Firearms Range News
A couple of incidents have occurred at the range that are cause for immediate concern – one violation so severe that if the guilty party is identified, they will be expelled from the club.Someone brought a steel target to the rifle range, and shot it full of holes using armor-piercing ammunition. Foremost, armor-piercing ammo is strictly forbidden on club grounds – it does not have to be fired, simply having it in your possession is against the rules and subjects the violator to expulsion from the club! Secondly, your $175 or $150 annual dues do not provide you with concierge or maid service. There have been a number of incidences of members not cleaning up after themselves that go beyond simple forgetfulness. On July 16th there were several dozen spent shotgun shells (red) scattered all through the grass in front of two of the trap stanchions. There was also an empty clay box, which did have a number of green spent shells in it, laying in the grass near a stanchion. You are provided with trash cans at each stanchion for a reason. When finished using the range, pick up your spent shells and put them in the trash barrel. Then return the trash barrel to where it belongs – up on the stanchion. REMEMBER – TREAT CLUB PROPERTY AS IF YOU OWNED IT... BECAUSE YOU DO!

Dues Increase – Explanation and Rationale
The annual 10 gun raffle the club holds every year is typically our largest revenue generator. $50 of the dues you pay goes towards 5 tickets, of which you can either sell (to recoup your $50) or keep for yourself. Given this, Denny Henninger, our illustrious Honorary Trustee who has take responsibility for the raffle for the past few years, has a couple points he would like to make. #1. You or the person you have sold the tickets to cannot win unless their stubs are returned prior to the October, 2023 General Membership meeting, when the drawing is held. Get those stubs in.#2. The five tickets you are required to purchase each year is the BARE MINIMUM. You can help the club raise money and defray expenses by selling more than 5. Please consider selling as many as you can. Additional tickets can be acquired, free of up-front charge.
