Overview & Purpose
The Garden Club (GC) is a Snoqualmie Valley Rifle Club (SVRC) discipline dedicated to teaching women to shoot. We are led by women for women in our community. Students of any skill level are welcomed, from pure novice upwards. We focus on teaching pistol shooting, safety and self-defense in a supportive environment.
The Director of Garden Club leads events and coordinates with the range, SVRC, Board.
Garden Club Rules
All instructors, RSOs, students and guests must sign a waiver for our range, the SVRC waiver, and obey the official Range and Safety Rules of the SVRC. See http://www.svrifle.org/range-rules.html for SVRC Range and Safety Rules.
In order to provide a comfortable and welcoming place for women all participants must be women! Men can only attend as invited instructors/RSOs or on special designated co-ed training days. Otherwise, men will be asked to leave.
You must have completed a basic gun safety class (for example the New Shooter class provided by SVRC), or have some personal/professional firearms experience before attending Garden Club. If you are unsure, please contact and ask the Director of the Garden Club.
Attend with a positive attitude about guns and shooting. We are a very Pro 2A group. While we want everyone to be safe, and to educate about guns, our goal is to have fun and build community.
The Garden Club schedule is published on the SVRC calendar, http://www.svrifle.org/calendar.html.
For the 2023 season, we meet every Tuesday of the month in the evenings, from 6 - 9pm. Our yearly schedule runs from the beginning of April to October. Shooting skills build on each other, so while new students are always welcomed and accommodated, it is beneficial to come as often as possible to develop skill sets.
