about the project; it will provide additional opportunities to an area of Texas that is currently under served for Sporting Clays. It will also provide additional training for new hunters under controlled live fire conditions on a greater variety of simulated game targets.

When completed the course will sit on about 45 acres, have 15 stations with 12 active at any one time, and space to move the current five stand course in the future (currently located by the skeet fields) and possibly add a second five stand course, or zzbirds or another shogun clay target game that can be decided at a later date.  We will have a good selection of target types including rabbits, teal, midis, Battue, chondel and both right and left handed standard targets, a total of 28 machines.

Sporting Clays is the fastest growing clay target shooting sport in the USA.  Adding Sporting Clays to the existing selection of offerings here at the club will make CCPRC the most complete shooting sports club south of San Antonio and it is all in one location.  Our future Sporting Clays course like all our other shotgun clay target sports will be open to the public during normal club operating hours.  We are already getting request from several fundraising groups to set dates for shoots.   It is too early in the process to take reservations for shoot dates.  The reservation policy and pricing also need to be refined and finalized prior to accepting reservations.  We will announce when we are accepting reservations for the course which we hope will be finished by the 4th quarter of 2017.  The construction of the course will involve building a cart path, building several small berms/small hills for landscaping effects, addressing drainage around and within the course, planting trees, bushes and grass, as well as building the 15 stations.  These will take several months.  We want to make sure we take the necessary time to construct the best sporting clays course we can within our budget.    Besides being open to members, their guests and the public the club will also be using the course for the annual Nueces County 4H Trap and Skeet Club shoot.  We also plan to have at least one registered NSCA/TSCA shoot on an annual basis. 

 

Attached is a first draft of the concept course used for the grant process.  The actual final course is currently being worked on by Heyward Cunningham and will resemble the concept draft, the final may have different features and features in slightly different locations than shown on the draft.

The weekend of May 12-14 we will be hosting the CC Open NSSA Skeet shoot on shotgun fields 2-5.  5 Stand will not open on Sunday 14th.
