The Erie National Wildlife Refuge is having their Amateur Nature Photo Contest again this year. The deadline for submissions is September 25th, 2015. This is a great way (excuse) do some pre-season scouting or just to get out and enjoy the wonderful scenery around the area. For more information chick here.
HANDGUN RANGE – We received a grant from the NRA Foundation to construct a roof over the shooting area on this range. If things go well we should have something in place by late summer. Also, please remember that the Handgun Range is closed during the Handgun Adventure Trail Matches – 4th Sunday of each month from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. We are still asking that all shooters center their target on the backboards. The backboards will last longer and there is less likelihood of hitting either of the cables. PLEASE OBEY ALL RANGE AND SAFETY RULES
HANDGUN ADVENTURE TRAIL – The trail is now open for practice rounds (22 rifle, 22 handgun, centerfire handgun, and golf) for members and guests. Please remember that there is a $1 fee for ALL SHOOTERS FOR EACH PRACTICE ROUND SHOT. Also, please note that there the first practice targets for the centerfire pistol course are at station two. This is a safety precaution because of the proximity of the targets at station one to the handgun range. There are still 25 practice targets out on the trail.PLEASE OBEY ALL SAFETY RULES – NO LOADED FIREARMS INCLUDING LOADED MAGAZINES IN ANY FIREARM WHILE WALKING THE TRAIL, PLEASE WAIT UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR SHOOTING STATION TO LOAD!!
HUNTER SAFETY INSTRUCTORS – We are in need of more instructors if we are going to continue holding the classes at Black Ash. Get in touch with me if you are interested in finding out more about this.
NRA SILHOUETTE MATCHES – First match was Saturday April 11. Shooting starts at 9 a.m. Bring out your 22 rifle or handgun and join in on this challenging shooting sport. We will be including centerfire pistol and rifle (using pistol cartridges) later this spring or summer – keep watching for details.
OTHER NEWS – We got the word that Titusville Sportsman’s Club will be starting their Woods Walk Shoots on May 3. For details contact Les Brown (814)967-3503. Looks like they plan to shoot again on the first Sunday of the month.
We have been experiencing some minor problems with shooters here and ask for cooperation. PLEASE DO NOT RAISE THE TARGETS ABOVE THE LEVEL WHERE THEY ARE SET BY THE RANGE MAINTENANCE CREW. WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE CABLE PROTECTED FROM ERRANT SHOTS AND HAVE RAISED THE CABLE, WE DID NOT LOWER THE TARGETS. DO NOT HANG ANYTHING ELSE FROM THE CABLE AS A TARGET (ONLY PAPER TARGETS PERMITTED) AND PLEASE CENTER YOUR TARGET ON THE BACKBOARD, THIS WILL HELP THEM LAST LONGER.
RIFLE RANGE – Open as always to members and their guests. Please deposit guest range fees before shooting.
The schedules for the upcoming years events are posted on the Calendar. If see anything we missed or if you have any ideas for the Web site please drop us an email. email@example.com
