“Sportsmen’s Club” is okay

A side project of mine is to keep up rangelistings.com, a website that provides a list and map of shooting ranges in each of the Unites States.

So I see all kinds of variations of names for shooting ranges, and this theme sticks out to me:

  • ABC Sportsmans Club
  • ABC Sportsman’s Club
  • ABC Sportsmans’ Club
  • ABC Sportsmens Club
  • ABC Sportsmen’s Club
  • ABC Sportsmens’ Club

Forgetting for the moment that women enjoy the outdoors, let me propose a best form of those variations.

Because a club of one sportsman isn’t much of a club, I propose it should always be plural: sportsmen.

Because the club is possessed by those sportsmen, it should be the possessive form: sportsmen’s.

So, in case anyone would like to fix the name of such a club, try something like ABC Sportsmen’s Club.

(If I am misunderstanding naming, please let me know.)

  1. I am downloading the update to Sync 2 for my 2015 Lincoln MKZ. In the resulting unzipped folder, I get about 13 .cab files, and 10 zip files. They are all in the same unzipped folder. I sincerely appreciate your instructions. Do you have any thoughts on how I should handle these zip files? Do they also get dragged over to the SyncMyRide folder with the cab files? Do I rename them like I renamed the .cab files? Thanks for your time!
