Walter (Jim) Henion, 1934 - 2020

   Crum Elbow Sportsmen's Association has lost another life member. Jim was a major contributor to club operations and his presence will be missed. Click here for details.

Special Notice

Charlie Conger, a long time member of the shooting community and frequent guest at our 5-stand Friday events here at Crum Elbow, lost his home this past week in a fire. He and his wife are fine, but they lost everything including 2 dogs in that blaze. What they need most right now is money to replace things the insurance won't cover... any amount will help. If you can help Charlie out, click this link and contribute to his Go Fund Me. If you would rather provide cash or contribute another way, please contact Bob Ellsworth.
The site to contribute is found here >>

Also, Mid-Hudson Sporting is having a shoot with proceeds going to the Conger family. Click here for details.
