The Marceline Rod and Gun Club, located one-fourth mile east of Highway 5 and on the north city limits of Marceline, was founded and incorporated July 1961. There is a club house and two electric traps, both of which are fully lit by floodlights to enable shooting at nights as well as days. The club shoots every other Sunday and every Wednesday night and also schedules practice shooting for other nights.
The club has played host to many of the better trap shooters in the northern half of the state. One of its members, George A. Minich, won the State Handicap Championship last year in Wright City, Missouri. Another shooter and resident of Marceline, Lyle Woods, has won several trophies and a car in Wichita, Kansas.
