Club Members: Remember to introduce yourselves to our New Members when you see them. Let’s make them feel welcome to our fraternity of sports enthusiasts.
INAPPROPRIATE TARGETS: We are again having a few of our member’s using FORBIDDEN TARGETS on some of our ranges. We don’t want to see anyone injured, maimed, or killed. Everyone has received a copy of the Rules for each of our Ranges and they are also posted on each of the Ranges. If you are seen and reported to the Board, you could lose your membership privileges.
ROAD IMPROVEMENTS: Between the Township Road Commissioner & the Club, our long entrance road has been graded, had drainage ditches added, had additional gravel added, and treated (tree sap) to help keep the dust down. The tree sap will not harm your vehicle and will not be pulled up onto the vehicle’s paint by driving. PLEASE USE THE ROAD, NOT THE DITCHES FOR DRIVING! LET’S ALSO TRY TO KEEP THE GRAVEL ON THE ROAD (drive down the middle of the road) AND OUT OF THE DRAINAGE DITCHES. Keeping your speed down also helps.
