Job posting and meet our new CRSO
The job description for our Operations Officer is officially being posted here, and it has been emailed to all via our listserv. This is the time for those who know of someone who can step in, get trained and perform the duties required. The BoD is looking for the right skill mix plus willingness to stay on the job for the for seeable future as the training for this position takes some time and those who help train the Operations Officer do so as volunteers. So get out your contact list or rolodex cards and start networking.
This Sunday the 27th of March we will have a meeting in the WTBn classroom starting at 0800 with our new CRSO, Ian Pleet. In general, he will address:
Range SOPs to be developed
RSO Testing procedures
Range Scheduling & posting responsibilities
Rec Fire Coverage
RSO Range preferences
RSO classroom instruction vis a vis QSC needs
The Board of Directors want to extend our thanks to all who came out to the membership meeting this Saturday. In addition, thanks to all who volunteered their time for the target party and our booth at the gun show in Fredericksburg.
In addition, we hope to see many of those new faces from the gun show become members and participate in all our club has to offer.

Please check the calendars for the months of March, April and May often. Due to the domino effect of having to reschedule clinics and matches, there continues to be changes so again, check often!
QSC wants to apologize and thank our members and participants for their patience and understanding during the unforseen event of lead mining.
QSC Board of Directors
Picture is worth a 1000 words and update
As the saying goes...here is a larger photograph of what lead mining is all about. As one can clearly see, this is no easy task and the work being performed is extensive. Essentially, the berms are gone and will be rebulit. This is what has caused the rescheduling of our March matches and clinics and cancelled all rec fire on affected ranges.
The pistol clinic and mid-range regionals have now been rescheduled. Course of fire pending for the rifle match. Information on the pistol clinic is on the calendar and can be downloaded as a pdf. Once information is availalbe for the long range clinic it will be posted so stay tuned and check back often.
Range 1 has seen a steady increase in use and some of our members and guests have inquired on what is the appropriate target. As Most of you are aware, we cannot employ personal target stands that have metallic content above the surface of the ground, regardless of the Range. Many of you have asked how portable target stands could be constructed. Gene Szymanski, one of our consistent RSOs on Range 1, has graciously shared his personal design. The following is a link in pdf that explains a simple way to build a portable stand from PVC.
