Range Use Policies and Procedures

 


Hours of Operation

Shooting is allowed from 9am to sunset, Monday through Saturday. Sundays from 1pm to sunset.


Operation of Card Reader and Gate Access

The range is controlled by a radio frequency card reader system. There is a card reader on the left as you approach the gate from outside on entry and another inside the range on the left for exit.

Hold your card within three inches of the reader until it beeps. The gate will open for one, and only one, vehicle to enter or leave and close automatically.

Guests in separate vehicles may enter upon a separate operation of the gate for each vehicle. If you have guests entering in their own vehicle, open gate for them to pass, then repeat.

If the gate is locked open for an event you are still required, both coming and going,  to use your card to record your entry to and departure from the range.


Procedures For Rounds Shot Recording

Lead accumulation on Club ranges is a concern. In 2005 RP and RC was awarded a  Environmental Protection Agency Best Practices Certificate for Lead Management.  To comply with our EPA Best Practices procedures, each shooter (members & guests) must log the number of rounds shot on each range on the Range Logout Sheets provided.

When you have finished shooting, you must enter the number of rounds fired on each range under the appropriate caliber.  Log out forms are provided in a box hanging on a post at each range.  For-the shotgun range, the number of rounds (not gauge) fired is required for each event type (Trap, Wobble Trap & 5 Stand).


Member Identification

Each member MUST visibly display their  membership ID badge when on club property.


Restrooms

Portable toilets are located behind the shotgun range, and across from the 25-yard Please keep them tidy and clean.  Report problems to the Range Operations Officer.
