Clay Shoot at Cacapon State Park
HCP&R will sponsor a Clay Shoot at Cacapon State Park in Berkeley Springs on Saturday, Sept. 14, beginning at 9:30 a.m. The cost for the shoot will be as follows: 1 round of 25 clays using your own gun and shells will be $10; 1 round of 25 clays using your own gun and purchasing shells from Cacapon will be $14; 1 round of 25 clays using Cacapon’s guns and shells will be $20.
To get to the shooting range, turn onto the main park road and proceed to the tennis courts. Turn left at the tennis courts and follow the road up the mountain for approximately 1 mile. The name of the range is Wobble Range.
If you are interested in the shoot, get your reservation in as soon as possible, as there is a limit of 15 shooters allowed. Spots will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call at (304) 822-7300 any weekday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. You may also register in person at the HCP&R Office at 90 North High Street in Romney during those same hours.
Bicycle Fun Ride
Due to a scheduling conflict, Park’s and Rec had to change the date for their 6th annual Bicycle Fun Ride. It will now be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, beginning at 10 a.m. The ride will cover a ten-mile stretch from Capon Bridge to Yellow Spring along Cacapon River Road. The ride will start and end at the Capon Bridge Town Park, where they will hold a free luncheon after the ride. Drinks and snacks will also be provided for all participants before and during the ride.
As he has in the past, Ken Caldwell is doing a lot of the legwork for the ride. He says that drivers on Cacapon River Road are used to seeing bikers on that road, so traffic shouldn’t be a problem. This year they chose a longer but flatter course, which should please some of the less accomplished riders. Ken has even offered to hold a short informational meeting before the ride to cover bike safety and etiquette when riding a public road. Don't miss this opportunity to spend some time outdoors riding through some of the most picturesque scenery that you will find anywhere in Hampshire County.
New Conference Center at Hampshire Park
The Hampshire County Commission and Hampshire County Parks and Recreation have begun a joint effort to build a new conference center at Hampshire Park. The new building will replace the current dining hall/kitchen and showers and will be constructed on that site.
Demolition of the old building began on Aug. 5, with the new construction set to get underway in late September or early October. Pioneer Pole Buildings from Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, will construct the shell for the new facility, and the interior will be completed by a local contractor yet to be determined.
The 6,000-square-foot conference center will be heated and air conditioned for year-round use and will be available for a variety of functions, including:
Camps for Organizations
