RSO Classroom Material - Note that this is a large file!
Range Gate may now be OPEN during practice
From Mike Phillips to RSO's:
Thanks to our first group of RSO’s that have completed the second part of training. Below are a few reminders relative to Club Practice day duties, some of which were covered on the second day and some that weren’t:
1. One thing that wasn’t covered on Saturday is the need to complete the Range Log. This is in the binder you were shown that contains the Safety & Operating plan, emergency phone #’s, etc. It’s very simple, just requiring essentially an entry for the time you open and close the range, etc. Please be sure to complete this. If the RO closing the range is different than the RO that opened the range, the departing RSO should complete it before you close and lock the range up and turn in the range keys. The Range Log is a Forest Service requirement
2. I will leave a “range wagon” in the connex for your use. This is for your convenience in transporting extra targets and other light materials around the range that you don’t want to carry.
3. There should be a staple gun and extra staples on the table inside the connex or inside the range wagon. We will get more staple guns as we progress
4. After opening the range gate, please close it behind you (unlocked). We will be posting a reminder for members to please close the gate behind them when entering or leaving the range as well. This is a requirement while the USFS cattle lease is in force (which is not year around). When the lease is not in effect we will let you know. Thanks.
5. We will try to get the table at the rifle range unchained before the first Club Practice day. I will try and get the other similar table from the pistol bay over to the rifle bay as well in order to have an additional table. With this added and with the tables unchained and separated a bit, you should be able to accommodate 7-9 shooters comfortably at a time. If it turns out we need more space we can also add portable tables too.
6. The porta john (at the rear of the connex) should be locked when the range is not open, you will need to remove the lock at the start of the day and relock it before leaving. The key to this will either be on the “table” that is attached to the connex door or on the small table inside the connex. Please be sure and return it so the next RSO will have access to it. Thank you.
7. The details of how the connex key will be made available are yet to be finalized. Keep an eye on the RSO page for upcoming information.
1. Bring the flags in prior to departing the range for the day.
2. Be sure and lock up the Connex.
RSO Update - 10/14/10
1. The connex key will now be available for checkout with the range key at Williams PD for WSC Range Safety Officers only.
2. There is now a drop box installed inside the connex next to the flip down desk attached to the connex door. This should be used for all membership fees (please fold the application form around any cash), target donations and suggestions by either yourselves or our members..
3. We expect to have a notice posted in the Williams News informing the community of the dates and times of Club Practice days. The notices should also remind range users to close the gate behind them as they enter or leave the range.
4. A hook has been attached above the drop box for the key to the porta-john.
5. We anticipate either getting the range gate repaired or replaced in the very near future so stay tuned!
6. The chain holding two of the range tables at the rifle range together has been removed. This will allow you to separate the tables a little more for some more room between shooters..
