I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend! Some doubted that we could successfully pull off a major work party concurrently with a Bowling Pin Match (Steven!!). I thought, despite my poor shooting, that both were tremendous successes and wanted to thank all who participated in Saturday’s activities. The work party crew did a great job building beautiful new frames for every possible position on the ranges. Let’s do our best to keep these frames intact! If you find someone, carelessly or otherwise, shooting the frames, please point it out to them. If the problem persists, please contact the Provost. Speaking of the Provost, I’d like to extend a special Thank You to Mark for running a well-organized work party, allowing us to run the Pin Match as usual. I’m tentatively planning a range clean-up work party for some time next month. I’m planning on weed/brush trimming and general clean up. Thanks again, Art Schoner ASC XO
Work Party! Need service hours? Tired of hassling with old dilapidated frames? Come out and support your club and earn some service hours next Saturday September 4th at 10:00. We will be rebuilding all of the frames and replacing some of the pipes in the ground. So, bring your basic carpentry tools, including (but not limited to) circular saws and miter saws, and drills/drivers. Send me a note at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org if you happen to have a power post hole digger, or auger, that you’re willing to bring. Please be aware, in order to get this done as soon as possible and minimize range down time, this work party will run concurrently with the September bowling pin match, so bring your eye and ears! I hope to see you next Saturday, for one or both activities! Art Schoner ASC XO
Gentle Shooters, Just a reminder that we will have a Bowling Pin Match on Saturday, July 3rd at 9:30 at Airfield Shooting Club range.

Individual questions may be directed to your assistant pinhead at Art.Schoner@airfieldshootingclub.org. Art

We have an opportunity to get more bowling pins from a different lane. I’d like to put out an email to the bowling pin list to get some of our shooters to help move the pins. We can get the pins after 4 PM at AMF Chesapeake Lanes 112 Medical Parkway E Chesapeake VA 23320. I’d say lets meet at 5. That gives them time to open up. Once loaded, we will drive the pins to the warehouse at Gordon Paper, 5713 Ward Ave Virginia Beach, VA 23455 for storage. We learned one thing from the last pin pickup. Any member that has a hand truck, please bring it. Questions please contact Steven at email@example.com or (757) 560-7311.

Members, We will be updating the combinations to the club facilities next Saturday May 22nd, 2021. At that point you will need to utilize the new combination issued with your new membership card. Membership cards went out in the past couple weeks, and may be arriving throughout next week, which contributed to the boards decision to postpone the combination change until the 22nd. Until then the combination from last year will work. If you haven’t paid for your ASC membership yet for the year, or received an invoice certainly reach out to us (email@example.com). Happy Shooting !
We are looking for 5 ASC Members who want to volunteer to help RSO for the 4-H SE District Match on Saturday, June 26th, 2021. They will assist on the 50 and 100 yard rifle ranges. If we have more than 5, then I can stagger the shift times and a few can assist with setup/teardown before or after the match. They will earn time for ASC service hours and it would really help the SC 4-H Swampshooters out. I know it is early, but I would like to know by mid May (5/14/2021). Please email Fletcher Duntan if you are interested in volunteering (fletcherdunton [at] gmail.com).
