John Anthony Halter Shooting Sports Education Center

Announcement: Halter Center Reopens for the Summer

Beginning Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 a.m., we invite members and the general public to visit the Halter Center and take advantage of our open air shooting activities, including sporting clays, trap, skeet, five stand, archery, pistol, and more. We’ve researched and re-committed to the highest industry standards for cleanliness and safety, implementing the following measures to keep both our guests and staff safe and healthy:

• Social distancing throughout our facility and grounds

• Contactless check-in and payment

• Shooting stations (already) spaced at least six feet apart

• Frequent cleaning of high-traffic areas

• One guest per party in the lodge at a time, with expanded outdoor seating around the lodge

• Public restrooms will be open and frequently cleaned

The Halter Center is already perfectly suited to socially distanced recreation, with plenty of outdoor activities for enthusiasts of all ages. We’re so excited to reopen our beautiful facility and welcome you back in the most responsible way possible. Visit the range between June 4 and June 12 and receive 50% off your first day of shooting activities. Questions? Contact Rangemaster Bart Spieth at [email protected] or (517)-610-5593.
