Yet Another Milestone Passed & Other News

posted Jun 15, 2020, 5:56 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Jun 15, 2020, 5:59 PM ]

Hello once again. Sometimes I almost feel like I have a blog going here rather than an informational website. It is what it is and today we have more good news to share. You've seen the plexiglass partitions going up everywhere from banks to restaurants to nail salons (my wife told me). We have had the lexan sheets separating benches for quite some time already and after full consideration was given, we decided that all benches will be available for shooting. That means also that there is no longer a one hour time limit being imposed whenever people are waiting for a bench! It also means that our daily membership fee will return to its normal $7.00. We are still asking our members and visitors to observe proper social distancing. For KSC, that means that the Clubhouse will continue to be off limits, spotting scopes will remain stored. Sand bags and lead sleds are available upon request and, of course, our extensive cleaning regimen will continue to be followed.

In other news, all of the berms received significant facelifts recently. Nearly 200 yards of sand were trucked in to make the 25 and 50 yard berms higher as well as providing them with a needed refurbishing. The canopy over the firing line also got some attention in the form of insulated, reflective sheathing to reduce some of the summer sun's radiant heating. Just another example of how we continue to strive to make your visit to Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. as enjoyable as possible.

Before I end this update, let me just say that KSC makes every effort to keep our website up-to-date and accurate. Sometimes things happen however and we're unable to respond in as timely a manner as we'd like. The short version....it's always a good idea to call ahead to make sure the range is open and to confirm the hours of operation.

One Step Closer to full Operations

posted Jun 9, 2020, 7:25 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

Greetings once more to our KSC family members. As the title implies, we are taking another step towards having the range operate with a full schedule. For some time now we have been open from Thursday thru Sunday during our 'normal' hours of 9am to 6:30pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends. Effective June 10th, our phase in process continues and the range will be in operation on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm with possible extensions to the 2pm closing time depending upon the number of people utilizing the range. The Staff and Officers of Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone for their understanding and cooperation throughout these very interesting times. We are looking forward to having everyone join us for a day of shooting and enjoying our Wisconsin summer weather.

Range Operations Update

posted May 18, 2020, 11:51 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated May 18, 2020, 1:54 PM ]

Greetings all! These past couple of months have been interesting to say the least. With the government rescinding their stay-at-home orders, many businesses are reopening their doors and trying to get back to work. We too are trying to return to full operational status but that will not happen immediately. In the very short term, we will be open on Friday thru Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend and our hours will return to normal i.e. 9am to 6:30pm on Friday and 9am to 6pm on the weekend. Also, going forward, we will return the range to operations on Thursdays from 9am to 6:30pm and Fridays from 9:00am to 1:30pm. We will continue to observe social distancing and our enhanced cleaning protocol. The firing line will continue to utilize every other bench but there are no longer limitations on the number of people allowed on the firing line. The restrictions on available equipment and time limitations when people are waiting for a bench still apply. Thank you for working with us during these unusual times and we hope to return your favorite range to full operations in the very near future.

COVID-19 UPDATE

posted Apr 21, 2020, 10:41 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Jun 9, 2020, 7:11 AM ]

Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. has implemented a phase-in process to reopening the rifle range. Please read closely!
Our new hours are: Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm
The only entrance and exit from the range is the paved concrete driveway; the footpath & steps are closed.
Only 10 people (9 plus the RSO) will be allowed on the firing line at any time.
Social distancing must be maintained by all RSOs, members and visitors to the rifle range i.e. minimal assistance from RSOs
The Clubhouse building is CLOSED to everyone except the RSOs.
Targets & disposable ear plugs are available but sand bags, spotting scopes, safety glasses & headsets are NOT available.
It is HIGHLY recommended that everyone wear a face mask while at the range.
In order to minimize personal contact, bringing the correct change to pay for annual or daily memberships would be greatly appreciated. Remember, cash or check only !
We have had an overwhelming response to reopening the range! Effective May 3rd, the length of time individuals may remain on the firing line is being limited to one (1) hour when there is a backlog of people waiting to shoot. We have also temporarily reduced the cost of "daily" memberships from $7 to $5. This change is to provide everyone an opportunity to shoot at the range.
Thank you for your understanding and ongoing patronage.

During this stressful and trying time, we thank you for your understanding and compliance with our new operational procedures. We will get through this together!
 

Coronavirus Situation (COVID 19)

posted Mar 18, 2020, 4:04 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Mar 26, 2020, 5:02 PM ]

While Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. continues to closely monitor this very fluid situation, we want to remain focused on providing a safe and enjoyable shooting experience for our members and visitors. As we make decisions regarding the operations of the shooting facility, we will remain in constant communication with local, state and national officials responsible for protecting public health and security and we will continue to follow their guidance and consider their recommendations as we move forward.

