Rules and Policies 

ID Cards - Membership ID Cards must be worn and visible at all times when you are on Club property. You must present your card to the reader every time you enter or leave the property, even if the gate is already open.

Dues - Dues must be paid by December 31st for the following year.  Gate cards will be deactivated on January 31st for non-renewing members.  You may purchase as many years as you like at the current rate. Lifetime Memberships may be purchased for 15 times the current dues rate, subject to Board approval.

After January 31st the dues amount doubles. If the member wants to rejoin after December of that same year, the initiation process begins again.

Changes in Address, email, etc. - If you have any change in home address, email address or phone number, contact the Club Secretary as soon as possible, because the secretary maintains the Club membership database. You can phone, e-mail, or write the secretary.

Alcohol - Alcohol is NOT ALLOWED on our property. Persons found with alcohol or under the influence face suspension and or expulsion.

Smoking in Buildings - Smoking inside buildings is prohibited. This includes the screened porch at the Clubhouse.

Speed Limit - The Club is posted with a 10mph speed limit. You are asked to observe this speed limit not only for safety but to keep down dust. No one wants their gun or case covered with dust. 
Guests - Members are allowed to bring guests to the Club. If you are shooting pistol or rifle, you may bring 2 guests at a time. They must stay with you and you must supervise them individually on the firing line. This means you must be within arm’s length of your guest to prevent inappropriate gun handling. After three guest visits, excluding organized shoots, the individual is expected to join the Club before returning.


For Skeet or Trap you may bring up to four guests at a time, since 5 shooters make up a squad. Again, you must supervise and make sure rules and safety regulations are followed.


If you want to bring a larger group, you must apply for Board approval so we can arrange for additional safety officers to be present.


Trash - Receptacles are located at each range. Dumpsters for bulky items are located at the Pistol, Trap and Skeet ranges. We would appreciate your help emptying the trash cans.


Eyes and Ears - Vision and hearing protection are required on all ranges.


Targets, Brass and Hulls - You are required to remove your targets from the target boards, pick up spent cartridge cases from the bullet ranges and hulls from the shotgun ranges before you leave. Buckets are provided for spent shell cases (all metals). Do not put spent cases in the trash cans.


Harvesting Lead - You may not dig into the berms to harvest lead. You may pick it up by hand if it has been washed to the surface. Do not climb the berms or otherwise disturb the soil.


Automatic Weapons - Fully automatic weapons are not allowed on any range.


Crossbows - You are not allowed to shoot crossbows on Club property.


Handicapped Parking - There is handicapped parking beside the benches at the centerfire range and at the utility pit. You must display a state issued handicap parking permit to park there. Others may use these areas to unload guns and gear but then must move their vehicle to an adjacent parking lot.

Privacy - To protect member privacy, applications are kept under lock and key. Out-of-date applications are shredded.

Club and Clubhouse Rental - Weekends are reserved for our members. The Club facilities may be rented during the week with 30 day’s prior written request and Board approval for $3,000/day. Rental of only part of the Club is available for a lesser cost.

Provisions must be made for an adequate number of Range Safety Officers (RSOs.) Renters are responsible for all target fees incurred and for clean-up.

These rules have been enacted to ensure the safety of all members and their guests.
