PLSC Announcements

Range Access
The gate lock is presently set to open with the members' 2017-18 combination that is furnished with the current membership card.

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.)

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.
