Location

We're located on 42nd Street NE, west of Edgewood Road;

About 2.5 miles West from I-380.

Saturday, October 12, we need volunteers to meet at the Chapter House at 8 AM -- so we can clean up our adopted stretch of Highway 100.

The four beehives appear to be doing well.  Unless we have a really rough winter, the bees should do well till next Spring.

Our Chapter raised and and released about 50 Monarch butterflies this past summer.

The indoor pistol range will be re-opening soon -- final touches are being installed.  The acoustic tile that lines the walls is being replaced with ballistic rubber sheet.  Much of the new HVAC system is now installed.

The outdoor pistol range committee is working on the range to prevent ricochets from bouncing up and over the wood backstop.

We have raised the top of the berm at the end of the rifle range several feet by adding more than 14 truckloads of dirt, to prevent stray rounds from heading outside the range.

The concrete blocks at the 100 yard line will soon be replaced with bullet-friendly alternatives, to better protect against ricochets.

Contact the Committee

People have been using the trap houses on a regular basis.  The trap ranges are here for your enjoyment.

Reminder - if something needs attention on the range, contact us so we can take care of it.

If you need the safety briefing to use the equipment, contact the committee below.
