    For Prospective Members and Members wanting a refresher on the rules and regulations of the range.

    Prior to action on a pending membership application, the submitting applicant must complete an safety orientation for the Outdoor Range. The outside orientation familiarizes the applicant with the facilities and the safety and lead management policies of the range.

    Orientations generally begin at 9:20 a.m. on the Saturday before the monthly Club meeting. No live fire shooting is required.

    This orientation is for the outdoor range only. Shooting on the indoor range requires a separate orientation and live fire qualification after the applicant has become a member.

    First time shot gunners and younger shooters, accompanied and supervised by a member are encouraged.

    Cost: $5.00 for members and $6.00 for guests for each round of 25 clay birds; you supply your own ammunition. Steel Shot required. Limited amount of shot may be available for purchase at club if needed.

    Calling all members to volunteer!

    This is a work day to prepare for the IBS Benchrest on Sunday.

    Workdays should be a pleasant experience. Members tend to be friendly and helpful. This is a good way to get to know other members, especially if you are looking for a sponsor. Some of the areas that you may be asked to help with are:

    • General clean-up in the club house
    • Check and tidy-up the bathrooms
    • Clean-up the firing line area in the indoor range
    • Shovel and/or rake dirt on the berms
    • Help set up target holders for an upcoming shoot
    • Help bring trash to the dump

    You may find things that you can do without being asked, there is always some trimming or weed whacking to be done to help the place look neat.

    No one expects you to do work in areas that you are not comfortable with so don’t hesitate to speak up if someone asks you to do something that you can’t or shouldn’t do. If we all do a little, it will make it easier for everybody.
