PISTOL- The outdoor pistol practice scheduled for June 9th has been CANCELED
Alert, Alert ,Alert
The combination to the outdoor range has been changed (April, 24,2021). The new combination is on the back of your 2021 membership card. If you have not renewed yet you can go to the join page for info on how to do that.
When at the outdoor range no one is to drive off any of the roads. We had someone do donuts on the left side of the road back to the pits. If you know who this was, please contact one of the board or match directors ASAP. If we catch anybody driving in the fields it will be brought before the membership and you will lose your membership. This is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We have a lot of money in this range, and we pay to have it mowed. We may even access you for damages if we catch you.
The mowing of the outdoor range will start Tuesday April 6th at 5 PM. All shooting has to be completed by then. The range will be closed the rest of the evening. Please make sure you have picked up all your target equipment before you leave. The mowing will continue every Tuesday at 5PM until further notice.
ALWAYS CHECK THE WEBSITE JUST BEFORE GOING TO EITHER OF OUR RANGES.
Larry Klostermann spent 6 hours one day last week and cleaned the entire backstop and the rest of the range. We were there this morning and found trash in the pit area and around the range. We do not have garbage service, take out what you take in. Any caught leaving garbage there and reported could face disciplinary action with the board. The port a potty in there now and is not a trash can. We have a beautiful range please keep it that way.
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.
