Hey y'all,
Hope everyone has a great and safe Thanksgiving Day and a Merry Christmas !
Just a note we got the night shoots coming up Friday and Saturday night, November 24th and 25th. Also December 29th and 30th. Time: 6:15PM - 10:00PM Hosted by Richard Cookus and Phillip Mason. 
The Pistol Match on second Tuesday, December 9th, Range F @7:30 AM is headed up by NRA Certified Fred Muller assisted by NRA Range Safety Officer, Jon Kitts
Hope to see y'all out there!

A big deal for PCSC this year as been the acceptance and installation of high quality equipment to address trauma and acute heart attack. Please note the area between the clubhouse and the events building now has a cabinet with the equipment securely housed. It is there for trauma emergencies only, not for the "cut finger". If you have any questions kindly direct to Keith Eberly and Scott McGuffie via our contact form on the website.

We look forward to installing the newly elected officers and directors at the third Thursday in December at the board meeting. Remember, December last year was our first pot luck dinner and we will do it again this month  ! Bring what you will and you know, desserts are welcome ! 

As always, thank you for being a member and...

Enjoy the range ! - be safe !

Keith Eberly
President 2017

Good news, the Board approved six dates this year.
We can shoot Friday 10/27 and Saturday 10/28.  
We will start inspecting your guns and ammo. at 6:15 pm, and explain the course of fire and safety rules with a goal to be set up on F by 7:15pm. We will stop firing @10:00pm, please allow time after we finish to pick up cases and put frame's etc. up. You will need a reliable handgun with iron sights and or those that can be considered night sights. These two nights we will not use battery powered sighting help. Bring 50 rounds of quality ammo. in a 50 count container, for each shooter, no loose rounds. Bring safety glasses and hearing protection. This is intended  for male and female members and guest.
We have allowed youth to shoot if they have knowledge of shooting safety and the gun they want to use. This will be conducted on range F and all rules will apply.  
In the past some shooters have wanted to shoot the course of fire again and if they have the ammo. we try to let them.
I hope to allow shooters to use battery powered sights at the November and December night shoots that will be held on 11/24,11/25 and 12/29,12/30 with this time frame. Tell your fellow members how much you learned. Many people have been surprised at the difference darkness makes to loading magazines and handling a gun.
See you there.
Richard Cookus   
Pistol Competition - Second Saturday - Dec 9th !

Monthly Pistol Match, headed up by NRA certified Fred Muller, is held on the Second Saturday of the month at 7:30 AM on Range A. Next Match is December the 9th Second Saturday. Contact Fred if you have any questions and or want to assist in some way.  We are fortunate to have Scott Maclaskey and Fred Muller heading up our Pistol Division 
Report on November Match
Our Club's Pistol Match last Saturday was a good one and I believe the shooters acquired and reinforced some critical skills and had some fun while they were doing it.
There were 11 shooters (one was  new to our matches) and most were there early to help set-up the match. They also helped to break down the match when we were finished. There were voluntary donations that amounted to $35.00 this month.
I would like to thank the Board of Directors and the members of the Safety Committee, and the shooters who helped to make this event possible.
Respectfully submitted
Fred Muller

The board approved a motion to install new officers and directors at the December meeting instead of January. To recap, the leadership of the club, those that manage the club & set policy are as follows:
President: Ryan Donnell
Vice-Pres: Keith Eberly
Secretary: Charles Bearden
Treasurer: Michael Hogue
Directors: Chuck Garrett, Dean Gravatt, Scott McGuffie, Fred Muller
Incumbent: Ray Golden Jr, Scott Maclaskey, Jon Kitts, Bill Seeton
The Buildings/Grounds Committee headed by Director Scott McGuffie has been working on getting the lead mined from the berms and studying some improvements that may be done at the same time. Scott has the assistance of Fred Muller and Henry Harwood and possibly others the editor is unaware of at press time. They will have more to report on that in the coming months.   
Also, Scott has installed new thermostats in both buildings that can be accessed via web based portals to allow climate settings prior to events / occupancy. Henry says the drink machine in the break area is now working. 
We are pleased to announce a return of the pot luck dinner for the December board meeting !
All the best,
Chuck Garrett
