    The recent rains had threatened to create a washout at a vulnerable spot on the vehicle access road to the range. Many thanks to the members who showed up today to help repair the road, shore it up to prevent another washout and redirect drainage water from the other side of the road to one of our drain pipes instead of flowing across the road to a low spot.  Here's a picture of the patched area.

    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 facilities@scottsvalleysportsmen.com and offer to pay for the damage.  Click on "Read More" to see pictures.

    The broken hand washing station in the pistol house has been replaced by a new unit.  Be sure to wash you hands after shooting to remove any lead residue before eating or smoking!

    Last night the Club held it's first new Youth Training Program class in the pistol house, with 10 scouts, several parents and Club NRA Certified Instructors. Everyone had a good time and the young folks learned a lot about firearms safety and marksmanship. 

    Huge thanks to Charlie Baum for organizing this and all the others who have volunteered to be Instructors, Robert Cobez for training and certifying the Instructors, and the Club's Board of Directors for funding the program.

    After some delays getting the old Porta-Potty from D&G Sanitation removed from the premises, we now have the new one from Ace Portables in Watsonville installed and ready for use. It's the same kind, but a bit newer and cleaner. We expect the service to be much better.  Clean-outs are scheduled to occur every Thursday, and they will also clean out and service the older, green potty that belongs to the club.

    If you have an Apple IPhone, you can download an application that will display some selected information from our website, including the events calendar. It will give you the ability to sign up or make changes to your registration for events. You will not have as much capability as the full web site, but it may be of use to some of you. 

    You can download this from the Apple App Store. Look for the Wild Apricot App for MEMBERS. 

    Note that while the app has the capability to display a directory of members, the club has chosen not to enable that feature for privacy reasons. If you see a selection on the screen for a members directory, it will be turned off.
     
    Unfortunately, I do not have an iPhone and have not had an opportunity to download and try this App myself...so I can't help you if you need some assistance. Perhaps some adventurous member who is reasonably computer savvy will download it, figure out how to set it up and send me an email to treasurer@scottsvalleysportsmen.com. 

    Wild Apricot is working on an Android version of this app, but the timetable for delivery has not been announced.

    At the February 2018 Board Of Directors Meeting, a decision was made to increase the initiation fee from $40 to $75, and to pro-rate the annual dues collected at initiation based on the month of initiation. A schedule of fees was established as follows:
    Orientation Month  Initiation Fee Dues Collected 
     January  $75  $100
     February  $75  $  95
     March  $75  $  85
     April  $75  $  75
     May  $75  $  65
     June  $75  $  55
     July  $75  $  50
     August  $75  $  45
     September  $75  $  35
     October  $75  $135 (includes following year dues)
     November  $75  $135 (includes following year dues)
     December  $75  $135 (includes following year dues)
    The initiation fee was raised to better reflect the time and effort expended by club officers in organizing the entire onboarding process for new members including interviews, range safety orientation classes, creating new member credentials and tracking meeting / club service attendance by probationary members. This fee goes to the club treasury, but we believe it should reflect the value of the time volunteered to manage the process. 

    The dues pro-rating is intended to be fairer to those members who join late in the year instead of charging a whole year of dues for members who join mid-year. Members who attend their Range Safety Orientation in October, November or December are also charged for the following year dues and will not have to renew their membership almost immediately after joining.

    Some of you may notice that when you login to the SVSC website now, the first letters your browser displays in the address bar are "https", whereas before this week the browser displayed "http", without the "s" at the end. This is because the club has obtained a Trusted SSL Certificate to increase your security and privacy. Now, all communications between your browser and our website are encrypted to protect your identity and any information you enter or pull down from the website. There is nothing you have to do to activate this encryption...it's automatic. It also didn't cost the club anything...FREE is always good! Thanks to David Katinsky for taking the initiative to obtain and implement the certificate, and thanks also to member Chris Culligan for poking at David to get it done.  :-)

    The club has received a letter from the NRA Deputy Executive Director, Joe DeBergalis, Jr., recognizing our club for being a 100% NRA Club.  See the document by clicking the link. 100 Percent Club Recognition Letter.pdf

    There is a large concrete pipe sticking out of the ground above and to the left of the impact area on the rifle range.  This pipe is an important part of our drainage system. If it breaks because people shoot at it, the club will have an expensive and difficult repair job. If we know who shoots a hole in it, we will charge them for the replacement. Also, shots that hit the pipe ricochet unpredictably and could injure someone off the range, or cause a fire in the surrounding woods.  



    Recent hits on the pipe are the silvery/bluish ones that haven't oxidized or become covered with range dust.
