After three months of hard work by a few members, we have the Rifle Tube ready to re-open, starting this Saturday, 7/23/2016.
The Tube now has an improved bullet trap/ backstop, improved lighting, ventilation system with filters, a video system for the targets, and many other small improvements.
All current Tube-qualified members must either attend an orientation at the Club or review all the old and new rules and procedures and answer some questions before your access to the tube will be turned back on. This WILL NOT require a shooting test.
Members who are not currently qualified to shoot in the Rifle Tube must schedule to do this orientation in person, plus do the shooting portion when they request to be qualified, as is the procedure now.
I have been very busy trying to get the Tube done and do not have the written orientation and questions ready to post online ready. This will happen next week. Once you have read the procedures and answered the questions and replied back to the Tube address, expect 24-48 hours before your badge is turned back on. I will send another message out when the online process is active. The reply address for this will will be at a different email address than mine. firstname.lastname@example.org
Come to the on-site days if you want to get access soonest.
The on-site orientation will take 20-30 minutes to cover the rules and physically show you how to use the video system and the new target backstop system. If you do the online it will take as long as you need. But the on-line will only have the written instructions for the video system and links to the vendor’s site.
We will be doing orientations at the Club this Saturday and Sunday (7/23 and 7/24) from 08:00 to 17:00.
We will be doing orientations at the club on Saturdays (7/30 & 8/6) from 09:00 to 13:00. If enough members show interest, this time may run later.
We will be doing orientations at the club Monday nights (7/25 & 8/1) from 17:00. to 21:00
After that it will be online or by special request and availability of a trainer or the online one.
