Q: Can anyone close the range?                   A: Any member can close the range if they feel there is a safety issue and notify the Range Officer as soon as practical. Members or work contractors can close the range if they are acting with authority of the Club Officers to perform scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. In cases of scheduled maintenance every effort will be made to post the range closure on the clubs website ahead of time. If you need to close the range and know in advance, email the Club Webmaster to get the posting on the Club website home page and Calendar.
