match being held. Only the range on which the match is being held is closed to "open" shooting. The rest of the ranges are open. The only exceptions to this are when the IR 50/50 benchrest match is being held on range #1, range #2 will be closed. Also, range #1 is closed when the high-power rifle silhouette match is being held on range #2. These adjoining ranges are closed for safety reasons since there is no safety berm between range #1 and range #2.

Bylaws Meeting In The Works
We will be holding a meeting sometime this spring, to consider possible changes to the club bylaws. If you have ideas or suggestions, we'd like to hear about them. Please contact any one of the club officers, or call the club information line and leave a message. Contact numbers are listed below.

New Members
We welcomed ten new members at the April meeting. They are Steven Bowdle, J. R. Cage, Ed and Cindy Cones, Bryan Essary, Dan Flora, Claude Hodges, Steven Hudson, George McDaniel, and Ronny Ulmer. Glad to have you with us, folks!
Please note that all new members must attend the mandatory range and safety orientation before using the range. You are not a fully qualified member until you attend the orientation.
Also, don't forget that all new members are entitled to shoot in one club match per shooting discipline free of charge.
