Member Newsletter Spring 2024

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE
Winter is finally gone and we think the monsoons will be subsiding shortly. That being the case we will see an increase in club and range usage. We need to remind everyone that the range rules are in place to ensure the safety of all those who use our facility. Unfortunately on Easter Sunday we had two members who decided to use the ranges even though there are several signs on the property stating that on holidays our facilities are closed or we close early. This information is also explained during the safety orientation, so there is no excuse for this infraction. Both members have been sent letters explaining their infraction and informing them that their memberships have been terminated. Everyone should be aware that our lease with the County has certain restrictions that we have to comply with.We are currently in the process to find a few retired members who are willing to take over operation of our Trap program. If you have the time and are willing to spend some time helping our club generate income so that we can keep upgrading our facilities please contact any one of our members running the trap program. We are obtaining quotes at this time to put a new roof on the 100 yard rifle shed and also to replace our baffle system which is in need of repair.Have a safe and healthy Spring and SummerRegards, Charlie
**OBEY THE RULES – BE SAFE – NOT SORRY!**
The club has 15 members volunteering their free time as Range Officers. A typical 4 hour tour ensures that all range rules are being observed by the members. Members interested in becoming a range officer would be highly welcomed and should attend a Range Officer meeting which is held every 3rd Sunday at the club house at 10 to 11 AM, If you are interested see Rich Balsamo : Chief Range Officer
