ALL RANGES ARE OPEN AND THE HOURS ARE PER USUAL CLUB POLICY (seven days a week, 8:00am until the lights come on, 10:00pm for the indoor range. Scheduled shoots / events start up in June. For now the shooting events posted on the calendar are for members only. Please contact the discipline contact to confirm space for with any questions. The calendar will be posted shortly. Below the the few current limitations and important details:
General Range Rules Modifications
- Everyone must maintain a minimum distance of no less than six (6) feet from other persons.
- Only one person per bench / shooting position (immediate family members from the same household may share a bench)
- Guests must be family members from the same household
- Recommend brining your own personal covering (i.e. blanket, towel) for the benches / firing positions (carpet has been removed for sanitation purposes)
- There will be some sanitation material available but please do not rely on this. As you know, we do not have full time staff at the range. It is recommended that you bring your equipment to stay safe.
There will no general membership meeting in June.
The lower range has been returned to normal operations with the traditional range rules. There are no longer firing points for short range pistol use.
The short range will have limited and marked firing points in order for the club to remain compliant. There are two positions at 10 yard area and three positions at 25 yard sections. The 50 yard range is open, and firing is only permitted where an X is marked on the floor with blue tape. The two shooting benches are open, and shooters must stay more than 6 feet apart. It is very important that all markings be obeyed if the short range is to remain in use.
The indoor range is now open. Please keep a safe distance from others. Firing points will be marked.
The archery range will be open as usual with members using 6 feet of social distancing.
Special Notice for 3-Gun / Defensive Gunning / Shotgun Drag Races:
Shoots have resumed. These events usually fill up and we will need to consider the number of people who can attend these events. Please contact the discipline director to save your spot at the shoot. Walk ups will not be able to shoot once a safe capacity is reached.

Work Parties and Club Improvements
Thanks to all who came out to help at the work party on September 27th. There is lots of work that gets done at these along with even more behind the scenes when nobody is looking. Next time you are at the club check out the new benches at the 50 yard line on the short range. They help for both rifle shooting and to keep the social distancing requirements we maintain at the club.

A new way the club will be communicating

For everyone opting in on the membership renewal form and including an email address, we will be launching a monthly electronic newsletter. This will allow to update members on new events, new shoots and other activities. The club will also be able to make immediate announcements regarding changes in events, range openings and temporary closures. If you did not include your email on the renewal form (or if it has changed) we will post a link for you to update this shortly
We will also be adding a quarterly mailed newsletter with similar information. This will allow those who are not online to stay in the loop. Keep checking back for details.
