JULY MEETING NOTES
Some members have complained that their gate codes are not working or they have to enter the code several times before the gate will open. The numbers on the keypad must be pushed firmly and without any pause between numbers. A pause will cause the keypad to reset itself. Your gate code is unique to you, so please do not share it with anyone. If you continue to have trouble with your gate code, please contact Ben LoCicero.
Hunter sight-in starts September 10 and runs thru October 8, with most dates being on the weekends and Thursday afternoons. Please check the calendar for exact dates. If you can spare some time and would like to help, just show up on the dates you are available. Contact Frank Phelps if you have any questions.
Rockie Walston is selling raffle tickets for the Washington Youth Hunter Education Challenge. The winner of the raffle will have their choice of two rifles, a Ruger .308 bolt action or a TMW AR-15, with the second place winner receiving the remaining rifle. Tickets are $10 each and are available thru Rockie or one of the range officers on the rifle range. For more information, contact Rockie or visit this website:

We have several matches this month that will impact range use. Sunday, August 2nd, we will have a high power rifle match, Saturday August 15th will be a CMP rifle match, long range sight-in Friday the 28th, Saturday August 29th will be Youth Day, and over the Labor Day weekend we have an international rifle match. All of these activities will impact our range use. September will be very busy as well. Please check the calendar before coming to the range.
We have had several new air gun shooters from the Rogers High School ROTC program come out to shoot on Tuesday evenings.
Two of the female shooters attended the Orcas Island Conservation Camp last week, and three of the male shooters are attending this week.
