Three-Gun Shoot On Sunday 4/13

Join us Sunday April 13th for our next 3-gun shoot.   Registration is at 9:30 AM, and the shoot starts at 10:00 AM.   It's $10 to shoot, and you'll need the following:

  • Centerfire handgun with 50 rounds of ammo and three magazines
  • Centerfire rifle with 40 rounds of ammo and three magazines
  • Shotgun with 10 slugs and 10 rounds of birdshot

If you'd like to shoot and don't have one or all of the guns, bring some 9mm, .223/5.56, and/or 12 Ga ammo, and someone will lend you the gun(s).   If you don't want to shoot, come out and watch.

New Keycard-Operated Gate

Over the next several weeks we will be installing a gate at the entrance to the parking lot to restrict access to the club.   Effective sometime in October, only members with keycards will be able to drive onto club property.   We plan to issue cards to all active members, but we're still working out the details on the distribution.   Check back here for more information.

We are sending Club news, meeting minutes, and event notices to the membership via email.   If we have your email address on file, you are on the distribution list.   If you haven't been getting the meeting minutes and wish to receive them via email, please use the form on the right (above) to sign up.
