Hello Range Members,
We've had a very busy month at the Range. Lots of folks visiting for the first time and some folks coming back after a long absence. Wonderful to see them all!
New things to see at the Range are our metal targets on the Pistol and Rifle Ranges. Shooters will enjoy the "plinking" and our paperbacked targets are expected to last longer as a result. You will also notice many more safety signs around. Please follow their directions to insure safe use of the Range, as we do not always have Range Safety Officers (RSO's) present.
On that note, the Range Committee would like to welcome four new RSO's. Bill O'Brian, John Bennett, Tom Poulin, and Lonnie Allen. These folks put in a very long day of intense training for the benefit of the Range. Thank you gentlemen!
The Range is hosting a new event. Our first annual Trap Shoot for Veterans and First Responders on Saturday, September 24th from 9am to noon. We are working with Pine Grove Programs and if you know someone interested in attending, they can contact John Bennett at
CVOA is donating the venue, clays, and food. Some Range members are also donating ammunition. If you would like to volunteer to help barbecue or can donate a side dish or dessert, contact me, Diane Stone, at CVOA.email@example.com. The event will be small this year with hopes of expanding in the years to come.
Another new feature, Lou Alfieri is hosting a regular Wednesday morning 5 Stand Shoot. If you are interested in joining the fun, you can contact Lou at 207-491-8684. Lou starts at 9am and goes until everyone is done. Have fun shooters!
