Lower Wetumpka Shotgun Sports Club was started March 27, 2001. Gary, Fred, and Paul Woolard started the Club as a personal place to shoot. While Maxwell was redoing part of the runway, their skeet field had to be closed. This left a lot of skeet shooters wanting a place to go. With the aid of Johnny Johnson, a shooting schedule was created and the Club was born. A few months later the sporting clays course was installed. From there the Club has continued to grow each year.
