       We're still under restrictions from the Governor's edicts earlier.  Also, we are trying to decipher the EOs coming from his office as to whether we can have organized matches or not.  The next update is set for 28 May, so I will update this page after it's determined whether we can resume our usual activities after that time.  As it stands at present, there will be no organized range activities before 10 June.  The ranges remain open to members and guests.

  • 24 March 2020 - Match Cancellations!
    Effective, 24 March 2020, all organized shooting events at our club are canceled with the exception of Skeet.  Skeet matches will continue with the stipulations mentioned earlier: members and guests only, supplying their own clay targets on Wednesdays only, no Saturday shoots until further notice.

    All other organized events, including monthly meetings are canceled until further notice here in this "News" section of our web site home page.  Questions should be addressed to Jeff Bertrand whose contact info is in the "Contact Us" section of this home page.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding in these trying times.  The ranges remain open for members and guests at all times as in the past for use at their discretion.

       Just a reminder for members that the range will close at 4:30 P.M. on Saturdays through the end of March as the Lion's club is hosting Turkey Shoots on those days starting at 5:00 P.M.

    Due to a shortage of targets, the Skeet match on 29 January will be for members and invited guests only as will the following Wednesday Skeet matches.  These matches will be at the regularly scheduled time of 10:00. 

    There will be no further Saturday Skeet events until further notice. They will occur after more targets are acquired.  Notice of the continuation of these Saturday events will be posted here when the change in circumstance happens. 

    We apologize for the inconvenience!

       Entries are slowly filling up the roster for the Overlord Memorial Cup Regional NRA Action Pistol Championship and the Cardinal Cup Va State NRA Action Pistol Championship matches at the end of September.  Get your entries in before the September 8th deadline if you plan to shoot with us in case we fill up as has happened in the past with some shooters being turned away.  These are the largest AP matches east of the Mississippi and the third largest in the U.S.

       The prize tables will be visited by random drawing, so everyone has a chance at the "good stuff".  Anticipated prizes will exceed $10,000 with over half that already received.

       Work was needed on B range (Practical/Bullseye/Rimfire Benchrest) due to "bullet erosion" on the crossties from Bullseye and Rimfire Benchrest matches.  The replacement of those was projected to take 2 days to complete and the range was originally to be closed on August 19th and 20th.  More volunteers than anticipated showed up to get the work done!

       Due to the talent and commitment of John Vinblad, Jeff Bertrand, Gary Gallion, Steve Kalinski and Clark Spencer the "two day" project on range B of tearing down the old crossties and replacing with the new timber took five hours.  The crew worked diligently in the 95+ degree weather in order to complete the project.  The work is 95% complete with the need to allow the lumber to dry, seal it, and paint numbers on the designated the target areas before the matches next month.

       Thanks again for a job well done.
