SAND SPRINGS SPORTSMAN CLUB
RANGE RULES AND REGULATIONS – REVISED AUGUST 2009

PREFACE: The range and facilities of this club are for the exclusive use of its members and invited guest(s) when accompanied by a member. The guest and the club member are to be on the same time and same range (in other words the guest should be your shadow). All charges for your guest shooting are to be paid by the club member only. Walk-ons are to pay their charges and sign the sheet as a guest.

Per Article II of our constitution, the object of this club is the development of sportsmanship and the promotion of hunting and fishing sports. All members should show their true sportsmanship by inviting “walk-ons” desiring participation to be your guest, provided they show proper sportsmanship and their participation does not unduly hamper other club members activities. Members must ask their guests and “walk-ons” to read the posted Range Rules and must remain present during the guests stay.
