The Aces originated as a school-sponsored sports team in 2006 and became available to middle school and high school-age youths from surrounding communities in 2011. The team currently has 20 members, including both males and females, and competes against shooting clubs from all over the nation.
As is the case with most clubs, fund-raising is necessary for the team’s survival, and to some extent, its success. Our primary fund-raiser, an annual gun raffle, does not bring in enough dollars to cover all of the team’s costs for the shooting season. We hope to partner with businesses and community members to help bridge the financial gap.
We hope you will join the coaches, parents, participants, and sponsors in making the 2018 shooting team a success. If you would like to make a donation, please make your check payable to the Mulberry Grove Aces Shooting Team and send it to P.O. Box 85, Mulberry Grove, IL, 62262. The Mulberry Grove Aces Shooting Team is a registered 501(C) 3 organization, and donations to the club are tax-deductible. You may also contact me at (618) 792-7957 to discuss sponsorship opportunities, including the opportunity to place your company’s advertisement on the team’s equipment trailer.
Thank you in advance for investing in our youth!

In kind donations: In addition to the above, the KVS Club welcomes us to their facility each year. Pete Vonburg, Ivan Gunter, and some other club members worked hard to secure a grant for the lights and associated apparatus and to install them. More lighting on our end of the trap field means we can practice after dark. Not only will this expedite our practice schedule so we can finish sooner every Friday night, but it also affords us the opportunity to have a designated doubles shooting area. One of the new lights was defective. True Value of Greenville donated the use of their lift jack to take the light down to send back for replacement. We appreciate the kindness extended to us from both organizations and the people representing them.
