Please Observe All Range Rules
Someone has been using high-powered rifles on lower range 2. This range is for smallbore rifles only. Anyone observed violating the club range and safety rules is subject to dismissal from the club. New members, make sure that you know what type of firearm may be used on each range. If you don't know, read your bylaws.
We'd like to remind club members not to move target stands closer to the sheds or pads. All target stands must be placed directly in front of a designated berm or backstop. Failure to comply with this rule, or any other range rule, may result in revocation of your membership.
Also, if you decide to burn trash in the barrels on the range, please check first to make sure a state, county or local burn ban is not in effect.
