GENERAL CLUB NEWS


2019 was a busy time for your MCSA.  Many improvements to the club were made by your Board of Directors. The Board wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hopes all members come out to MCSA to enjoy your range. The range is operating smoothly and safely as never before. 

Here are some of the 2020 First Quarter News topics:

The MSCA Annual Membership Meeting, Board of Directors Elections and Member's Picnic
are scheduled for Sunday January 12th, 2020. The Membership Meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. The Board members will provide information about the Club, finances, growth, changes, etc. Any questions members may have will be answered. The Board wants to hear what members want going forward in 2020.
The terms of several Board members are expiring in January and there will be elections to re-elect or elect Board members.
At the end of the meeting, a picnic will take place. There will be hamburgers and hotdogs with all the trimmings. Soft drinks will be provided. Once the picnic is completed and all areas are cleaned up, the range will be open for shooting. This is usually around 1:00 p.m. Prior to the 10:00 a.m. meeting, the club will be open at 8:00 a.m. for members to have a Swap Meet. Please remember that firearms are not allowed to be displayed or sold at the Swap Meet on MCSA property. Photos are great though.

$20.00 Guest Fee
took effect on August 1, 2019. The number of guests a member can bring at one time is limited to 2. Of course, there may be a special event or time of year that a member would like to bring more guests, such as a family re-union, etc. A simple call ahead to the on-duty Range Officer can usually work this out.


CARL PHAIR


A Special Thank You!
During 2019, the Board began recognizing MCSA members that donated time and effort to the club in some way. We want to continue this feature in 2020.  Range 4 is one of our most popular ranges. It gets a lot of use for sure.  Steel targets get tired and eventually need repair. We have two members that are welders.  Carl Phair and Garrett Benson have been repairing broken targets and stands for some time now. If you see them shooting, give them a big Thank You!!!


The Club has a few MCSA t-shirts and polo shirts left
When you visit the Club, just ask the RO about them. We also have a few hats. We will be getting a new shipment of MCSA apparel before the January 12th Membership Meeting.

SAFETY RULES & REMINDERS

Our range is a safe range. In order to keep the range a safe place to shoot, we will continue to address trends or concerns that our Range Officers see and deal with daily.
With the location of the new Range Office AND the signage posted at several locations that remind members to check-in with the on-duty RO, we are seeing many members going past the RO office without checking in.  PLEASE check-in when you visit the range. It is for your safety. And the safety of all members.
Range Officers have noticed an increase in members not displaying proper muzzle control. Proper muzzle control is keeping the muzzle pointed downrange at ALL times.
Firearms are to be uncased or cased AT the firing line when the range is HOT. Uncasing a firearm BEHIND the firing line and bringing the firearm to the firing line is NOT ALLOWED.
Remember to sign-in at Range #5 and Range #6.
MCSA is your range. If you see something that is not safe or not allowed, say something. If you are not comfortable in discussing a situation with a fellow member, contact the on-duty Range Officer and let them deal with it. 
We want to keep our club safe and friendly for everyone.

FROM YOUR BOARD

The Board of Directors hope that you enjoy the quarterly newsletters to keep you more informed about your club.  Please let us know if you have any suggestions, etc. by talking with Dan Aguilar when you are at the range.

Next newsletter will be posted April 1, 2020. 

We trust you will enjoy the improvements to your range in 2020.
