Membership Meeting: 2nd Monday of the month, 8PM
We are entering the 2017 membership renewal season. This coincides with Thanksgiving, Christmas and hunting season. To say it is a busy time of year is an understatement. Keep in mind, we have only one membership secretary.
However, you as a member can help by following instructions. If everyone does this we will get through this membership renewal season with limited hiccups. Here are some things you can do that will really help.
- If you have a membership question first go to the Website [http://bvrpc.org]. There are many answers posted there.
- If you can’t find your answer on the Website then email your question to [firstname.lastname@example.org]. The use of email allows me to work through questions at 4 a.m. without having to return your call at that hour. In your email please include your contact information including, your name, phone number, email address and your current membership number. Nothing slows the process down or disappoints the questioner more than me not knowing who sent the email or the contact phone number they can be reached at. Please be specific about the reason for your email.
- We will not entertain any New Membership Applications from October 10, 2016 until February 2017. The reason for this is obvious: we need time to process the renewals.
- New Membership Applications require a current club member to sponsor or introduce the new member to the club. The sponsoring club member’s name and membership number MUST be included on the new member application. Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant.
- PLEASE write legibly when filling out your 2017 Membership renewal application. If I can’t read it, I will return it. You are only filling out one application we are processing hundreds. Also, make sure your checks are signed and dated properly.
- DO NOT attempt to renew your membership without the appropriate 2017 membership renewal form as obtained from the club. Do not to send 2017 membership renewals in until you receive your renewal notice.
- Your cancelled check is your proof of payment..
Our objective at the Beaver Valley Rifle and Pistol Club is to promote organized shooting sports among legal United States residents who reside in Beaver County and surrounding areas. We achieve this by providing range facilities for the safe use of rifles, shotguns and handguns for organized leagues and events, and also for those not involved in organized shooting activities.
Additionally, we provide training programs for new shooters and support local law enforcement by making our facilities available to them for training and qualification testing.
- Our facilities include a lighted Trap Range with two trap houses. The trap houses are used only during Trap League events, which include hosted league shoots and scheduled practice sessions. When not scheduled for organized shoots, the range is available to members with portable traps.
- The Combat Pistol League uses the 50-yard Combat Range. This league competes in police qualification type shooting at silhouette targets. The range is available for use by members when events are not scheduled. All targets must be positioned so that shots imact the back-stop.
- Pistol Bay 2 is a 50-yard range used primarily for competitive shooting by Club teams. It is also available for members who are pistol and smallbore rifle shooters. All targets must be positioned so that shots impact the back-stop.
- The Rifle Range is a 200-yard range with some facilities for shooting up to 300-yards. All types of legal firearms are permitted on this range, and it is available to members any time Rifle Team or law enforcement training are not scheduled. This range is open to the general public in November for the sighting in of deer rifles, but some shooting positions are reserved for Club members at that time.
- The Indoor Range is a heated, 10 position 50-ft range for pistol and smallbore rifle shooters. It is heavily scheduled for competition and training, especially in the winter, but is available to members when not scheduled.
- Pistol Bay 1 is a 50 yard range with stantions for Combat target frames at 25 and 50 yard distances. All firearms are permitted. All shooters must use the same firing line, and targets must be positioned so that shots impact the back-stop.
- The Training Range is not currently open to the public. Its use must be approved by the Pistol Executive. All firearms are permitted, to include NFA firearms.
- The H&R Range (Handguns and Rimfire) As the name implies, only handguns and rimfire are permitted
- The firing lines at the Combat, Bullseye, Multi-Use and Rifle Ranges have a concrete floor and are covered for shade and shelter during inclimate weather.
- For safety reasons, the Trap Range and the Combat Range cannot be used in conjunction with each other since there is no berm between them. A scheduled event on either range has first priority.
- On weekends, there is a use schedule as follows: Saturday- Trap range until 2PM, Combat Range from 2PM to close. Sunday- Combat Range until 2PM, Trap Range from 2PM to close
- Otherwise, use of these ranges is on a first come first served basis. When one range is being used, the other is closed.
