We are also looking for club members to help at the Steel challenge event, earning their work credit. Most needed is volunteers to paint the targets between shooters. No experience required.

Range Safety:

Safety is our #1 priority at SKSC.  Each member has an obligation toward the safety of themselves and guests they bring with them as well as others around them.  We all watch each others' backs!  If an accident happens at our club, it needs to be reported to club leadership by filling out our Incident Report Form and send it to the club via e-mail to info@sksc.org or U.S. Mail.

P.O. Box 206
Dorr, MI 49323-0206

What's New:

  • SKSC has a new Range Use Policy as of 1-Jan-2016.  Please read it at the bottom of our Contacts page here.

  • The two manual range gates have been replaced with electric gates (similar to the main gate at the etrance).  These gates will have a key-pad to enter the 500-meter or 200-meter ranges.  Just enter the combination on your annual member card.  To leave the ranges, simply approach the gates slowly with your vehicle and the gate will open for 20 seconds.

  • We have improved the road from the the street all the way back to the South range gate.  This will really help keep down the dust as well as drain better.  Please respect the posted speed limit.

Work Days:

Want to save $40 when you renew?  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.   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 converted 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 info@sksc.org .  If the situation warrants, please call 911 and report the problem immediately.
