Even the Sunflowers at the Club are Volunteers.
A new California State Ammo Law took effect on July 1, 2019. A background check (DROS) is now required to buy ammunition that leaves club property. However, the check is not required for single boxes of shotgun ammo sold with a target token and fired at our traps.
Ammunition sold here that will leave the club property requires a Department of Justice (DOJ) background check. This is currently only being done from 10:00 to 12:00 Noon on Wednesdays and Sundays in the clubhouse. The easiest way to get it done is to bring your California Real ID card. There are other ways to clear the background check, but some preparation is recommended. Check with me at the club.
Since I've been President, I've repeatedly asked people to SLOW DOWN when driving into and around the club grounds. Since some members do not seem to take me seriously, in 30 days we will be installing speed bumps in order to facilitate the 5 mph rule. For those of you that have lower vehicles, you may want to park outside the club and walk in?
I would like to recognize all the hard work Jim Reese, Mike Hennagin and Rodney Wilkes have spent repairing and tuning up all the trap machines for all of us to enjoy. When you see these gentlemen around the club, please take a moment to thank them for their expertise and time spent for the benefit of all of us here at the club. These gentlemen are going above and beyond the 2 volunteer work days required with your membership. Consequently, Jim's golf game is suffering.
Most Improved Shooter, Jack, receives awarded a flat of shells.
Mike Dolcini back at shooting
Kudos to all our Wednesday and Sunday instructors. We have seen an increasing amount of new shooters taking interest in Trap Shooting, and we are glad to provide them with our staff's time and excellence.
Any "Non Member" who is discovered using "Member" tokens will be escorted off the club grounds and banned from having shooting privileges at the club in the future.
Our sincere and heartfelt appreciation to Deb and Jeff Acquistapace for their dedicated efforts, twice a week, bringing the fresh eggs we sell at the club. For every dozen eggs sold, 50 cents is donated to the Junior Shooting Team. This amounts to approximately $40 to $50 per month. Their GENEROSITY is vitally important to our kids proudly representing VOMTC.
