Some good news about the Club's Night Shoot - This from Mr, Chip McLendon:
"Gotta say…. The night shoot was a hoot. Great experience and very well run plus very safe being in the dark. Little bit of learning curve understanding stages and safety protocols at forward firing line. RO and safety officer had patience of Job.
Kudos to organizers. Thanks for your time and efforts."

Thanks, Chip !

Remember range etiquette as we near deer season rifle sight in and good luck in the early season hunting to come !


All the best,

Keith Eberly

President 2021

Safety Briefing
We need your Help!
Most years the Club will have two safety violations. This year, the Club has had 12 Rule Violations in the first six months. Most involve tactical shooting, move and shoot, shooting in front of the bench on Ranges B & C, shooting steel plates on Range A, using homemade target holders that are made of steel on the bottom and are the wrong height for our ranges, and shooting 1½ hours before sunrise.

READ THE RULE BOOK ONLINE.
 
If any of our members see this type of behavior, please get all the information you can on the violators and send it to the Club; it will get to me. Your name will not be used. If you are uncomfortable personally correcting any violation, take a photo of their vehicle with the license plate visible. If you are one of the rule violators you need to go to another gun range. We are not a tactical range.
 
When we catch you, and we will, you will dismissed and banned from the Club.
 
Phillip Mason
Director & Chairman of the Safety Committee

November Pistol Match Information !
"This month we'll have a couple of a bit different stages for everyone. One will be tic-tac-toe with a bit of Vegas thrown in. Roll the Texas-size dice to see how many rounds you get to load into your magazines (hey, life isn't always fair!), then simply hit three in a row on the tic-tac-toe grid to score some easy points. Another will challenge you as a simulated car passenger to defend you and yours via your window (viewing port). Natually, we'll do a couple of the tried and true stages too to showcase those shooters possessing speed and accuracy. It'll be fun. See you at the normal time on Saturday, November 13, at the normal time. 8:00 a.m. setup, pre-match briefing right after that, then it's game on. See you then."

Thanks,

Jim Groce
