2015 July 28th Info Items

Several items of interest for Club members and participants.

  1.  New (1st year) Members are reminded that the 10 hour work time obligation needs to be completed by 31 August to retain membership.  To get work time in, turn up at our August 1st work party, help run a scheduled event or contact a range chairman for additional items.  There are 26 new members who have not yet completed their work time requirement.
  2.  Membership renewals will be mailed out to all eligible members on 1 September.  Please get these returned early to avoid having to pay a late fee!
  3. We have a work party this Saturday Aug 1st beginning at about 8:00 AM.  We want to recover the firewood that is inside our property line next to Route 44 and Flagg Hill road.  This is a large job and plenty of help is needed.
  4. On 9 August there will be an Archery Target match at the target range.  Targets will be set at 20 yards.  The match will start at 9:00 AM.
  5. On Saturday 1 August there will be a Jack Perretti “Wipe Your Eye” Memorial Trap shoot at the Trap range.  This event starts at 9:00 AM.

  8. Several Club members wanted to add a Sunday Trap shoot to our schedule.  Beginning this Sunday(Aug 2nd) we will run Trap shoots every Sunday beginning at 9:00 AM.
  9. We are in the planning/estimating stages of installing a septic system and well.  The ultimate goal is to have indoor toilet facilities at the Clubhouse, Trap range and a central facility to replace the current outhouse.  Details of this installation will be discussed during our next club meeting.
  10. We are in the process of renewing our gravel permit.  Surveying was just completed and we meet with the Town this coming month.  All of this is needed to go ahead with the planned Rifle range project.
