Embriodered range hats and shirts!

This is a range fundraiser aimed at helping us purchase a new skeet thrower. Thanks to Mark's work, we now have custom made hats and sweatshirts. Hats are one size fits all and in various colors for $15. Sweatshirts are heavy weight in Navy Blue. L & XL are $30, 2XL is $32.50 and 3XL is $35. Hooded sweatshirts will also be available.

Please Note: The pistol range remains open even during scheduled shoots taking place on the left side of the range.

And a Warning: Shooters using AR pistols are destroying steel reactive targets on the pistol range. Those and all magnum calibers are prohibited for that very reason.

......Please Read & Heed......

New target frame bases have been installed at the 50 and 100-yard berms.
They are not to be moved nor shot at for any reason.
Doing so will be considered willful destruction of range property and the offender will be billed for the damage and lose range privileges for the remainder of the year.

2023 Range Waiver

Waivers are legal documents, so older waivers with cross outs
and 2023 written in are not acceptable for next year

Thanks to Dennis Morand and Mark Abb these signs have been posted out back of the range. Thanks to them we will no longer have to shut down during November.

Here's what the 12" x 18" signs look like...

This is from an article entitled "The Best Shooting Ranges in Maine" :

Knox CountyBeaver Lodge Fish & Game Association – Union
is an all-around outdoor experience not only for shooting, it’s also great if you want to experience shooting outdoors. They have an outdoor pistol range that has realistic simulations added to it. 
Using these simulations, you can train yourself to face a home invasion,a hostage situation, or a terrorists attack that will help you prepare if those situations do happen in real life.
There is also a classroom, a backyard, and an offhand barricade. They also have other shooting activities you can try like the memorial skeet shoot, pins ‘n plates, redneck clays, and black powder.

Work on the range is ongoing, and we are making progress. There is always plenty to do and volunteers are always welcome. If you come to help, don't forget to ask about our work incentive cards. Annual dues are $125, but if that's not in your budget, you should be interested in what the KCF&G ByLaws have to say on the subject...

§ 3. Members may reduce their annual dues by participating in the work incentive program. Dues are reduced $5.00 for each hour worked at the club up to the cost of their membership. Respective club officers are to approve the scope of the work beforehand and verify the member's hours.
