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 meeting will be Thursday, September 26th at 7 PM.  If you have a favorite dish you would like to share, bring it along for our potluck supper. We’d love to share it with you. While you’re here, don’t forget to see Ed Whitner. He’s selling Horry Chapter hats/visors, and T’s. Mandatory Range Orientation for new members is held at 5PM. Please bring a pistol and 3 rounds of ammunition along with hearing and eye protection.
The August meeting was dedicated to Marilee Toomey and Mrs. Randolph Elvington, both recently departed member wives. Horry County Councilman Al Allen was unable to attend as our guest speaker. Chapter Board Member Mac Altman spoke in his absence regarding newly proposed changes to the Horry County Gun Ordinance. This new proposal may further reduce areas in the County where people can or can’t shoot. We’re asking our members to attend the next Horry County Council meeting scheduled for 6PM on Sept 3nd, (the day after Labor Day) at the County Judicial Center.  Keep in mind, these are YOUR rights that could become more restricted, limited, or removed depending on how this proposal is written. Let’s fill up the County Council Chambers. Remember, Council already took the inch, now they want a foot.
The Resource Education Center and Berm #4 will be closed on September 14 due to a Leased Concealed Weapons Course being given. Other site facilities will be available to members and guests. If you have a need to go into the building, please be respectful and keep noise to a minimum.
The Aynor Hoedown is Saturday Sep 21st from 9AM until 5PM. We will be selling raffle tickets/hats, tees and memberships. We need volunteers to help with our booth.   
The next monthly pistol/revolver match is Saturday, September 28th @ 10AM. Matches consist of slow and timed fire at 25 yards and rapid fire at 15 yards. Don’t forget about the “Fun Match” using Steel Knockdown/bowling pin/clay bird/6” round steel and Texas Star targets. Fee for each match is $5 (shells not included). There’s also a 50-50 drawing.  Contact Mike Ferrio @ mfusmc78@optonline.net, or see our web page events for further info.
Don’t forget; October’s meeting is also Election Night. If interested in running for Chapter President or becoming a Horry WLA Chapter board member, let an Election Committee member know so your name can be placed on the official election ballot. What better way to let your voice be heard? Ballots will be mailed to all members along with the October’s newsletter. Two Board positions will be voted on for new 3-year terms. Committee members are Brian Koller, Bobby Stubbs and Jeff Fink.
Just a reminder that shooting hours changed September 1st. New shooting hours are now 9AM until 4PM except Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Reminders: Your first stop upon entering our gate should be the “duck box” by the front door to sign in and pay your shooting fees for the day. Also, please remember to pick up your brass and trash upon leaving. Take your trash with you, not in our trash cans. Once you enter the gate, it’s OUR rules. If you have any questions, rules are posted by the front gate. Most of all, have a SAFE and enjoyable day.
Last call for The Wildlife Action Photo Contest.  Submissions are voted on during October’s meeting. The winning photo will be sent to National for further competition. Submit your entries to the Chapter by the Sep 30th deadline.  Color or B/W photos only. Photos must be 8 X 10 in size and taken in a natural setting. You can submit up to 5 entries for consideration.
Chapter Happenings:  Land purchase is still in the acquisition stages. Please do not remove any stakes, colored ribbons or flags that you may see on or around the property. Please be courteous if surveyors are working and ask you to temporarily stop shooting. Four area schools will begin trap/skeet practice starting September 17. The brass disposal buckets will be getting hinged and have locks placed upon them shortly. This is to aid in our brass recycling efforts.
