    Stress builds between Cape Elizabeth gun club and neighbors

    CAPE ELIZABETH Nestled into a hollow off Sawyer Road, the Spurwink Rod and Gun Club has been a meeting spot for target shooters for about 56 years.

    On Monday, town councilors decided tensions between the club and some neighbors in a newer residential neighborhood built beyond the woods surrounding the club have reached a level requiring a discussion.

    Councilors unanimously agreed to hold a workshop on the matter, but no date has been set.

    The request for a review of "safety conditions" at the club's gun range came from local lawyer Jamie Wagner, who told councilors he represents a client living in the Cross Hill neighborhood.

    The client remains anonymous, but Wagner said more neighbors are expected to be heard from.

    Hard to tell from the picture, and I've never been there, but it doesn't look like there's a solid backstop for the targets. This is one of the reasons I like finding pits and going to Fryeburg. It's a haul from Portland, but there's no complaining neighbors or town hall disputes.
    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Possibly. An hour there would be the same for gas to get to Fryeburg for the day. Good place to shoot?

    I just got off the phone with whomever was working, and I think I'm going to check it out tomorrow. The person that I spoke to was very helpful and informative, and didn't seem annoyed by simply having a conversation with me like the person I spoke with at Falmouth. So far, I'm impressed, and I haven't even been there!
