1946 heralded the beginning of the Koppel-Big Beaver Sportsmen’s Association (KBBSA) Without any property, a group of twenty men who believed in sportsmanship joined forces and held their first meeting at the Koppel Borough Building. In 1951 KBBSA purchased 60 acres and decided that the first project of the club would be to build a comcrib to hold the PA Game Commission grown corn. Which was intended for the feeding of wild game. Shortly after, the Association built a range and clubhouse. We currently, own 312 acres, featuring the original clubhouse with a newly remodeled kitchen, picnic shelter and garage. The “old corn crib” is still on the property today. The KBBSA boasts four ranges. The main outdoor range is two hundred fifty yards with a thirty-five foot back stop. One range allows our members to participate in turkey shoot competitions and Ladies Practical Shooting Practice. The indoor range located in our air conditioned clubhouse, is fifty foot and allows members and guests to enjoy target shooting (9mm maximum, no jackets, no magnums). Currently under construction is a new trap range.
Members of the KBBSA, have full access to the facilities and grounds, and can rent the club house. Enjoy the grounds for target practice, hiking, picnicking, and hunting or join in on the CMP shoots, rifle team or turkey shoots. Members and family can also participate in the annual club dinner and Christmas Party.
