    The SCCS&FA is following all CDC imposed corona virus regulations.  Although our shooting ranges are open, members must follow all guidelines.  These include:

    Wearing of face masks unless you are the only person on the range.

    Social distancing of six feet or more between shooters. Use of every other shooting bench is suggested.

    NO GUESTS are permitted until further notice.

    The Facilities Committee is proud to announce that the Renovation Program for the shooting sheds is almost complete.  All five of the shooting sheds now have concrete floors, motion detector activated lighting, electrical outlets, wall fans and new shooting table coverings.  In addition, each shed now has a steel roof, new exterior coverings, interior wall panels and doors.  A "down range" safety light has been installed on each range.  The final project to install wheel chair accessible concrete entry ramps is out on bid. We expect the entire project to be done by July 1st.  Pictures of one of the new sheds:

    • Thanks to the contribution of volunteers and your cooperation the first batch of renewals were processed on Sept 18 for 1,142 members (68%)
    • The next batch is scheduled for processing in early October, however:
      • 42 members (2.5%) are currently eligible to be processed
      • 411 need to renew
      • 145 need to extend their NRA membership through 9/30/2020

    We're volunteers. Help us help you. Renew early online. Keep NRA good through the coming membership year. The third and final batch will be processed after the end of the renewal period - i.e. early January 2020.

    Sept 2 - 08:30 - We have had multiple reports of problems with credit card payment.We are in the process of working with the membership system software vendor to get this issue resolved. Check back here for updates.

    Sept 2 - 08:35 - One member reported success after trying again.

    Sept 2 - 08:52 - Apparently the software vendor does not start work until 09:30. We'll work with them once they roll in. As reported above, someone did successfully renew after receiving the error, so perhaps try again but please, no more emails (at least this morning) reporting the issue. We're getting flooded. 

    Sept 2 - 13:04 - This issue with credit card payments has been resolved. Please continue to renew online.
    FYI, it appears that there was a "throttle" on the number of payments the system would permit. We hit that limit and for "security" reasons further transactions were blocked by the system. We understand the limit has been raised permanently. If you do experience any further problems email membership to let us know but do please check here first for new updates just in case loads of people have already reported it. Thanks to the I.T. Committee for their work resolving this issue.

    SCCSFA recently rolled out its new customer service system called HappyFox to better assist requests from member and prospective members. All voicemails and emails are now routed to a central system where volunteers can easily respond to requests.

    In October 2017 Concrete pads were poured in all the range sheds to extend cover the entire enclosed space. Overall this will help make it much easier for members to pick up their brass (as is required) and gives the sheds a tidy appearance.

    In Early 2018 lighting and electrical outlets were also installed adding much needed electrical service and lighting to all of our  range sheds.




    The facilities committee hopes members enjoy this improvement. Feedback so far has been positive.

All current members except those without email address already on file (41 Members) must pay for renewals online with a credit card beginning with the 2017 renewal cycle (8/2017).  The 41 members who exist without email have been grandfathered and will continue to receive paper renewals.

    2. All new and current members except those without email address already on file (41 Members) members must complete an electronic liability waiver by 9/30/2017 as a condition of membership. Membership committee will be sending out liability waivers using DocuSign.  (Users with no email on file may complete the form online or via special paper form).
