Lake Cotting Dredging is completed and the lower ranges are now open per normal schedule
During the week of April 11-22, Lake Services will be demobilizing their equipment. At times, you will need to stop and wait for their tractor trailers loaded with barges and heavy equipment to pass.
During the week of April 18, we will be pulling up the concrete blast walls. This could take two days and during this time road traffic to all the lower ranges, including the Lea Valley Range will be halted. Call the Club or check the Webpage to see if the ranges are open.
The strong road shoulder is on the left side of the road when approaching Lake Cotting and on the right side of the road when going towards the Clubhouse. Vehicles that can pull off to the strong shoulder (their right) must do so to let the other vehicle pass.
Once the lead reclamation process is completed (we have recovered more than 150,000 pounds of lead shot in the first week of operations) and the shotgun fields regraded, we will repair all the roads and bring them up to their final condition.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this process and continue to be cautious when driving on the lower range roads.

April 10, 2016, the Bowling Pin Match begins again! Join us on the second Sunday of each month from April thru September 2016. We will again be shooting pistols at the Sieger range from 9am until Noon. The course is the same as last year. Shoot at six real bowling pins at 7 yards with a maximum of 10 shots. Then shoot at six bowling pin shaped steel plates at 15 yards with a maximum of 10 shots. It is $5 per round, with a round being the six real pins and the six steel pins. Sign up at the check in table for your shooting slot.
This is a fun shoot. We take your time on each round, plus a 3 second penalty for pins left standing or left on the table. The clock runs until you shoot all six pins down or you shoot your 10 rounds.
Lowest time for each category wins a free round at the next scheduled Bowling Pin Match.
Separate divisions for Men, Women and Junior's. Any non-magnum hand gun round can be used, semi-auto or revolver.
Lower Ranges Are Closed Through March - Lea Valley Range Opens for Weekday Use on April 4th
For the remainder of March 2016 – the lower ranges will be CLOSED during the weekdays. The lower ranges will be OPEN on the weekends.
Dredging operations continue to exert a toll on the road to the lower ranges and the “hair pin” turn at the Lake is too dangerous for both cars and 100,000 pound dump trucks to use at the same time.
Dredging operations will stop early on Friday and the roads will be cleaned and additional gravel put down at the curve by the Lake, so that weekend travel is safe.
Starting April 4th, the Lea Valley Range will be open for use – with no weekday restrictions. Cars must yield to the trucks or other cars by pulling over to the gravel shoulder on the Right side of the road when leaving the Lea Valley Range – do not play “chicken” with these trucks. The trucks and cars going up towards the Club House will yield to cars going to the Lea Valley Range.
We are approaching the end of dredging – just a few more weeks!
Preparations for lead-soil separation is starting on March 21, 2016. The equipment is here and is being set-up.
Watch the Website for updates on the status of both the Shotgun Fields and Lower Ranges…
Thank you for your understanding and patience and be cautious when driving on the roads during the weekend.
