Membership is now closed
No new applications will be accepted for 2016
The latest version of the Range Rules and Club Bylaws is also available.
Range is closed every Wednesday until 12 Noon for maintenance, year round. Just because the grass stops growing doesn't mean there isn't other work to be done. We can always use more volunteer help with mowing, trimming, rebuilding target backers, fence repair, etc.
The Board of Directors has voted to increase annual dues to $90 per year, starting in 2016.
We have been able to hold the annual dues steady since before 2000. We are not planning to accept any new members next year, as we are already above the member ceiling set previously, and many members have complained about crowding on the rifle/pistol range on weekends.
The reason for the increase now is to pay for several major projects coming in the next couple of years that will help ease the crowding and make the ranges safer and more enjoyable. The projects planned now are:
· Add dirt berm to separate our range from the SSPD range next door, as well as better safety isolation along our rifle/pistol range.
· Extend the rifle/pistol range shooting spaces
· Change the roof line/angle on the rifle/pistol range to direct the sound downrange
instead of trapping it above the shooters.
· Add a trap bunker/house on skeet field #1 to take advantage of our new lights. The wobble trap machine we now use for “Strap” can also throw conventional trap, so we just need to do some digging and concrete work to set it in its own bunker.
The Officers and Board wanted to notify all members of this change before the renewals go out in November. Postcards announcing this change are in the mail to all members. The Board of Directors meets the first Thursday of each month at 7 pm in the clubhouse. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings.
