PLSC Announcements

Range Access
Spring 2017 Update: On April 10, club officers temporaily reset the combination for the lock on the gate of the driveway into the club property. As usual, the spring snow melt has left the driveway soft. Any vehicle traffic can damage the roadbed.
  When the drive again becomes usable, the lock will be reset with the usual combination furnished with club membership.
  Before the May 1st ending of the current membership year, the gate lock may be opened with the combination for the 2016-17 membership year (except during the driveway drying-out period.)   That combination was furnished with the 2016-17 membership card.
  On May 1, 2017, the starting date of the PLSC annual membership period for 2017-18, 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.

Dues Increase for 2017-18
Annual club dues will be a bit higher for the 2017-18 membrship year. Regular annual memberships will increase from $50 to $60. Senior and student memberships will increase from $25 to $30.
  Dues last increased in Spring 2001, and have been held at $50 for sixteen years. Despite numerous efficiencies, club expenses have climbed steadily. The Consumer Price Index shows that $50 in 2001 dollars is equivalent to about $69 at present. So, despite the $10 increase, the cost of club membership still represents a real bargain compared with dues of sixteen years ago.

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
All club members (annual, student, life, senior) are required to attend a Range Familiarization & Safety Session at least once every three years. A membership card and gate lock combination will not be issued until timely completion of a session.
  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).
