2006 Rifle and Archery Ranges
We had a safe Hunting and Shooting season in 2005. As we all know a rifle range can be a fun place to shoot, but also a very dangerous place. The Sportsmans Club Rifle range is for our club members only. Members must carry their cards at all times.
A fence has been placed at the rifle range area to control access from non-club members and to make it safer. Our goal is for everyone to have fun and be safe. The security lock combination for the rifle range gate will be printed on your membership card. (USE OUR RANGES AND BE SAFE)
Preliminary work has begun on the RT 35 upgrade. For the safety of workers on
the club property, the Rifle Range will be closed Mon thru Friday until further
notice. The Rifle Range will be open sporadically on the weekends
