Good News!

We received a slight reprieve in our property tax increase this year.  As a result, we won’t have to raise prices quite as much as we first thought.  We’re currently looking at a .50 / round increase overall instead of a $1 / round increase.

Hope you can join us on 4/10 for our season opener practice shooting night.  League begins on 4/17.

Practice shooters are ALWAYS welcome! There is no commitment necessary, simply come out and shoot a round or two whenever you’d like.

Firearms safety training

The LPSC is again hosting a firearms safety course this year.  It will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning April 2nd.  This training is available to persons 11 years of age and older.

Please contact Doug Minnick if you are interested.  He can be reached at 320-224-5942 (cell) or 320-395-2143 (home)

Price Increase for 2013.

Due to an 83% increase in our property taxes for 2013, and also significant increases in insurance premiums, we have been forced to raise shooting prices for 2013.

This year’s prices are as follows:

League  $8.00

Practice  $7.00

Lewis  $7.50

The league team registration fee remains at $40/year per team. This fee includes memberships for the first five primary shooters.  Subs may purchase memberships for $5/person if they desire.

We sincerely apologize for having to raise prices this year.  We have been able to absorb many of the increases in fixed costs that we have seen over the past several years, but this tax increase was just too much to bear.   We are not alone:  The other sportsmen’s clubs in McLeod County received similar notices.  We are working with these other clubs to see if we can work out a better solution for next year.  Thank you for your understanding.

Shooting begins on Wednesday, April 10th with practice shooting.  League shooting will begin on 4/17.
