FEDERATED RHODE ISLAND SPORTSMEN’S CLUBS, INC
The goal of FRISC is the unification of organized sportsmen of Rhode Island and nearby territory into a single body, thereby creating cooperative thought and action towards establishing and maintaining sane and suitable control of the restoration, protection and preservation of fish, game, and non-game wildlife and their habitats and to perpetuate with the high ethics and ideals the recreational sport of fishing, hunting, sport shooting, camping, horseback riding, reforestation, beautification, and clean waters.
In the furtherance of this mission, the Federated’s leadership and member clubs attend and testify at Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and State legislative hearings. In return, DEM attends the FRISC’s monthly meetings. This reciprocal practice greatly facilitates effective communication between the regulatory and sportsmen communities.
FRISC has sponsored a Political Action Committee, a Game Dinner, A Federated Day, and an Annual Banquet where a Sports Person and a Sports Youth are recognized. It also initiated state-wide Shot Gunner and Archer of the Year competitions. FRISC delegates regularly report back to the member clubs.
The member clubs further extend the FRISC’s mission outreach to their members, family, friends and general public through field days, fishing, shooting and social activities. The clubs are also ensuring the perpetuation of the future sportsmen activities and second amendment rights by sponsoring a variety of educational sports youth activities.
The Federated has an open enrollment policy for organizational and individual memberships.
