Members are asked to please pick up your brass and deposit it in the buckets provided when you are done shooting on the rifle/pistol range. Leaving the brass on the ground creates a hazard for the people mowing!
Members are asked to please use the envelopes provided to pay for range use money. Also note how many rounds and what caliber you shot on the range.
ONLY CLUB MEMBERS MAY PURCHASE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. Our liquor license does not allow beer or liquor to be removed from the club grounds (NO ROADIES). Anyone caught removing beer or liquor from the club grounds will face disciplinary action before the board of Directors up to and including dismissal from the club.
When you come out to the club for any event, make sure you sign the membership book located inside of the back room of the club. The club by-laws require you as a member to sign the book at least 12 times per year. You agreed to obey the by-laws when you joined the club!
