Club News & Announcements
Posted June 28, 2015
Although we talk about the Kitsap County Shooting Range Ordinance fairly frequently at monthly meetings there hasn’t been anything broadly distributed for a while. This week there were two news items in the Bremerton paper on the topic so now is a good time to touch on it again.
Along with the articles there were some reader comments attached that are worth spending a moment on, here, not there, and no we don’t routinely go public with our issues, so this is the only place you will see these comments.

Gate Card Training Classes
Updated June 28, 2015
The last of the recent series of new member orientation and gate card training classes was held today. At this time we do not have any future classes on the schedule. However, we will start a waiting list and hold a class when we get enough interest.
For background, if you want to qualify for an afterhours gate card you need this class. There is a $5 charge for the card. If you are a new member and would like an overview of club rules and how the rifle and pistol ranges operate, you probably want to attend. You only need to take one class, they are one session and will start in the club house and conclude on the ranges. Eye and ear protection are required for the range tour.
To get on the waiting list send an e-mail to email@example.com with the subject line gate card waiting list. Include your contact information and membership number.

Weekly updates from the Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) of WA are posted on our Government Relations page here. Stay current and stay involved. This is a good place to start.
