Thank you to those the help build some range tables, cut up some scrap iron, general clean up. It was a cold, cold day out, but we did get some things done. We will try this again in the spring, stay tuned!!

Recently 100.3 the X ventured outdoors to the PRGC to do a little shooting and sniping and enjoy the great outdoors. The 3 radio DJ's had a little contest between themselves and enjoyed a day at the range. Check out the Video!

On Feb 15th, 2014, the Parma Rod and Gun club activivated it's new electronic gate entry system. The board spent the entire day at the range assiting members with the new gate procedure and helping new members with their memberships. The weather was terrible in the morning, but we still had a great turnout for the day.
We anticipate that their may be a problem or two with the new gate, we have tried to forsee all the issues that may happen, but as all of the membership starts using it, there will be something that comes up that we didn't think about. If this happens to you, please let us know right away, and we will get it fixed. Just use the contact form at the top of the page to get a hold of us.Thank you to all the members that make this a great club to be a part of, and enjoy your range!
Spring is a season of change and new life, and that is certainly true for our club. If you have been to the range recently you are aware of the change that has taken place. If not, you need to make a trip to fully appreciate what has happened. If you have been around for a few years you know that the club is always growing and transforming. We have been hosting more and more events that has made the club recognizable around the nation. With the growth has come some growing pains. One of the most often heard feedback is that the members just want a place to shoot/ When we have big events often the whole range is shut down leaving no place for the members that are not participating to shoot their guns.
We know and we heard. We are so pleased and proud to announce the member’s only shooting area. It is located where the small-bore area used to be. The member’s only pits include a 50 yard pit and a 200 yard pit. Both pits have covers, tables, backer boards and benches. The 50 yard pit will also feature permanent steel for the handguns shooters to use and practice on.
Also new to the range is a atv/motorcycle load and unload ramp. Many more of these vehicles have been put in use at the range and we felt this was a nice amenity to the range. Down by the members only was a camping spot that many have used. Last fall we installed sprinklers and planted grass, it is taking off and looks amazing. Every member should be very proud of this area of the range.
I would be remiss if I did not mention all of the hard work and volunteers that made this happen. First is two board members Gary Lies and Steve Leonard. These two guys are supposed to be retired, but they have been putting in more than full time hours making all these improvements happen. Without Gary and Steve we don’t have the new covers, concrete, signs, etc, etc. Charles Franks has been the guy running the small cat and tractor around. He has been instrumental in making the range look good after the big equipment tears it up. He also was instrumental in the atv ramp and the new irrigation and seed for the camping area. Last is Jim Shake, he is often out there spraying weeds, cleaning, watering, etc. He has been a huge help in maintaining and keeping the range clean and weed free. There are many, many others that all help out. If you see someone working at the range, stop and tell them thanks.
Thanks for respecting this and enjoy the range!
