Urgent Work Party

There will be a (hopefully brief) work party Sunday afternoon (October 9th) at 2:30. The goal of this work party is to maintain the structural integrity of the 50-yard range shelter. We will be installing joist hangers on some of the joists in the overhead. We will also be removing some of the load (wood) stored in the overhead. We will need bottle jacks (and wood to adjust their height), 4×4 or larger post to jack the joists, come alongs with straps or chains, LARGE pipe wrenches (to twist the joists of necessary), and impact drivers with ¼ inch drivers. If you can help and can bring any of the items above, please let me know. Otherwise, I’ll have to acquire them. I can be reached at XO@airfieldshootingclun.org.

Thanks, and I hope to see you at the range!

Trauma Training For ASC Members and Immediate Family – October 16th!!!!!

Chart

Description automatically generated

Accidents or attacks can happen at anytime.  We do our best to be safe, but to quote Forest Gump “Stuff Happens” and we need to be prepared.  We have an extraordinary opportunity for our club to help its members be prepared.  The club has purchased and installed an AED and emergency tramua kits at the club.  But do you know how to use them?

If not, this is the class for you!  We have coordinated a trauma medical class for you!  HM2 Ricardo Khaleel who teaches combat medics, is offering us an introductory Tactical Combat Casualty Care Class.  No, you are not going to get a certification, but you will walk away with critical safety knowledge which you can use to save lives.

In this 1.5 to 2 hour class we will cover the standard trauma care taught to our nations warfighters.  This will include how to identify and treat various wounds and conditions, AED Basics, and trauma Kit familiarization.

Our member Brandon Jantzen is helping to coordinate HM2 Khaleel who works and lives out of the Little Creek Amphibious Base area so we are keeping the classroom in this area.  Another member John Lowe is offering the use of his training classroom which is in Chesapeake, VA.  We hope that you can attend this valuable training.

This training is available for ASC members and their immediate family.  It is recommended that individuals be at least 15 years old to attend.

You must Pre-register!!!!!!

Work Party and Framing Expertise Needed

Sorry for the late notice, there will be a work party to build new frames this Saturday morning (September 17) at 9:30 a.m. The 50-yard range will be closed for the duration of this work. We will be replacing all of the existing frames. Tools needed include: drills/impact drivers, torx bits, snap lines, miter saws, table saw (for the beveled edge), chisels, hammers, and tape measures. For the light duty, or mobility challenged, we will also be installing grommets on backers. A hammer and utility knife are needed for this job.

If there are any members with expertise in framing, I also need some advice during this work party.

If you have any questions, I can always be contacted at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org.

Thanks, and I hope to see you there,

Labor Day Bowling Pin Match Results

Gentle  Shooters,

We had another nice turnout at our Bowling Pin Match this weekend. Seventeen shooters braved a group of dastardly targets, highlighted by pins wearing what must have been green body armor. That is my story for my scores and I sticking to it. There was a lot of humidity and it appeared to rust up more than one trigger finger. Our toasty, hot weather scores are posted below for your viewing pleasure. Our next match is October 1st.