Pistol Caliber Carbines Allowed to shoot Yellow/Green Swingers

posted Aug 6, 2019, 5:01 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

A new rule has been introduced recently to Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club. In the past, the yellow/green swingers were restricted to rimfire calibers and handguns only. With the upgrade of our swinger material to AR500 steel, it is now permitted to shoot the yellow/green swingers with rimfire calibers and STANDARD HANGUN CALIBERS. This change means that pistol caliber carbines shooting 9mm luger, 40 S&W and other such typical handgun calibers may now shoot the yellow/green swingers. Frequent requests from our membership, increased popularity of pistol caliber carbines and our new swinger material has allowed us to enhance the shooting enjoyment of our members by increasing the variety of targets that may now be engaged. Stop down soon to put that new pistol caliber carbine through its paces!

NRA Certified RSO's at KSC

posted Sep 29, 2018, 1:03 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club now boasts six (6) NRA Certified Range Safety Officers among its staff. The National Rifle Association developed the Basic Range Safety Officer Course in 1998 to satisfy the need to have trained persons oversee and conduct safe range operations. This extra level of training and knowledge brings the skills and proper attitude necessary to safely and competently fulfill RSO duties. Having six (6) RSO's receive this NRA certification puts Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club at the forefront of local shooting ranges in the Fox River Valley. Our NRA certified RSO's are identified on the "Officers" page by *** following their names. Click on "Officers" in the side navigation bar or look for their name tags when visiting the range for the special "NRA certified RSO" designation. Just one more way that Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club strives to make your visit enjoyable and safe.

Clarification of Handgun Treatment

posted Dec 22, 2017, 1:19 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Apr 8, 2018, 9:22 AM ]

In the interest of keeping everyone out of harms way, we are enforcing more strictly a Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club (KSC) policy that has been in effect since 2011. The policy relates to the treatment of handguns being used at the range. Concealed carry firearms that remain concealed and unused at the range may continue to be carried concealed throughout your visit to the range. Openly carried firearms, typically in an external holster, that remain holstered and unused at the range may continue to be carried holstered throughout your visit to the range. Once a firearm is used at the range, all of the range rules apply to that firearm. In particular, firearm actions must be open, magazines out and the firearm placed face up on the bench during cease fires. Alternatively, the firearm may be placed in a case that completely encloses the firearm. Holsters are NOT considered to be cases. These rules are quite explicitly written out in both the RANGE RULES signs and the LIGHT SYSTEM explanation signs at the range. Holstering and unholstering firearms (draw & fire drills) is not permitted unless the exercise is part of official law enforcement training conducted during non-public range days. The RSO on duty has the final say as to what is and what is not permitted. Arguing with the RSO or conducting oneself in a disruptive manner will earn you an expulsion from the range. Remember, the whole reason behind these policies and practices is to maintain the highest level of safety and enjoyment for everyone who visits KSC. Stay SAFE my friends.

RANGE RULES slightly expanded

posted Sep 20, 2016, 4:44 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Jun 16, 2017, 6:55 AM ]

We certainly do not want to wish away the summer months but Fall will be upon us before we know it and with that comes the increased activity levels at the rifle range in anticipation of the deer hunting season. You might notice that an extra rule has been added to our RANGE RULES signs. We thought that adding shelves along the canopy wall and the building would be a good place for visitors to store their gear while shooting to keep from tripping over it, etc. Unfortunately the range staff found themselves looking at the business end of a lot of firearms as some visitors uncased their firearms on the shelves and then swept the firing line with their muzzles. Therefore the necessity of the new rule which requires that all guns be cased and uncased at the benches with muzzles pointed down range!!! It is always a good idea to refresh your familiarity with the RANGE RULES each time you visit the range for a day of shooting because we all know that change is the one constant in our lives. As a reminder, effective October 1st our Fall hours of operation return to 9:00am to 4:00pm Wednesday thru Friday and 9:00am to 4:00pm on the weekends. The Winter schedule is 10:00 to 3:00 Wednesday thru Friday and 9:00 to 4:00 on weekends beginning December 1st. Be sure to check the calendar on the home page for any special events that may cause our "normal" hours to change. Winter trap league runs every other Sunday morning from January until mid May and the Hunter's Safety Field Day are a couple of things that cause minor changes to our normal hours of operation. Calling the range prior to stopping down is always a good way to avoid disappointment just in case something unexpected should arise that might cause our operations to deviate from normal.

Did you know???

DId you know that it is permissable to drive your vehicle down the hill? Yes, it's true but there are some restrictions. If you are bringing a lot of equipment to the range for a day of shooting such as firearms, ammunition, boxes of clays, lead sleds, etc. you may carefully drive down the East entrance to unload your gear. At your first opportunity, which for most vehicles would be a cease fire, you must drive back up the hill and park your vehicle in one of the designated areas. At the end of your visit to the range, you may then drive down the hill once again to pick up your gear. One word of caution, when driving down the East entrance driveway, go slowly and never pull your vehicle in front of the firing line when the range is active.
