MEMBER RESPONDS - Just a note of appreciation for the recent NRA Membership requirement. Surely by now, anybody who is a gun owner must realize what would have happened to our gun rights should Hillary have been elected. We simply wouldn't have any, period. The NRA has proven to be our most effective means of striking back at those who would ignore our Constitutional Rights. It has been proven so again and again. Bill Glaze NRA Benefactor Member

CONTRIBUTIONS NEEDED - If you have good photos taken at the Club that you are willing to share, please email them to Lil. If your shots include people, you must obtain their permission to publish them. If your shots include minors, permission must be obtained from a parent. No photos of members on the ranges will be posted unless they are wearing proper hearing and eye protection. Please send photos as separate files attached to your email message. Include names and the date the photo was taken.
LAWNMOWERS - The lawnmowers are for cutting grass, NOT for traveling
to and from the target boards. If you have mechanical problems with a mower, park it and call someone on the Equipment Maintenance Team. Their phone numbers
are on the Directory page of this website.
GOLF CARTS - The golf carts may be used to hang targets. Always return them to the proper locations. Follow the printed instructions to recharge them.
DRINKS and SNACKS - You must pay for the drinks and snacks you get from the clubhouse, trap and skeet houses or the rifle range. They are 50 cents each. Put your money in the plastic containers inside each refrigerator.

"Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the current generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it." - John Q Adams - 6th President
According to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story: "The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers." - (Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833)
