From time to time, the Executive approves non-club use of range facilities, particularly in support of our local police forces. The support provided is within our capacity as a recreational and sporting activity as long as it provides minimal interference with membership use, and does not conflict with our Club Range Regulations. Application for use of range facilities is made in writing to the Rental Chair and Chief Range Officer, an agreed daily or hourly charge is established, Executive approval is sought, and a lease agreement is then signed.
