Michigan Shooting Centers LLC is formed.

Patrick Lieske began Michigan Shooting Centers in October of 2001 when he bid on and was eventually awarded the lease to operate the shooting range at Island Lake State Recreation area in Brighton, Michigan. At that time, Island Lake offered only rifle & pistol and skeet and trap amenities. A sporting clays course was constructed by Lieske and the facility at Island Lake officially opened to the public under the management of Michigan Shooting Centers in the summer of 2002.
