Member Orientation for New Firing Line

Dear Member,

Just a reminder:  The range will be closed and the gate combination will be changed on September 2. This combination will be given only to those members who are working at the range. Shooting will not be allowed until construction projects are completed. This includes normally scheduled events such as competitions.

Due to the changes in the range design and procedures, each member will be required to complete an Orientation before he/she can use the new facility.  The Orientation Schedule is listed below.  The schedule has been divided up alphabetically according to your last name.


A through B Saturday, September 13 at 9:00 AM
C through F Saturday, September 13 at 12 Noon
G through J Saturday, September 13 at 3:00 PM
K through N Saturday, September 13 at 6:00 PM
O through S Sunday, September 14 at 10:00 AM
T through Z Sunday, September 14 at 3:00 PM






We ask that you make every effort to attend your scheduled Orientation – remember we have over 400 members who need to go through the Orientation process before we can re-open the range.  Please do not come for Orientation at a time other than the one for which you are scheduled unless you have made prior arrangements – there is a limit to the number of people we can accommodate in each group.

We realize that there will be some scheduling conflicts (people who work shift-work or weekends, etc.).  If you have such a conflict, please contact me at 912-778-4577 between 10 AM and 7 PM, or email me at and I will work with you to re-schedule.  We have a limited number of alternative dates and times available. If the alternative dates/times don’t work for you, you will be asked to make arrangements to attend one of the normal new-member orientations on a workday (beginning with the October workday).

Once you complete the Orientation process, a temporary ID card will be issued. You will be allowed access to the range using the temporary gate combination (on the back of this card) once all the necessary projects have been completed and the range is re-opened.  This combination will remain in effect through the dues-renewal period. Members who have not completed the Orientation procedure will not receive their final ID card with the permanent gate combination, even if they have renewed their dues.
