Always, Always, Always, Always Always, check the website calendar before going to either range just before you head that way.
There was trash found at the outdoor range again. Cleaning patches, soft drink cans/bottles and parts of a target stand. You are required to take ALL trash home with you, NO exceptions.
Change in Plans,
Starting next Tuesday April 26th, the outdoor range will be closed from 5pm for the rest of the evening for mowing. It will be close every Tuesday at 5 pm until further notice.
Please have all your shooting completed and targets cleaned up by then.
Again, we have found someone was shooting centerfire rifle on the pistol side. I was 308. It was also shot on a target position that is not allowed due a competition target. Major damage was done. Purposely destroying club property is considered vandalism and will not be tolerated. If you see someone doing this, please report them. It is getting to the point where cameras may be installed. If we catch you, you will be brought before the board for possible loss of membership and the cost of the damages.
The Wednesday shooting start time at the indoor range has been changed to 6 pm. We hope this will allow more shooters to make the range.
Those who plan to attend outdoor pistol practice please contact Mitch Sizemore <email@example.com> 1-502-664-9406 and let him know you plan to attend and about what time you plan to be there. If you do not register and show up later than 4 he may not be there.
Reminders: DO NOT drive in the fields, stay on the roads. NO centerfire Rifles are to be shot on the pistol side. .22 rimfire rifles are OK. Do not hang targets on the number boards, take everything home with you brought in including target stands. Please pickup your shotgun/rifle cases if they land outside the bench area, cases are hard on mower blades.
