There is a new website now online at http://www. waitsburggunclub.com. If you want to see anything added to this website, email the club from the website or put a note on the back of the renewal form.  Note - the membership renewal form has space for listing your email address.  Please add your email address if you would like to get other Gun Club information sent to you during the year.  We are still working on this to get it working right.

To help run your club. We will have a Range Work Day on Sunday Sept 15th from 9:00-Noon to repair target frames and other repairs around the club.

The club will be hosting a shooting event for new & old shooter that want to learn something new it’s called Appleseed. This will take place on Oct. 26-27, 2013 & at that time the range will be closed for general shooting. You can find more information about this @ appleseedinfo.org/host_appleseed.html I will have a few flyers in Sept. to give away if you are interested give me a call.

 

 

RANGE ABUSE

There has been a problem with some members drinking ALCOHOL ON THE RANGE. Drinking and guns don’t mix.  This is a violation of club rules.  If you violate this rule, your membership will be forfeited and you will not be allowed back on the range.

Please STOP shooting golf balls, TV sets, water jugs, and other non-standard targets.  Most people that shoot these targets don’t pick them up.  The mower does not like these targets & someone has to clean up the mess when doing Range maintenance.  After you get done shooting, please pick up your paper targets since they blow around and the neighbors don’t like the mess. A few members are taking big pieces of stove wood out on the range & shooting at them. This must stop. Do not shoot at pistol target holder from the rifle shooting bench’s, we do have neighbors.

Membership Information Needed.

We need to have everybody, even the life members, fill out the membership renewal form completely with all the information. Be sure to include your NRA 8-12 digit membership number and your expiration month and year.  If you can’t find your card than take it off the mailing label on the magazine you get from the NRA. We cannot give you the $10.00 membership discount without your current NRA membership number.  If you wish to join the NRA, please contact Fred and you will receive another discount for joining the NRA through the Gun Club (as well as a membership discount).  The more members the Gun Club has enrolled in the NRA, the lower the Club’s insurance costs.

Remember, if you move you need to let us know your new address. If you change your email address email the new one to the clubs email address info@waitsburggunclub.com

If you need a set of the Gun Club RULES, circle the yes box at the bottom of the renewal page & I will send you a set when I send out the new membership card to you or visit the web site – http://www.waitsburggunclub.org/rangerules/rules.htm.

If you have any other questions about the club please put them on the back of your renewal page that you send back or send an email to info@waitsburggunclub.com
