Range Updates and Housekeeping

Range Updates: 1) The 100m range is now open for vehicular traffic, when appropriate. Be smart! If its wet, or soft, you probably shouldn’t be driving down there. If you make the wrong decision, and leave ruts, or otherwise damage the range, you’ll probably be asked to make it right (in one form or another). 2) The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) that was located in the sign-in shed was recently relocated adjacent to the steps on the 50 nearest the 100m range. This was done at the request of the Center, in order for them to have access while using the range. If you open the range, please check to make sure it’s still inside. Housekeeping: Last year, the club placed a quality first aid kit and quality trauma kit in the sign-in shed. If you get a minor cut or scape and need something from the first aid kit, please use whatever is required. Afterwards please notify the MO (mo@airfieldshootingclub.org) of all supplies and/or equipment used so they can be properly restocked. There is little worse than going to a first aid kit in need and finding it depleted. If you require the trauma kit, render assistance following the …

Volunteer Needed 6/24/23

4-H is asking ASC for some volunteer help with the 4-H Southeast District Shoot. (Saturday, 24 June) They’ve asked for seven (7) volunteers. Five of those volunteers will be helping with the rifle firing line, which includes both the 50 Yard and 100 Meter ranges. Two of the volunteers will be helping with the archery competitions. The shooting is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and will continue until approximately 3 p.m. Volunteers should report at least 15 minutes before the firing begins. They can check in with Jim Manning, who will be on the rifle firing line. I will act as a point of contact and I plan to accept the first 7 volunteers.

The SEC Says …

Today is 21 MAY 2023 and here are some important updates regarding club renewals and nominations for the upcoming Board of Directors elections. RENEWALS: Be advised that on 1 JUN a late fee will be applied to those members who have not paid their 2023-2024 club dues. In order to process your membership renewal, two things need to happen: 1) pay your dues, and 2) return a signed renewal form to me. If you have not received your membership card(s) in the mail yet, it is probably because one (or both) of those two things has not happened yet. Renewal forms went out on 30 MAR via email. If you don’t have a copy, check your SPAM/trash folder (some members have reported finding them there) or contact me (secretary@airfieldshootingclub.org or ASCSEC22@gmail.com) and I will send you a pdf copy of your form. Be sure to check the form over carefully and make any changes necessary directly on the form before signing it and sending it back to me. We were made aware that the program we used to generate the renewal forms produced some errors, specifically in the area of the NRA member # & EXP date. Again, make any …

Range Status and Much More— Make Sure Your Read

The Black Flags are Down! The work on both of the ranges is completed. The 50-yard and 100-meter ranges are open for normal operations. Thanks to a few very hard-working members we were able to complete the frame holders (PVC) at 15’, 20’.30’, 25,and 50-yard distances. Lane 10, in front of the south wall of the SRB is permanently closed and should never be used under any conditions. Lane 11, immediately to the right of 10, is restricted for use only during rimfire challenge matches. The reconstruction of the SRB has allowed us to improve the capability of the range. One of the areas that we have improved is the leveling of the ground between the firing points and the berm. Because of this, we can use the same size frame for all distances. As a result, we will be adding more PVC pipe in the ground to accommodate different shooting standards. With the modifications we have changed the rules for the SRB, which only allowed shooting at certain distances to now allowing Target Frames to be placed anywhere there is PVC pipe in the ground. With the SRB, you are reminded to pay special attention to where your round …

50yd and 100m Range Status and Work Party Part 2

The 50 and100 are currently closed. The contractor has not finished putting the facing wood on the concrete block on the SRB. That should be completed Monday afternoon/evening. The 50 (including the SRB should open Tuesday morning. But be aware that the 4-H center will be training their counselors Tuesday and Wednesday. When they are finished the 50 will be available with VERY limited selection of target placement. There are 4 or 5 frames available at 15 feet, and one point with a frame available at 25 and 50 yards. The grading/seeding and strawing is complete on the 100. The only thing left to do there is place pipes for the target frames. We plan to rent a mechanized multi-purpose device that has an auger attachment, this Saturday to dig the rest of the holes. This work party will begin at 9:00 Saturday may 20th and run concurrently with the board meeting. We need members with transfer (flat ended) shovels, garden rakes, and wheelbarrows. Now to address one of the most misunderstood details of the work that has been done: There will be NO (zero, zip, nada) topsoil placed on top of the granite screenings on the 50. These screening …
