Sharp Club members will note the range procedures and caliber map were sent out again this month. The CCGC Board has decided to declare the procedures and calibers part of a “living document” that can be changed as necessary. The version last month garnered a lot of interest and comments, resulting in the newest version you find here.
The Board has asked me to re-activate the Club’s Facebook page. It wasn’t getting much use, so I stopped using it and sent people here to the Club’s web page, instead. We will now use Facebook as a way of announcing upcoming events and items of interest to members and other visitors, so be sure you use the CORRECT address:
Any other pages you may have seen or looked at are imposters.
Finally, as we begin to wrap up another year of business, the Board is still seeking volunteer assistance with a number of important positions in the Club. If you are interested, just let me know by responding to this e-mail and I’ll forward your name on to the Board. We are seeking 1) a Membership Coordinator; 2) a Door Access Coordinator; 3) a Bookkeeper; and 4) Members interested in a Board Member position for 2018. Each position is a rewarding way to give back to the Club that offers so much more than most other clubs in the area for so little investment.
August is National Shooting Sports Month!
We know you don’t need an excuse to go target shooting, but beginning August 1 you’ll have one. The first National Shooting Sports Month will focus attention on the fun and excitement of recreational shooting. Enjoy a round of trap or sporting clays, improve your handgun skills or give precision rifle a try. Experienced shooters are asked to introduce family members and friends to this rewarding lifetime activity. Don’t have a mentor? CCGC members would be glad to get involved, or another range near you will help you get started. Share your experience with #LETSGOSHOOTING.
Rifle Tube Update from reopening on July 23, 2016 – January 31, 2017
Different caliber/types recorded as fired: 99
Rounds recorded as fired: 22,597
Grains of projectiles recorded as fired: 2,071,637
Pounds of projectiles recorded as fired: 295.95 (Average of approximately 47.5 pounds per month. Add approx. 15% for non recorded shots = approx. 52 pounds per month.
Next best guess at a scheduled clean out of the backstop at approximately
2500 pounds of projectiles in the backstop would be in the Spring of 2020)
Air Filters changed 10 times.
Camera antenna hit twice, cut the cable.
Camera Power cable hit and cut once
Target holder sticks shot 3 time each
Both Chrono Light mounts hit at least twice
There is an update to the Bullseye Camera Target Manager Software. Be sure to update the one on your phone as it allows you to record screen shots of the targets at each round.
Yesterday, the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee considered House Bill 1097, legislation to repeal the 2013 anti-self-defense law that limits the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold. Unfortunately, the House committee voted on a party-line vote to defeat the bill and continue to prevent law-abiding Coloradans from being able to effectively defend themselves and their loved ones.
