Thunder Bay Benchrest Club Goals
There is a strong member ethic to promote the rifle benchrest portion of the target shooting sports. Consequently any new member can look forward to learning the technical skills from some of the best shooters locally. And hopefully they too will later pass on their new precision skills to other learning shooters.
Thunder Bay Benchrest Club (TBBC) is a member club under the umbrella of the Thunder Bay District Fish & Game Association (TBDF&GA). : You can read about TBDF&GA on their website.
Our ranges are located in the City at 260 Pento Road (off Government Road near Dawson Road). The facilities are secured by TBDF&GA member-only key access.
Every member of TBBC must first be a current paid up member of Thunder Bay District Fish & Game Association, holding at least a general membership there.
At this time there is a fee of $5.00 to join TBBC. (It used to be $5.05 but Barry got tired of making change.) This annual fee is for our incidental expenses and may be used in future to cover our club's specific events.
