You may have noticed some construction work taking place in the wooded area to the North of the Rifle Range. The Board has now designated this area as the Action Shooting Woods and 400 YD Range.
There are 4 Ranges: Ranges 1 and 2 are in the small ravines surrounded by woods. Ranges 3 and 4 are the large Bay and the adjacent 400 YD Range. This area is primarily a Competition and Training area. We have been conducting Multi-Gun Matches back here for several years now. But it is finally developed enough to open it for provisional use by the membership starting January 1.
Access to this area is controlled by a locked chain across the entrance road just North of the Conex Storage Container. The Board has decided that only approved shooters should be given keys to this area. There are two special orientations scheduled.
Saturday, December 8 from 8 to 11 AM and Sunday, December 9 from 2 to 4 PM. The chain will be open; come all the way back to Ranges 3 and 4. You will need to bring your rifle, ammo, and eye and ear protection and be prepared to shoot. In addition to the explanation of the Range Rules and proper use of these ranges you will be required to demonstrate safe gun handling and distance shooting skills.
If interested contact Ted Smethers at email@example.com to RSVP.
Below are the Range Rules for this area to be added to your Members Manual.
