The Central Whidbey Sportsmen’s Association (CWSA)
The CWSA was founded on 11 December 1947 with the principles of comradery and sportsmanship
being foremost considerations. By providing and maintaining a premiere facility to
foster the shooting sports, the aims of the founders will be self-perpetuating.
The CWSA will continue to provide a safe environment where firearm
enthusiasts may exercise and share their fondness of the shooting sports. This
will be accomplished through offered firearm education in all disciplines,
friendly competitions, and meetings related to those topics.
Recognizing that a positive public perception is paramount to the success
of the CWSA’s mission, the Association and its members will always practice
sound principles of citizenship and fellowship. To that end, all will be encouraged
to join the Association, participate in its offerings, and contribute to its
mission in any way possible.
