Special points of interest: 

New Steel Target Plates for Rifle Range    The Board and membership approved new steel plate targets for the rifle range to add more shooting enjoyment. NSC purchased AR500 steel plates for the 50, 75 and 100 yard ranges. For the 50 yard range, a 10", 6" and 3" plates will be anchored left side of target backboards, a 10" plate for the 75 yard range and  3", 6" and 10" plate the 100 yard range. Another reason for the clearing the tree growth on the rifle ranges to position the frames and adding additional tires around the frames. While the project is still work in progress will notify membership prior to completion as shooting the steel plates will require ammo restriction of military grade type rifle ammo. 

 

NSC Work Days for Fall:

We're organizing member volunteers who are retired or have flexible schedules to help with routine maintenance on NSC grounds. We would like to complete these projects this fall so members can continually enjoy the ranges prior to hunting seasons.   NSC would like to remind Associate members of required 20 work hours per year membership requirement. Your volunteering for this work party will be recorded and submitted to membership secretary for credit.  In order to benefit most member’s schedules, please E-mail me your name, day’s most convenient to volunteer so we can schedule the work party and tools and/or utility trailer you're able to contribute. We're thinking of starting early in the mornings when it’s much cooler for everyone.    Please E-mail Steve Myers at MDL12skeet@aol.com notate on Subject line "NSC Work Day" so we can schedule the work days to benefit all volunteers. I'll notify members scheduling work days by Email.

These new cards will be permanent and will not be replaced each year. If you lose your card it will be a $10 fee for replacement.

ATTENTION Bi-Laws Change

July 22, 2015

 

Notice to all members: At the December meeting, we approved to amend the bi-laws to exempt club members' children from the 3 visit limit regardless of age to encourage more family time. They must still be accompanied by a club member and fill-out a visitor form located in the black mailboxes at the gate, but there will be no limit on the number of visits.
