Frequently Asked Questions
How do I open the manual thrower on the trap range?
There is a secure enclosure on the manual clay thrower located on the trap range. If you want to use it, the combination is the 4 digit code printed on the bottom right corner of your yellow membership card. Please close and lock the cover when you are done. The thrower will not clear if you have adjusted the throwing height, simply lower it, then close and lock the cover.
How To Apply My Membership Decal to My Gate Access Card
Paper Membership Cards are no longer issued by The Club. Members in good standing are issued a permanent decal that is applied to the electronic gate access card. This decal is to be applied to the blank side of the card and not cover your member number or the hole for the lanyard clip. If you lose your gate card please contact us immediately to order a new card and prevent unauthorized club access Decal Application Video HERE
Club Access when the electronic gate will not open?
Entrance to our facility is restricted, you enter through a controlled access gate. Active members are issued a gate card and code. If you are unsuccessful swiping the magnetic card, you may use the number keypad. This is a number printed on the back of the GATE card; the last 5 digits followed by the "#" will open the gate if entered in the sequence. If the last 5 digits of your card are 51234 you would enter 51234#.
If the gate is not in operation and the metal swing gate is closed and locked, there is a 4 digit number printed on the bottom right corner of your yellow membership card, that is the combination lock code.
Club access is prohibited otherwise, if you are a guest of an active member and coming to the range you need to access the gate with them and sign a one day waiver. (see range rules section for locations) Non Members may only enter for Member Meetings and public events, during these times the gate will be open, signage on the property will direct you to the clubhouse.
Are non-members allowed to use the club?
Members have access to the club 365 days per year. All shooting events posted on the Event Calendar are open to the public (non-members) unless otherwise noted. Monthly "General Membership Meetings" are open to the public. These meetings are held the 2nd Thursday every month. Also noted in the calendar.
ALL GUESTS MUST SIGN A ONE DAY WAIVER. If you come to a multi day event, you need a new form signed and dated each day. Keep the yellow copy for your records. Waivers are located in the lower range lot kiosk and vestibule to the clubhouse. If you are shooting a club scheduled event, the range officer for that event will have waivers at the range.
What times are we allowed to shoot?
Gunfire is prohibited before 10:00am, the exception is a scheduled organized club event. You will find actual times HERE. Several board members live adjacent to the club property; if you shoot early or late you will get a visit from a board member and you will lose range privileges. Shooting must end (15) minutes before sunset, as posted on every range near the sign in/out sheet. This time changes every day as determined by the National Weather Service (click here for actual sunset time and subtract 15 minutes)
