History

Jarrahdale Sporting Shooters Inc was first theorised 1995 when members from other clubs combined to look for a new location. Through the tireless work of these people over a 5 year period, the club was formed in 1999. Earthworks began and the facilities as we know them now took shape. Constant reshaping and re-imagining of the club and its ethos have lead us to where we are today. However, this was not an easy process to say the least.

In 1996 the event in Port Arthur took place and governments and councils were running scared from anything to do with firearms. Without people like Ross & Jo Allanson, Ray and Maureen Edwards, Phil and Kathy Brenzi, Tony Warner and Paul Peake working extremely hard to make the vision of JSSI a reality, it is easy to see the club may not have even existed at all! The thanks of all members past, present and future goes out to these people.
