2018 Event Matrix

Help is always needed on the different ranges to continue our improvements. 

IF YOU ARE SHOOTING TRAP AND THE SKEET FIELD IS ACTIVE, YOU “MUST” CHECK WITH THE SHOOTERS ON THE SKEET FIELD AND ENSURE THEY ARE IN A CEASE FIRE OR BETWEEN ROUNDS PRIOR GOING FORWARD AND RELOADING OR SERVICING THE TRAP HOUSE.  WE WILL BE GETTING A FLAG THAT WILL BE PLACED AT THE TRAP HOUSE AND WILL BE SHOWN WHILE THE TRAP HOUSE IS BEING SERVICED.   WHILE THIS FLAG IS BEING SHOWN, ALL ACTIVITY ON THE SKEET FIELDS WILL CEASE.


See Range Info Page for scheduled Matches, Results and Events!

We are asking members to assist in maintaining the range by putting your weed eater or mower in the truck when you come to the range and cut a little grass after you finish shooting.  If we will all do this, the range will always look good.

Minutes of Cleburne County Shooting Club, Inc. Annual Meeting:         August 6, 2018

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm by President Jim Murray.

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Members present: Approximately    55 members were present, including current Officers: Jim Murray, Clyde Gates, Karen Swain, Donnie Hyslip, and Scott Swain.

President Jim Murray reported that the Executive Committee has met once since the last quarterly club meeting, however he explained that the Executive Committee is very active through emails and texts.

Karen Swain summarized the minutes of the previous CCSC meeting of May 7, 2018.  Motion was made to accept the minutes, it was seconded and passed. (Club meeting minutes are emailed, as well as posted on the club house porch).

Jim Murray then called on each director for their report:

Secretary Treasurer Karen Swain gave a report on the club’s current membership:

420 Current members (have paid within the past 12 mos.)(29 are members of the Sheriff’s Department)

Also pleased to report: the club has email addresses for 400 members (96%).  14 members have confirmed they do not have email accounts.  For those members without email accounts, the quarterly club meeting minutes are posted on the porch of the club house.

This past club year, the club welcomed 75 new members, of which 23 joined in June and July.   The Treasurer recently opened a new club email account just to process new memberships, membershipatccsc@gmail.com.  Membership applications can now be requested and received by email.  At the same time I send the application, I send a letter containing important club information.   Related or not, our application rate has more than doubled recently.

Karen Swain gave a financial report on both the “Membership” and the “Shotgun” bank accounts, detailing the beginning and ending balances of each account for the last 3 months.  

·         $10,107.50 deposited into the “Membership Account“(including annual fees for 57 seniors, 30 regular adults, and 29 members of the Sheriff’s Department.

·         19 checks and/or drafts were written from this account in total amount of $5,490.95. 

·         Monthly deposits for skeet and trap into the “Shotgun” account for May, June and July totaled $1,791.00

She reported that the transition to an annual membership year of July 1 through June 30 is progressing relatively smoothly.  Members are paying a prorated amount to transition their current membership year to one that ends every June 30th.

Karen Swain recently met with a club member, Dave Bobel, to review the club’s financial records of 2017-2018.   The club’s financial records are always available at club meetings, as well as by appointment, for any member’s review and/or questions.  

 

Having an annual membership year is making all of the responsibilities and functions of the Treasurer much easier to accomplish.   Karen Swain asks all members to take some responsibility for their club membership by remembering that:

·          EVERYONE will always know their membership expires each year on June 30th. 

·         Although renewals will continue to be emailed, please know that if for any reason you do not receive notice, you should still mail in your renewal payment.  You WILL receive your new membership card.

·         ALL club members will receive their next renewal notices around the first week of May each year.  

·         All members need to renew before their membership expires on June 30 each year.  

·         Members will receive the upcoming gate code at the same time they receive their new membership card.  The club mailing address is also on the back. 

·         Changing the gate code will be coordinated to occur in conjunction with the new annual membership year. 

