    More than 20 years ago a friend of my father gave me a patch which said, "Bergen Beach Gun Club". In the center of the patch it says, "Established 1895".

    He told me that the club was located in Brooklyn NY at the eastern end of Avenuwe "U". They shot trap over a salt water arm of Jamaica Bay called Paerdegat Basin. Today this is the site of the Hudson River Yacht Club.

    Does anyone have any knowledge of this club?

    A good old friend of mine was the last costodin of the Bergen Beach Gun Coub, He gave me a big trophy from there to give to the Hall of Fame. You can see it there at the base of the stairs going up tp meuseam. His name was Lynn Hunt, Too bad Dick Baldwin has passed away as he also knew Lynn and his farther must of shot there. Thats about all I know of the Bergen Brach Club.
