Eagle Eye Rifle  Team

Welcome to the 2014-15 Eagle-Eye Junior Rifle Team!


All students will receive training in the use of target model .22 rim-fire rifles. There are 4 positions:  Prone, Sitting, Kneeling, and Offhand (standing).  Beginners will start with the most basic instruction and will advance at their own rate over the next 12 weeks of training.  At the end of the season they will be awarded badges according to their level of achievement.  We intend to have some competitions with other junior rifle teams, this will involve travel and parents or guardians will need to help out with the travel.  Due to the unavailability and price of .22 ammo, we will be doing more dry fire this season compared to in the past when we were very liberal with ammo. The cost of the course is $40, this covers awards, medals, and the pizza party at the end of the season.  All equipment is furnished by the Coaches.  The students just need to show up and be willing to take instruction.  We try to keep the course as fun as possible.  We take safety very seriously.  Horseplay is not tolerated.  We have 6 shooting lanes at the range, so depending on the number of students we will shoot in relays so everyone gets equal time.  While some do live fire, others will receive classroom training which is equally valuable.  We hope you have a great season.

    On December 23, 2014 the Itasca Gun Club (IGC) received a special gift donation of $5,000 from Steve Wilcox, Chairman of the Grand Rapids State Bank, to assist in the development and relocation of the Itasca Gun Club.   Mr. Wilcox stated “the importance of this step forward is for the betterment of Itasca County and the teaching of safety for our youth and hunters of the area.  The Wilcox family is dedicated to hunting and shooting sports and is pleased to help keep these traditions alive in Itasca County and northern Minnesota.”


    Joe Oliver, President of IGC, spoke of the importance of area business helping with the new development, citing how each goes hand in hand to make this endeavor come to fruition.  With the development of the new gun range, Mr. Oliver speaks highly of local businesses and club members who have given volunteer help with the relocation as well as monetary donations to allow the club to move forward. 


    Bob Ross, IGC treasurer, gave credit to the Wilcox family and Grand Rapids State Bank for their support by being an early leader to assist with loans and development of a workable financial plan for IGC, so we can relocate our shooting range and expand our capability for the shooting community.


    Anyone wanting to become a member of the Itasca Gun Club may contact:  Bob Ross @ 259- 3535 or Marty Motherway @ 326-1108, or click to go to our "Join" page.
