RANGE CLOSURES

UPDATE (March 7, 2022):

As indicated in December, the shooting ranges are temporarily closed. Discussions for the Spring improvements are well underway and the committee has solid plans for raising the berms, installing security cameras, creating “no blue sky” and the training of Range Safety Officers (RSO). The improvements on the ranges will not be started until the snow melts however, the security cameras are being ordered and will be installed shortly and the RSO training is being held on Saturday, March 12 from 8:00-5:00 at the clubhouse. We need more RSO’s as this will determine how often and long the ranges are open once the improvements are complete. The range improvements will be done in phases so as one range is complete it will be opened and will then be monitored by a Range Safety Officer. As indicated in the January and February General Meetings, the ranges will only be open and available when there is an RSO on site. The more RSO’s … the more open days/times. Please consider becoming a Range Safety Officer. If you are interested please contact Mike Honerlaw (262-617-4831/mhonerlaw0706@gmail.com). Additional RSO training can be done if needed. If you’d like to be part of the Range Improvement Committee, contact Chet Rhinehart (715-581-2305/crhineh@msn.com). We need bodies and equipment and minds. This is YOUR club…let’s do it together!

ORIGINAL POST:

Effective Friday, December 17, 2021, the Lincoln County Sports Club will be closing all gun ranges indefinitely. We have been made aware that a bullet has left the premises and was found by one of our local neighbors. This is not a situation the Club takes lightly and therefore, we are taking extreme action. We know that this will be an inconvenience for our members, but our number one concern is safety. 

In Spring, 2022, there are several improvements that are planned to enhance the gun ranges for safety as well as ease of use for our members. Until those modifications can be accomplished, the ranges will be closed.

The next General Membership Meeting is scheduled for January 27 at 7:00pm. We will be discussing this situation as well as the Spring projects. We welcome any and all members to join us for the discussion. We value your input and hope that some of you may want to join us in Spring to help with the modifications to our ranges.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact any of our Officers or Board Members (names/contact info can be found on the General Information tab of this website).

For anyone interested in the Concealed Carry courses (details on the post below), these will continue as they are monitored by a Licensed Range Safety Officer.
