Other useful skills:

  • competency in another language
  • tactfulness and ability to coach newcomers to the sport on how the club operates
  • self-starter
  • handiness; if we have a slow day, someone who can find a project and make a small improvement to the range is obviously beneficial.

Mask policy

Masks are mandatory .We are requiring Face Masks anywhere on the range. Only while engaging targets can they be removed.  We are monitoring this, but first priority is to stay open as other hobbies and sports get shut down.

Membership Renewals

Current members should be getting an emailed invoice for 2021 membership on Dec 1. On Dec 1, we begin accepting new members for 2021 and they are effective immediately upon payment; so you could get 13 months in your first year. New memberships submitted before Dec 1 will be invoiced for 2020.

Please update your profile before renew. If you require a major change to your membership (add or remove a family member) please email sooner than later – it’s a quick fix before the invoice is created. Cutoff for minors is 18 or younger on Jan 1. At 19, they require an adult membership.
