Always check the website just before going to the outdoor range.
Those of us with a key to the indoor range are reminded that that range is only to be used for scheduled club events. It is not to be used for practice or personal needs. Thank you.
**********$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ The outdoor range will be Mowed Tuesday afternoon August 4th beginning at 5 PM, weather permitting. Please have your shooting completed at that time. The range will close for the rest of the evening. Please note that going forward the Outdoor Range will be mowed every Tuesday evening, weather permitting, from 5 PM till dark and the Range will be closed. As we all know the weather can spoil the best made plans so check the website right before you travel to the Range for last minute updates. Thank you. $$$$$$$$$$*****************
We have been finding more and more trash at the outdoor range, water bottles, used target frames, and all kind of used targets in the pits. We remind you that YOU are to take ALL your trash home with you. We do not have garbage service out there. Take out what you bring in.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Starting June 1st the club will resume a semi normal operation. We use the term semi normal because we need to follow the rules and recommendations on gatherings and social distancing. Furthermore we encourage the use of face masks. The health and safety of each member is our main goal. In addition, the last thing we need is for the club to be mentioned in the newspapers as the source of an outbreak of Covid 19
At the Indoor Range we will put 5 shooters on the line per relay and thus achieve sufficient distance. We will rotate shooters on/off the line till everybody has had the opportunity to shoot. For the Outdoor Range the match directors have already revised, or will revise in the near future, the format to provide the safest environment while observing social distancing. If you have questions please contact the match director for the event you plan to attend.
