Range and Match News
The new plinking range is now open! In fact, lower ranges 2 through 7 are all open. This also means that upper ranges 3 and 4 are closed permanently.
There is a huge list of people to thank for their hard work on the plinking range. James Squires would like to express his thanks to the following members for work they did: Steve Ashley, George Craig, Bill Duncan, Rex Gismond, Bill Harris III, Pat Holsted, Gerald Kitchen, Kendall Marshall, Derrick & Donovan Marshall, Larry Morgan, Bill Morris, Leroy Squires, John Watkins, and Jim Wood. Thanks to you and to all of the other club members who helped to get this range ready for use.
Also, there was a proposal at the June club meeting to allow some law enforcement agencies to use our range for training purposes. This would require a change to the bylaws, and insurance coverage may be an issue. We would also need to ensure that training would not interfere with any club activities. This idea is going to be explored in much more detail before a formal motion is presented to the club.
Finally, the next air rifle match (see your match schedule) may have an earlier start time. Please call the range information line for details before driving out to the range.
And don't forget that we will be holding a speed steel challenge match on October 15 at 8:00 a.m. at the range. Sponsors are currently being sought. For details about the match, contact Pat Holstead at 766-4942 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the web site www.shooters101.com.
Bylaws Meeting Held
A bylaws meeting was held after the June club meeting. The updated bylaws will be sent in a separate mailing to all club members.

The CCW class has been cancelled due to a lack of interest. Anyone who has already paid will receive a full refund. We will attempt to schedule the class again at a later date.
