Due to the new requirement of all persons entering the facility having a signed insurance waiver on file the board of directors has opted to halt sending of temporary gate access codes to new and renewing members. We are also discontinuing the mailing of access cards. New and renewing members are required to come pick up their access card in person from a board member. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask that you be patient with us in this transition.

We are currently handing out cards at the range during the following times.
  • Tuesday nights from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
  • 2nd Sunday of every month from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
  • 2nd Saturday of each month from 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The March 2014 Board Meeting is tonight at the Chapter House. The meeting will start at 6:30pm and follow the attached agenda. This is a great opportunity for membership to interact with the Board of Directors as well as get a better understanding of what's going on at the Ikes.

If you haven't picked up your gate access card you can do so at the meeting as well.

After an absolutely brutal winter, we are finally scheduled to get a taste of spring. I can almost hear all the rusty gun safe hinges creaking open. For some of us it has been a little while since we've handled them.

Quick Quiz:
Would you bet your life that you didn't leave a round in the chamber when you packed that gun away?

Always assume the gun is loaded. When you take you gun out of the safe or your range bag, make sure it is pointed in a safe direction and keep you finger off the trigger. Follow safe unloading procedures for your type of firearm and make sure you look into the chamber (or all of them if its a revolver).

Since it has been so long I just wanted to get everyone thinking about gun safety. I have heard too many stories that ended with "... I was sure the thing was unloaded."

Be Safe,
