NOTICE : Click HERE for the Bylaws adopted February 18th, 2016
Monthly Board Meeting: Monthly Board Meetings are held in the clubhouse on the second Monday of the month at 7 PM, unless posted otherwise. Any changes to this schedule will be posted on the club calendar.
Rifle Range Safety Issue: There have been a few issues where people have pulled guns or handled them while people are down range putting up targets. This is an unsafe condition. Whenever someone is down range, leave your firearms in their cases or on the gun rack. Please show your fellow shareholders the consideration that you would like to be shown to yourself.
The club has installed red lights on each range. When anyone is downrange, these red lights are to be turned on. If the red lights are one, ALL guns are to be open-action and behind the yellow line in the rack at the back of the benches. If you arrive and the light is on, it is up to you to check all ranges.
