Amana Sportsmen Club

This club, started in the 1930's, is a member's only club housed in a cabin off of highway 151 near the Iowa River and Homestead. It is a social club and charitable organization that hosts skeet and trap shoots, picnics, monthly club meetings, and supports youth hunter safety programs for Iowa City West and Clear Creek-Amana High Schools. Hunting, fishing, bow hunting, are some of the leisure sports shared. The club once met in a huge log cabin off 151 just up the hill from the Iowa River where I used to help load the trap for clay pigeon shooting. My Dad was an honorary member where the whole family enjoyed time with friends interested in hunting sports. It is still in existence today with many active members from local and neighboring towns. Membership fee is 50 dollars.
