Please use extra care when using the ranges in the winter. Make absolutely sure that you DO NOT leave anything on the ground that can get caught up in the snow blower. Someone left a small metal target on the ground and it ended up in the snow blower. Luckily, there were no damages or injuries.
If you see a steel target has fallen from a damaged hanger, put it in the sign up shack so it can be replaced. Better yet, feel free to re hang it yourself if you are able.
Remember to clear snow away before shooting so you can pick up your brass.

Thank you to all members for your understanding in closing the DRGC ranges while we all navigated this past weeks tragedy. The ranges are now open to members 9:00am until sunset. Please keep strictly to these hours.
In light of the recent and ongoing shooting and man hunt so close to home, we have decided that it is best to keep the ranges closed . Please stay safe and keep your families close.
Clear snow away before shooting to aid in brass pick up.
Remove taped on or stapled paper targets from the coroplast (plastic) backing when finished shooting.
Store the 25 yard target stand bases under the roof so they are clear for snow removal and they don’t freeze to the ground.
Watch out for icy conditions. Spread sand over slippery areas with sand from the shed behind the clubhouse.
Thaw out the gate lock if found icy.
Help out by removing snow whenever possible.
Obey the speed limit on Pound road and on club property, visibility is reduced and stopping times are increased.
Make sure club house doors are closed and locked and that the heat isn’t set too high or low. 60 degrees is more than adequate for freeze protection and for warming up from the cold outside.
