August is National Shooting Sports Month and this year we will participate for the first time. Since we are just starting our participation will be limited to waiving the guest fees on the rifle /pistol range on our normal August Guest day.
Next year we would like to have multiple stations (rifle, pistol, shotgun, fishing and archery) open to the public. Marty Sprick will head up the effort so if you have ideas and wish to help plan and participate in August of next year let him know and volunteer to help set up and run it.
We have finished a 7 month effort revising and updating our Range Safety Rules. They will be published on the web site (Document Section) within a week or so and be effective 1 September 2019. PLEASE review the new rules (it will have the new effective date on the first page).
Some of the changes include mandated use of ECI on the rifle range. Additional changes allow Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) and rifle-caliber pistols use on the Pistol range, and other adjustments to procedures to cover our evolved procedures and competitions.
Look at the chapter calendar (web site IWLA.US) to see the many activities we have going on and the planned training and competitions.
