We will start at 1 pm with a pot luck lunch.
Immediately following the meeting, weather permitting, at approximately 2 p.m. we have the open range available to anyone, members and non-members wanting to shoot handguns or rifles.
The cost is $1.00 for members and $5.00 for non-members. 

Trap shooting is also available and the prices for trap are $5 per round of 25 or$10.00 for members and $12.00 for non-members to shoot the entire day. 
Eye and ear protection is required.

We will have a swap table at every meeting, so bring any shooting related items you would like to sell.


 Trauma first aid course

Immediately following our meeting, we will conduct a trauma first aid course.
This is a refresher course for those who attended the last session, but is highly recommended for any new RSOs or any member who would like to learn more about immediate first aid response.
All new RSOs who attend will receive a trauma kit.
Anyone who took the course last time and received a trauma kit is asked to bring it so that it can be replenished if needed.
This is not a certified Red Cross course.
Contact  for more information.
