MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING:  Thursday, April 14th is the next monthly membership meeting.  As always, the meeting starts at 7:30pm in the clubhouse.

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 us if you are interested in finding out more about this.

NRA SILHOUETTE MATCHES – 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.

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. web@blackashsportsman.org
