First, please accept my apologies for the delay, but renewal forms went out last night/this morning. Please note that I have since discovered that the program we used to generate the renewal forms may have imported the wrong NRA member #/EXP date. Please verify this information, including any personal information (address, phone #, email, etc.) that may have changed, and annotate the correct information on the form prior to returning it. All other information appears to be correct. With specific regards to the expiration date on the current (2022-2023) membership cards, expiration date will temporarily be extended to 15 APR, the date of the next Board meeting. If an additional extension is approved, another email will go out with that notification. Again, please accept my apologies for the delay and the errors identified above. ASC SEC
Gentle Shooters, Yea, they are letting us do that shoot at the bowling pins thing again! And right now, it is the only way you get to shoot at anything from a distance of 25 feet at our range. On behalf of the bowling pin match directors of the Airfield Shooting Club, it is gives me profound joy to announce the commencement of the 2023 Bowling Pin Match season. You, yes you, Gentle Shooter are invited to the Airfield Shooting Club range in sumptuous Wakefield Virginia this Saturday for a 9AM set up. Don’t be foolish this April First, go to the pin match. Ammunition is much more available now at fair(er?) prices and you have not shot this match since last year! But wait, I don’t know the rules or how to get there. No problem, the airfieldshootingclub.org website has directions to the range as well as a complete listing of the rules for the match. Ok, but I have more questions. No sweat, just email our associate, adjunct, intern pinhead at firstname.lastname@example.org. Not sure about the email thing? Call Art at home (948) 867-5309. See you Saturday. Steven

Good afternoon folks! The board just finished its February board meeting and we are happy to announce that we think we have a path forward. The board approved two contracts to conduct necessary range repair/maintenance. The first contract we need to execute is for the removal of the lead from the berms. This contract is expected to be awarded to a company, MT2 to facilitate. The 2nd contract is to a company for the repair of the Short Range Berm and build up of the 50yd and 100m ranges. The removal of lead is required before we can repair the berms for a number of reasons. The repair cannot start until the lead removal is complete. Because the Airfield Conference Center actually own the property we need our proposal to approved their Board. The new Director of the Center was present at our meeting and will try to get it completed next week. She is in agreement with the ASC Board’s direction. We don’t have specific dates as this is just breaking. We are hoping to have MT2 out in March to remove the lead. We are hoping to know dates next week or perhaps early the following week. It …
