Much in Cape Elizabeth has changed since 1954, when the Spurwink Rod and Gun Club was founded. The town has changed in land use, demographics, and population; but what has not changed is the underlying desire of the men who founded the club… Read full article.
Today, the officials from the Town of Cape Elizabeth lifted the firing ban that was imposed on us on July 24th. Therefore, we now have a license to use our 25-yard range.
Tomorrow, December 19th, we will be painting and doing cosmetic work. The range will not be open. Please come down if you want to help out.
On Sunday, we will have a soft opening for select members. If you were a financial contributor (or plan on giving on Sunday), or you worked on the range or you are an officer of the club, please join us anytime between the hours of 12pm and 3:30pm.
On Monday, we are open to the general membership.
We want to thank you, our members, for your ongoing passionate support. Without you, this never would have been possible.
Spurwink Rod & Gun Club members discovered a large hive containing thousands of honeybees on its shooting range a couple weeks ago, and on Sept. 2 they hired an expert beekeeper and beehive remover to take care of the problem. Read full article
UPDATE: OCTOBER 11, 2015
We are approximately $5000 short for funds needed for the 25 yard range. We discontinued our GoFundMe account because they take out a commission.
Donations can be sent to:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
We are The Spurwink Rod & Gun Club.
We are located at 1250 Sawyer Rd, Cape Elizabeth, Maine 04107.

Our gun club has been in existence for over 60 years. Some years ago a neighborhood was developed near us and few of our neighbors started complaining. Although we are grandfathered for noise under local laws, we need funds to improve and upgrade our range. The funds will be used for a new shooting shed, the no-blue-sky baffle system, and a new electronic security gate. We have made many changes over the last four years but these funds will complete our mission to be the safest most modern shooting facility in Maine.
