    ALL CURRENT MEMBERS WILL BE RECEIVING THEIR INVOICE FOR 2023 DUES ON DECEMBER 1, 2022. BE SURE YOUR MEMBERSHIP RECORD IS UP TO DATE!

    Please log in to your account on the club's website BEFORE 12/1/2022 and check that we have your current, correct email and postal addresses, changes to emergency contact name, etc.

    If you performed club service in 2022 (range maintenance work party, volunteer helper for CMP  or Swiss Pistol shooting matches, Youth Program Instructor, Independence Day Parade assistance for City of Scotts Valley, special maintenance projects, membership committee, etc.,) BE SURE THAT YOUR CLUB SERVICE FOR 2022 IS RECORDED IN THE DATABASE. If your club service has not been recorded, contact the board member who sponsored the activity, or the club treasurer before the end of November to get it corrected.

    Effective January 1st we cannot put organic waste in our dumpster. This includes stuff like raked up redwood needles, branches, logs, weeds, grass clippings, and also food scraps. We will establish a compost pile for the needles, cones, brush, etc. that we collect.

    Food scraps should be bagged and taken home for disposal in your home garbage.

    The dumpster should be reserved for waste cardboard target backers, broken target stands, used targets, ammo boxes and plastic separators, soiled paper towels and hand/bench wipes, empty soap bottles or sprayers, steel or aluminum cartridge cases, shotgun shells, broken metal or plastic items/equipment, etc. 

    The alternative to these changes is for the club to spend $200/month to get an organic waste dumpster, and then police and sort what goes in each dumpster.

    It's your range...keep it clean AND don't cost us all a bunch of money in fines for careless disposal.

    This week the Pistol House handwashing station drain was clogged up with sand and would  not drain. Please be careful what you put down these drains. They are not designed to handle a lot of stuff that is not water and soap.

    Please remember that the handwashing stations are maintained by a club volunteer. Clogging up the drain with sand, paper towels or other debris makes his job a lot harder, as well as making the station non-functional for members who need to wash their hands after shooting. Our club depends upon volunteers for virtually all routine maintenance, and it's everyone's responsibility to help make their job easier.

    At the December 2021 board meeting, the Board of Directors decided to change how we charge new member applicants. Currently we do not charge any fees until the applicant completes the Range Safety Orientation, at which time they become probationary members and we charge a $100 initiation fee and pro-rated dues for the rest of the year (or for those completing the orientation in October, November or December we also charge dues for the following year at the same time.) 

    EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2022 WE WILL BE SPLITTING THE $100 INITIATION FEE IN TWO HALVES AND CHARGING $50 WHEN THE APPLICATION IS RECEIVED AND $50 WHEN THE RANGE SAFETY ORIENTATION IS COMPLETED. 

    This change is being made to reduce the number of applicants who submit an application, get part way through the process and walk away before completing a range safety orientation. At that point we have incurred the cost of a background check and the online SOP exam, plus the volunteer time of the club secretary and membership committee, all of which is wasted if the applicant decides not to continue through to at least probationary membership.

    Invoices for 2022 dues will be in your email in-boxes on December 1st, and payment is due January 1st. We really appreciate all of you who are paying online via Paypal or Credit Card...it greatly reduces the workload of the Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer during the holiday season.  We have a handful of members who do not have email, and as always, will be sending them paper invoices via the Postal Service.  (Please click the "Read More" button now.)

    NOW would be a good time to check your profile in our database and make sure your address, email address and other information is correct. Did you move this year? Did you get a new email address, or phone number? Do we have an emergency contact to notify if you trip and fall or something on the range?

    A group of Club members volunteer each year as an Audit Committee to review the Club's financial reports and records for the prior year. The review of the Club's 2020 financial reports and records is now complete. The Audit Committee's report covers a number of things beyond just finances, and is several pages long. Their summary conclusion regarding the 2020 financial reports and records was, "The Club’s financial records as reviewed by this Committee were found to be in order and consistent with deposits and expenditures. This was determined by doing random spot checks within the system for membership dues payment/processing and invoice payments/processing."

    Any member who is interested in the full report can contact me for a copy.

    I received the following message from Chuck Michel of Michel & Associates, PC, attorney for and head of the CRPA. 

    Jeffrey -- huge news: we just had a massive, unanimous victory at the Supreme Court in the constant fight for our Second Amendment rights.

    The non-profit Second Amendment Law Center has been active and playing a critical part of the case Caniglia v. Strom – which (now that we won!) reaffirms that it is generally illegal for law enforcement to enter your home and take your firearms without a warrant. While it might seem obvious, this case had to be fought -– and it had to be won –- because it sets national precedent across every state.

    Help us secure even MORE freedom-fighting wins at the Supreme Court!

    In states like California who constantly seek to destroy our Second Amendment rights with “red flag” and other bad laws, this case is a CRITICAL one that we had to fight. And with more and more legislators in state houses across the country who want to end your civil rights as we know it, we take these issues to the nation’s highest court to stop them in their tracks.

    Better yet, we have even more Second Amendment-affirming cases heading to the Supreme Court that we’re actively involved in, too – cases which will REDEFINE the Second Amendment as universal across EVERY STATE. But only if we have the opportunity to win.

    Can you help TODAY to support more cases the non-profit Second Amendment Law Center is fighting – and winning?

    With deep-pocketed opponents like Bloomberg, we rely on small-dollar donors who agree that this fight for the Second Amendment is worth it!

    Can you chip in anything today? Here's the secure contribution link

    Thanks,

    -Chuck Michel
    President, Second Amendment Law Center
