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.
August UPDATE 08/07/2020
Due to the recent reporting of the increasing spike of COVID-19 cases in our region, we find our organization faced with more difficult decisions. We are very short of range safety officers at this time. We WILL NOT be able to maintain our typical operating schedule for the rifle/pistol ranges. This is due to many of our RSOs in the "high-risk" category that cannot serve their normal schedule. Occasionally we are having to alter our operating hours. At this time, we will try to maintain the regular schedule as much as we possibly can. Always check our online RSO calendar (click the red and yellow box on the top right corner of the home page) to confirm that a range safety officer is scheduled for duty before assuming that the range will be open. The rifle/pistol ranges cannot be used without a range safety officer present. We appreciate everyone's patience, support and understanding during these events. Please check here often for any updates.
THERE IS TO BE NO USE OF THE RIFLE/PISTOL RANGE WITHOUT AN RSO PRESENT
