Our Club recently lost Life Member CALVIN (CAL) LOSER after a prolonged battle against cancer. Cal was the Club’s Gun Show Director and a strong supporter of all of the Club’s programs. The Chillicothe Sportsmen’s Club will miss him. The Club expresses its sincere condolences to his loving widow, Carol.
THE PISTOL AND 200 YARD RANGE’S WILL BE INTERMITTIENTLY CLOSED FOR BERM WORK DURING JULY WHEN THE BULLDOZER IS PRESENT. WATCH FOR THE RANGE CLOSED SIGN. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
The Club has experienced some problems with a few members forgetting to relock the gate when leaving the grounds. Please take the time to relock the gate upon leaving. Thank you.
