PLSC Announcements

Range Access
The lock on the gate that controls vehicle access is currently set for the combination for the 2016-17 membership year.   That combination is on the 2016-17 membership card.
  February 2017 update:  The driveway is pretty well blocked by drifts and piles of snow. Joe Tormala plowed it open in December. (Thanks, Joe!) Heavy snowfalls have made impossible any further plowing attempts. Members are welcome to enter the club grounds on foot or with snowshoes, skis, etc.
  On May 1, 2017, the starting date of annual PLSC memberships, the gate lock combination is scheduled to be changed. The new combnation as usual will be printed on the membership card furnished to new and renewing members of the club.
 Spring 2017: During spring snow melt the surface of club driveway becomes soft, and any vehicle traffic may destroy the roadbed. The combination of the lock on the access gate will be changed temporarily when the drive is soft. When the drive becomes usable, the combination will revert to the number given to club members.

If you are not a club member and wish to join, see the Membership Page. If you were a member last year and did not receive information about renewing your membership, you should contact the club secretary, (Club contact information.)

  Range Familiarization & Safety Sessions may be listed on the Club Calendar. If you cannot attend a scheduled session, convenient times can ususally be arranged by contacting the Club Secretary. (Club contact information).
