You must be over 18 to participate. Come one come all, bring your friends!!!

ATTENTION ALL INSTRUCTORS
All NRA instructors training in this club MUST volunteer in the club in some capacity. Instructors are required to sign up for specific volunteering. This is the only way people will be allowed to train at WSC. The most logical place to volunteer is the junior program, however, building maintenance, range maintenance/clean up (emptly lead etc.), grounds maintenance will be considered. Thanks for your cooperation. The board feels this is necessary to keep our club running smoothly.  Please contact Dick Striano 781 749 7271 (cell 781 264 2884) or email richardstriano@yahoo.com. Sign up sheets will be provided along with space for a board member to sign you off as completed

New Members
All new member applicants are required to attend an orientation meeting following a general meeting the first Tuesday of each month in order to obtain key card access to the club and the range. General meetings start at 8pm and usually last about 20 min. You must submit your membership application 2 weeks in advance of a meeting. We cannot guarantee you will get a card if you don’t do this. Mail in your application or stop by on a Wed. during the Junior program to drop off your application.

NEW Wi-Fi available at the club
The club is setting up a guest Wi-Fi connection for members to use while at the club. Please check the bullitin board for password when available.

The Junior Program
The Junior program will start Wednesday September 18th this year. The group meets every Wednesday night 6:30 to 8:00 p.m except during school vacations and snow days. Anyone interested in attending can just stop by on a Wednesday night.

Contact Joe Scolaro 781-706-4183 or Al McCarthy 781-925-2290 with any questions.

Junior Rifle Advanced Program
The Junior Rifle Advanced Program meets Friday Evenings from 6:45-8:15pm during the Fall and into the Spring except during school vacations and on snow days. To qualify for the program the students must take a basic rifle training class. This course teaches firearm safety and the fundamentals of competitive smallbore shooting.

The club has several very active Junior development programs with complete instructions for all juniors from 12-18 years of age (discuss with coach if younger). Juniors can train and become competitive in smallbore rifle.

Participants will be charged for the one time class material and $5.00 per session. This money will help cover the cost of ammunition. We will be trying to apply for a grant from the Friends of the NRA to help fund this program and by future items such as spotting scopes, mitts, rifles, shooting jackets, cleaning supplies and miscellanous.

WSC is committed to training young people in the safe and proper handling of firearms. Parents are welcome to take part in helping with this rewarding program and for those students who want to compete in matches we will be reaching out to other towns and invite them to have friendly matches.
For more info go here…, come to the club on Fridays between 6:45pm and 8:15pm, email instructor Denise Fisher or call her at 781-953-0580.

JOAD archery starts Tuesday September 10, beginning at 6:30pm and ending at 8pm. Every Tuesday except on the first Tuesday of each month, which is “Board Meeting” night…. Once a month at the end of the month there will be a “Pin Qualification” on the last Saturday, starting at 9am and end 12 noon. Tuesdays are considered “practice sessions” to prepare for the Saturday Pin Qualification.
Any questions please email David Griffith the program director with questions and to sign up. Come join the fun!

New guest and training rules posted
Guest procedures appear to be misunderstood. To clarify, only one guest with a member may occupy a range station at a time. Guests cannot shoot in a separate booth without member supervision. You cannot both shoot at the same time in two booths. We recommend that members allow guests to only shoot guns they can handle safely. It seems that 22s are a good choice for inexperienced shooters. Members are responsible for their guests and we have people monitoring the cameras.
