We have replaced all the chairs at the clubhouse. The old chairs are out under the picnic table roof on the side of the building. Anyone who wants some or all of these old chairs is welcome to come and take them. Help yourself, if they aren’t gone in a week or so we will dispose of them elsewhere. Here’s a photo of the available chairs, there are about 30 to 35 of them.
Steel Plate Fee Update:
After 25 years of charging $1 per match to shoot in our steel falling plate matches it has been decided that inflation has finally caught up to us and we are raising the fee per match to $2.
We are looking to see if there is enough interest for us to run the Winchester/NRA Pistol Qualification course this winter. This would be Pistol, Defensive Pistol I, and Defensive Pistol II. Pistol would require you to shoot 570 rounds of ammo and .22LR would be allowed. Defensive Pistol I requires 200 rounds of centerfire and Defensive Pistol II requires 240 rounds of centerfire ammunition. We won’t start this until after big game season closes and would shoot on Wednesday nights. If you are interested in shooting this qualifier drop us an email at email@example.com or go to our Facebook page and send us a message there. All information can be found at this web site:
Indoor Range Issues:
We are having issues on the indoor range with people shooting and bullets striking the pads on the wall and the upper baffles. When you shoot on the range be sure you hang your targets so that ALL your bullets will strike the steel backstop, not the floor, walls, or upper baffles. Only shoot at targets hanging on the hanger of the lane you are using, don’t hang a target on lane 4 and shoot at it from lane 3 etc.. If you shoot at targets with the hangers only part way down range be sure to use the short target hangers, they are very easy to change out from the longer ones.
Winter League Schedule:
The dates for our winter steel plates and bullseye leagues have been posted on the calendar page. Check that page if you are interested in shooting in either of these leagues.
Looking For Cardboard:
We are looking for corrugated cardboard sheets that are 2 feet by 3 feet in size or sheets that can be trimmed to that size. We use these in our defensive pistol league to paste our targets on and for use as barriers and barricades. If you have any you would care to donate just let us know and we can pick it up or you can drop it off at the club.
Our regular monthly meeting for October will be held at 7:30 PM on Wednesday October 11. There are openings for new members if you have a friend who might like to join the club.
Outdoor Range Rules:
We have had some complaints from the neighborhood that members are not blowing the siren, putting up the flag on the shooting bench shed, and shooting at times that are not during the approved times for use of the range. We have posted some new signage in conspicuous locales to remind members that these conditions must be met if you want to use the outdoor range. Please keep this in mind so we stay on good terms with all our neighbors.
Our Facebook Page:
Through a donation of books and videos by Ort Burleigh’s family, we have set up a small lending library at the club. If you wish to borrow an item just sign the book with your name, date, and what you borrowed. The books and videos are located on the table next to the small refrigerator. There is a VCR Player there to lend too if you don’t have one to play the tapes on.
