Outdoor Range Closure Update

We are anticipating that the outdoor range will reopen on Sunday, September 13th for the use of members.

If this date changes, we will post an update accordingly, so please be sure to check for an update before using the range.

8/26 Range Closure Update

The trap field lead reclamation will be finishing up by the end of this week. Skeet will be back to normal beginning on Thursday, August 27th.

The Outdoor Range will be closed to ALL shooting beginning on Monday, August 31st. Please check here for the reopening date.

Thank you for your cooperation.

8/18/15 Update on Trap Field Maintenance

The trap field will continue to remain closed for personal use until further maintenance. The crew will be working this Saturday (8/15) and continue into next week.

Sunday Trap and Wednesday trap will shoot as normal. Please note Thursday Skeet on 8/20 is cancelled.

Reclamation is going well, but each 55-gallon drum of lead takes about two hours, and that's why things are going so slow.

Tuesday Night Archery Cancelled for July 21st and 28th

Tuesday Night Archery is cancelled on July 21st and 28th.

Update on Trap and Outdoor Range Maintenance

This is a quick update on the range reclamation projects. The parts for the screening machine have finally arrived, and the machinery will begin to work again on Monday July 20th.

The Trap Field will be closed for daily personal use until further notice. Trap, Skeet & 5-Stand will function normal on Wednesday and Thursday nights as usual. When we are within one day of being complete, we will let you know when the Trap Field will be open for personal use, and the Outdoor Range will be affected.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Indoor Range Update

With the summer due, the A/C unit will be installed at the indoor range. Please note that the adjustment knobs are removed, as the unit is plunged into a temperature controlled outlet. There no adjustments that can be made on the unit and the controls should be left alone.

Additionally, the range doors must always remain closed if the air handling system is to operate as designed. If the range is too hot, then one should shoot elsewhere.

Massachusetts State ATA Champions

Last week, we had two big winners from ASC at the Massachusetts State ATA shoot:

  • Richard Bruce, 1st place, "C" class singles
  • Erik Anderson, 1st place, "D" class singles

Congratulations!
