Lake Oconee Shooting Club closing

The Lake Oconee Shooting Club Inc. will be closing its doors effective Dec. 20.

Lake Oconee Shooting Club’s Payne Hughes recently explained the closure: “After numerous attempts to keep the business open through selling the business to outside parties, I have come to the realization that I must close the business. The economy both nationally and locally do not hold out much encouragement of a speedy recovery.”

In advance of the closing, the club will still host upcoming events: Nov. 14, annual Elks Club Turkey Shoot; Nov. 17, Lake Oconee Ducks Unlimited Annual Banquet; and Dec. 12 Annual Elks Club Turkey Shoot.

Hughes said: “In the time remaining time we will continue to honor all current discount rates for all shooting. All inventory and equipment must be sold and advertising will begin immediately. First come first serve for great deals while inventory lasts. Inventory of rental guns will go on sale immediately.”
