Frequently Asked Questions

How do I open the manual thrower on the trap range?

There is a secure enclosure on the manual clay thrower located on the trap range.  If you want to use it, the combination is the 4 digit code printed on the back of your paper membership card.  Please close and lock the cover when you are done.  The thrower will not clear if you have adjusted the throwing height, simply lower it, then close and lock the cover.

Gate Access when the gate will not open?

Entrance to our facility is restricted, you enter through a controlled access gate. Active members are issued a gate card and code.  If you are unsuccessful swiping the magnetic card, you may use the number keypad.  This is a number printed on the back of that card; the last 4 digits will open the gate if entered in the sequence "1234#" If your card was 9876 you would enter 9876#. 

 

If the gate is not in operation and the metal swing gate is closed and locked, there is a 4 digit number printed on the back of you paper membership card, that is the combination lock code.  

 

Club access is prohibited otherwise, if you are a guest of an active member and coming to the range you need to access the gate with them and sign a one day waiver. (see range rules section for locations)  Non Members may only enter for Member Meetings and public events, during these times the gate will be open, signage on the property will direct you to the clubhouse.

Are non-members allowed to use the club?

Members have access to the club 365 days per year.  All shooting events posted on the Event Calendar are open to the public (non-members) unless otherwise noted.  Monthly "General Membership Meetings" are open to the public.  These meetings are held the 2nd Thursday every month at 8pm.  Also noted in the calendar.

ALL GUESTS MUST SIGN A ONE DAY WAIVER.  If you come to a multi day event, you need a new form signed and dated each day.  Keep the yellow copy for your records.  Waivers are located in the lower range lot kiosk and vestibule to the clubhouse.  If you are shooting a club scheduled event, the range officer for that event will have waivers at the range.

What times are we allowed to shoot?

Gunfire must not start before 10:00am, the exception is a scheduled organized club shooting event.  Several board members live adjacent to the club property; if you shoot early or late you will get a visit from a board member and you will lose range privileges.  General members must not shoot before 10:00am.  Shooting must end (15) minutes before sunset, as posted on every range near the sign in/out sheet.  This time changes every day as determined by the National Weather Service (click here for actual sunset time and subtract 15 minutes)

What is a bowling pin shoot?

Just as the name suggests, we use wooden bowling pins for targets!  This is a structured event and registration is required at the event.  The basic format is as follows: Revolver and semi-auto pistols. 5 classes: stock semi-auto, stock revolver, modified pin gun, snub-nose revolver, and .22 rimfire.  As always you can shoot 5-pin, 8-pin and 9-pin snub-nose and .22 are 5pin only.  Any sight combination and no hardball ammo. You can search the calendar or site for more information and dates.  Note: bowling pin targets are only permitted at club organized events, members may NOT bring bowling pins or use any other non-approved targets.
