ON top looking out into the field from the Main club house, you would be looking straight out at Bank #6, 7 and 8 are to the left of the Main club house #1 would be the to the right, now down the Hill looking from the Valley Gun club restaurant and Bar Bank #9 would be all the way to your Right then you got 10-11-12 to the left of 9 after 12 to the left is the practice traps

Go to the URL above and enter "Elysburg, Pa.", look for Monestary Road and follow it to the PSSA grounds. This is the aerial view of the PSSA. As you look down on the map; bank one is to the right and bank eight is to the left. Each bank is four traps.

At the top of the map is banks nine through twelve, bank nine is at the bottom of th line looking at the map. Again a bank is four traps.

NOTE: You can zoom in on the map for a closer look.


Check the program book for the daily use of the bank system. At one time they used the two bank, 50 targets per trap system. This has been changed to a four bank system. Again, the program book will explain the present bank system.

Al,

Pre squad if you must, but it isn’t necessary.


Elysburg is a special place. Come on out in spite of the naysayers and BS.


Anyone who loves to shoot, who loves tradition, beautiful scenery, who is not preoccupied by politics and hearsay, and is within a reasonable drive should go.


The PSSA is not perfect, nor is the Valley Gun Club, the Cardinal, Sparta, Vandalia (in the day), the **** Club--or any other for that matter.


Show up, classify, squad, pay and give it your best. That's it. The first round is on me.


Most who bitch above about the great bank conspiracy aren’t, nor never shall be champions.
