FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF MEMBERSHIP OR LEGAL ACTION

All members should take responsibility of the grounds and self-govern the range asking non-members and offenders of the rules and safety to leave the premises.  Then notify the club when this situation has occurred.  You, as members, have the responsibility to help make the range available, useful and safe for all of us.
