Range Hours and usage:

Rifle, Handgun and Archery ranges are open for members only from 9am until ˝ hour before sunset (yes that’s when the sun drops below the horizon) (or when the game commission says it’s sundown in the regulations book).   Remember that more than one shooter can use the range at one time, please share.    Make sure that you are shooting at the dirt back stop.  Please observe the posted shooting times.  Safety First!  Shoot into the dirt backstops.  There are houses and hunters behind the ranges.  Clean up your brass and garbage, we do not hire cleaning people.  Do not shoot at glass or objects that will leave sharp remains on the ground. 

Note:  Rifle and Pistol ranges are closed during trap and skeet shooting for safety reasons.

 

Unsafe shooting will result in membership suspension.  State Police will be called if unsafe practices result in damage to club or neighboring properties.   Ranges and club property are under video surveillance.
