Next club meeting: Thursday, August 30th @ 7 pm - Monthly business meeting. All Bell City members welcome to attend, raise issues, and participate in the meeting.
New Bell City property gate security & automation: Driveway apron paving complete. The pavement will take a week to cure enough for vehicle traffic so the main gate will be unusable Friday August 10th through Thursday August 16th and reopen on Friday August 17th. We are hopeful that when the driveway apron reopens on the 17th the gate automation equipment will also be functional.
For those members who want an ID to the club gate you now have two options left to you.
- Have a family member, friend, club member, whomever take a digital photo and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org- photo dimensions: approx. 600 x 600 pixels, photo must have a plain background and in jpg format.
- Mail a physical photo - required photo dimensions: 2” x 2” (absolute minimum, larger is better), photo must have a plain background. I will scan your picture to digital format for you. Mail to: Bob LaQuerre, 16 Briar Court, Cromwell, CT 06416
For Pistol, Small bore, Benchrest & Highpower schedules see our calendar.
