WHAT THE 3F CLUB IS ALL ABOUT

At our 374 acre complex, 
in the Town of Lewiston, New York, we take pride in our
organized activities, which includes: shooting sports, archery,
fishing, hunting, bird watching. x-country skiing and a variety of
social events. Our facility invites you to bring your entire family to
enjoy a total outdoor experience.

Conservation ~ Conservation is a very
important part of the Three-F Club. Some of our members study birds
and waterfowl through their Spring and Fall migration. You can get an
up close and personal view of some of the most interesting birds in
the region. Caught in a mist net, data is taken and leg bands are
installed. The birds are then released for future study. ~ By planting
pine trees, wild flower and clover, we contribute to the natural
habitat. In addition, ponds have been created for nesting waterfowl.

Ponds ~ There are four ponds on our
property for your enjoyment. The largest is a 32-acre lake stocked
with Large Mouth Bass and Pan Fish All of the ponds can he used for
bird watching, duck hunting, dog training and fishing.

Pheasant Hunting [Optional Program]
~ Our Pheasant program allows members to purchase various packages of
birds, which are released for hunting. The size of the package can
vary depending on individual interest. As the Three-F Club is
non-profit, we are able to keep the cost of these packages low for our
membership.

~ The birds are released prior to the members scheduled day of
hunting. Bird releases are held on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and
Thursday Special packages can be arranged for other days. [see
pen]


Pavilion

~ A newly constructed 40 X 1 00 foot pavilion is
located adjacent to the clubhouse. It is available for large parties,
wedding receptions, company picnics and other events. [pavilion]

Shotgun ~ Shotgun shooters will enjoy our
5 skeet fields and 2 trap fields. 
Organized winter skeet leagues last 20 weeks, followed by an
awards banquet. Our 10-week summer league varies to include skeet and
trap. [skeet/trap]

Indoor Pistol Range ~ Our 50 foot range,
designed for pistol and small caliber rifles, has 5 shooting stations,
each with mechanical target transporters, making it unnecessary to
leave the shooting line to change targets. It is well ventilated and
has excellent lighting.

Outdoor Rifle & Pistol Range

~ The Club’s outdoor range is located to the west of the clubhouse and
allows for shooting for various distances, up to 200 yards. [picture]

 

Archery

~ The outdoor course rambles through pines and hardwoods. It has 40
3-D targets and 14 excelsior bales to accommodate all types of
shooting. In addition. 5 practice targets are available for general
use. During the winter months we convert the pavilion
to an insulated indoor shooting range. Range activities include, a
20-yard league and 3-D target shooting, with targets placed in a
setting of hay bales and pine trees. Truly a unique atmosphere for the
indoor shooter. Our Pro-Staff archery shooters will gladly share their
expertise to help archers, young and old improve their skills

Social Activities ~ The Three-F Club has
sponsored numerous activities including Christmas parties. dances, ice
skating. family picnics. canoe racing, wine and cheese tasting and
much more. There is truly something for everyone. [picture

RIFLE HUNTING:
NY
State Deer Hunters  
in two southern tier counties will be allowed to hunt deer with
rifles this fall. Members sighting-in their rifles on our outdoor range
should use extreme caution to ensure all rounds impact the backstop.
There have been several instances of rounds going over the backstop and
striking nearby structures. Fortunately no one has been struck, injured
or KILLED. The Board of Directors has cooperated with local authorities
regarding these incidents.  If
someone is hurt or worse, killed because of your careless shooting, you
will be prosecuted, your family will loose you to a jail term and all
the members may loose their Club – we don’t want to loose our facility
due to the carelessness of a few members. 
ONLY FIRE WELL AIMED SHOTS & BE SURE YOU’RE SHOOTING LOW
INTO THE BERM!



FRIDAY
NIGHT
DINNERS:

Stop
by the Club on Friday nites and enjoy one of the best fish fries in the
area. Other items are also available from Chef Joe’s full menu. Bring
a guest or two and support your Club!



Shortly
after the

Outdoor


Range


was re-opened new steel plates were placed on all the target frames to
identify the target with the shooting position – 1,2,3 etc. 
Doug Walck spent his time, energy and money to make these markers
and affix them to the target stands. Someone purposefully destroyed
these plates by shooting them with what appeared to be a shotgun, and
various caliber rifles. If you witness an incident, tell the person to
stop it & advise a member of the Board of Directors.
 
It’s
the actions of a few  who will end up spoiling it for the rest of
us.
