OUTDOORS Barren River Rod and Gun Club The Barren River Rod and Gun Club is more than a hunting and fishing organization. It is a place where members and their families can meet and greet each other and have a good meal. The private, nonprofit organization was founded in August 1967 by a group of local people who were committed to promoting outdoor activities. The club’s stated objective is “The preservation of fish, wildlife and natural resources! Dedicated to promoting better outdoor recreation.” The organization is led by a 12-member board, which includes four officers, and has approximately 390 members. Along with a monthly potluck meeting that is the first Thursday of each month, there are programs offered yearround by the club. One of the highlights is the annual Family Field Day at the clubhouse at 230 Crow Road in Lucas, Ky. The 2016 Field Day will be Sept. 10 with as many as 500 people anticipated to attend. Also each week, the club hosts trap shooting practice on Monday evenings and holds competitive trap shooting events on the first and third Friday of each month. The Rod and Gun Club regularly hosts concealed-carry classes and advanced handgun classes for those with more experience with firearms. For those who enjoy fishing, there are also competitions for members, including the Big Bass contest and access to Barren River Lake. The club grounds also offer areas for archery and other activities, such as camping. Membership is $36 a year.
