Lake County Sportsman Club set to reveal upcoming plans

Greg Nichols Jr. is president of the Lake County Sportsman Club.

BALDWIN — It’s winter time which means a break in the action for the Lake County Sportsman Club at its clubground site.

It’s been a busy year for president Greg Nichols Jr. and his club, who successfully put in pistol and rifle ranges.

“There’s not much going on right now,” Nichols said. “We pretty much shut it down for the season.”

When the weather allows it, the club will start work on spring and summer activities.

“Our spring and summer goals are to get our trap and skeet changes up and running and getting those done,” Nichols said. “Those are 2018 goals.”

The 2017 season was a productive one for the club. Successful fund-raisers were on the docket

“We had a lot of progress,” Nichols said. “We had successes with our rifle and pistol range and our community days and all that stuff.”

Nichols said a committee has been established for the club’s 1-, 3- and 5-year plans. A plan for some type of indoor structure could be included.

“They’ll be working on that the rest of this month,” he said. “They should have that coming up for our January meeting.”

The club still meets once a month in the Masonic Lodge Building on Michigan Ave. in Baldwin, next door to Pattie Drug Store.
