As you can see, we have a new website! Our goals for the new website were to improve the experience of the members. We will accomplish this by allowing all members to pay their annual dues online by e-check, credit card or PayPal. For those members who are not NRA Life Members, you will be able to upload a picture of your membership card or from the NRA website. The return on investment will eventually pay for our website due to savings in stamps and envelopes. For those who want to continue to pay by mail, you can continue to do so. We will also have a live calendar so we all know what is taking place at the range in real time. For instance, if ranges #1 and #2 are closed due to flooding you will be able to see that from the calendar on the website. All competitive matches and classes will be posted on the website by date, time and ranges that will be in use. We want our members to know well in advance if a range is occupied or not so you can plan accordingly.
You may notice quite a bit of work being done at the club. We have improved some of the roads, added steel to some ranges, placed crushed concrete on the ranges at the top, removed several trees and repaired or replaced equipment that has aged or broken.
What is left to do? A lot! We are going to paint the covered areas as they are showing significant rust, build up the berms at the lower ranges and continue to repair our roads. If you see something that is need of repair please don’t hesitate to email us with your recommendations or concerns. This is your range.
Upcoming: ETRPC will host its first sanctioned pistol match. The International Defense Pistol Association (IDPA), will be hosting the Texas Guardians IDPA Championships 2020 on October 8, 9 and 10th. More than 130 pistol shooters will be at our range competing and demonstrating very high levels of competency and proficiency. Please come and check it out. Our local club at ETRPC is very active and you may be competing in 2021!
Lastly, we are very lucky to have a range of this magnitude in East Texas. You can search far and wide to find such a fantastic range with as much as we have to offer at our price and ease of access. We will continue to do all that we can to upgrade and maintain what we have. Thank you for being such great stewards of our range. Remember to clean up after yourselves and always follow the 4 rules of gun safety.
