New "Tennessee Concealed Carry Handgun Permit" Establishment.
The Tennessee Legislature has pass a bill establishing the new Handgun Carry Permit and Governor Lee has signed it. The bill takes effect on July 1, 2019, but it contains an "effective date" for the implementation of the new permit of January 1, 2020. We don't expect to have any details about its availability, or the specific requirements to obtain the new permit, until January 1st.
Our Club's General Membership Meetings for 2019 will be held on the following dates. We will start the meal at 6:30 pm with the membership meeting to commence directly afterwards.
All current 2019 members are invited to attend.
We are experiencing a shortage of volunteer range safety officers (RSO) for the rifle/pistol range.
The rifle/pistol range is only open for use when a RSO is on duty to supervise the safe use of the facility.
For us to maintain our regular daily (Monday-Sunday) operating schedule, we must have more volunteers to support us with our range safety officer program. If we do not have trained volunteers to serve as RSO's,
we will have to adopt an abbreviated operating schedule for our rifle/pistol range.
This will be dictated by the number of available support volunteers. Members need to check the online RSO schedule before coming to the range to confirm that a RSO is scheduled for the shift.
If you are interested in volunteering for our RSO program, please call
Joshua Hyatt at (423) 943-3827 for more information.
We will be having a hunters education FIELD DAY on Saturday October 19th 2019.
