January 2018 Community Relations Update

The children’s Christmas party was held on Dec 17. A great time was had by all,about 30 children attended. Many thanks to Frosty The Snowman (Al Croteau), Santa’s Elf (Talia Pasco) and the special guest Santa (Kevin O’Leary). A special thanks to Donna Rochon for the awesome Snowman cake, Frank for the treats from the kitchen, Guy for the fruit punch and Jimmy for taking pictures. This event would not have happened without Brad and his email blasts.

January 2018 Security Update

I still receive complaints about members not adhering to range rules. The main violations are those of members bringing in guests and allowing them to use multiple shooting ports and not staying within arms length of their guests. These are range rule violations and will be investigated and the results will be brought before the Board of Directors.

Please read your range rules to avoid any safety issues that could turn into unintended consequences.

January 2018 Indoor Range Update

For the year 2017 the club sold 6,232 targets and about 100 sets of ear protection, returning $1266.59 to the general fund.

In 2017 we replaced both 7.5hp blower motors and kept the older one as a spare.

A new delayed start system for the blowers was installed. This it is hoped will increase the life of the blower motors To date, there are over 400 hours of run time on the motors.

Both heating systems were serviced in 2017.

There was a great increase in members calling or e-mailing problems at the range.
