Chapter Presidents Letter November 2019 PLEASE CHECK THE WEB SITE FOR UP TO DATE ANNOUNCEMENTS AND CHAPTER CLOSURES: August is National Shooting Sports Month and in 2020 we will participate on the 2nd of August. Since we are just starting to plan our participation will be looking for ideas to this public event and volunteers to help set up and run various activities. Marty Sprick have volunteered to be the Special Committee Chair and help coordinate the day. Please let him know your thoughts for activities publicity and what you are willing to do to help. We will need RSO activity coordinators and those willing to help even if only to flip burgers. We will be waiving the guest fees on the rifle/pistol range. We would like to have multiple stations (rifle, pistol, shotgun, fishing and archery) open to the public. January 4&5 the Appleseed project will be returning to our chapter to train young shooters please watch the website for the activities We have updated the Range Safety Rules. PLEASE review the new rules (it will have the new effective date on the first page). Some of the changes include mandated use of ECI on the rifle range. Additional changes allow Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) and rifle-caliber pistols use on the Pistol range, and other adjustments to procedures to cover our evolved procedures and competitions. We will be having various repairs to our infrastructure going on during the next weeks please be patient. We will be reroofing the Turkey Shot house, drilling a new well, replacing the windows in the club house to lower our energy costs and spreading new gravel on our some of roads and driveways.
