Upcoming Schedule 2020


Due to COVID-19, we will have extra safety protocols in place, including, but not limited to:

1) Face masks must be worn at all times with the exception of when you are on the line shooting.  We will have disposable face masks for sale if you forget to bring one with you.   Face masks are also required for parents, spectators and coaches.

2) Hand sanitizer will be available both on the range and in the smallbore room.

3) Social distancing will be strictly enforced.

4) There will be no sharing of rifles, gloves or other gear during the night.  If you need to switch out any equipment, there will be a designated table in the smallbore room to place the used gear on.  Do not use any gear from this table.

5) Most importantly, if you have had contact with anyone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19 or if you are feeling ill, have a cough or fever - do not come to the range. 

If you are a new member, you must take our new shooter safety class first.  These classes are scheduled for Thursday, October 8th and 15th.  If you have RSVP’d for a class, then you will be receiving an email with more details.  

The membership fees and ammo will stay the same at $75 per junior ($150 max per family) and $4/box of .22lr
