Important!!! Annual Club Dues Payment

It's that time of year again, membership dues must be received by June 30, 2018 if you are to remain an active member in the club. An invoice was mailed out in May and of course dues could have also been paid at the just completed Annual Meeting/Work Day. If you are on the club email list another reminder will be sent out in an effort to make sure that everyone is aware of the upcoming deadline. Any questions may be directed to

ALGC 2018 Annual Meeting/Work Day

The club has completed another successful Annual Meeting/Work Day. We had approximately sixty people out of our three hundred plus members in attendance this year. We know that not everyone can attend these events for one reason or another so keep in mind that we also have a Work Day event coming up in October.

Everyone put in a hard mornings work and we were able to complete pretty much everything that we had set out to do. I don't think the club has ever looked better and I wanted to express my appreciation not only for the members that showed up Sunday but also for the members that work so hard to maintain the club on a day to day basis. If you are interested in becoming more active as a volunteer please contact me through Remember that almost everything that is done to maintain our club is done by a volunteer member freely giving their time and effort to make ALGC what it is today.

This year's Annual Meeting was mostly routine with reports and general discussion. We did pass the proposed By-Laws change dealing with compressing the lengthy dues deliquency process. This change takes effect immediately so as a reminder your annual dues payment must be received by June 30, 2018 or your membership status will be considered delinquent and terminated. If this occurs, the delinquest member may petition to restore active membership status but will have to become current with dues and also pay the new member initiation fee. So if you if you haven't yet responded to the invoice that was mailed out in May or paid dues at the Annual Meeting it's time to take care of that obligation. The end of the month is approaching fast.

New Camera System

The club's security camera system has been upgraded with new HD cameras and recorder. An additional upgrade to the new system is the ability for the club's elected and appointed officers to access the live camera feeds and playback search function without having to physically be at the club. 

So there is no confusion, this means that while you are at the club it is possible that you could be viewed by a club officer if one happens to be accessing a live camera feed while you are there. This is not meant to be intimidating, just think of it as having a remote officer on duty at any given time.

We've had a few issues on the ranges. Time to review the Membership Agreement.

Range Usage Violations

This is a direct violation of the Membership Agreement that we all signed

 7. No cross-lane shooting is allowed on any range. The outdoor shooting benches are numbered with their corresponding numbers on the downrange target positions. The indoor range is divided left and right. No target shall be fired at in such a manner as to permit a projectile to strike the ground, miss a backstop, or strike a frame, post, wall, or structure downrange. Violation of this basic rule will not be tolerated. 

It's time to reread the club Membership Agreement

There have been an increasing number of range usage violations noted recently. These photos show one that we didn't catch in time.

All targets must be placed in the designated hanging areas on belting, plywood or cardboard. The only place that targets may be placed on the ground is directly in front of the 100 yard berm to the left of the steel targets.

The Membership Agreement isn't just a piece of paper we all signed to become members. The Membership Agreement spells out the rules; the things that we can and can't do while at the club. Everyone needs to review the Membership Agreement.

This is why the Membership Agreement prohibits this type of target placement

In this case the member missed the bottle with every single shot. They did manage to put consistent hits on the top of the post at the 200 yard line. These hits pretty much destroyed the post top and have now created a situation that will cause the post to fail prematurely. A violation like this will result in disciplinary action or worse yet expulsion from the club.
