RANGE RULES slightly expanded

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.
