we have decided to hold our first ever meat raffle, income from which
will be ear marked for specific club improvements. The first
improvement this year is mentioned below. Later this year we hope to
install hot water base board heating in the club house and may run
another meat raffle to generate income for that purpose. The raffle
will be for two $500 gift certificates, only one winner per ticket,
redeemable at Tom’s Meats, Brookville, PA. ONLY 400 tickets will
be sold at $5.00 each. FOR ENTRY CONTACT BIFF OR OTHER CLUB OFFICER.

plan to remove some large rocks and then cover entire drive way with 2B
gravel. Finances permitting, we may also widen the parking area behind
the line. Also, posting safety signs around the range is on our list of
things to do. There are a lot of people riding ATV/UTV’s in the area

red lights have been installed on the firing line. Their purpose is to
assist in range control and safety. When the red lights are ON
someone is downrange or wanting to go down range.
the range is
for use by members only. Members may bring guest(s) on occasion. Eye and
ear protection required. Please make certain that every shot you
fire stops in one of the backstops. Police the range and remove all of
your targets when finished.
the shotgun backstop, located to the left of the shooting benches and
built of rail road ties, is not to be shot with anything other than
shotguns loaded with shot shells and .22 rim fires.
ONLY .22 rim fire ammo is authorized; standard velocity ammo
recommended; eye and ear protection required.
