QUOTE OF THE MONTH: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

President- Chris Pollichemi 
Thank you for your support while I have been President. I would also
like to thank all of you…them members and volunteers that make the
club “happen”. Happy and safe holidays, I will see you next year as Vice President for 2019.

We are looking for cinder block masons to get quotes for work to be
done at the club, please email

Vice President- Mike Arnold 
It has been my privilege and pleasure to serve the club in one position
or another over the years. I’m proud to have been associated with the members of the executive committee, and of the many projects which
have been accomplished by them. Thanks for the memories. Club
Range and Facilities Rules Violations- 
What a relief it is to not have to report any serious club ranges or
facilities rules violations since the November newsletter.

NOTE: A serious rules violation results in an immediate deactivation of the member’s club access card. Most rules violations are resolved by
simply reminding a member of the rule(s).

A REMINDER: If you don’t know the difference between a shotgun shot shell and slug or sabot, or a bottle neck cartridge and a rim fire
cartridge, or the difference between a pistol cartridge and a rifle
cartridge, or what caliber or type of firearm can be used on which range or have any questions about anything – – – ASK SOMEONE. 
GUEST RULES REMINDERS: Member’s responsibilities are POSTED for
bringing guests to the club. Members are absolutely responsible for the
conduct of their guest(s). The member is responsible to sign-in the guest(s) every time they are at the range and pay $2 per guest for using any of the ranges. The guest fees are deposited in the wall safe in the club
house. The member will not shoot, and will directly supervise the guest
shooting, and only one guest is allowed to shoot at a time. All club rules apply to guests.

members renew for 2019.
