Bill plans to hold two more R.S.O. classes this year with special emphasis on safety. To be announced.
The Safety Committee will be updating our range rules. Will be looking for member input. Please give ideas or suggestion to an R.S.O. or Board member.

Our club “may” give first aid classes to our members sometime in the future.
Because of our R.S.O. program and Safety Committee, our Club is much safer than ever before.
