SHOTGUNNERS: Please refrain from completely destroying all of the target boards on range C & J. There is a large patterning board on range K. Bring your own large paper or cardboard and pattern your shotgun there. We are having to change all the target boards 2-3 times a week and this is getting too expensive and time consuming for the maintenance man. If you use range C use the available target stands and survey stakes to staple your patterning target to and use that. If you want to set up clays along the berms set them up within 3m of the berms (t the bottom of the backstops NOT the top!
RANGE B CARBINE AND RIFLE SHOOTERS
If you are shooting clays or balloons secure them to the target boards or place them at the bottom of the berms NOT THE TOP. There has been evidence of members placing clays near the top of the backstops above the target boards, this is a huge safety risk as rounds could skip off the tops of the berms and leave the range/ricochet, if you see anyone doing this please educate them to the dangers/placing clays or any other target near the tops of backstops above the target boards will result in disciplinary action and possible loss of membership.
