The New Prague Sportsmans Club was established in the late 1920's and the poineers of the organization were Emil Svoboda, Bill Wrabek, Charlie Wrabek, George Kocina, Jack Cihlar, Ed Kucera, Pete Cihlar, Hubert Barten and Art Picha.  Pete Cihlar was the first club president.  The first so called organized Sportmans Meeting was held at Charlie Wrabek's creek in 1929, which was located just outside of the New Prague City limits.  There they enjoyed a concoction of home brew with the first fish fry held by the club.

Two individuals, Jack Cihlar and Hubert Barten were very involved with Fish/Game Management and preserving natural refuge and resources for game in this area.  These two people were very active and helped carry the clubs interested to about 1947.  With membership's growing year by year the club voted on holding their meetings in the New Prague City hall, then voted again to hold meetings at the New Prague Park Ballroom, at which is presently the meeting location.  The meetings are held every last Thursday of each month.
