Results of Copley Township's Attempt to Shut Down Copley Trap Range

After 6 years of discussions and filing 2 lawsuits within the last 3 years to close Copley Trap Range, Copley Township Trustees have reached an agreement with the Ohio Sportsmen Farmers League, Buckeye Outdoors Youth Education & Shooting Center, and Copley Trap Range. The agreement was reached the week preceding the trial date of August 9-11th, 2016 and is essentially the same offer we made to them in 2012 and again in 2014. It was signed into law on August 23rd, by Judge Corrigall Jones. Copley Trap Range will continue to shoot on Saturdays 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and our Youth Trapshooting Program, held during April through June will not be effected. Thank you to all the people who supported us, both financially and morally, Safari Club International Ohio Chapter, the NRA, and a special thanks to our attorneys Nicholas Horrigan and Todd Harpst for their expertise and generosity
