Our volunteers are hard at work bringing the range baffle project to completion. The project isn't quite ready yet, but I thought I share some pictures of the work and the progress so far to give us all a little something to look forward to when the range reopens soon.
Once you walk out past the new baffles to set or retrieve your target, the wonderful natural beauty of the range setting remains undisturbed.
Due to the continued low Rifle and Pistol Range usage tied to the COVID-19 outbreak and the spikes in new cases, it has been decided to take advantage of the situation and CLOSE THE RIFLE AND PISTOL RANGES for an estimated 6 weeks in order to perform some major range upgrades and maintenance items that can not be accomplished with the range being open.
There may be opportunities to perform some work hours during these projects.
If you are interested in possibly helping, please forward me your Name and phone number.
You will be contacted when opportunities arise.
This decision comes with the support of the entire Board of Directors and Officers of the Club.
This closure is estimated to be 6 weeks in duration. If the work is completed sooner, the range will reopen earlier.
There is no good time to close the range however by taking advantage of the low usage and with the virus resurgence, it makes sense to perform this work now.
Shotgun and Archery will remain open on their current schedules.
If you have any comments, please direct the to me directly.
Thank you for your understanding and support during these times.

Due to the continuing concerns and restrictions being placed on many segments of our daily lives concerning the COVID-19 Virus, Seattle Rifle and Pistol is CANCELLING ALL organized matches and ALL events that allow the public to use our range until April 30, 2020.
Shotgun's normal Friday and Saturday schedule will also be cancelled/suspended until April 30, 2020.
The range will remain open to MEMBERS and their GUESTS only.
It is very important that we do our absolute best to follow the guidelines that have been laid out by our State and Federal health authorities.
Please be aware of your surroundings and for example if you show up to the range and a group of people (8-10) are there shooting, consider coming back at a later time.
This is not an easy thing to manage as a club and we are therefore relying on our members to assist us in using good judgement.
I have included an information summary from the Department of Health that covers the main points to pay close attention to during this COVID-19 outbreak.
Please keep in mind that I have talked to all of the Board Members and Officers of Seattle Rifle and Pistol and they have been given the authority to close the range at anytime if a situation develops that they feel is contrary to the best interest of the club operations.
We are continually monitoring the situation for any changes and/or directives from our government officials.
Any changes to the above "policy" will be communicated to the members as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and support during these difficult times.
