are open to the general public on Wednesday through Sunday 52 weeks
a year. We currently have eight shooting ranges. The range is run
by a 10 person Board of Directors and staffed by our on-site Caretakers.
We conduct monthly Board meetings on the second Thursday of every
month. These meetings are usually held at the Range itself. Our
meeting minutes record our monthly discussions and members are encouraged
to attend our meetings. We print an annual newsletter and maintain
a calendar of activities such as matches, classes and law enforcement
training. We are supported by membership fees, daily use fees and
by the generosity of several local sponsors.
