Labor Day Weekend Bowling Pin-a-thon

Gentle Shooters,

There is no longer a Labor Day weekend Telethon as there was in my youth, and no, we won’t tie up the range all weekend, In fact, If you intend to shoot bowling pins this weekend, then we need you at the idyllic Airfield Shooting Club range at 9:30 this Saturday September 2nd. You can review the rules here. For specific questions, please contact our assistant adjunct chief pinhead at See you Saturday!

Thanks everyone!  Tom Sanford

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.

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 ( 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 procedures in the range rules.

We are a shooting CLUB. We are dependent upon volunteers to run the club and to help with maintaining and improving our ranges and facilities. I’d like to thank everyone who supported me (and the club) in the last 2 years by coming out to work parties. Unfortunately, there is a small core group of people that made most of the work parties and were responsible for the majority of the work. Please come out and help out at the next work party, given enough members, the work goes quickly. If you’re not careful, you may even find yourself having a good time and may even make a new friend or two! Can’t make the work parties? Contact the MO and let him know if you have any trade skills or hobbies that could be beneficial to the club.

The last thing I’d like to say here is thank Cory Allen for stepping up to assume the role as Maintenance Officer for the club as I move up to become president. I know Cory will do a great job. Please support him as much as possible. It’s a big job that only gets easier and better with help from members.

Thanks again for the support over the last two years. I hope to see you on the range.
