About Blue Valley Sportsman Club:
The Blue Valley Sportsman Club was
incorporated in 1955, after several years of less formal
organization. We currently have 1 charter member still
active in the club and around 160 members.
Our range is located at Mile Post 128.1 on Colorado Hwy 9
(27 miles north of Silverthorne / 11 miles south of
Kremling). We meet the first Wed. of each month at the
range at 7 pm.
Our rifle range consists of 3 benches and back stops at
100, 200, 300, and 400 yards. We also have several steel
silhouettes at various ranges. There are 3 trap ranges, two
of which are overlaid with skeet and one overlaid with a 5
stand. Due to the layout of the new trap and skeet ranges
there are times that the longer rifle ranges will be closed
while the trap and skeet ranges are in use. The 200 yard
back stop is scheduled to be relocated further South so it
can remain open when the trap and skeet ranges are in use.
The range is not open to the public, except for our 3
scheduled shoots. Members are welcome to bring up to 2
guests as long as they accompany them. The only membership
requirement is to agree to the range rules and to keep dues
current. Dues are $50 per calendar year and are due in
January each year. There may be short periods of time when
we have to close the range when work is being done on the
The three shoots each year consist of 100 & 200 yd.
rifle events. They consist of 1 shot closest to center from
the bench. There are usually 10 to 15 shooters at each
range, shooting 10 rounds at each distance. We have not had
to limit the type of rifles and equipment used so far and
there are a variety of rifles used (usually varmint and
target rifles). The silhouette shoot is a mix of shooting
positions with varmint or hunting rifles at varmint type
targets as far out as 325 yards. Various shot gun events
are held during the shoots and a kids .22 event is also
available. Rifles and .22 ammunition are provided.
A trap league is held each Summer and consists of 28 to 30
teams. Each team shoots once a week either on Tuesday,
Wednesday, or Thursday evenings. The league lasts from 8 to
10 weeks. A skeet league may be in the future now that we
have a skeet range.
The money raised at the shoots is used to support different
youth activities such as 4-H and other community events. We
also support organizations such as CSSA, NRA, RMEF, and
