CLUB INTRODUCTION

Introduction:


Welcome to the Coast Rifle and Pistol Club! Please remember our club is a member’s club organized and chartered for the promotion of shooting sports. There are many volunteers who make this club a success. These volunteers 

run the various matches and club activities for members. If you see something that needs fixing or you have a skill that can help improve the club, we strongly encourage you to contact a board member and offer your help. Your support of the club is important!


This club has five elected (non-paid) officers. They answer to the membership. The officers provide the administrative support for day-to-day operations. Members are asked to help with range projects and shooting events. Please 

treat your club with respect and always leave the range and buildings clean.


It is important to remember that membership in this club is a privilege not a right.


The club pays to have the Range cleaned weekly. The cleaning contract is only 

to empty trash cans, general clean-up, and hang new target backer boards. Always pick up all the trash you generate while at the range and any other trash you see. When each member leaves the range better than they found it, there will be fewer club cleanup expenses. Always clean up your brass and sweep  your firing position when you are done shooting. Place empty brass cases in the 5-gallon buckets. Place steel cases, used targets, and trash in the trash barrels.


Club meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 PM. 

At these meetings the CRPC Officers, Board Members and general members, discuss club business. This is your chance to voice your opinions or recommendations about club projects. Club Officers and Board members vote on current issues at these monthly meetings. Once a year, usually in January, the club holds the annual meeting. Club issues which requires a vote of the general membership are presented and voted on during the annual meeting. During the annual meeting your CRPC club officers are elected to their non-paid positions. Officers are elected for 3-year terms. If you would like to be a club officer, please make it known and run for the office. All members are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings and the club’s annual general membership meeting.


Information about the club and its activities is posted on our club web site at www.crpcms.com or www.gcrpc.com. Your Club By-Laws are posted in the clubhouse and on the club web site. The club’s fiscal year runs 01 January to 
31 December. The Club Officers will gladly answer your questions about the Range facilities and their operations. Their contact information is located on the web site and on a sign at the front entrance.


The clubhouse belongs to the members. Please feel free to use it. When you 
use the club house please leave it in the same condition that you found it. Occasionally, the clubhouse is reserved for club matches, training, or other activities. Check the calendar on the web page to avoid a conflict.

 

You may reserve the clubhouse by contacting the Club Secretary. The 

clubhouse training room may be reserved for training activities. There is also a small training annex located near pistol range #5. This building is used for tournament administrative purposes during pistol matches or for small group training.


Hours:


The ranges are open from daylight to dark 365 days a year. Ranges are closed during the hours of darkness. Some ranges may be closed for major range clean up/maintenance, special events, sectioned matches, or when mowing/contract work is being accomplished.


Your badge is your key in and out of the range and also the club house. The automatic entry/exit gate will lock approximately one hour after dark. Please plan accordingly. If you have a guest with a separate vehicle, DO NOT try to get both vehicles through the gate with one badge swipe. Swipe your car through then 
use your badge to swipe your guest through.


Never swipe in someone unless they are your guest. Do not swipe someone through who claims “they forgot their badge.” We forbid shooters without badges from the ranges. (Visitor must have a visitor badge). Tournament competitors 
are exempt the badge rule during the event.

Please note that your badge will automatically stop allowing access to the club should you not pay your annual dues timely.


Range Closures for Events:

 

Range closures for scheduled events will be posted on the club’s website for each range affected. Because this club is chartered to support the promotion of shooting sports, there will be times that one or more ranges will be closed to general shooting. Every attempt will be made to keep at least one range (3A) open during any match. To schedule a shooting event the CRPC Executive Board has established following requirements:


Club members wishing to schedule a shooting event using one or more ranges, must submit a request, in writing, for approval to the club’s Executive Board. Requests are approved at the regular club meeting the month prior to the event.

 

Groups from outside the club wishing to use a range for a shooting event must submit a request, in writing, to the club’s Executive Board. Groups from outside the club may be charged a fee as determined by the Board at the time of the request. A minimum of three (3) weeks advance notice of the event is required.

 

All request will specify: a) The date(s), hours of each day’s usage, b) weapons to be used (i.e.: pistols, rifles, etc.), c) distances to be shot and d) the number of people participating in each event.


All shooters/spectators at shoots will be required to comply with all club rules. 
The club’s Range Safety Officer (RSO), or his designated assistant, must be present. The RSO will have full authority to take appropriate action if a safety violation occurs. Event participants will not be designated as an RSO. There is no fee refund if an event is cancelled, or if an individual is removed from a shoot for non-compliance with established club rules.
