Lee Sportsmen’s Association is pleased to announce the receipt of an equipment grant for a Promatic Pigeon trap machine to be used as additional support for our 5-Stand events.  The grant was received from the NRA Foundation based on the recommendation of the Massachusetts State Fund Committee.  The Promatic Pigeon has a 70 yard throwing capacity with a 10-30 degree adjustable elevation. 

This is the second year in a row that the NRA Foundation has been generous enough to gift LSA with support.  Last year, LSA received a two door gun safe and grant funds toward the purchase of a wobble trap and voice activation equipment for the new trap field.  Please check the calendar, LSA emails, and website for upcoming 5-Stand events.

 

The Membership Meeting for August will be held Wednesday, August 4th at 7:00pm and the next New Member Orientation will be held Saturday, August 7th at 11am, both meetings will be held at the Main Clubhouse. 

Interested New Members awaiting Range Orientation should email info@leesportsmen.com or contact Stephanie DuPont via call/text at (215) 668-7808, and you will be contacted shortly with further information.

Back by popular demand for 2021!  Ladies Night Fun Shoots begin at 6pm, with a safety briefing for all shooters at 5:45pm.  NEW or inexperienced female shooters welcome!  No gun/equipment, no problem!  We can provide safety equipment, firearms, and instruction.  Due to the national ammunition shortage, ammo cannot be provided; so, participants will need to supply their own ammunition (.22 long rifle, 9mm, or .380).  Focus is on shooting fundamentals and having safe fun.  Cost: $3 Members, $5 Non-members.  Cold Range Rules apply; gun handling only at Safety Table.  For those with their own equipment: 5 magazines are recommended.  Remaining 2021 Dates: August 17.  For more information on these events, required equipment, and costs please contact us by email at info@leesportsmen.com or call/text Joann Sullivan at (413) 281-8652.

NRA Range Safety Officer Training (RSO) – The minimum age to become a credentialed NRA RSO is 21, and you must provide a valid and current NRA membership number on the day of the course, or it will hold up submission of a training report until received.  After the instructor submits the training report, applicants will be able to complete the credentialing process online at nrainstructors.org.

The Cost of this course is $75 per person (please see note below), and the Cost of a 2-year credential for NRA members is $35 & $60 for non-NRA members.  If you are not already an NRA member and would like to become one prior to taking this course, it is recommended you call the NRA rather than join online.  If participants do not have a valid NRA number in time for this course, it will complicate the credentialing process.  NRA members will use their membership number to create an account to complete the credentialing process online at nrainstructors.org.  Non-members will receive an email with a number to use.  

The NRA server retains old membership information, so NRA Training does not send a non-member number to former members to use to establish an account on nrainstructors.org.  The system assumes the former member will use their former membership number, and most people don’t remember that number.  This has been an issue in the past, and you will have to contact someone at NRA Training or the instructor of the NRA RSO course so that the NRA can override the system in this case.

Registration is required – Please contact Robert McDermott by July 24th for questions, concerns, and registration at (413) 441-4582 or robmcdermott@verizon.net / Click here for the registration form: August 14, 2021 RSO Course Registration Form

The first 10 active LSA Members to register for this course and agree to actively participate as an RSO at the Club in some capacity (i.e., for any event/match held on LSA property where RSOs are needed, during youth training or events/matches or during a busy weekend on any of our ranges) will have the cost of the course covered by LSA (the member is only required to pay for the cost of credentialing through the nrainstructors.org website and will need to provide a copy of their credential certificate or card to the Club to keep on file).
