July 2017 Newsletter

Happy Independence Day!  We hope you celebrated freedom and the foundation of our Republic by getting out to the range.  The Club is publishing this newsletter online only.  Starting with the October newsletter, we will be going entirely paperless.  There will be a few paper copies of the newsletter posted at the indoor range or outdoor range, but the membership voted to eliminate the postage, printing and mailing costs for our normal business.  Exceptions will be for the Annual Ballot (December) Roster (April) and Annual Reorganization (September) newsletters or if there is a vote to amend the Club Constitution or bylaws.  With that, here is the news:

Junior Program Announcement

Ten X Youth Shooting Program

We are planning to soft launch our Youth Shooting program at the end of August, with an official launch in September. The group will shoot on the second and fourth Fridays of each month, starting at 6:30pm and running until 8:00pm, give or take, based on attendance. In order for this very important initiative to be successful we are going to need several instructors, as well as range officers and other volunteers to make the program work. If you have experience as a three-position shooter, or if you are an NRA Certified Rifle Instructor, we most definitely need your help. We also need certified NRA Range Safety Officers whose only responsibility will be to run/monitor the range. If you aren’t a certified instructor or you are not a certified range officer, we still need your help. Members can help to get the range set up, help the young shooters to set up and break down, etc.

 

There will be an initial meeting of […]
