Welcome to the Mohave Sportsman Club

July 12, 2016

This Thursday evening, the 14th, will be the next General and Board Meeting.  These are held in the Club house at the range beginning at 6 pm.  The General Meeting is the time any member can bring forward their ideas and concerns to the Board.  Issues needing addressing by the Board will be discussed in the Board Meeting if there is time or tabled to the next meeting.  The Board meeting is set to conduct the offical business of the club.  We discuss current budget numbers, have a report from the Chief Range Officer, and make decisions on any range of items.  This month we are going to discuss a member suggestion from June to purchase a golf cart for the range, possible allowance of commercial signs to be placed at the range for a fee, and purchase of shade structures.  Let me encourage your attendance to express your opinion on these matters.

July 11, 2016

The next Mohave SportsWomen will meet at the Range July 16 on  Bay 9 at 9 am.   This month's topic is firearm selection.  Plans are to cover selection of bows, shotguns, rifles and handguns for various uses.  Included will be a description of calibers, draw weight, and what is recommended for hunting game - both large and small.

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. 

The next General and Board meetings will occur on July 14, 2016 beginning at 6:00pm.  All members are welcome and are encouraged to attend.

Notice:  A rolloff dumpster will be place at Bay 8 today.  The Club is in the process of replacing the roof damaged by recent high winds.

June 29, 2016 

The Club has another firearm raffle going.  It is for a Heritage Single Action with NRA marked faux Ivory grips.  It comes with both 22LR and 22 magnum cyclinders.  Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20.

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.

May 31, 2016

Kerry Schanaman was presented the Friends of the NRA Award at the recent banquet.  It was in recognition of his outstanding work in support of the FNRA and the Second Amendment.  Kerry received a rousing extended standing ovation upon presentation.  As President of the Club,  I have had the chance to work with Kerry on a number of projects.  I am very proud to know him and his fine family and extend my congratulations to him as well.

May 27, 2016

The Board approved a number of important items at the May meeting.  We voted $8,000 to purchase a new Trap machine for trap 5 and to sell the existing machine instead of spending $4,500 for a rebuild.  Also, Terry Kirkum was nominated and approved for the position of Government Liason.  Kerry Schanaman resigned the Secretary job because of health reasons.  The Board approved motions to raise the salary of George Yurish and Mike Thompson effective June 1, 2016 in recognition of their outstanding efforts.

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.
