RIFLE RANGE UPDATE October 10, 2017
The Rifle Range Committee met and has recommended the following for the safety of our rifle range:
Rifle range will be put behind a locked chain link fence. A Range Safety Officer will be required to unlock range and monitor all shooting. This will require trained volunteers to ensure all range rules are strictly observed. If you wish to become a volunteer Range Safety Officer please contact Lawrence Jenkins, Rifle Range Committee Chairman at his published address/phone. Training and certification will be provided.
Twenty (20) foot high berms are planned to be constructed at 50 and 100 yards.
Benches 1-10 will be for 100 yards and benches 11-16 will be for 50 yards.
Target stand and shooting positions will match. (Bench 1 shoots target 1, bench 10 shoots target 10, etc). Cross range shooting will be prohibited!
All targets must be placed on the target stands provided by the club. (NO targets on the ground!)
Full automatic weapons, armor piercing ammo, and rapid-fire/bump stocks are prohibited!
NO center fire rifles or rifle cartridge pistols will be permitted on any other range!
Approximately 7300 cubic yards of dirt will be required for the project. Several contractors have been solicited; however as of October 9, 2017 no bids for completing the project have been received. It is believed the project will well exceed $50,000 to complete.
Fencing has begun and should be completed in the next couple of weeks.
Safety remains our top priority. Your support for this important range upgrade is greatly appreciated.
