WEATHER

If the weather is foggy, and you can't see the impact berms, it is NOT SAFE to shoot. Some members had to be reminded of this recently. If you look at this weather station and the humidity level is about 90% or higher, the club is fogged in. We are working on getting a weather camera set up so you will be able to take a look at the current range conditions. We are making progress on getting our weather station back online, and are hopeful it will be back operational soon.

    Five Stand is very similar to Sporting Clays in that a wide variety of targets are thrown. No two five-stand events are exactly alike. There are five “stands” or stations to shoot from. There are 6 traps that throw targets in different presentations. Participants shoot in turn at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown from the traps. There is a menu card that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets and whether its a single, report or true pair.

    Five Stand is a great way to get a Sporting Clays like experience in a small amount of space, with very little walking.

    Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we are not conducting most of the orientation in person at this time. Prior to coming to the range, you are required to view a presentation that you will attest to viewing when you arrive. You are still required to demonstrate your ability to safely handle a firearm. After doing so, we will give you a tour of the facilities. Sessions will be limited to a maximum of 4 attendees per session.

    In order to view the presentation, you must log in to the members only portion of the webpage. Your user ID is the email you used for registration. If you haven't created a password, or forgot yours, you can go here to reset it.

    Bring a firearm with you to do the safe-handling demonstration. Do not bring any ammunition with you to the orientation. If you plan on shooting after the orientation, please leave all ammunition secured in your vehicle.

    A mask is required to be worn at all times outside of your vehicle while on club property.

    This orientation is designed for new members (or those who have let their membership lapse). It covers the 4 basic rules of safe firearms handling, club and range specific rules/policies/procedures, and a hands on demonstration of proficiency of safe firearms handling. A tour of the facility and ranges is included.

    Mandated for all new members.

    Encouraged for all current members.

    Registration is required, as space is limited. Please email Ruthann@wcgc.org to reserve a space for Orientation.
