We as a club would like to make it known to our members. 

If you have young children or grandchildren regardless how far they live from you, that you feel are mature enough to start teaching the fundamentals of the use of firearms as well as the understanding of how to safely handle and respect the firearm, we encourage you to bring them along with you to the range.

Other Club Information


During our March Board of Directors meeting at the range we had a membership discussion  concerning the guest policy that we had eliminated and the concerns of our members.  We invited the members to come and brain-storm a new policy.  It was brought up by the members that attended about creating a guest pass and the cost was proposed by these same members.  The board voted and adopted the $100 per calendar year guest pass that would allow our members that purchase the pass to bring guests as many times as they would like, instead of 1 guest 1 time each.  It still limits guests to 1 per visit per guest pass, however it does not limit the number of times that a guest can come to the range with the member.

Later we discussed the membership in general, more importantly just who was covered by the members membership.  It used to be that the member their spouse or significant other and any child under the age of 21 that shares the members address.   We expanded the definition of who is included with the membership, this now includes the afore mentioned members of the family as well as members of the family that live more than 100 miles from the member.  These family members include children and grandchildren, siblings, parents, in-laws.  There is no limit on the number of times that these individuals may be brought to the range, as they will not normally be visiting on a regular basis.
