A letter from our Creakers Club President, 18 September 2020

Good Morning Creakers.

 On Sept 17th the Board held its monthly meeting. Information from the meeting is:

  1. Positive feedback from the Fun Shoot on the September 14th. One of the suggestions was that there should be more coordination for people waiting in line. We will address that issue for future Fun Shoots.
  2. There is a .22 rifle match on the September 23rd. If you want to attend please contact Skip at sandn.lvconnect@cox.net and sign up. More information on this match forthcoming.
  3. There was interest by owners of Ruger 10-22 rifles to attend a short class on how to have a better understanding on how this rifle functions. Tips and tricks so to speak.  The suggestion was made that 20 minutes prior to the .22 rifle match on the 23rd, Jim Daigle would teach a class on this. If you are interested in this class, please contact Jim Daigle at jjdaigle@embarqmail.com.  Based on interest will determine if the class is held. Also there will be a Long Range Rifle match on September 25th, please contact Jim Daigle if interested.
  4. The night shoot for Oct 19th is cancelled.
  5. There will be a Fun Shoot on Oct 21st. It will be similar to the shoot held on September 14th.
  6. There will be a Long Range rifle match on Oct 23rd.
  7. There will be a .22 Rifle match on Oct 28th.
  8. We are looking at adding a Fun Shoot for the month of November. Possibly Nov 4th. This is not confirmed yet, but keep the date as possible. This is in addition to a shotgun shoot on Nov 18th which is confirmed.
  9. We are looking at adding a Fun Shoot in December. No date set yet.
  10. We are cancelling the December Holiday/Business Luncheon. Covid 19 is the explanation.
  11. We will hold the yearly raffle in December. The possible raffle selection will be at the Board of Directors meeting.
  12. Tom Bivins has decided to relinquish being editor of the Creaker Website. When you see Tom, please extend thanks to Tom for setting this website up and continuing its maintenance over the years. Jim Cruse has volunteered to take over the website. When you see Jim, please thank Jim for his time he is donating to the club. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT ALL CREAKERS START USING THIS WEBSITE FOR ALL CLUB INFORMATION. Please wait a few weeks before contacting Jim Cruse for help on how to get into the website. Jim Cruse email is: crusevegas@yahoo.com
  13. Elections are upon us. Watch for an email from Sal explaining what is happening.

There is no way around the fact that this has been a bad year. I want to express my thanks to the members of this club for their positive outlook. We will make it through this year and looking forward to a great 2021. 

 Gary Hromada.

TO:                         Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club Membership
 
SUBJECT:             QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER
 
FROM:                  BRPC Executive Board
 
 
We are back open from the closures caused by the Covid 19 Virus.   All our members were notified by email or postal mailings of this reopening, which requires us to comply with the Governor’s mandates for social distancing and only allowing groups of specified sizes. We will attempt to keep hand sanitizer available (if we can keep getting it) but we do not supply masks, gloves or sanitize our facilities and equipment.  If you think you need further protections, we encourage you to bring these things with you for your use.
 
These notifications have brought to light several issues with our contact information for our members.  Many of your emails had changed, were spelled wrong in our database, had been redirected to spam folders or members had unsubscribed to receive them.  We have gone through these lists of issues and corrected as many as we can find.  However, we still require some form of contact with all or our members.  If you have changed your email address, please let us know by sending an email to brpclub@brpc1.org or dropping us a note in the mail to BRPC, P. O. Box 60534, Boulder City, NV 89006.  Some of you do not have emails and we use postal mailings to notify these members, so you need to keep your mailing address updated with us.  Our insurance requirements, for our members “shooting unsupervised”, require that our members have attended a range/safety orientation and are updated regularly of any changes.  If we cannot reach you by email, we must notify you by postal mail, but emails are a lot cheaper.
 
We are in the process of redoing our website.  Please have patience while we get the problems with our existing website corrected.  We know that the calendar and upcoming events sections of our website do not list all the activities that are scheduled or available at our range, but if you go  to the bottom of the calendar page you’ll see a blue highlighted link to print the 2020 Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club Calendar in .pdf format. This is the correct source for all our scheduled activities.  Please note that the social distancing guidelines are causing us to temporarily suspend our Juniors program until after the summer months, hopefully when these requirements will have relaxed even further.
 
We have recoated the roads going into the range and should last for several more years.  Improvements are also continuing on completing our fourth trap and skeet range.  We have had certain pits on our courtesy range re-graded to prevent flooding, and consequent closure after rainstorms, and have improved the total drainage on the range.
 
Please note that any time we have lightning in the area of the range, the following morning may see problems with the electric gates. We will attempt to get someone out there to reset the gates as soon as possible, so please notify us by phoning 888-564-0008 if you encounter this type of problem.  
 
We are currently working on building and equipping an enclosed shop for use by the different disciplines to use in building and maintaining any targets and other materials required for their particular disciplines, as well as general maintenance of the range facilities and equipment.  We are also planning on re-doing some of the foam sound-deadening material on the silhouette range cover, which will require closing this range while construction is ongoing. We will attempt to notify everyone when this project is expected to start, but you should know that these types of maintenance items are subject to the contractors scheduling.  Please be patient with these types of temporary closures as we attempt to make the facilities better for all our members.
 
Our new membership opening will be on the 1st of November.  Please use our website (www.brpc1.org) for any news on this subject.  
 

All nonmembers should be advised that they are still welcome to use our Courtesy Range on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from 0800 to 1600 for a cost of $10 for two hours of shooting.   Nonmembers are also invited to participate in any of our scheduled Monthly Events listed on the top of the printed 2020 Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club Calendar.  They may be asked to contribute a small donation to help with operations of these particular disciplines.
 
You are reminded that your Electronic Gate Access Card (white plastic card with a BRPC logo) is a permanent membership card and is renewed each year by paying the $75 renewal fee, which is due by Jan 1 of the upcoming year.   If you have not paid your renewal fee by Dec 31st, your card will not work the next day on Jan 1st.  We do not send new cards out and we do not issue gate combinations to members.  Members are now required to maintain their membership each year to stay on our membership rolls.  You have until the end of the current year to renew.   If we do not receive a renewal by the end of the current year, we will assume that your membership is cancelled and remove you from our database. Once removed, the only way to rejoin the club is to reapply under the new membership opening and attend another range/safety orientation.
 
We will be closing our offices for the summer and will not be accepting renewals during that period   Emails and phone calls will still be answered to correct any problems.  We are going to attempt to get these types of newsletters out to you on a quarterly basis, so look for the next one, sometime in September.  We consider each and every member of our club to be a part owner of our range and as such we hope you are encouraged with the improvements and maintenance of your range.  Please keep in mind that with 2500 members we will still have some complaints on operations or maintenance, but we endeavor to address and correct all of these that we can.
 
Thanks for being an owner of Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club.  Please try to keep the range maintained, or even a little better, for those who will use it after you.  Have a great summer.  Stay safe.
