JANUARY SPECIAL – GREAT DEAL!!

The club is running a combination special in January. Get your pistol permit training at the club AND become a member of the Weymouth Sportsmen’s club for one low fee of $200. Call Dick Striano at 781-264-2884 or email richardstriano@yahoo.com.

Range Fans
Volunteer is needed to clean the range fans. It can be done from inside behind the archery range. This will cover all of your volunteering for 2012. Please contact Dave Francis 617-328-1645.

Heat and Lights
During the past month we have observed many lights being left on, including the entire archery range overnight. The other lights are the range booth lights, hallways and bathroom. We will be putting sensor light in the archery range in the near future. The same situation occurs with the thermostats. We do not want members to be cold in the club, however, if you turn the heat up please turn it down when you are leaving. When leaving the range please turn the heat and vents off, as well as the lights. This is everyone’s club, each and every one of us is responsible. Please treat the club as you do your home. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

Mandatory meeting for instructors who use the club for training
Meetings will be held on Wed. Jan 4th and on Wed. Jan. 11th at 8pm. Instructors must attend one of the meetings. If unable to attend either meeting you must contact Dick Striano to continue using the club for training. Several procedures are being changed and certain issues will be clarified.

A course for new pistol instructors will be offered late January. The NRA has new requirements that will require fewer, but larger classes that must be registered with them in advance. Contact Dick Striano for further info. 781 749 7271.

In House Membership Drive
Current members will have $10.00 deducted from their 2012-2013 dues for each new member they bring in. The same will apply to instructors for students they train and join the club. A further incentive will be $130.00 total dues for these new members. Put your name and “in house” in the upper right hand corner of their application. Applications are on the shelf of top of the blue lockers, in the back room.

Scituate Rod and Gun Club
In an effort to promote the sport of skeet, the Scituate Rod and Gun club, would like to invite all members of the WSC to come and shoot skeet at the SRGC at the member rate of $3.00 per round. Skeet is run on Sundays from 11am-6pm and on Wednesdays 5pm-9pm, under the lights. Turnout can be sparse on Wednesdays, during the winter months, so it is suggested that you call the club before coming down. (781)545-1510.

Mass certified pistol permits and FID classes
Discounted Mass certified pistol permits, FID classes, classes in women’s shooting, scout merit badges for rifle and archery, refuse to be a victim and Eddie Eagle are offered throughout the year at the Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club.
