About Our Club

Smithfield Sportsman's Club, located at 14 Walter Carey Road in Smithfield, RI, was founded in 1917 as Georgiaville Foxhunter’s Club by David Harris (President 1917-1938), Oscar Steere, Henry Keene and Louis Giusti for the purpose of promoting game conservation and legislation favorable to sportsmen.

 

Today, the club is a thriving community of over 300 regular members with interests ranging from hunting to fishing to target shooting to archery, and the club continues to actively promote conservation and legislation to protect the interests of all sportsmen.

 



 

Interested in becoming a member?

If you are interested in becoming a member, you should get to know us. You are welcome to come to our monthly meetings, which are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30, and introduce yourself.  Doors open at 6:30 and dinner is usually available for a small donation. You will discover a friendly group of people who welcome fellow firearms and sports enthusiasts.

 

You can also get to know us by participating in our public programs, and fundraiser dinners. We host RI DEM Hunter Safety programs twice a year, in spring and fall. We also hold CMP shoots, and our Archery and Junior Rifle programs allow you to bring the family, too.

 

You might also like to bring the whole family to meet us at our annual Field Day event held on the third Sunday in September. Admission and parking for Field Day is free, and it's fun for the whole family!

Help Wanted: "Rapid Reaction Team" Members

Protect your 2nd Amendment Rights!

 

The Rhode Island Legislature continues to reintroduced anti-gun and anti-sportsman bills, and, once again, there will be public hearings on the bills. To combat this, we're going to need your help:

 

Obviously, the public hearings on these bills are going to be very important. Our legislators' votes are swayed by the very presence of people who care enough to show up at these public hearings,  be they for or against the issues.

 

Unfortunately, because legislative public hearings are usually held on weekday afternoons, and are often called on short notice, only people who have the connections to know about about these hearings and who can arrange to attend such hearings on short notice, actually show up.

 

Who are those people who show up? Right now, they are mostly anti-gun and anti-sportsman supporters. Why? Because those groups have organized "Rapid Reaction Teams" who can be notified quickly to mobilize large numbers of their members to attend the public hearings.

 

Federated RI Sportsman Club wants to level the playing field. They are trying to organize Rapid Response Teams so that all all of us— all the shooting enthusiasts, hunters, and sportsmen in Rhode Island— will be able to make our voices heard on these important legislative issues.

 

If you are retired, or self employed, or have a flexible schedule, we'd like you to sign up to become part of these teams. If there are members of your family who may be available to go the the public hearings and represent our interests, please ask them if they would consider becoming part of the teams, too. Their presence might carry even more weight with the legislators precisely because they are not themselves members of any club. And as you can imagine, the opinions of  moms and grandmothers can really make a difference to the legislators and the news media!

 

No one will be asked to attend every public hearing,  nor will they be asked to speak unless they wish to. But we want to be able to make our presence felt and our voices heard. FRISC is asking all the Clubs in the state to recruit as many volunteers as they can, so that when there is a public hearing,  50 or 100 people will show up in support of our views so that our legislators will know that: we are paying attention, we are going to defend our 2nd amendment rights, and, most important of all, that we VOTE for legislator who support US!

 

Thank you!
