It's cold and it's wet... No one wants to trudge through the cold or mud, but please remember:

16. Driving on the range is not permitted unless approved by the Rangemaster for maintenance purposes or events.

You will be liable for damages to the range.


Installation of electricity and an automatic gate are still in the works. It is taking a lot of leg work to get the right people for the right price. As well as making sure we get a gate that is reliable.


It's been a long awaited announcement, but we are finally excited to release this news. At the EC meeting in January, we heard quotes and information regarding hiring contractors to start on the long range at CCGCI and a vote was made to select a contractor.

The plan at this time for this year is to spend $50,000 to get ourselves out to a 400 yard distance and as much additional digging toward the final goal as that allows. That number is for the digging only, we'll be putting down some grass and making sure we can get access to the berm for placing targets as well as putting up a target frame and perhaps some steel as well there. As the 400 yard distance will be on part of the hill that needs to be lowered to reach 1,000, no permanent type or structure will be built there as it would have to be torn down as soon as the next round of work started and that location is dug toward the eventual point needed. From our data, once we can see the berm at 600, we will also be good to 1,000 as well.

Once the range is completed and we are able to finish them up, a series of rules will be finalized for access to and use of the long range.

Eventually access to the long range will be through a separate gate with a different combination as there will be a berm running the entire left side of it to separate it from the other bays.

Work will be beginning soon, so there will be the sound of heavy equipment out at the range. Work is expected to take three weeks or so dependent upon the weather.

We your 2017 Executive Committee thank you very much for your patience as we worked hard to start bringing the long range to life. We look forward to seeing this portion complete.
