Please Check our Monthly Calendar of Events@
Skeet and Trap Ranges are opened Tuesday and Thursdays 10am-2pm and Sundays from 11AM until 4PM. Check with Ed Whitner regarding nighttime trap/skeet shoot on Tuesdays
Our next scheduled meeting will be held on 25 Jun as originally scheduled, but in keeping with Federal CDC and SC guidelines regarding the COVID-19 Virus, social distancing will be observed. Our priority is the health and safety of our members. HOWEVER, all ranges are open for your shooting pleasure during regular posted operating hours. If you participate in the Tuesday/Thursday or Sunday Trap Shoots, masks are required; additionally, correct change is needed to pay for your trap & skeet rounds as we are not giving change from the cash box due to COVID-19. The raffle for the .22 Caliber Savage Target rifle that was to be awarded at our March meeting will have the winner drawn at our June meeting. Please check your E-mail, the HCWLA web site and our Facebook page for updates. If you have questions or concerns, contact the HCWLA Executive Committee or Board member. Jfinksr@gmail.com 843-855-7819.
The ATA will have their monthly shoot at HCWLA on June 6, 2020, starting at 9am.
Horry Chapter will hold a CWP class June 13th starting at 8 AM as scheduled. Cost is $65.00. Participants will need to bring their pistol plus a minimum of 50 rounds of ammunition, safety glasses, ear protection, and a strong, side holster. You will need to reserve your seat as there is a 20-person limit. $35 will hold your spot. Contact Johnny Goebel@ (843)997-5613 for reservations and deposit.

On a sad note, Vicky Stroups, who presented us with our Osprey Fish Photo for auction, passed away. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
Applications are still available for the Dan LaGasse Scholarship. Three children from within the HCWLA family will receive a scholarship to camp in Mullins. The award includes camp fees and a small stipend for the kids to spend at camp. Sessions start in early June, so if you have children or grandchildren that would like to attend, get your applications submitted.
As a reminder: Rules and Regulations will still be enforced without exception. Please remember to lock the gate upon entry, and if you are last to leave the Resource Education Center, ensure that all doors are locked and firmly secured. Remember, “if you do not have your key, you will not be let in.” Your first stop upon entry is to sign in and pay your daily fee. If not shooting, just sign in and indicate “work party” or “visiting”. Range Safety Officers are here to help you if needed and ensure that range safety rules are being followed.
Even though we had been closed, work never stopped at HCWLA. Frank, Brian Jeff, Dan and Mike Ferrio removed the old skeet cover roof, raked and cleared the new area, grass was cut, weeds whacked, debris cleaned up and the backstops realigned, berms releveled and rebuilt. Also, note that all the berms were repaired and berm #8 and the driveway near the rifle range were raised.
