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 email surrealchef@dogfuzz.net

 for more information. 

NOTICE!

Due to a lack of volunteer range safety officers, we will have to limit our days of operation for the rifle/pistol range. We will not be opening the rifle/pistol range at the regular times on Tuesdays or Thursdays until further notice. 

We will be having an evening opening on the 3rd and 17th of June and July 1st , 15th and 29th from 5pm-9pm.


We regret this inconvenience. If you would like to volunteer to help with our RSO program, more information is listed below
