Sportsman’s Club hosts annual Wild Game Dinner

CROSSVILLE — The Fairfield Glade Sportsman Club held its 26th annual Wild Game Dinner at Scarlett’s Catering banquet hall on March 8 and honored its 2013 Sportsman of the Year.

The event kicked off with a warm welcome as members enjoyed appetizers of venison sausage, cheese and crackers. Dinner consisted of hearty wild boar stew, a deliciously light goose stir-fry, dove in white wine sauce, tender baked pheasant, venison meatballs, boar ribs and sauerkraut, exceptional wild boar pulled pork, roasted elk, turkey and biscuits casserole, wild game jambalaya, buffalo steak, and vegetable side dishes. An incredibly scrumptious ham labeled “for the squeamish” was also offered for those who wanted to support the club but didn’t feel so inclined as to partake of the wild game dishes.

Dave Hohler emceed the proceedings of the club’s most anticipated meeting of the year. Introducing the Sportsman Club’s 2013 Sportsman of the Year award, Hohler praised Dave Phillipe, who has been a member of the club since 2003, for his avid interest and efforts toward improving the club. His many accomplishments include expanding the pistol programs and increasing their memberships, upgrading the existing range and laying the groundwork for the new 300-yard range, revising the club’s webpage and providing consistent updates on events and information, as well as serving as club secretary and board director.  

FFG Sportsman Club President, Chuck Burgess, presented Phillipe with a plaque for the honor of being the 2013 Sportsman of the Year.

“I’m really grateful to have been able to serve the Sportsman Club and help out where I can. I’m happy so many came out to support the club and am looking forward to what the next year will bring,” said Phillipe.

The meeting was then turned to Burgess who addressed club members with the “State of the Club” opening with his appreciation for the opportunity to serve as the club’s president for 2014. Burgess remarked on the growth of not only the club’s membership, now with more than 600 members, but also the growth of the Cumberland County Clay Crushers shooting team, numbering over 45 team members.

“Our scholastic clay target program simply would not exist without the Fairfield Glade Sportsman Club and we are fortunate to have such a fine shooting facility for our students to demonstrate their skills,” stated Burgess.

New news included that the “dry-fire” virtual shotgun training facility was nearing completion and Burgess revisited the discussion to possibly expand the pistol range to better serve the youth Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) pistol team. 

Impressed by the well prepared wild game dishes, members enjoyed the wild buffet and the grand company in which the FFG Sportsman Club Annual Wild Game Dinner was held. The club continues to generate interest and memberships serving the sportsmen of Cumberland County. Established in 1987, the FFG Sportsman Club offers trap, skeet, rifle, and pistol facilities, as well as SCTP, Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) Shoots, and Police Pistol Combat (PPC) sporting programs. The FFG Sportsman Club located off of Shorty Barnes Rd. supports the hunting and firearm history of Cumberland County, sponsors the youth SCTP and hosts the TWRA Hunter Safety Course programs.
