A New NRA Pistol / Concealed Carry Class Added! March 15th and 16th

Want to shoot a handgun better or get a concealed carry permit?   This class will run from 9:00 AM until 5 PM on Saturday and from 9:00 AM until 4 PM on Sunday and includes range time on both days.

This 15 hour class is for both the beginner and the experienced shooter, and satisfies the requirements by the state of Virginia for a concealed carry permit.  The beginner shooter will learn the basics as presented by the NRA including safety, marksmanship, nomenclature, cleaning, shooting sports, and more.  The experienced shooter will review basic skills to improve marksmanship, correct problems in marksmanship, or you can introduce a new shooter to the sport by attending the class together.  The concealed carry part of this class covers “The Five Rules for Concealed Carry,” where to carry and where NOT to carry, the three A’s, what type of handgun you are best suited to carry, types of carry holsters, how to get your permit, plus more range time giving you an opportunity to shoot a variety of handguns that may help you decide what is best for you.

Pre-registration is required.  A $20 deposit is needed before the class to secure your enrollment, and to ensure that enough materials and ammunition are available for you.

The cost for this class is $120 and includes handguns and ammunition, if you do not have your own.  For additional information or to register for this class, please call Rod Carter or Beth Christopoulos on 540 989-1776.

Range has reopened.

The ranges have reopened. During the cold weather the frost went about 10 ~ 12 inches deep. When the snow melted the water could not soak into the ground which left a lot of standing water and very soft ground. Please park only in the parking areas and do not drive on the ranges to set targets. The ground is very soft and you could cause a lot of damage. Hopefully things will be back to normal within the next week. Thanks for your cooperation.

Current Available Work Hours

Every year we are faced with members who claim that work hours were not made available to them. For this reason, we will be posting assignments as they become available throughout the year to ensure that all members are aware of these opportunities.

Please contact me for further information regarding any of the listed positions, or to discuss duties in further detail. Assignments will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

This program was a huge hit with the general membership, match directors, as well as our neighbors. Because of this, we will be continuing to monitor the roads and ranges for many of our 2014 matches. I would like to add that virtually 100% of the members that participated in this program commented that it was a quite enjoyable way to get in their work hours. I urge you to please consider signing up so we can keep this program running.

Due to difficulties getting in touch with several key holders, we have made the decision to change the locks on the clays fields once again this year. We feel it is the only way to ensure that the fields remain secure and in good condition.

We will be at the clubhouse on February 28th, March 1st, and March 2nd from 6:00 a 8:00pm to hand out the new keys. If you are planning to continue to be a Clays Safety Officer you must attend one of these dates to pick your new key up.
