What's New:

  • Have you seen the new addition to the club house yet?  The construction crew is making very good progress getting the new break room, class room, and storage areas ready for use.  We're nearly done!  The new club house has a bathroom that is accessible from outside the building.  There is a combination lock on the door that accepts the same combination you use on the padlocks on the range gates.  We'll lpost a sign on the door when the combination lock has been activated.

  • We are replacing the two manual range gates with electric gates (similar to the main gate at the etrance).  These gates will have a key-pad to enter or leave the 500-meter or 200-meter ranges.  Just enter the same combination you entered into the old padlocks.

  • We will be improving the road from the the street all the way back to the South range gate.  We don't have a firm date yet for this work, but access to the club will be limited while that actual work is being performed.  We'll let you know more as soon as we find out. . .

Work Days:

Want to save $40 when you sign up for 2016?  Volunteer just 4 hours at one of our Work Days (usually the 4th Saturday of the month from March through September), from around 9:00am to 1:00pm.  Work begins at 9 and runs to 1PM.  Meet at the club house for work assignments.  Bring gloves, rakes, shovels, pruners, hammers, saws, and other types of tools.  July will be clean up and prep for the club picnic.  Work days are scheduled so members can help keep the club maintained.  Those who work get work credit towards next years’ dues.  You receive $10 per hour worked up to 4 hours.  If you can’t make it out to the scheduled work day, but still would like to help, please contact a board member as there are always other projects ongoing that could use your help.  Do you have a special talent or access to special materials?  Donating either will also give you work credit.

New Ranges, Sharing and Closings:

We're built even more 7-yard bays on the West side of the road, across from our six general purpose bunkers.  We are converting the 50/100-yard and special-purpose range to a 35-yard range due to potential safety issues.  While the special-purpose ranges will not be available for members on a daily basis, they will allow our members to continue to shoot in the regular bays even during scheduled events.  Some special events may still require that ranges, such as the 200-meter, be shared rather than closed.  Check the club calendar for ranges that may be closed, or shared before you come out to shoot.

Safety is or #1 priority at SKSC, and all of our members have taken our safety and orientation class.  If you see an unsafe condition on any of our ranges, call a cease-fire and work with the other members to correct the issue.  The continued operation of our club depends on all of us to cooperate!  If you cannot resolve an unsafe condition, please fill out our Range Incident Report and get it to one of our Board of Directors or e-mail it back to admin@sksc.org .  If the situation warrants, please call 911 and report the problem immediately.

CPL Classes at SKSC:

Terry Thompson hosts our Concealed Pistol Classes at SKSC.  Costs are $75 for members and $125 for non-members.  There is a $50 non-refundable deposit to sign up for a class.  These classes are usually held the 1st Saturday of the month and fill up very fast.  Contact Terry at 616-891-4118, 616-293-8245, or via email at ccwtraining@AOL.comNote, Terry is having a few health issue that is making it tough to plan classes for the next few weeks - stay tuned for more news. . .

Hunter Safety Classes at SKSC:

SKSC hosts the area's best DNR Hunter Safety Class.  For more information or to sign up, please call Jim Jamieson: 616-328-1942 or Lynn Siebers: 616-457-1723.  Jim and his loyal staff volunteer their time and efforts to bring this highly acclaimed safety class to the public, so thank them when you see them.  This is a great class for everyone over the age of 10 to learn about general firearms safety, even if you are not a hunter.  The class is free, but donations to cover course and training materials are gladly accepted.  Classes are held Wednesday 6:00pm - 9:00pm and Saturday 8:am - 4:00pm.  You MUST attend both the Wednesday and Saturday classes.  Bring a sack lunch on Saturday.
