Hanson Rod & Gun Club April 2016 Newsletter

Regarding Our Range Safety Officers (RSOs)

They are there to help uphold the rules as well as to assure an enjoyable but safe experience while you are shooting on the club ranges. To date the Hanson Rod and Gun Club has maintained a great track record throughout our sixty plus years of operation. It is everyone’s responsibility, members, directors and officers, to continue this effort to help enforce a safe environment for all who attend. In closing, thank you for your continuing understanding and cooperation.

All members should take note that part of the overall purpose of this organization to be formed originally was the advancement of a club Junior Rifle Program. I have been associated with this club in one way or another for 46 years and we have never had a program as advanced as this one!! Good Luck to Matt, Ricky, Mike, Jack and our club coaches Mark, Bob and Justin!! May your success continue!…………….Bob P.

To all members: Please refrain from using clay pigeon targets on the rifle and pistol ranges!

Until next month……Bob P.
