    Hello:
    Years ago, here in Wisconsin I purchased a small gun club directory in a red paper back book format. I purchased it from an area gun club for a minimal amount. It came in handy when shooting tournaments through out the state. It had the address and phone number of each club, along with the managers name, # of traps as well as directions on how to get to each particular club from different directions.

    It even mentioned if you were able to purchase food at each particular club. Does anyone know if this is still being offered here in Wisconsin?

    Does your particular state offer something similar for shooters to place in their shell bag, as it was really handy especially if you were going to shoot at a new club that you had never shot at before.

    It was very handy as it told you a lot about the club you would be shooting at.

    And that desired info is not as available as would have been compiled in such a booklet.

    Like mentioned above we now have the internet. Get a smartphone and you can look up all the info you want until your fingers hurt.
