Cowboy Fast Draw

Cowboy Fast Draw begins at High Noon.

We’ll mimic the shoot outs of the 1880’s. How would you match up with Johnny Ringo? How fast are you? We shoot wax with a single action .45 at timed targets.

Guns, holsters, and wax bullets are supplied free. John West (aka “Old West”), the 2017 ‘Top Gun’ and the 2018 National Champion will host Cowboy Fast Draw at the BISC Pistol Range this Saturday, August 25th, from Noon to 2:00pm. A total blast. Wear your spurs if you got’em.

Family Youth Train for First Hunt

BISC Member Clay Duncan took advantage of the free Shotgun lessons offered at BISC to prepare his sons, Levi and Chase, for their first pheasant hunt.  After three, three hour, sessions on the BISC range with Coach Byron Bush, Levi and Clay had transformed from absolutely new shooters into extremely safe and cable operators of their new 28 Ga shotguns.  It was an absolute pleasure working with Clay, Levi, and Chase.  Their enthusiasm and interest  in the sport was inspiring! Here’s some feedback  from the hunt: 

Family Trains for First Hunt“If life is about the journey, then shooting is about the preparation for that very first hunt.  My eleven year old boys, Chase and Levi, have loved every moment of preparation from understanding velocity, gauge and shot of a shell, to stance and safely handling their guns. 

 

 – “We consider ourselves so blessed to have such an incredible shooting lodge right here on the island.”
 –  “We are especially appreciative of all the time you have so generously shared to prepare years of safe shooting ahead.  Fyi, my wife who is not a hunter… even sported some orange. 
 – “Thanks again and we look forward to shooting with you again!

 

Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner

BISC has hosted a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner event for many years. The event has been very successful focusing on seniors from Bainbridge Island but open to all. We provide local transportation to and from the dinners , free dinners and usually some take home food for friends. We need 4-6 volunteers to help with the driving and serving and cleanup. The events are on the holidays from 12:00 pm through 4:00 pm.

Most of our guests are likely to be alone on the holidays and really look forward to this event. All other venues (Church and other service organizations) are closed the day of the holiday , making ours even more valuable to our guests. Hope you can help .

Military Discounts now available – Active Duty or Retired

New Military applicants will have their Initiation Fee waived in full. A savings of $75. This change is being made to focus our attention and to show our appreciation for those who serve and the sacrifices they endure to keep Americans safe and free.

To take advantage of this change you will need to keep on thing in mind. As our Membership system does not have a way to make this discount automatic just go through the sign up process as normal (making sure your DoD ID Number is included) and then when the invoice is created you will see the normal $75 Initiation Fee included. Just ignore this amount and pay for everything listed except the $75 Fee. Then when our Membership Chairperson (Shelley) reviews and approves your Membership she will post a credit to your account and the balance will go to zero. Sorry for the extra step but this way we can make this happen.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Club!

Here’s a link to the Membership Page.
