Annual Meeting


The Annual Meeting will be held on July 14, 2018 at 1 pm at the Tactical Bays. The meeting will include a presentation of verbal reports and other official business including the election of three Board positions (Vice President, Secretary and At-Large). Please contact the Board via email ( if you are interested in running for one of these positions. The Bylaws allow for nominations at the meeting; however, it would be nice to know in advance so that we can have your name printed on the ballots, if needed. We have three members who have expressed interest thus far, as follows:


Vice President (3 year term) - Tom Petaja (Incumbent)

Secretary (1 year term) - Gregory "Bo" Marzolf (Currently At-Large)*

At-Large (3 year term) - Gary Caldwell (Incumbent)

* If selected, that opens up an At-Large position on the Board.

Food will be available for members starting at 12 pm. Please bring portable chairs and attend the range cleanup earlier that morning at 10 am (counts towards next year’s cleanup commitment). Also, we are looking for gun-related donations for the raffle so if you have something, please bring it with you to the Annual meeting and give it to a Board member. As part of the raffle, we will select one member to receive a Glock 19 Gen 5 (must have attended a range cleanup last year in order to be part of this raffle).









New Guest Policy

Bryon Fessler, NCRGC Treasurer & Interim Secretary


A Household membership is authorized to bring a total of twelve (12) guests per year with no more than two (2) guests per visit, per badged Regular or Associate member. Regular and Associate members must accompany their guests at all times while on Club property. If only one Regular or Associate member with a badge are present, then only two (2) guests can be brought at one time. If both the Regular and Associate members with badges are present, then four (4) guests can be brought at one time. The Regular or Associate member is responsible for ensuring that guest waivers are completed, range safety rules are followed, and guest badges are worn. Guest badges are non-transferable and good only for one day. Subsequent visits require a new waiver and badge. Failure to follow the guest policy constitutes a serious safety violation which may result in suspension or expulsion. The guest waiver kiosks are under construction so there are no guest waivers and badges at this time. Stay tuned for more information.

Hunters & Shooters: Help Prevent Wildfires

Bryon Fessler, NSSF Instructor (Information courtesy NSSF)


The target shooting and hunting community prides itself on being safe and responsible with firearms in all situations — from using them outdoors to storing them safely at home. Sometimes, however, unusual conditions such as extremely dry environments require an extra level of awareness and safety on the part of shooters. Wildfires have many possible causes and during dry and hot weather conditions shooters’ use of certain ammunition and targets could accidentally ignite a wildfire. Target shooters and hunters, as well as other outdoor enthusiasts, should consider the potential consequences of their activities in fire-prone environments.
