and Club Information:
On March 27, 1962 the club joined the Armstrong County Sportsmen and Conservation League. In 1965, the Snyderville Sportsmen's Club merged with the Pine Creek Sportsmen's Club.
The club purchased an old store building and 18 acres of property in Echo in 1964, about one mile off of Route 66 on what is known as Oscar Road. After tearing the building down, the club built a new clubhouse. This clubhouse was used until 1989 when a new 30' by 90' building was built at the same location.
The club has an indoor 22 shooting range, and holds 22 shoots on Thursday nights. The shoots start at 8:00 PM. The club also has outdoor shooting ranges. There is a 25 & 50 yard pistol range and a 50 & 100 yard rifle range. The club built a trap range in 1996. Trap shoots are held in the summer months. The club also has an indoor and outdoor archery range.
The club sponsors a Hunter & Trappers Education course every year. These courses are well attended. The club has seven of its members qualified to be instructors for the course.
The club has operated a Co-Operative fish nursery since 1975. The nursery raises approximately 3000 to 4000 Brook, Brown, Rainbow and Golden trout. The club stocks these trout in Pine Creek and other local trout streams. The club has built, operates, and maintains a physical and mentally challenged and kids fishing area at Baum Pump Station on North Fork Creek along Route 66.
The club participates in two very important events each year that are sponsored by the Armstrong County Sportsmen and Conservation League. They are the Youth Field Day and the Special Friends Fishing Day (held for mentally and physically challenged people).
Pine Creek Sportsmen's Club is proud of having two of its members inducted to the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen's Hall of Fame. These two club members are Stanley Rupert and Earle (Bud) Floyd.
The Pine Creek Sportsmen's Club also sponsors a very active youth group of approximately 20 young people. The youth group meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm. The youth group's activities include archery/rifle/trap shooting, building bluebird and duck boxes, and stocking nursery raised trout.
The Pine Creek Sportsmen Club is an alcohol free club. The main fund raising activity is a food stand at the Dayton fair. The club participates in the road & stream clean-up program in the spring of each year. Club sponsored activities include summer picnics and wiener roasts, a Thanksgiving dinner, and an annual fish fry for its 300+ members.
