    Seamus Murray has announced that he will step down from the Secretary's office effective 1/1/21. Since the Club has not yet found a replacement for Seamus, I have temporarily taken over management of the electronic gate keys for the range.

    If you have a problem with your gate key, please send an email to

    Gate key updates and additions will be implemented twice a month, except when Range Safety Orientations for new members are held.

    On December 1st we will be sending out  renewal notices and invoices for 2021 dues.  Please help us out by doing the following before Tuesday, 12/1/2020. 

    1.  If you are moving away or not going to renew your membership for 2021 for any reason, please email and let us know, so we don't send you an invoice.

Make sure your contact information is up to date, and if you are between 18 & 65 years old, not exempt for medical or other reasons, make sure we have recorded if you performed club service (work party or other) during 2020.

    UPDATE  Bob Cori has volunteered to help Carol sort through her husband's reloading equipment and supplies and act as a go-between for anyone who wants to purchase any of it.  You can contact Bob at

    My name is Carol Lee, wife of Jun Lee, who was one of the founding members of the club. He is now living at the Westwind Memory Care Facility in Santa Cruz confined to a wheel chair and with the early signs of dementia.

    I am in the process of getting rid of all his loading equipment and collection of books. If any member is interested in these items please give me a call. The loading equipment, primers, shells, etc are at give away prices.  I would like to donate all his books to the club to sell and raise money for the club.

    If this is of interest to you please contact me at 831 438-0685. or

    Once again our club has been designated an NRA Gold Medal Club for 2020. This is an annual award based upon meeting criteria for 100% NRA membership, publishing a club newsletter, operating an active youth program, membership in the NRA's state association (California Rifle & Pistol Association), and an active NRA recruiting program. Thanks to all the members who assisted in making our club a Gold Medal Club for 2020!

    Fellow Scotts Valley Sportsmen’s Club Members,

    On June 1st, 2020, our range reopens within the limitations of the Santa Cruz county COVID-19 order for outdoor recreation. Scotts Valley Sportsman’s Club’s number one priority is the safety of our members.

    To comply with county directives, the club is adopting the Single Action Shooters Society (SASS) “Best Practices for Safety” guidelines. SASS has over 100,00 members of all age groups and is the largest shooting organization in the United States and has established COVID-19 guidelines for shooting activities.

    County and city authorities have been updated. These guidelines expire July 31st, 2020 unless renewed or revised by the Club’s Board of Directors. Our club Range Safety Officers have been updated and will be able to address any questions that come up at the range.

    Please come back to our range to enjoy some recreational shooting:

    • Review the Guidelines.
    • Maintain Social distancing.
    • Respect the guest limitations: Immediate family members that you share a residence with.
    • Don’t forget to send the Club board comments and suggestions regarding your experiences in our new environment.

    Let’s get back to enjoying our sport.

    I’m looking forward to seeing you at the range.

    Construction work on the range is completed and the range is open. There are a few items that still need to be cleaned up and/or finished, but those will be handled by a member work party in the next few weeks. 

    The backstop berms for both ranges now have a "toe" of large redwood logs at the base. The purpose of these logs is to help keep the backstop material from gradually slumping out onto the range floor. These logs are sacrificial. That is, we expect that over time they will get shot up and have to be replaced. Don't deliberately shoot them, but we won't get all stressed out over a few errant shots hitting the logs.

    The middle wall dividing the pistol backstop is gone. No more getting yelled at for shooting the wall.

    The shooting range will be closed Sunday March 1st for a Work Party and March 2nd thru 6th for construction to rebuild and reconfigure the backstops and remove lead contaminated soil from the range. Do not come to the range unless you are already signed up to help.  We will have heavy equipment and large trucks working on both ranges, hard-hats and dust masks required.

    All members will receive their annual membership renewal notice on/about December 1st.  Annual dues have increased 425, to $125/year for Regular Adult and Senior Members to help cover the costs of environmental cleanup work and other range operating expenses. This is the first dues increase in at least 5 years.  

    Please check and update your membership profile this month to make sure your NRA expiration date and other information is correct.

    Many members have not listed an emergency contact on their profile. If you haven't listed an emergency contact, or it has changed, please update your  profile on the website. It's very important for us to have the emergency contact information...if you become ill or are injured on the range, we need to know who to contact.

    Today someone shot one of the red lights that we use to indicate a cease fire in the pistol house. It may have been an accident and we certainly hope it wasn't deliberate. It looks like it was a 22, based on the size of the hole in the shatterproof bulb.

    We expect whoever did this to fess up and pay for the bulb and a replacement fixture.  If you shot this safety light, send an email to and offer to pay for the damage.  Click on "Read More" to see pictures.
