Sorry about the delay in getting this newsletter and renewal applications out.
Because of my tardiness, your passkey will remain active through the month of February 2017.
ALL Members will be required to attend a 2nd Safety Orientation (different from the original orientation) that will be offered in February.
Attendance to this additional 2nd Orientation will be mandatory for all to get their gate pass key re-activated for 2017.
Safety is a paramount and very serious concern of the Board and Officers.
It needs to be yours.
Most members haven’t gone through a Club/Range Orientation for 5 years. Membership will be updated with the proper Firing Line Procedures and now that the new Combat Pistol Range is opening this spring, (with a different set of Range Rules) the Clubs Officers and Board Members mandated that ALL members AND shooting family members go through a 2nd Orientation Session based solely on Firing Line Procedures & Range Safety.
So as to control the large numbers of members attending the New 2nd Orientation Sessions, initially the sessions will be done alphabetically (your last name) as out lined in the attached schedule. If you can’t make your session, then please attend one of the next sessions. There are 700+ Family memberships; we can only accommodate 50-60 at a time. All shooting family members need to attend.
All member types must attend.
The sessions will take about 1/2 hour. It will take some time to process this number of people, so PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY. We unfortunately cannot allow late arrivals. You will be asked to leave and attend another session.
I’m sure that you can all agree that we can’t afford an accident at the Club and that EVERYONE needs to be on the same page when it comes to Range Safety.

As you can see, this is a time and labor-intensive endeavor, requiring your cooperation.
Please attempt to attend your assigned session, no matter how inconvenient it may be. If you can’t attend your assigned session try to make it to another evening session. If you have moved out of the area for the winter or just can’t make the assigned sessions or open sessions then you will need to attend one of our NEW Monthly Saturday Orientation’s, after we will activate your passkey or exchange it for an operational one.
