Special Training Days

posted Aug 1, 2020, 7:25 AM by William Tocci

Occasionally, the Williams Shooting Range is scheduled for special training days by various groups.  This includes Law Enforcement, youth groups and by special request from qualified training instructors.   These days will sometimes fall on a day WSC is normally open to its members but they are all posted on the Calendar page so our members don't show up to interrupt the classes.

We are also posting the closures on the Home page and on our FaceBook page so no one gets turned away.

Call for Range Safety Officers

posted Jul 9, 2020, 11:13 AM by William Tocci

The WSC Board is asking the members for Range Safety Officers.  This is a volunteer position and after the training period and passing a written test, the only commitment would be serving as a RSO for up to 4 hours a month.

If interested, please contact Matthew Fleece (CRSO) or Keith Heimes, President, at Williams.SportsmansClub@gmail.com.

Winter Hours and Weather

posted Jan 28, 2020, 6:24 AM by William Tocci   [ updated Mar 13, 2020, 8:47 AM ]

Our winter hours, open from 1000-1400 on range days, have been in effect since December 2019.  Unfortunately, the weather has significantly affected the number of days the range has been able to be opened.  We've had a foot of snow on most parts of the range including the access road and in the shooting stations both covered and pistol bays.

The City plowed the road and Keith Heimes, Club President, used his tractor to open up the parking area and a portion of the covered line for use.  With reasonable weather, we've had a number of members who have been able to use the range. 

We will be available for all the open days we can be but, we are weather dependent at this time of year.  Watch the website and our FaceBook page for range status.
