I'll be re-upping at Mansfield this year. I've been a member almost 30 years, and now isn't the time to walk away from the club. I can at least give it my membership support and my best wishes.

I'm not happy with the politics that goes on in ANY club, but I stay a member of Mansfield despite the politics, not because of them.

Whats the deal with this place? I am about to let my membership at Taunton lapse because it is just to far of a drive for me. Mansfield is about twenty minutes closer. Can anyone take me on a tour of the outdoor ranges? I understand the indoor range is non existent, I do not care I would rather shoot outdoors anyways.

I didn't want to post anybodies name without their consent

Good idea! I didn't make the connection until I went back to see who was running the pin group buy!

In spite of the guy who you hang with, welcome to MF&G! BTW, he sponsored me too ~5 years ago.

I understand and you did the right thing, just thought my comment was funny.

I want to join also but I have a job where I would have to be available 24/7 and to be able to make a meeting I would have to take 2 days off to insure that I would not be scheduled to work.

Applicants are asked to attend the BOD and then members meeting. However due to issues like yours, it's perfectly acceptable to just attend the members meeting. Also since all meetings are held at Mansfield Public Library and you only need to stay for a few minutes, if you have school-aged children who can be by themselves in the Library for a short while, you could bring them, go to the meeting for a few to get voted in and then join the kids in the Library. You will need to connect up with the purser to take a photo for the ID (maybe do this before the meeting begins?).

Why not go to Walpole Sportsman, or Westwood gun club. Both close to you.

Also try Holbrook, very nice facilities, Mansfield to my knowledge still only has the ranges open, no club house for the use of facilities or to get warm during the cold months.

Before I get dinged by MFG folks I am only letting folks know that since the club house is not open due to the snow damage two years ago if they are looking for a club with indoor plumbing etc. the building is not yet ready. I could be wrong on the buildings status.

DL and fill out the application and waiver forms from the website www.mansfieldfish.com and bring it to a BOD meeting (9/25) at Mansfield Public Library, then show up at the regular meeting on 10/2 to be voted in by the general membership. Don't worry about a sponsor, that'll get taken care of at the meeting.

Went to the meeting last night and was recommended to the membership. Hopefully I get voted in Wednesday. The board seemed like a good group of people.

I will be there. I am six foot five so I stand out. My name is Erik.

Erik, nice to meet you but sorry I didn't get a chance to really talk with you. The place was packed and I had to talk with a number of people but you could have hung with us as none were private discussions.

Welcome to the club.

I'm looking to finally join a club and have heard great things about Mansfield; it's also very convenient to my location (Plainville). Would anyone mind giving me a tour so I can learn more about it?
