CR&GC News – February 11, 2018

CR&GC Members,

I just wanted to write a quick note to mention a couple reminders…

Riffle/Pistol Range Winter Access
Don’t forget that there is no official snow removal at the rifle/pistol range. While we do have some neighbors who occasionally volunteer their time and equipment to maintain the road to in the range, we do not have regular snow removal at the range. The range is open to members year around, but please be aware of the recent weather conditions and bring a vehicle, shovel, etc. to ensure that you can make it in and out of the range without getting stranded.

Last Chance to Renew Your Membership for 2018
Don’t forget that the club does not sell membership renewals except between Dec. 1 and Feb. 15. If you were a member in 2017, you MUST renew your membership by Feb. 15th in order to be a member in 2018. If you do not renew before Feb. 15th you will not be able to renew your membership until 2019.

– Shotgun: Randy Anderson reported that Jerry Austill had been opening the trap range on Wednesday nights just before it was shut down for the winter, but we’ve gone through several volunteers opening and running the trap range last year, who have got burned out when no shooters show up.

7) New Business
Randy Anderson introduced a motion by Jesse Smith to amend the club By Laws by replacing Article XI, Section 1, Subsection B, which had been removed by the Board of Directors on 5/24/16, with the following:
“B) Any changes to the by-laws shall:

1) take affect immediately
2) be noted in the by-laws posted on the club’s website, with the date amended
3) be included in the next update of the by-laws”

The motion was seconded and passed unanimously.

– Chronic Wasting Disease presentation by Montana Wildlife Federation (moved from Good and Welfare)
John Bradley from MWF gave a presentation on Chronic Wasting disease in Montana. He said it is affects white tail, mule deer, elk, moose. There is no cure, and is fatal to the animal. It has been in states surrounding Montana for 20 years but hasn’t been in Montana. Last year there the first positive test was found in Montana. It kills 25-40% of the animal population. MWF and FWP don’t want large populations of wildlife in small areas like game farms or feed grounds because it spreads the disease faster. No deer urine can be imported from states known to have CWD. MWF is encouraging testing of roadkill deer, and other monitoring efforts in various, particularly affected, areas of Montana. John encouraged people to contact himself or MWF to convey any concerns about how the MWF and FWP are responding to the infection, or with ideas of what else they could do.

WARNING: Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are now in place

The fire restrictions have been lifted due to recent precipitation.
Attention CR&GC Members,

Custer County has put Stage 1 Fire Restrictions in place on all public and private land in Custer County. At this time, the rifle/pistol range is still open for use, but require that shooters have a bucket of water, and a shovel with them, as well as remain on site for at least 20 minute after the last shot is fired.

If you look between the clubhouse and the shed to the west of the clubhouse, there is a large rock next to the driveway. Behind that rock is a water hydrant that can be used to fill your bucket. There is also hose next to the hydrant, but not enough to reach out onto the range. PLEASE bring your own bucket and shovel when you come out to shoot.

Please be sure we are all following these requirements, as we DO NOT want to have the range shut down by the Fire Marshal, as was the case about six years ago.

You can read more about the fire restrictions and watch for updates on the Custer County website here… http://www.custercountymt.com/
