What's happening @ your club?

We must all take an active role in preserving our 2nd amendment rights.  While memberships in the NRA and Scope are very imporatnt, we also need to be contacting our politicians.  Letters, emails, phone calls go a long way in letting our politicians know how we feel.  Please take the initiative to locate and contact your politicians.  Please see the list at the end of the newsletter that may be of assistance.


Please look forward to the fall pistol schedule that will be published in the September Newsletter.  Last year there was a decline in participation for many reasons including availability of ammunition, etc.  Members, please consider shooting the league and encouraging friends and even non-members to participate.  If we don't have enough participation it doesn't make sense for the volunteers that run the program as well as the cost of lights and heat.  It is a lot of fun, good practice and really the only competition is against yourself.

Trap League

Doubles are into the 5th week with just 1 more week to go with a small pizza party on July 23rd. There have been only 9 participating shooters. Interest has obviously waned in the doubles trap discipline. After the doubles end, we will be open on Thursdays only for open shooting until our Fall Trap League commences on Sunday, August16th when we will be open Sundays; 9:00 am - 12:00 noon & Thursdays 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Hope to see some new shooters & members come out to try their abilities at trap shooting. THANKS; The trap chairman

Suburban Pistol

Last season BVCS had another success. Look for the new schedule to be posted in the September Newsletter. We should be starting again at the end of September. New shooters are always welcome and encouraged. It is a handicap league and the more shooters the better chances we have.

Open Pistol Shooting

Tuesday nights; doors open @ 7pm. Members’ range fee is $3 and nonmembers’ fee is $7 per night. All are welcome but we encourage frequent non-members to become members and support the club. Please be aware that non-members must fill out a one-time waiver. Forms are on hand at the range. Thanks to Joe Novoa for being there every Tuesday night.
