Kimball Rod & Gun Club will open on Sunday, April 26th from 1pm-4pm for trap and skeet shooting. Continue to distance from others 6 feet, avoid contact with others who are sick, and wash your hands frequently during this COVID outbreak. If you have any symptoms of upper respiratory illnesses like cough, fever, or sore throat, but not limited to those symptoms, please stay home. Those older than 65 years with underlying conditions should stay home and avoid situations where there is possible exposure.
The Clubhouse will be closed. There will be a window for individuals signing up to shoot and a separate line for membership sign up.
Please note, this is our normal opening day with the 18 week trap/skeet season. We will begin normal shooting hours 1pm-4pm on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays evenings from 6pm-9pm.
Memberships can be obtained at the clubhouse during these normal hours. Please print and sign waiver form that is on our website. Please bring signed waiver form to club to speed up process.
Because of issues having meetings, we will postpone trap team captains meeting. Please email us or contact Bill Liedman, 320-398-5523, to let us know if you will be having a team this year and who will be on the team.
We will once again have our 10 week season for $10. It will again be an individual league until we can get enough people to make teams. We plan on handicapping again this year and if we get enough shooters again we will have two brackets where to top shooters will be competing against each other and the newer or less experienced shooters will be shooting against each other. Your 10 rounds will need to be shot some time during 18 week trap season. Any rounds after the trap season closes will not be scored. We will have a skeet league signup sheet available with the people running the clubhouse.
Stay tuned to any changes as they arise. Our facebook page will have the most up to date information.

Every year Meeker Cooperative raises money for their grant fund, Operation Round Up. These funds are received by members rounding up their monthly electrical bills and employees rounding down their monthly paychecks. The spare change is placed in a trust fund and awarded to various local community organizations and projects. This program is great because it is local dollars going to local organizations!
The KHS Trap Team and Kimball Rod and Gun Club applied for this grant to get additional funds to help purchase additional supplies needed for the team. This includes eye protection, ear protection, shooting pouches, ammo, etc.
Our Team received a $1500 grant from this program! A big "Thank You" goes to this great program and Meeker Cooperative.
We appreciate being sponsored in part with a grant from the Meeker Cooperative Electric Trust!

Kimball Rod and Gun Club Receives over $8500 in NRA GRANT
The NRA Foundation holds their own raffles every year to help raise money for clubs like ours. It is local dollars that were donated to them and returned back to local organizations. The NRA Foundation donated $4500 to purchase a new clay target thrower and also donated a Promatic Thrower to the Kimball Rod and Gun Club. We just finished our Youth/Education Facility and are in the process of building three new trap fields with all new throwers. We needed trap improvements to support our rising number of youth shooters like our local Kimball High School Trap Team. We would like to give a big “THANK YOU” to the NRA Foundation and their generous donation.

High School Clay Target League is the fastest growing High School sport across the country. We are pleased to announce that the Kimball Area High School will be a participating school in the Spring of 2014. We are very excited for this new program!
Are goal is to build more trap houses and purchase new throwers to accomodate the extra youth shooters that we will be getting next spring. To do so we offer raffles to help raise money to build and purchase these new houses and throwers.
More information to follow in the near future. Any questions please contact the Kimball Area High School activities director, Bruce Holmseth, at 398-7700 ext 311.
