Adios Winners

Most times when we shoot Trap, we play an elimination game that we call “Adios”. We have recently made it customary to take a photo of the winner wearing the poncho and sombrero. The last four winners pictured are: Peter C, Kip S, Jeff D, and Steve R. We’re not really sure that they’re happy they won.

February 2018 Security Update

We are still having problems with members not being familiar with the range rules which could cause a safety problem. Please stay abreast of the club rules to avoid any problems.

I noticed that there is not a first aid kit in the indoor range. I have ordered one and will install it in the range.

Updates to Club By-Laws and Rules

Dear Members,

In recent weeks, two significant changes have been made to both the Club By-Laws and Rules. They are:

  1. On Feb 1, 2018, the Board of Director's voted to prohibit the use or possession on bump stock and/or trigger crank devices on club property (see Range Rules dated 02/01/18, section 6.09). The Rules of the Club can be downloaded in the members' section, or by clicking here.
  2. On February 8, 2018, after the bylaw amendment process having been strictly adhered to including proper notice, the Members voted to amend Article III, Membership, by removing the requirement for a two year restriction period before a spouse of a member or son/daughter age 18 to 21 of a member may join without payment of the entrance fee. They intend it to encourage family members to join the Club together (see Bylaws, dated 02/08/18, Article III, paragraph 3 and 3a). The By-Laws of the Club can be downloaded in the members' section, or by clicking here.

We urge all members to fully read and review the Club Rules and By-Laws to remain familiar with them.
