7. The Club provides target frames that have been shortened and are placed in the four steel target stand pipes located at the base of the berm in the center of the range.

When patterning your shotgun, please bring your own target frame.

Note: At Club approved matches, events, or training classes, you may see a deviation from the standard range rules. Please do not think that as a general member, you can mimic these actions as the Match Directors, Event Coordinator, or Instructor have taken additional safety precautions ensuring that the bullets die in the berm and the participants act in a safe manner whereby a Variance has been granted by the Board of Directors that is specific to that match, event or training class. At no time does this variance apply to the general membership or any other match or event.
