Fall Clean Up Work Party -Correction

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween.  But now that the trick-or-treating is done, it’s time to get ready for the next major event, the Fall Clean Up Work Party!  It’s scheduled for SUNDAY November 7th at 9:30. Don’t forget Day Light Savings Time ends that morning so we fall back one hour. We’ll be cleaning up the 50 yd, 100 m, and side berms, as well as general range clean up.  Hopefully, we’ll also have new backers to grommet with our new grommet press.  So come out and help beautify your club’s ranges and get your service hours in.  Please bring string trimmers, chain saws, brush cutters, open utility trailers, and whatever other tools you have that may help.  Don’t forget your PPE. I apologize for my inability to get the details included, and then correct.  (Subconsciously, I think this was a method to bombard everyone with emails in order to get as many members as possible.)  Again, sorry for the fiasco! If you have any questions, email me at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org.

Project Appleseed @ASC Saturday 10/23/21

This Saturday, Project Appleseed will be hosting a one-day event for Airfield Shooting Club members and their guests on the 100M range from 8am to 4pm.  The family friendly event is open to all ages and skill levels.  The event has two focus items – marksmanship and history.   Students will learn basic rifle marksmanship in different shooting positions (akin to CMP or NRA highpower), as well as hear the story of April 19, 1775, highlighting the importance of the Second Amendment and how marksmanship is woven within the cultural DNA of our nation. There are still a few slots open.  For questions or more information, reach out to Jesse Espe at jesse.espe@gmail.com.

ASC Pistol Class October 30

On October 30, 2021, the Airfield Shooting Club (ASC) is hosting a Pistol Class including sec- tions on the Law of Concealed Carry and Self Defense and Methods of Concealed Carry. The ASC Pistol Class is intended to provide hands-on orientation to the safe handling of handguns and includes both classroom and live-fire training. Our instructors teach both revolver and semi-auto sections in this class. In addition to the ASC Pistol Class, over an hour long session is scheduled with Timothy W. Drewry, a Virginia licensed attorney, who will discuss some of the legal aspects of carrying concealed firearms and self defense in Virginia. The attorney is a certified pistol instructor too and usually remains with the class until the very end so that he may answer questions which may arise. An additional segment of the course will include a brief discussion of some of the firearms appropri- ate for concealed carry and the holsters or other devices which might be suited for carrying a firearm concealed. Please note that the ASC Pistol Class, including the legal and concealed carry sections, is a non-NRA course, but it satisfies the handgun competency requirements set forth in Virginia Code § 18.2-308.02 (B). …

Work Party Thank You!

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 September 4!

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  

ASC Combinations

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 (secretary@airfieldshootingclub.org). Happy Shooting !
