Did You Know?

Last November Putnam County Gun Club applied for a grant from the NRA.  

Thanks to the NRA/Friends of NRA our club received $1500.00 grant along with an additional $1500.00 in safety and range equipment.  

The $1500.00 grant has already gone into improvements in berm work on several of the bays at our club.  It is extremely important that we maintain our berms in both height and thickness. The berms require constant upkeep and monitoring to maintain the safety of our facility.  

Along with the grant mentioned above, we were also awarded approximately $1500.00 in range equipment and safety items.  They include...

(6) Trauma Kits

(10) steel target stands

(12) Count of Shooting glasses

(600 pairs) of foam earplugs

NRA range safety officer vest

The above items were all requested to increase the safety of our club.  

All of the above items are only available to us thanks to those that support and make monetary donations to the NRA/Friends of NRA.  Without those that support them, they would not be able to help support clubs like ours!

Thank you!

Sincerely, PCGC Executive board

This Saturday (7/27) all ranges except the rifle range will be closed.  Also Friday 7/26 many of the ranges will be closed for setup for Saturday's match.  This event is the inaugural event to recognize the passing of our longtime PCGC friend, Gene Richmond.  Gene was a a longtime member of our club, and served the club in many role, including President and Match Director.  Gene founded the USPSA discipline at PCGC and served as Match Director and Chairman since conception.  Gene passed away unexpectedly last fall and we wanted to honor him with this event.  The proceeds of this event will be used to establish a scholarship in his honor.

**club picnic**

June 15

 Hello Everyone,
Saturday June 15th from 11-3 will be our club picnic. If you were a member last year and have already mailed your payment or would like to pay at the picnic, your new badge will be available to pick up there. If you would like to become a new member, we will be giving range orientations several times throughout the day. So you will be able to pay, receive your orientation, and get your temporary badge all on the same day.
We will be giving a t-shirt to the first 200 renewals or new memberships. There will also be tables to set-up for members to bring any guns and accessories they’d like to sell. And last but not least, there will be a Steel Challenge type competition set-up and everyone participating will be entered for a chance to win a cool prize. This is a fantastic event every year and I hope we have a great turnout. If you’ve ever thought of joining, please come out, meet us, and see our beautiful range.
Michael Thompson
PCGC President
