2017 Elections: These positions are up for reelection this year: Vice President, Secretary, Range Officer and 2 board members. Rod Haag has been appointed nomination chair, if you are interested in nominating someone or nominating yourself, please talk with Rod.

Range Safety and Security:

Do not flip the lights on unless you talk to the people who were their first, unless it is an emergency. It has been brought to the board’s attention, that for example: someone using the 200 yard range and people arrive to the 50 yard range and flip the lights on to go down range to place targets without communicating to the folks in person using the 200 yard range. Remember first person there is in charge of range.

The gate has been left open, if the gate will not close, call one of the board members listed below or in the SOP.

Shooting will increase this fall, please pick up after yourself, including wads from shotgun slugs. Please put shot up backers in the dumpster, there is new backers in the blue shed if needed. If there is none please contact a board member.

Rodenticide will be placed in buildings on the grounds this fall, please be mindful of children and pets.

From Rod Haag:

October shooting events are Sundays in Oct. 1:00 pm trap and the range is open.

Also Sat October 7 and the 14th from 4:00 pm until close, the range will be open for 300 yard practice only. No shooting or other activities may take place ahead of the 300 yard line. Talk with Rick Hunt if you have any questions.

We are looking for people interested in coordinating events in 2018. If you are interested in running an established event or bringing something new to the range, please talk with a board member.

It is not too early to start thinking about next year`s shooting calendar.



Short Range Update:

Moving forward, 2 members have volunteered their engineering expertise. A plan has been made with a footprint. Expect to see the location laid out with stakes very soon. More details will be presented at one of the fall meetings.
