Election of Club Officers at Sept. 4th Thursday 2014 Annual General Meeting
The 2014 Annual General Meeting will take place at 6:30pm, Sept. 4th, at the WGC clubhouse at the range.  Club Officers will be elected at this meeting. Come show your support and consider filling one of the vital roles in our all-volunteer organization. The officers up for election: Pres., Vice Pres., Sect., Treasurer, Senior Range Off. & Range Maintenance Officer. We need your help!

RANGE MAINTENANCE
To help run your club effectively, we will have a Range Work Day on Monday September 15th from 9:00-Noon to repair target frames and make other repairs around the club. Range Work Days are usually on Sunday but will be on a Monday this September.

RANGE ABUSE
No drinking of 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.
The metal gongs at the 100 yard line are taken down during the high fire danger time (usually June until Oct). Do not hang any metal targets during this time. Please DON’T shoot golf balls, TV sets, water jugs, or 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. Do not take pieces of stove wood out on the range & shoot at them and do not use tracers on the range at any time. This is not allowed. Do not shoot at pistol target holders from the rifle shooting benches. Remember, we do have neighbors and shots made in this manner will be dangerously directed at these neighbors.

RANGE DAMAGE

All members and guests need to help monitor range damage. Do not shoot the target frame supports (on purpose). There has been shooting into the window frame at the front of the Firing Range building – this damage is totally unacceptable and greatly increases the cost of maintaining the Range. If a member or guest sees this type of damage taking place, please document the event (date, time, individuals or their license plate number) to Club Officials (call 509-524-8688 and leave a message). Member monitoring is how our Range will continue to exist at the same low cost to members.

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 send an email or call the information phone 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 club’s 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 and you will receive a set when the new membership cards are sent out 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.
