Overall range availability is at the discretion of the Board.
Normally live fire recreational shooting for all members and their guests takes place daily. The Range is open from 8:00 a.m. to ½ hour before sunset Monday thru Friday, and from 9.00 a.m. to ½ hour prior to sunset on Saturday and Sunday. End shooting time for each day is posted at the entry gate.
The Range is under the control of the Board of the East End Rod and Gun Club.
All decisions as to Range operation and safety are at the discretion of the Board, but must follow the guidelines put forth in the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).
The Board, or the club President has the authority to shut down the range if it is deemed necessary.
In extreme cases, such as an accident or an unruly person as defined in Chapter 6, of the SOPs, the Range should be closed down and the proper authorities (Fire & Rescue Squad and/or County Sheriff) notified. The President, Chief Range Safety Officer, and the Board should also be notified as soon as possible.
Any club member using this facility on there own must have attended a Range Orientation and have had a New Member Assessment done.
Due to the dangers of lead exposure, no person is allowed to pick up used lead from the range without the knowledge of and permission by the Board.
We would like to remind everyone to please clean up after yourselves when you are using the range. There have been reports that someone has been shooting glass bottles and obviously that is not something we want to see. It creates a huge mess and a hazard for other people who are using the range. Use the existing target stands to affix your targets and if you bring out plastic bottles or something like that, please clean up the mess and take it home with you. We appreciate your “packing it out, if you pack it in.”
The calendar of scheduled events is linked above, please refer to that before you go out to the range. If you are at the range when one of these events is taking place, contact the person in charge to see if arrangements can be made for you to shoot. Those events do take precedence but most of the time something can be arranged so you can utilize the range also.
Most importantly, when you are at the range, respect the other shooters who may be out there at the same time.
Remember the tenant at the house is a member of the club and looking out for our interests, remember this if they should come out and ask you about being out there. If you get the opportunity tell them thanks for watching out for things.
