Up coming changes that are being considered.

With the recent problems with members not seeing safety signs and not being educated on all the safety needed while shooting at the club, there may be a new range safety course offered for new members. It will be given on certain days of each month from Jan. to end of August. This course is hands on at each shooting range and should take around an hour to complete. After that you will receive a membership card with all privileges. Also an initiation fee of $20 on top of the membership fee that will be $40 starting Jan. 1st 2015. This covers the training cost for the officers doing the membership training. New membership application only available at the clubhouse. For renewing the safety course will be available as a written doc. that you will read and sign. Members need to know the rules on each range regardless of use and the fact that they are also liable for their actions along with their guest actions. A limit of two guest per member at one time is also being considered. These items will be discussed at the membership meetings.

UPDATE ON RANGES Rifle Range will be open this weekend

The membership pistol bay will be closed until further notice. This does not mean you may shoot pistols on the rifle range. The rifle range is for rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader and long range pistol ONLY.

The Special Event area will have the IDPA, Cowboy action and USPSA matches as usual for the remainder of the year.

Law enforcement training has been suspended for the remaining of 2014

ABIDE BY ALL SAFETY RULES ON THE RANGE!

NOTICE: The rifle range and pistol bay are closed

Due to the membership not abiding by the clubs safety rules the ranges will be closed until further notice. Yes it is unfair to punish the majority for a few. The board of directors will be meeting Thursday 10/15 to review the range officer training for members and design a system to stop members from abusing the safety rules for both the rifle range and the pistol bay.
