General Club News
If you have been to the range lately, you have noticed that there has been a lot of construction and other activities. It is a busy time for your MCSA. AND it is going to continue.
Since the January meeting, the MCSA Board of Directors have been hard at work making improvements to the property. Some of the completed projects are:
1. Fencing of the property has been moved and improved. This will allow more parking for our members.
2. Trees and brush around Range 5 berms have been trimmed for easier access.
3. Road millings have been placed down onto our driveway, parking lot, and future trailer space. The future trailer space has been graded and ready. If you are wondering what the green “sculpture” in the front of the club is, it is a septic tank from the days of the Sheriff’s sharing the range.
4. Work on Range 5 improvements has begun. We know that the 100 yard impact area is not perfect at this time. Make sure that your shooting bench can see your target. Some lanes are not lined up. This is temporary. Thanks for your patience. Work will continue on Range 5 beginning the first week of April. Expect some range closures to come. Range 6 will be open for rifle shooting when Range 5 needs to be closed. Our plan is to keep the time of any range closure to the shortest time possible and with the greatest amount of safety for all. We will be sending out e-mail blasts as soon as we know the schedule of our contractors.
5. MCSA HAS AN ELECTRIC ENTRY GATE!!!!
Our new gate became operational on Thursday afternoon, March 28th. Feedback from members has been extremely positive. If you have not been to the range, the system is very easy to use. When you arrive at the range, you will see a post on the left side of the road several feet from the gate. That has a keypad on it. Put in the SAME code that the old gate required. The gate will open to the left. You will have 25 seconds to proceed into the parking lot. The gate will close automatically. When you want to leave the range, proceed to the gate. The gate will open automatically and close after you drive away. If have any problems, just ask for assistance from the on-duty Range Officer.
