Fall Adult Rifle/Pistol League Signups This Week!

We will be starting our Fall Adult Rifle/Pistol League soon! We are shooting on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings (your choice), with signups starting August 30 and the league ending November 15. The winter leagues will start immediately after completion of the fall leagues. All league shooters must be EPM members at Birchwood. In addition to our regular Adult League, we are also offering a new Beginners Adult League more suitable for novice and less experienced shooters. This league will shoot on Thursday evenings only, on a separate range. If you wish to shoot the Adult League, or the Beginners League, you must sign up at one of the mandatory safety meetings on August 30 and September 2. Returning league shooters may opt to sign up early on August 25. All meetings start promptly at 7pm at the Rifle/Pistol range office. The cost is $65 per gun for the 10-week league. Shooters may use a centerfire (non-magnum) handgun, centerfire (non magnum) pistol-caliber carbine, rimfire handgun (.22LR), rimfire rifle (.22LR), or a combination of these (maximum 3 for adult league, 1 for beginners league). This is a low-cost friendly competitive shooting league – come have fun and challenge yourself! See the attached flyer.

Ongoing Construction Closures on “A” Range

Work is continuing on the high berm between our property and the neighboring property. Because of this, our 300 meter “A” Range will be closed again in the mornings later this week and all of next week. These closures will be in effect from 7am to 11am on Thursday and Friday June 22-23, and again from 7am to 11am each day next week from Monday June 26 to Friday June 30. Members will be able to continue shooting on “A” Range each day after 11am. For your convenience, our 200 meter “B” Range will remain open to shooters as usual most of these days. The closures are because of construction. This large berm is being built between the left side of “A” Range and the adjacent property for safety reasons, at no cost to the club. Thank you, BRSP Management
