Club News/Announcements

ALL RIFLE PISTOL RANGES WILL BE CLOSED WEDNESDAY 17 JANUARY THROUGH FRIDAY 19 JANUARY 2018

 

Update: Saturday 13 Jan, 2018

 

Our apologies for the late notice, but ALL RIFLE AND PISTOL RANGES WILL BE CLOSED Wednesday through Friday of this week. We have a very rare opportunity to get approximately 500 dump truck loads of dirt for the upcoming berm renovations/improvements, but we have to act immediately. What this means for the club is that we will literally be saving hundreds of thousands of dollars for both the dirt and trucking fees. What this also means for the club is that in making this arrangement, we will be accelerating our timeline on some much-needed improvements to our berm infrastructure. This means providing a better and safer range complex for each and every member and guest of FRGC. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope that you are as excited as we are about even more things taking place to make FRGC better and safer every single day!

 

Please contact any board member with questions or concerns.

LAST SAFETY COURSE OPPORTUNITY

ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS STILL YET TO ATTEND THE SAFETY COURSE!!!

 

On Saturday the 20th of January, we will have our last Safety Course until we welcome our next batch of new members in several months.  There will also be an opportunity for ID photos as well as any reconciliation and updating of phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, etc. It will be held at the FRGC clubhouse.  The class will begin smartly at 10am and the photos will begin at 9am. There will be sodas and water available. 

 

Any member that has not attended and wishes to retain their club membership will still need to pay their club dues on time, but will lose access to the club facilities from 01 April, 2018 until a time that another course is conducted for new members. Any member that is not in compliance that wishes to retain membership will still be required to have their dues paid prior to the 31 March deadline. 

 

If you have not yet attended this course, please, please, please make plans to attend!

 

Please contact Jeff Foster with any questions or concerns.

PASSPORT PHOTOS

A big thank you to those that have mailed in passport photos for their ID cards, but remember you still MUST attend one of the Safety Courses to remain in good standing and be issued the new ID once we move into the new membership year. It is an absolute requirement so if you have not yet attended one of the courses, please plan accordingly as we have the vast majority of the membership already in compliance. 

 

To those that have already attended the Safety Course, thank you very much!

 

Safety Classes & ID Card Photos

 

22 November 2017  

I am proud to announce on behalf of the Board of Directors and club leadership that for the upcoming membership year, Fredericksburg Rod & Gun Club will be implementing a new ID Card system. It will be a computer generated ID that must be worn by members when on the property. It will feature color-coding to denote the membership level as well as the name and photo of the member prominently displayed on the front. The new ID Cards are part of our continued efforts to concentrate on the safety and security of the club and our members. In addition to the ID Cards, we are also implementing a 5-Year Safety Course. It is a requirement for all members in order to maintain access to the club property and ranges. The Safety Committee has prepared a short orientation presentation that the course will be made up of.

 

Initial dates for the safety class are Tuesday the 28th of November, Thursday the 7th of December, and Wednesday the 13th of December.  All classes on these dates will begin at 7pm. Photos for the new ID Cards will be taken during these times beginning at 6:30pm. In addition, in order to better facilitate this process we will be listing dates that Jeff Foster  (Club Secretary/Webmaster/Gate Director/ID Card Director) will be available at the clubhouse to take photos for the ID cards on the announcements portion of the club website. They will also be a mixture of weekdays and weekends and varying in the time of day to help make it easier for the membership. 

 

For those that would prefer, you can also get a passport photo taken and mail it to us at FRGC, PO Box 418, Fredericksburg, VA 22404 no later than 01 January 2018. There are many venues for this such as most drug stores or even the UPS Store. 

 

For those that would like a more streamlined option still, there are several online companies that can facilitate the photo for you, such as http://www.MyPassportPhotos.comwhere you can upload the photo from your computer or mobile device. If you do choose to supply us with a passport photo, please remember to include the full name of the member (to include Jr., Sr., Etc.) on a piece of paper inside the envelope you mail the photos in. 

 

Again, this is absolutely mandatory and club credentials will not be mailed out for next year without a photo for the ID card and the safety course. Promoting range safety, etiquette, and proper equipment usage is our primary concern. We want for everyone to be able to enjoy their membership and usage of the club. Thanks in advance for the support.

 

Questions or comments regarding the policies may be directed to the club leadership. Any questions regarding the ID Cards or photos can be directed directly to Jeff Foster. Contact information for club leadership can be found on the Directors portion of our website.

E-mail correspondence is preferred.
