4/7/2014

Question and Answer Session regarding DNR partnership.  VOTING IS ON MONDAY NIGHT 5/5/2014.


1.       Who will ensure that the shooters are Hunter Safety certified if not grandfathered in?  There will be a Certified Range Safety Officer present.

2.       How will current club members ensure they are able to shoot during designated hours?  ˝ the capacity of the range would be designated to current members.  Partial funds received from this partnership would be used to expand the pistol and rifle ranges.

3.       Concern is we would see membership fall due to the fact they wouldn’t need to join to site-in.

4.       How many rifles could be sited at one time?  We are looking at charging $10 for first and $5 for every one after that.

5.       Prices are set by us, not the DNR.

6.       We would not be locked in, this could be a month by month contract.

7.       Would we need additional insurance if we formed this partnership?  Our Treasurer is checking on this.

8.       Is there a way to do improvements without letting the DNR in?  Yes, we could secure a loan and pay for improvements that way.

9.       There is concern this would put us on the DNR radar to come in and mandate changes. 

10.   Why doesn’t the DNR just advise shooters to come to the clubs to shoot?  We are actually listed as a club on the DNR website.

11.   Are the hours flexible?  Yes we would choose the hours.

12.   Did the DNR come to the club and ask for this?  Yes, they are looking at more public shooting options.

13.   Would we need to change the zoning?

14.   We would need to certify more Range Safety Officers.  It takes about 40/hrs to be trained.

15.   There was a concern brought up that it would hinder other shooters, such as the Boy Scouts who use the ranges.

16.   The opportunity to bring new shooters in thru this program is a good idea and could build memberships with the club.
