NSSA Archers will hold the first Clout Archery event of the season Tuesday May 9th @ 6PM on the Trap Field. Events will follow on the second Tuesday of the month throughout the summer.
What is Clout you ask? Archers shoot arrows at a flag on a pole (“the Clout”) from a long distance. Points are scored depending on how close each arrow lands to the flag. This is great fun and a lighthearted event. All are welcome!
NSSA’s Rifle Committee will once again hold sight-ins days this year for hunting rifles on November 19 and 20, and also Nov 26 and 27, from 8 am til 4 pm each day. These dates are the Saturday and Sunday before and after Thanksgiving.
Come on out and get you deer rifle ready for the season, and enjoy swapping stories with other hunters.
In response to feedback from the recent Ladies Pistol Class, NSSA is hosting a low key, Ladies Only day Saturday November 5th from 10am to 2pm on the West Range. This event is open to the public – all are invited to participate.
The range will be restricted to lady shooters only between 10am and 2pm. You are free to arrive anytime within that period and leave whenever you like. The closer to 2pm you arrive, the less time you will have to shoot. In the unlikely event we are overwhelmed with lady shooters, we may ask to relinquish some time for later arrivals. We look forward to having you participate.
NSSA will furnish targets, loaner eye and ear protection (if needed), and Range Safety Officers will be on duty. The cost is $5.00 each.
Participants need to bring their own handgun and proper ammunition. If you are uncertain of your handgun manipulation skills, our trained Range Safety Officers will be available to assist you.
Please dress for the weather. In the event of inclement weather (significant rain) the event will be canceled via E-mail to our members.

NSSA hunters: The West Range will be in use for a scheduled event on Saturday November 5th from 10am to 2pm. Please use caution if you are hunting in that area.
This program gives rifle owners a great way to practice their marksmanship with a variety of matches during the year featuring a variety of rifle types. The competition is low-key, with the only prizes being bragging-rights. Safety is taken very seriously but all other aspects of the matches are rather informal. Most participants are only interested in doing better than they did in their last match.
We welcome any newcomers to our program, which runs from April through October. The match fee is just $10 and the matches are open to the public. We have all the equipment needed to try out the program, available for free loan.
We would very much like to encourage youth participation (which is a cornerstone of the national CMP program). To that end, anyone under the age of 18 participates for free.
The matches are generally held on the 1st and 3rdSundays of the month.
The September NRA High-Power match has been rescheduled for Sunday, Sept 25th. Sign-in will be at 8:30 and the match starts at 9:00.
We start each stage in position (a safety decision).
Each position gets two sighter rounds. So there’s a total of 58 shots, of which 50 shots are for score.
