The next club meeting will be held on May 29, 2019, at 8 pm. 

The weekly NASP shooting sessions have slowed significantly with the spring sports season, and the club is now open all nights for member use. The indoor range is open with shooting fees being $3 for electricity and targets, while the outdoor and 80-yard range are free.

The road over the hillside should be getting redone soon. A specific date hasn’t been set yet but it’s looking to be done before our first league shoot at the latest. This will open it to 4x4 trucks for firewood and course prep.

The monthly CVB 3D shoot will return to the third Sunday of the month for the remainder of the season. Set ups will be the Friday night before the shoot at 5 p.m. as well. The first league shoot of the season will be Rochester on June 9. Our next shoot will be Sunday, May 19 with set up on Friday, May 17 at 5 p.m. Any help is appreciated!

Meeting:
January 2. Next meeting: January 30 at 8 p.m.

The Indoor 600 League is underway and runs for the first thirteen weeks of the year. It’s $3 a week to help cover electricity and targets. Participants are randomly assigned to teams and scoring is based on each individual’s improvement on their own average. Scoring is not impacted by the overall scores of archers or their teams. This is open to all, and any skill level can participate- including family members. Scores are to be turned into the Score box by the door with your name, date, and the week number included. Scores can be shot at any time and can be made up or shot ahead of time as necessary.

The club will be closed on Thursday nights for the Riverside NASP program. This will be every Thursday night throughout the school year. The fencing club will also continue using the club on Tuesday nights throughout the winter. If you are shooting the indoor league or just intend to use the indoor range, please try to do so earlier in the day, on the outdoor range instead, or on an alternative night. The large bathroom will also be closed for NASP storage. The heater is on so please keep the bathroom door closed.

The quarter-operated furnace has been refilled and will be operational for fifty cents for about twenty minutes. It is located in the office near the target room. There is wood available for the wood furnace as well.

With the tree tops left from the loggers there is an abundance of firewood over the hillside. There will be scheduled work days for processing this wood through the year, and members that help cut and stack will be able to take wood for their personal use.

We hope everyone has had a wonderful New Year and we hope to see you all this season!
