Palatka Skeet Club Visit

We dropped into the Palatka Skeet Club and shot a few rounds.


65 degrees with the sun in and out most of the afternoon.

We didn't talk to one person who was born in Florida, everyone we had a few words with were from New York.  One couple that I have run into a few times at sporting clays courses in both New York and Florida had just purchased a home in Florida and becoming residents.

I watched a gentlemen shoot a couple of rounds using a wireless voice release Clay Delay. The receiver for the device plugs in where you would normally plug in the cord.  You carry a small transmitter with lapel microphone.  I went over and we spoke for a bit.  He said he was pleased with it's operation and had not experienced any problems. 

The wireless version goes for $369 and well worth the investment.  A wired version is available.  Also, available for the other disciplines. 

The club always seems to have a project on-going or getting ready to start. Metal sheeting for the  skeet house roofs is the next planned project. 

The club does have one trap house but I was told it was not in operation.

Members shoot for $5, non-members $7.
