Ripon, is open October-April. The 2 Outdoor Ranges, located at N9089 S.

following year. The outdoor
ranges have the same combination and are
reset the first of each year. Membership runs from Jan. 1-Dec. 31. We do
not prorate for later admissions.
Applications mailed/emailed out need

is a yearly membership.

**There is NO LONGER a discounted membership for the Outdoor Events.
- We offer FREE membership to active duty
personnel. The safety orientation is still a requirement, but
you will get a card with the combination to use for the year. A renewal
application is needed to continue yearly.
***Members may bring a guest one time, but you, the member, are
responsible for them. Any rules broken will result in your loss of
privilege. Please use wisely.
Both outdoor ranges will be closed during the gun deer hunting season
November 20th-28th. A second lock will be on the gates for your safety.
We will once again host an "open to all"
rifle/shotgun sight-in from 9am-3pm at the 200yd range on Koro Rd. on
November 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th. We appreciate any donations given. The
members assisting are volunteers. Targets and a couple of spotting
scopes are provided.
The 200yd Range on
Koro Rd is
Open to the Public
Friday and Saturday from 9-4pm. A mailbox is located by the trailer with
envelopes to place your fee in. Then place it in the mail slot in the
trailer door. Cost is $10 per
shooter. Children may shoot for free. Rules will be posted on
the trailer. Impact berms are in
place on the 200yd range for 25, 50, 100 and 200yd targets.
DO NOT SHOOT AT TARGETS UNLESS DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF A BERM. This means
on the ground, in front of a berm--not on top of it. Ricochets are still
happening at short range shooting if not directed into the impact berms.
Pre-registration is becoming very important
to limit face to face exposure. All active events require this as well
as social distancing. Some are requiring face masks. Again check the
club calendar and call the event directors to confirm so you are not out
a trip. Practiscore.com is the preferred pre-registration site.
It has been
brought to our attention from several neighbors that shooting is
occurring outside our posted rules. Weekday shooting is not allowed
before 8:00am. Weekend shooting may start after 8:30am. There will be NO
automatic weapons-fire unless approved by the club (must get approval
through attendance at a club meeting) and BMG's are now allowed on
weekends only. Violators will lose all
privileges and be considered trespassers and prosecuted if found on the
ranges again. The noise reflecting off the berms is disrupting enough,
we don't need additional reason for them to close us down!!
of interest in the near future as funds permit:
Cut down trees by the Koro
Rd entrance; installation of the Koro Rd & FF signs; installation of a
boardwalk between ranges through the marsh (for the IDPA State Match
especially); hauling of railroad ties from FF to Koro range for
placement of fencing for 50yd bay and parking area; placement of
sand/silt to dry up wet areas; repair of potholes in driveways of both
ranges; expansion of parking area at Koro range with crushed stone; and
rebuilding of the 600yd berm and target area at the FF range; a covered
pavilion in front of the 50yd range; leveling and fill for the covered
shooting station at the 200yd range, etc... DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS
APPRECIATED! Equipment is a major benefit to offer as well. Thanks to
those who do ;)
