UPDATE - The regular Wednesday trapshoot is cancelled for 2/18 due to the weather and road conditions. Also, no one will be at the club to process membership renewals.
Due to the cancellation of tonight's trapshoot and the resulting loss of opportunity for members to renew memberships, we have decided to extend the renewal period by one week. The final day to renew memberships for 2015 will be Friday, March 6th. That will give two extra opportunities for renewal, Wednesday March 4th and Friday, March 6th. Please see the posting below for times.
A change to the membership renewal process has been made for the 2015 membership year. Memberships and renewals will no longer be available at Mike's Gun Shop nor at Gilbert's Gun Shop. All memberships and renewals will have to be processed at the club. To help facilitate this memberships can be renewed or purchased at the club on Wednesday afternoons and evenings beginning at 3:00pm. They can also be processed either before or after the regular monthly business meetings on the first Friday of every month. The business meetings start at 7:30pm and memberships should be available approximately one hour before the meeting begins and then after the meeting. In addition, some special times have been set up to give members more flexibility. There will be someone on the club grounds to process memberships on Saturday, January 31st and on Saturday, February 28th. Times for both days will be from 10:00am until 2:00pm.
Election of the club officers for 2015 took place at the December business meeting. The entire slate of 2014 officers were re-elected to another term for 2015.
||1st Vice President
||2nd Vice President
The annual club dinner will be held on January 3rd at the VFW Hall at 104 East Second Street. Those members having attended 7 of more monthly business meetings will have their meals provided by the club. The cost for members not having attended 7 or more meetings and any guests attending the dinner will be $18. A cash bar will be available at the member's expense. Please RSVP by email if you are planning to attend so that we may plan accordingly.
The trap ranges will be closed for the holidays on both Wednesday, December 24th and on Wednesday, December 31st.
The Friends of the NRA will be hosting a banquet on February 7th, 2015 at the American Legion Hall on Versailles Road. The doors will open at 5:00pm and there will be raffles and silent and live auctions. Cost to attend is $40 per person.
At our most recent monthly business meeting, Sept. 5, 2014, a change was enacted by popular vote of the members in attendance. The officers and Board of Directors wanted to inform the membership of the change as soon as possible in order to minimize any possible inconvenience. It has been decided that fully automatic weapons and zip guns will no longer be allowed on club ranges. The members in attendance felt that fully automatic weapon were not appropriate for our facility and so, they will no longer be allowed to be fired on club property. This change will be effective immediately. As with all club rules anyone found in violation will be asked to leave and may be subject to disciplinary action.
E-Mail Reminders - As a new service to our members we have begun sending out emails regarding upcoming events and range closures. We understand that many of you drive quite
a distance to use our facilities and it can be frustrating to arrive at the range only to find it closed for an organized event. In an effort to reduce the times this happens
