2017 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 Quarterly Club Meeting:  November 7, 2017 

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

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Approximately 25 members were present including Officers: Jim Murray, Darrell Magby, Sr., Clyde Gates, Darrell Magby, Jr., Scott Swain, Karen Swain, and Donny Hyslip. 

Jim Murray reported that the Executive Committee has met twice since the last quarterly club meeting. 

Karen Swain summarized the minutes of the August 7, 2017 club meeting.  Clyde Gates made a motion to accept the minutes as read, Donny Hyslip seconded; the motion passed.

Wayne Evans, the land owner and our landlord, was present and reported on his dealings with the County over the 2017 assessed value.  The original assessment of $91,000 was reduced to $10,000 after reminding the county that this property was a landfill for many years, used as a shell pit by his business for years, and the EPA finally approved the property’s current use.  If the club constructs another structure for the pistol range, the assessed value may increase and the club, per the 2004 lease terms, is responsible to pay the increase in addition to $1,000 annual rent. 

Darrell Magby, Sr., reported that he is working on obtaining estimates to replace/upgrade the fences between the ranges and parking however, he is not prepared at this time to present the figures to the membership.  He was asked about target frames but that topic was tabled for the next Executive Committee meeting. 

Clyde Gates reported that a 20’ x 24’ building to replace the trailer will cost almost $12,000.  An additional $2,000 or so will be necessary to grade the site, etc. He has been talking with Larry Nichols about this. 

Darrell Magby, Jr., reported that he is looking at expanding pistol shoots. Wayne Evans suggested that he get with Stephen Choate.

Darrell Magby, Jr., reported that Scott Thompson did some grading on the rifle range to deal with run off.  Jim added that there has been some discussion about having a .22 benchrest match after hunting season is past. 

Scott Swain reported that the shotgun program is going well. The shotgun patterning board has 3 large dents in it caused by a slug hitting it.  He asked that members refrain from shooting anything other than shot at the target for safety reasons. Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm, the skeet range is active. Trap is on Tuesday and Thursdays at 1 pm (now on winter hours). Jim Murray added that the possibility of lighting the fields for night shooting is being evaluated.  However, there are multiple issues that need to be dealt with. 

Karen Swain gave a treasurer’s report. She reported credits, debits and balances of both club bank accounts.  One account is referred to as the ‘bird’ account.  There are no checks issued on this account.  It is the account into which all shotgun income is deposited and has been averaging $600 per month since August.  We bought a truck load of clay birds back in June or July.  Scott estimates that the current supply will last at least 12 and possibly 15 more months. The last load cost about $12,000 so there will be ample funds available when we next need to purchase them, assuming the same income and expense pattern continues.  Karen has instituted new internal controls on the cash income from the shotgun range, including a minimum of 2 club members witnessing and signing off on cash counts.  The second account is the ‘membership’ or operating account.  Very few checks are written each month. Since assuming the position as Treasurer, she has deposited $8,505 for membership dues.  A motion was made to accept the treasurer’s report, seconded; the motion passed. 

The following additional topics were discussed: 

Archery range: Safety and expense issues affecting the feasibility of establishing a range were discussed. 

Range safety: Each of the range directors will be reviewing safety rules and practices with a goal of standardizing them.

Concealed carry: Sheriff Brown has done 2 classes for individuals wanting to apply for CCW permits. New legislation has created an enhanced concealed carry law to be effective January, 2018.  However, until a curriculum for ECCW is developed, no enhanced class will be scheduled.  He has offered the class for the cost of a guest fee of $5 which he has paid to CCSC. 

Donny Hyslip reported that there has been youth shoot offs in trap and .22 rifle. Some juniors went to the nationals in North Dakota. 

Motion to adjourn was made by Donny Hyslip, seconded by Scott Swain.  Motion passed. 

The meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m.

 Karen Swain, CCSC Secretary/Treasures

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.
