RSO:  The Club needs more Range Safety Officers. We are planning a Range Safety Class once the Covid-19 pandemic slows.  The responsibility of the RSO is to work and oversee the Range during their volunteer time slots. Assisting with new member safety orientation is a plus to become familiar with the Range rules.  Our goal is to keep the Range safe for all. RSO’s can also be helpful to new shooters & visitors who may not be familiar with the rules. Contact Ellen at if you would like to volunteer. 

For those of you that are currently RSO’s, we would like your help to oversee safety at our facility. If you haven’t been through safety orientation in the last year, please contact me to  schedule a time to go through a refresher Our goal this year is to have RSO coverage at the Range on the weekends. I will begin asking RSO’s to fill time slots for weekend coverage very soon.

Thank you to all the RSO’s who have volunteered to help with the monthly Orientations.  A special thanks to Richard Dalman, Terry Obrien, Dan Thomas & Gary Kessler who have spent an extraordinary amount time volunteering.

General Reminders:
If the power is out &/or the phone line is out – THE RANGE IS CLOSED. - Lights, sirens and phone line must all be operational for the range to be open for use. If the power goes out while you are on the range, please secure/lock up and leave. Contact the board ASAP to make us aware. If you arrive and there are signs up that say ‘Closed due to power outage’ (after a power outage) and the power is back on – please contact the board BEFORE using the range to ensure everything is back on & working correctly. All 3 things need to be fully functioning for the range to be open for use. 

  • Always check the calendar BEFORE going to the range – there are days/times when the range is closed due to disciplines, weather conditions or range maintenance.   
  •  Always fully lock up and secure the range if you are the last one to leave.  All lights are to be shut off, the rifle range shed locked up and the main gate properly locked. 
  • Smoking and vaping are prohibited on all areas of the range and parking lot according to our lease agreements.
  •  Pistol caliber carbines and rifle caliber pistols are only allowed on the rifle range, the pistol bays are for pistols in pistol calibers and .22lr only. 
  • There is NO garbage service at SVRC -  pack it in and pack it out 

Thank You,
