There will be several animal shows. Tom Ricardi’s Birds of Prey will be held at 1:45 followed by WolfTalk’s Wolf Show at 2:45. Our very own Westford K-9 and Office Peladeau will have demos along the pond at 1:30pm and 3:30pm.

This year the club welcomes a group of Minutemen for the first time and both the SWAT team and Blacksmith Ray Ciemny will be returning.

Guests will be able to get some hands on experience at the archery range as well as one-on-one instruction on fly fishing and spin cast fishing along the pond. Both the Trap Range and Pistol Range have demos at 1:15, 2:15, and 3:15. The archery range will also feature bow making demos and will have information on Junior Archery at the club.

The WSC is a non-profit organization with over 700 members. The WSC provides several programs of interest to the community including archery courses through the Recreation Department, Home Firearm Safety courses through the Roudenbush, and the annual Fishing Derby. The WSC scholarship fund helps students attend Conservation Camp as well as college. Please visit us at our Welcome Tent to learn more about these programs and the club.

The Westford Sportsmen’s Club is located on 80 West Street between St. Catherine’s and Route 40 at the Groton/Westford line.
