Tree trimming got done early and the Short Range is now open for use.


The short range will be closed Monday Dec 18th from 8am-4pm for tree trimming.
All other ranges will remain open for use. Signs will be posted at the club as a reminder. If there are any questions contact Executive Officer Daryl Fitzpatrick.


Hanging Plates on the 25yd Range

Our very popular plate rack has been replaced with hanging plates. The plates rack will need to be repaired and rebuilt and may show up from time to time.

Please remember

Only shoot .22 Rimfire and Pistol calibers at the hanging targets.

No Centerfire Rifles


It has been a long time since shotgun shooting has been allowed at Four Corners.

But if all goes as planned, a modified form of clay bird shooting will begin again

once a month on the Lower Range starting in May and running through October.

The course of fire will be 25 birds per round. The number of rounds to be shot –

either one or two – will be determined by the number of shooters wishing to shoot.

All targets will be straight trap like shooting. No annies, chip shots, or any other

type of games will be allowed which might result in any shot leaving the lower

range area. Shells will be limited to lead shot only, size 7 ½ or smaller shot. Gun

handling safety will be strictly enforced and the range must be properly cleaned up

at the end of the shooting fun. The cost per round has not been determined yet but

will need to be paid in cash so as to cover the cost of the birds.

It is hoped this will be another fun shooting experience for our members to

participate in, not to mention good practice to get ready for the bird seasons. So

watch the calendar, and come on out and watch or participate if you can.

Help Wanted for the Rickreall Gun Show

The Summer Rickreall Gun Show will be coming up on Saturday and Sunday,

June 10 and 11, 2017, at the Polk County Fairgrounds. As usual, the Four Corners Rod

and Gun Club will support their gun show efforts by having an information and

membership table at the show to make our facilities, programs, and activities know to the

people attending the show.

Member volunteers are needed to man the table. Two members are needed at the table

for each of four shifts or a total of eight members. Table shifts will run from 9:00 AM to

1:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturday and 9:00 AM till 12:00 PM and 12:00 PM

to 3:00 PM on Sunday.

Club members manning the table will receive free admission to the gun show. This, of

course, is in addition to the reward of being of service to the club, gaining an opportunity

to meet and talk with a lot of interesting people, and being able to browse around the

show and look at all the goodies.

Members desiring to help will need to sign up for a shift so that their names can be given

to show management for name tags and free entry. To sign up for a shift, or if you have

questions, please call Tim Brown at 503-390- 1922.

First Dues Reminder

The membership year for Four Corners Rod and Gun Club runs from July 1 of one year to

June 30 of the following year. For the membership year beginning July 1, 2017 dues will be

$200.00 for full members, $100.00 for members age 62 or older on or before the July 1 dues

date, and $10.00 for each eligible associate member.

Membership renewal notices will be sent to members in early May. The completed and signed

renewal form must be returned to the club with the appropriate dues payment in order for an

individual’s membership to be kept active. Completed renewal forms are the main way the club

has of keeping its membership database up to date. Once again, no membership renewals will be

processed without a completed and signed membership renewal form. Incomplete forms, or

payments received without a renewal form will be returned. So, do not pay your membership

dues until you get your renewal form and be sure to send the fully completed form with your

payment. If you have not received a form by late May please contact me.

A reminder for those members who have VA disability related reductions of their dues.

Members with a VA disability will be allowed to reduce their dues by one-half their VA

disability percentage, not to exceed a total reduction of 50% in their dues rate. As in the past, if

you have previously sent in your percentage VA disability documentation and your percentage

has not changed, you do not need to send in the documents again. Just indicate on the renewal

form one-half your percentage in the % line. If your percentage has changed, or you have never

sent in the documentation, you will need to send it with the renewal form. If for some reason

your percentage documentation sent in prior years is not on file you will be contacted to provide

it before your renewal can be processed.

Article IV of the club by-laws states in part:

Dues – (A) The members’ annual dues …. shall be payable to the club not later than July 1st of

each year.

(B) No member of the club in arrears shall be eligible to vote or to enjoy any of the privileges or

benefits offered by the club. The executive Committee shall have the authority to deal with the

status of any member whose dues are in arrears at its discretion after consideration of all existing

circumstances in each individual case.

What the above simply means is that member’s annual dues are due to the club by July 1st and

any member who has not paid his or her dues by the July 1st date is no longer considered a

member of Four Corners Rod and Gun Club.

Keep in mind that it is each member’s responsibility to pay his or her dues by the due date. So

mark your calendars and don’t forget to send in your dues when you receive your renewal form.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 503-390- 1922.
