Club members may enter the club property at any time during the year,
on foot or with skis, showshoes, etc.
Entry with vehicles is through the front gate. (Important regulations
for opening and closing the gate are found under "Orientation" in the
Club Rules.) The combination to the gate lock
is supplied to all club members. During the spring thaw the roadbed
of the acccess driveway can become very soft, and when that occurs the
combination to the gate lock may be changed temporarily to prevent
entry of vehicles and damage to the roadway.
Structures and facilties on the club grounds include the following:
Rifle & Pistol Range
A 25-400 yard combination rifle and pistol range is a major attraction
of the club, and has been renovated recently to bring it into
compliance with safety and accessibility recommendations from the NRA.
Target boards for rifle shooting are installed in front of impact
berms at 100, 200, 300, and 400 yards. Moveable target stands and
target boards are available for use in front of the new 50-yard berm.
The firing line is a concrete pad covered with a roof, with storage
sheds at each end. Moveable shooting benches and tables have been
placed on the pad for member use
Note: The rifle range has been significantly
upgraded recently. Club member Dave Caspary has written a summary of the range improvements for
Friends of NRA, which helped fund the work.
Main Club House
The club house is used for meetings and shooting events and is
operational during the summer and fall. During the winter season the
club house is generally closed and unavailable for use. Rooms in the
building include a large meeting room, a kitchen, two bathrooms, and a
storage room. Except during the winter, club members can access one
of the bathrooms through the rear door of the club house. The
combination to lock on the door is provided with membership.
The pistol pit is located to the west of the covered firing line. This
50-yard range is surrounded by a horseshoe-shaped berm. Practical
pistol shooting is usually conducted on this range.
5-Stand Shotgun Range
The 5-Stand range is located to the east of the covered firinrg line.
New clay throwing machines have been added recently to increase the
challenge and ease of use of the facility.
Located near the club house, the trap facility consists of a trap
house with remotely-operated clay thrower. The layout conforms to
regulations, including concrete handicap lanes.
Hockings Memorial Pavilion
A pavilion with picnic tables and grills available to members. Part of
the structure is enclosed for club storage. The facility is dedicated
to the memory of Bill Hockings, whose widow supplied major funding for
building the pavilion. Bill, a longtime officer and active supporter
of the club, put a lot of sweat equity into construction of the
A back stop and archery targets are located to the south of the club
