Attention Members! Our bordering neighbors who deer hunt have asked the club to restrict shooting hours during the November Firearms and December Muzzleloader Deer Seasons. Shooting hours will be posted on the gate, ranges, and website. You will receive a warning if caught shooting outside of restricted hours.
- No hunting on club property at any time.
If you witness any violation of the Rules and Regulations please report it to an officer immediately. The Executive Board asks that you provide the name, the incident, time and date of the violation. The Board will review the incident and take proper action as needed.
There is a $2,000 Reward for the arrest and conviction for vandalism or theft on the club premises! The club is under 24 hour video surveillance. Abiding by these rules will make our club safer and more enjoyable for all of us.
