Welcome to the Mohave Sportsman Club

September 12, 2016

Ranger Officer David  Eschelbacher has resigned and moved to Havasu.  We all thank David for his service to the Club.  Dan Leininger has returned to work. He is again living at the Range.

September 2, 2016

The steel roof has been completed on Bay 8.   As you may recall, high winds in May ruined the rolled roofing.  The county corrections department removed the old roofing, club members then replaced the rotten wood and placed 150 feet of 18' 6" steel sheets.  A big thanks to Marshall Gilliam, David Coburn, Richard Sprouse, Mike Thompson, George Yurish and Ron Hooper for their efforts.  These folks saved the Club several hundred dollars that would have been paid to hire the job done. 

The latest club raffle will begin this Sunday September 4, 2016.  It is a two gun raffle for a full size Kimber 1911 or an STI 1911 in 9mm Luger.  The winner will be able to choose which of these fine firearms they prefer.  There are 100 tickets at $20 each.  The raffle will continue until the tickets are sold.  The club obtained both firearms at this spring's Friends of the NRA event.  The club had purchased a $1,911 table which came with the Kimber and a number of raffle tickets.  We won the STI on one of the tickets.

September 1, 2016

We are looking for folks that have skills and are willing to help with projects at the range.  Please contact the range office if you have skills in electrical, carpentry, welding, computer etc., you would be willing to share.  We will make a list of people we can contact as projects occur.

August 22, 2016

MSC and Bank Street Guns has entered into a membership agreement.  Banks Street will be selling memberships to their indoor range which will also include membership to Mohave Sportsman Club.  These memberships will be good for one year from the date of the sale.  Bank Street will be issuing plastic credit card-sized cards with an MSC membership  number.  They will be running a special for approximately 3 months for a cost of $99.  We and Bank Street encourage you to take advantage of this great deal.

We are always looking for volunteers to help.  There is much work to be done.  You can provide your help by contacting any range officer and making arrangements.  We need volunteer help to keep operation costs at the range low.  Our only other option is to raise membership and shooting fees to keep everything maintained.

August 16, 2016

 David Coburn, Gary Bruno and Mike Thompson have placed a heavy duty stand for the steel swinging targets on Bay 8 and 9.  They will be placing similar stands on Bay 10.  These stands will be much more resistant to bullet damage than their predecessors.

August 15, 2016

The elections are just around the corner.  Individuals interested in running need to attend the October 13, 2016 Board Meeting to make their intentions know.  At that time, you will be required to provide a short narrative stating (in no more than 150 words) why you would like to run.  The election committee will determine if you are a member in good standing and have attended the required number of meetings.  The Club will then develop a ballot which includes all candidates and their statements of intent.  Elections will occur at the November meeting.

August 12, 2016

As of 7-31-2016, the club had a cash balance of $25,036.22.  Income for the month was $4,744.50.  Major sources were membership dues at $2,395, CTC at $930, non-member fees $720 and raffle sales at $235.  Expenses were $6,657.  Major expenses were wages $3,516,range upkeep $668, utilities $495 and telephone at $342.

Work was started on Bay 8 with removal of the old rolled roofing.  This was accomplished by the corrections department.  This past Tuesday, Marshall Gilliam and Ron Hooper began replacement of the rotten wood on the roof.  There is a fair amount of wood that will be replaced in preparation for the new steel roof.  Thanks to Marshall  for his help on this effort.  The replacement should be complete this next week as materials for the roof will be delivered this Tuesday, the 16th.  It will be put in place as soon as repairs are made.  

Range Officers George and Richard are going to put a rubberized roof coating on Bays 9 & 10. This will help prevent the major damage that occurred on Bay 8 from the high winds. 

We have repaired plumbing in the handicap bathroom, removed the leaking water heater in the range office, painted Bay 7, repaired the fridge in the club house and replaced the failed air conditioner in the range office.  

  The drawing for the Heritage .22 single action revolver was held.  John Steele drew George Yurish's name.  Congratulations George!

August 11, 2016

Home Depot generously donated building materials to the Club for the construction of Cowboy Range shade structures over the unloading tables.  Cowboy shooters Rooster, Carl Norman, Mike Thompson, Ron Hooper and Rad Green built and installed two structures this past week.  Range Officer David  painted the structures as well.  A big thanks to all involved for making these improvements.

August 4, 2016

It is time for members to review the bylaws and submit proposed changes or additions.  They can be found on this web page in the documents section to the left. These are due by September 1, 2016.  They can be sent to the Club email, turned in at the Range Office, or brought to the Board meeting on August 11, 2015.  Doc Orbloom is this year's Bylaw Chairman.  Rad Green has agreed to help Doc and of course you can submit your proposed changes to either fellow.

Bylaw changes will be reviewed by Doc and Rad, submitted to the Board by October 1, 2016.  They will be reviewed by the Board at the October meeting for approval or rejection.  Approved bylaw will be submitted to the membership with the election ballots.  Bylaws approved by a majority of member will become effective January 1, 2017.

July 5, 2016

The Club had on hand $34,216.35 at the last reporting period of May 31, 2016.  We have had a total income for the first five months of the year of $56,878.40 with total costs of  $43,556,64.  Membership dues and non-member fees provided 37.3%, CTC provided 18.5% and the Antelope Eaters event totaled 20.5% of income.  The remainder of income was derived from different shoots, raffles and rentals.  The majority of costs for the month and year to date are personnel and  range supplies and upkeep.  

  Dave Vance and other volunteers have installed the Pat Trap at the Clay Target Center approved at the May meeting.  At the June Meeting, the Board approved a motion to develop an agreement with Bank Street Guns to allow them to sell an annual membership to the Mohave Sportsman Club as part of their yearly membership.  More information on this as the agreement is finalized.  The Board also agreed to appoint Bill McCune as Vice President.  This was necesary as Shane Vernon resigned upon reassignment to Arkansas with his work.  The Board approved a proposal to investigate hosting a new shoot at the range called Precision Rifle.  This event would take place on the 1000 yard and 500 meter ranges.  It entails shooting at small steel targets as part of a stage similar to USPSA events. 

June 3, 2016

Remember 7-Mile Hill Range is all outdoors and consequently the range can be closed due to bad weather conditions.  These include rain/snow, high winds or excessive heat.  

June 2, 2016

Remember each person entering the Range must stop at the Range Office to sign in.  Please observe the Stop signs-don't drive past them.  This even includes Life Members.

The Club had a balance of $34,186.36 on April 30, 2016.  We are looking to spend some of this money to make improvements on the Range.  Our first efforts will be in placing shade at the Archery and Cowboy Ranges

May 14, 2016

The Club is collecting money to pay for the 2017 Antelope Eaters Hunt for a disabled veteran.  Including entrance fees, food and lodging.  The collection began at the 2016 hunt when an individual donated his $50 bill from the raffle.  Since then, Ken Coombs has donated $50, the Top Guns Scholastic Clay Target shooters have donated $50 and the Club's Board voted to donate $100 for a total of $250 to date.  In addition, there will be a jar placed in the Range Office where you can make donations towards the hunt as well as other events that will benefit our veterans.