·         The gate code will change on the first Monday of August every year.  With this new membership system, paid members will receive the new gate code when they receive their new membership card.

·         Having the same membership year for all members allows for each year’s membership card to be a different background color.  The 2018-2019 membership cards have a yellow background.  The 2019-2020 membership cards will have a blue background

 

She reiterated that members should allow up to 30 days to process membership renewals or new membership applications.  However, it usually takes much less time, about 7 days.  Also, to help a member track personally, she doesn’t deposit checks until the new membership card has been placed in the mail.

Karen Swain reminds new applicants to PLEASE CONTACT CCSC Treasurer at membershipatccsc@gmail.com when a new application is mailed to CCSC.  Any questions they may have can be answered at that time, as well as being told an estimated time to receive their membership.

Chief Range Officer Clyde Gates reported that all necessary Right-of-Way (ROW) consents have been received.  Entergy requires 30 feet cleared for the ROW.  A member advised that SSS Christian School will take all of the cut down trees.

Current status of power at the range:  there is 1 working diesel generator. A new Generator costs approximately $16K or $17K.

The batteries for the solar lights have been replaced.

Shotgun Director Scott Swain reported that the shotgun ranges are running smoothly. He reminded members to check the club’s FaceBook page.

Youth Director Donnie Hyslip reported there had been no youth activities since the last meeting.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

NOTE!!

When using Pistol or Rifle Ranges members are expected to work together to insure SAFETY! Make The Line Safe when others need to visit the Target Line downrange. MAKE THE LINE SAFE! .. means all guns are to be unloaded, actions open, "grounded" and no gun handling until line is declared Hot! If your/another shooters report sounds "wrong", misfires or a squib load is fired.... Call CEASE FIRE!! That also means Make the Line Safe! .... make sure the bore is clear!
On the Shotgun Fields make sure your gun is unloaded, action is open when not shooting and practice safe muzzle control. If having a gun malfunction, slow down and think twice before doing anything. If your/another shooters report sounds "wrong", misfires or a squib load is fired.... CEASE FIRE!! .... make sure the bore is clear!

SUNDAYS!! ............ No shooting until 12 NOON!!

Note: Green Tipped M955 5.56 (223) Ammo is Armor Piercing

Please be safe when on the range.  

GENERAL INFO:  

We have recently had issues concerning both trespassers on our range, and the gate being left open with no member on the range.  These trespassers seem to be the worst in the days and weeks prior to hunting season, but can come at any time.  Please do not give the gate code to anyone.  Guest must be accompanied by a member.  You may not send a non-member as a guest unless you are with him/her.  On arrival, please lock the gate behind you unless a club event is scheduled.  Examples of these events include Trap, Skeet, scheduled fun shoots or matches on the rifle or pistol ranges, and club meetings.  When you leave, please lock the gate behind you even if others are on the range.  Members will have the gate code to get out, others won’t.  

Failure to lock the gate is grounds for suspension or expulsion from CCSC. Officers will be checking IDs.  

Please have your current membership cards with you.  Please do not be offended if you are asked for ID.  It is simply wrong for trespassers to use our facility without participating in the membership process.  At best they get for free what everyone else pays for. At worst, we have had vandalism and disregard for range safety.

Every month the newsletter will be posted on our web site. I have had a few requests to send out a copy by mail. If you know someone that does not have a computer or access to one. Either send me their  name or have them send me their name and I will get a hard copy to them. Please don’t just start sending me names, I only want the names of people who do not have a computer or access to one.

Please be aware of fire on the range! Only lead or cooper clad bullets are allowed. No tracer or steel core ammo is to be used on the rifle range because of the fear of sparks that could start a fire.

Please have your membership card with you when you are at the club. Our range officers will ask you for proof of membership. If you do not have your card you will be asked to leave or pay a $5 guest fee.

Please, we have stated this before. No shooting of shotguns on the pistol range.
