Other Important Information
NEW GATE: Some of you might have noticed the new gate we installed. This gate is to insure that only members and their 2 guest maximum are using the range. We are trying to insure that you as members can get the maximum usage out of the range and not deal with nonpaying members. It has come to our attention that some people in the public think that when the gate is open the range is open to the public, it is not. The only ranges open to the public are Trap, Skeet 5-Stand and the indoor range during the open hours listed and run by a volunteer. So during those time the main gate will be open and we will close the second gate. You will use your key in the second gate like normal. Thanks
