It's your club - Take care of it

Don't be an abuser of very basic and commonsense membership privileges.

  • Harvested Game Butcher Area: Always cleanup before you leave. Do not steal! Never take anything out that you did not bring in. Always dispose your garbage in the appropriate outside trash bins south of the store, not the recycle bins. Ensure the cooler door is closed before you leave.
  • Shooting Areas: Always police your brass or shells before you leave. Properly dispose of any trash or  target debris you created on the shooting ranges.

Basic Rule - Always leave area cleaner than when you arrived.
