Nov. 2022 Board Letter

Letter from the Board of Directors

Martinsville Sportsman’s Conservation Club

 

November 2022

Renewal time is once again upon us.  We hope that everyone has had a chance to spend many pleasant hours at the club this year.

The club has put more steel on the ranges for your shooting pleasure.  Texas Stars are on all but two of the bays now.  Hopefully they will not raise your blood pressure too much.

After the review of things that the members would like to see added we have a contractor under contract to add three pull offs to the access road to the range.  This is to eliminate the need for us to back all the way to one end if we meet someone on the road.

New clay throwers have been added to the shotgun field.  Grab your smooth bores, some bird shot and a box of clays and come try them out!  Remember to bring your own battery.

We would like to take this opportunity to point out some of the items to remember when you come to the club:

You are required to wear your badge/entrance card any time you are on club property.

·        Please take a few seconds to review the signs on the shelters to see if there are new items to be aware of.

·        If there are closure signs and you are not sure what they mean – please err on the side of more caution/safety rather than less.

·        Please be courteous to all others on the ranges.

·        Steel core ammo and 50 BMG ammo is not allowed to be shot at our steel targets. This includes common green tip AR ammo as it has a steel core penetrator.

We look forward to another successful and safe year and we hope that you all renew your membership.
