Please contact Jordan Wessels at jhwframing@roadrunner.com.  It is very important that we complete this project soon.  The more volunteers we have, the quicker the project can be completed.

Range News

Special Notice

There have been several incidences when the gate for the Range has been closed and locked when someone was still on the Range premises.  The rules concerning entry and exit of the Range and Lodge grounds are as listed below.

 

Note that the ranges are monitored 24/7.

 

·         Entry / Exit – Club Grounds

o   The numbers on all the locks must be set to numbers other than the combination upon opening the lock.

o   The main entry gate to the Club – ranges and lodge –  shall remain unlocked and opened while the grounds are occupied.

o   The gates must be restrained and secured while open.

o   All gates must be closed and locked upon exiting the property by the last member to leave the property.

 

 

Anyone who may need special accommodations when attending an organized shoot at the Range, the Club members running the shoot will do what is reasonably needed to provide safe modifications to ensure each member has the opportunity to participate.

 

Dogs on the range side of our property must be leashed at all times.

Our cameras are up and running 24/7.and have already proven to be very informative. Several incidences caught on camera have been addressed.

Another issue we are dealing with is folks stuffing cardboard backers in the trash barrels. There are wire mesh containers in both ranges for the used backers.  Also, the trash barrels don’t empty themselves, so when you see one getting full, please find others to help dump the debris in these containers into the dumpster.

Last of all, if you see anything that gives you concern for your safety or the club’s safety, please give me (Jordan) a shout or a text.

Muzzle Loader Range

The Muzzle Loader Range will be closed until further notice.
