In spite of the threat of COVID-19 WSC has remained opened to our members. The Club had a limited but successful series of events for 2020. Our Trap events will continue through out the fall and winter weather permitting. Please check the Clubs calendar for days and times of the Trap shoots. We thank the membership for your cooperation with the Clubs Mask Policy and remind ALL that it will remain in effect until further notices: Everyone must wear a mask/covering that fits over the bridge of the noise and covers both nose and mouth when there is more than one person present regardless of your distance from other individuals or your relationship to anyone present. Mask may be lowered only when at the firing line facing down range and must be put back before moving away from the firing line. This mandate will be strictly enforced. In addition, members must practice “Safe Distancing” of 6 feet, use hand sanitizers and wipes when possible.
With the anticipation of a vaccine and some return to normalcy the Officers and Directors of the WSC have started planning for events and activities starting mid too late spring of 2021. Along with regular shooting events we plan on holding some special shooting as well as NRA certified training classes for beginners and advanced shooters. Please continue to watch the website and calendar for more information and dates.
The C.R.A.S.E. (active shooter) seminar that had been scheduled and rescheduled in 2020 will be held on October 2, 2021. More information will be coming.
Note: Members may sponsor One-day members and One-day Junior members to the Club and events. Members must be with the One-day members at all times and are held responsible for them.
Thank You, Stay Well
