July 2018 Indoor Range Update

There has been a lot of activity on the range for the last 6 months. The good news:

  • The air handling system has been analyzed and design changes were implemented. This seems to have had a positive effect on the air flow. 
  • Member using the range have made a great effort in keeping the area clean. Thank you.
  • The limited use of bays #1 and #8 has reduced the wall damage to almost zero.
  • Members have contacted me when a repair is needed. Thank you!
  • There has been a great reduction of the need to redo target carriers
  • Thanks to the help of John Connolly, the A/C unit was installed. Please don't touch! It is set at the low 70s.
  • To date the range has sold over 4,388 paper targets, turning over $877.60 to the club's general fund

Thanks to All,
Al Croteau, Indoor Range Director

July Facilities Update

Due to the overwhelming outpouring of new members we have been able to do large projects at ASC.

Projects have included building a secondary trap range that we are still in the process of completing. We are building a back stop and will be installing loom and grass seed. We have also installed new lighting on the secondary trap range for night time shooting.

A new wall between the archery range and the secondary trap range has been installed.

Plans have also been made to install a new indoor archery range, to be started in October of 2018.

We had a spring clean up that went over all very well and it was well attended by the membership

Other smaller projects have been going on throughout the year to keep the club in current shape. Keeping up with the large demands of ASC members.

Anyone willing to help should contact Mike Pierce at

Hope to see you all at the club.

Yours Truly
Mike Pierce, Facilities Director

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.
