Special Members Meeting

During the September 2021 Membership Meeting the additions, deletions, and corrections were gone over; those members in good standing made their vote to change or not change. The members in good standing not present will get a ballot in mail to be returned by the October meeting where the votes will be tallied.

Thank you to all who participated, as discussed at the Club meeting this is an important part of being a Member at a club.


Membership Requirement: When you have guests (2), friends or family, it is mandatory to have them fill out the Liability form. Do not risk your membership by not following the requirement.

  • It was noticed yesterday, and last week that “you” didn’t fill out any paperwork. We have a nice range, to continue to be a part of it, follow the rules.
  • Club Cameras are underway, be sure if you see any activity that is not appropriate that you record license plate number, description of vehicle and person and report.
  • Update: The Pistol range steel has arrived- 4 cool pieces, we now have two dueling trees, use the smaller one for your 22’s only, the other tree was hard to flip with a 22 so we went forward and purchased one rated for ***22 only.                PLEASE use centerfire on the existing (bigger tree) not the new one!

Club Needs/ Wants

This weekend one of the Members said we should reach out and ask Membership about items the club needs or wants.

You never know what someone may no longer need or has extra of or may want to purchase and donate to the club.

You can be provided with a Tax Donation Slip.

So, we will add to the list as needed and see if we may be able to supply the club with items that would be useful.

Of course, these items must be in good working order. Thank you.

  • Pressure  washer (Speaking of pressure washing, it was just done & the building looks amazing, it would be great to have one on site to use as needed so it doesn’t build up- Thanks Rodney and Brad!)
  • Weedwhacker
  • A metal box for storage like the one on the Rifle Range (will get a photo), or something similar
  • Magnet pole for Pistol Range
  • White Target Board for Ranges, this is a regular item in need (we order from: About Us (absolutelygraphic.com)
  • Flat screen TV for clubhouse safety classes, wall hanger

Thank you to Chief Bucknam of the Skowhegan Police Department for the last donation of Target Board!
