Your Board of Directors are always looking to make WCFW a safe environment for all our members, guests and event participants. As a result, we have spent many hours with a team to look at any recent safety violations and concerns on the range. The BOD accepted and put into law these updated Range Safety Rules at the December meeting. We hope that they are easier to understand and abide by so that all of us can remain safe on the range no matter what we are doing. Remember, it’s ultimately up to YOU as a member to ensure the safe operation of firearms wherever you are on the range. Click on the link in this post or visit the RESOURCES page to explore all the PDF documents related to range safety and more. Remember the 4 Cardinal Rules of Gun Safety even when off the range no matter where you are.
From your Weld County Practical Shooters President.
The weather forecast for Galeton looks a bit rough this Sunday, so there will be no WCPS match for December. We’ll try again In January.
I hope all of you out there enjoy the coming holidays and get to spend them with the people you care about.
The Steel Challenge Match regularly scheduled for Saturday 12/7 is cancelled due to range conditions.
For more on our current conditions see an update from Groundskeeper Jan…
All South Berms are ready for foot traffic only… The drive ways to the berms have been blocked with cones and/or red trash containers with sand bags to weight them down. The berm areas still have a lot of snow & moisture that needs to dry up. The North 4 berms are still full of snow & a large drift has filled the area just to the east of the porta potty – about 4′ deep. All this snow will need to melt & dry out.
The area around the Clubhouse has been bladed with Dennis Miller snow blowing one each of Skeet & Trap fields. Big thanks to Dennis!
With the amount of snow/ice all over the range…please encourage members to be patience…. it will be a process to get the berms useable to more than foot traffic.
