   In the news now are the efforts to get the September Action Pistol matches Registered with the NRA.  This is being handled by 2 two of our top AP shooters, Greg Davis and Kevin Angstadt along with Melissa and Rob Wilson who volunteered to help coordinate the match duties along with Steve Kalinski handling personnel assignments as before.  We are in hopes that getting those events NRA "sanctioned" again will increase participation once again after the  failure in 2018 to draw the number of competitors who have shot here in the past without NRA Registration.

   Also, there are membership openings available again for the first time in a while after the members voted to drop the membership limit to 100 from 135.  This has been accomplished through attrition along with the aging of the membership.  Those over 70 who have been paying members for at least 5 years are now accorded the status of 'Honorary Life Membership",  don't count in the overall limit of 100 and no longer have to pay dues as an option.  As of this date there are openings for 4 new members.

   The next big events in the shooting community are the season opener for Action pistol on 2 March at our range and the ongoing Cowboy Action Matches that are on the first Sunday of each month year round, weather permitting.

   Starting in April, the Bullseye matches will begin again for the season on the second and fourth Thursday evenings @ 6:00 P.M.  Other events will be added to the calendar after the weather warms in the Spring and requests are made for more events during the monthly meetings.
