NO PARKING NEXT TO THE OUTDOOR PISTOL RANGE

THE RANGE RULES PROHIBIT PARKING IN THE AREA NEXT TO THE PISTOL RANGE. THIS POLICY WAS MADE AFTER THE INSTALLATION OF THE PLATE RACK ON THE RANGE.

“OUTDOOR PISTOL RANGE:

All SOPs apply.

NO VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED PAST THE SIGN AT THE TOP OF THE RANGE ENTRANCE. Parking along the driveway is allowed, if you can do so without impeding traffic.

EYE AND EAR PROTECTION IS MANDATORY AT ALL TIMES, FOR EVERYONE ENTERING PAST THE WARNING SIGN. BECAUSE OF THE INSTALLATION OF THE PLATE RACK, EYE AND EAR PROTECTION MUST BE WORN BY EVERYONE, INCLUDING SPECTATORS, ANYWHERE PAST THE WARNING SIGN, DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF BULLET SPLATTER. DON’T JEOPARDIZE YOUR MEMBERSHIP. THIS RULE IS ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY!

This is a SAFETY AND LIABILITY ISSUE for the club. People have been hit with bullet and jacket fragments in the former parking area. The majority of the parking area is FORWARD OF THE RANGE FIRING LINE, and cannot be occupied during range use. The consequences of a serious injury could be disastrous for the club.

A new parking area was created along the side of the driveway for pistol range users.

Removal of the chain to access the restricted area, and parking in the area is ONLY allowed during large events, when additional parking is needed. ONLY staff for the event are allowed to park there, and cannot access the area until the pistol range is declared SAFE during a cease fire. ANY OTHER USE IS A VIOLATION OF RANGE RULES AND WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF MEMBERSHIP.
