The Rock Dam Rod & Gun Club
was organized in 1946. Some of the old buildings
were moved to the present site and the buildings were
then built new in 1969. In 1993, Roy Trynsk was
president, Jean Ketterhagen was clerk/treasurer and
the Vice President was George Klovas. Jean had
been in office for about 10 years. The club is
a non-profit organization which promotes conservation,
natural resources, wild life, and fish. The active
group has many fund-raisers during the year such as
their grilled chicken dinner, smelt fish feed, wild
game feed and many other events. The club has
a good membership and a fan club to be involved with.
It is the dedicated people who have made this club what
