    ^^^ Listen to this guy. He sits on the executive board of the club.

    For the sake of full disclosure, the club only accepts 50 applications per month. If you applied tomorrow, your application would be read before the January meeting - so please have patience.

    Once you mail in or drop off your application, you will receive notification via post card that your app was received.

    CFER - if you're the Chris F who shot yesterday, you won. If you're not that person, Chris F. still scored the highest and will be added to the Leo Dennen memorial plaque at the indoor range.

    The indoor ranges will be closed Monday, February 26 with an expected re-opening of March 1.

    During this time, the facility will be thoroughly cleaned.

    The outdoor range will not be impacted.

    Yesterday, the outdoor ranges were bulldozed clean.

    This is what they are supposed to look like - please keep them clean and encourage your fellow shooters to do the same.

    Deposit any broken / destroyed pallets next to the burn bin near the gate, please.

    Cash, check, or money orders are acceptable. Please make out to "TRPC" or "Taunton Rifle and Pistol Club".

    Either mail to 430 E. Britannia St, Taunton MA 02780, or drop it in the black mailbox in front of the club.

    There is a work party scheduled for Monday morning. We will replace several components of the East [main] range backstop.

    Many hands make light work - if you are available, please show up and help keep the club in good working order.

    The main indoor range will be closed Monday until early afternoon for maintenance.

    Hi all.

    Quick, informal notice.
    The TRPC 'lazy fat guys' steel plate shoots will resume on the third Sunday of June, the 17th.

    YES, this is Father's Day.

    Match rules will be posted at the shoot. Match rules will be posted by 9 AM tomorrow, when I edit this post to insert a link. Match rules will follow the previously posted rules - in brief, center fire pistols, 6 rounds in magazine to be revolver neutral, no hot reloads. $1 per entry. Call outs are welcome and encouraged.

    Are they still only applying the bylaws selectively or to the whole membership?
    Just wondering if the status quo has changed.

    Are they still kicking members out who joined, and were in good standing but never set foot on the premises?
    They have such a great way of doing things there!

    There is no club meeting this Sunday. You should be doing something more interesting.

    Regular club meeting will be on Sunday, September 9th.

    The first few hundred dues invoices and news letters are in the mail. You should reasonably expect to see your dues notice in the next ten business days.

    Dues are still not due until December 31. Included in the mailing is a notice of proposed bylaw changes to be voted on at the October meeting.

    As it is Thursday, indoor bowling pin match tonight in the West range, starting at 6 PM.
