OUTDOOR ranges reopening May 1st

The Clubhouse will remain closed and will possibly open May 8th or we will follow state level guidance to select a date.

** Update 5/7/2020 – We will permit clubhouse access when York County goes to a “Code Yellow” status. **

Any person proceeding onto Club property is doing so at your own risk. The York Rifle Range is not responsible for your choice to use the Range.

Not reading the guidelines below does not exempt you from following them. Not following these guides may have you and your guests, if you brought them, asked to remove yourself from the Range by a Club Officer or Director.

  1. Continue to follow the State recommended guidelines for Social Distancing and gathering in groups.
  2. If you feel sick, GO HOME.
  3. 2 Guests per member will be allowed as normal – Sign in your guest(s) and pay the $1 guest fee BEFORE you visit any range. The guest log-in sheet will be on the Porch by the targets.
  4. If you need targets, there will be a limited supply available on the Clubhouse porch and a place to put your money for what you take, targets are not FREE. It is suggested, until the clubhouse is reopened, that you bring your own range approved paper targets.
  5. The York Rifle Range does not have any paid employees to decontaminate after each person’s visit.
  6. You should treat your visit at each range as if it is contaminated and take appropriate actions when you are done using the range. If you bring disinfectant, you can clean and disinfect the area you will be using.

ENTIRE RANGE TEMPORARILY CLOSED

On March 27, 2020 The Governor extended his STAY AT HOME ORDER to include York County, PA.

At this time, the Officers and Directors of the York Rifle Range have decided to CLOSE the entire range due to the coronavirus threat.

We will follow the Governor’s and the Secretary of Health’s directions regarding the coronavirus going forward.

By closing the range, we hope it will also allow the range to “Self-cleanse” by not having new contamination by someone who may not even be aware they are carrying the virus.

We hope and pray that you and your family stay safe and healthy, and look forward to seeing you here at the range in the near future as we continue to practice Social Distancing so that we can beat this virus, not only here at the range but in Pennsylvania and the entire United States.

Updates on this closure will be posted here on the website in the top banner and/or as “News” post.

Public Sight-in and Running Deer

Mark your calendars! The annual Public Sight-in and Running Deer dates are set for the two Sundays before Thanksgiving. This year 2017 the dates are November 12 and November 19 from 8am to sunset. Don’t miss it! 

This event is open to the public and non-members are welcome on these dates only. Any type of hunting rifle may be sighted-in and if needed, assistance will be available. 

Sight-in will be held rain or shine. Stop by the clubhouse to warm up and get some refreshments as well as conversing with fellow members and friends. There’s always a good story to be heard! 

Weather permitting we will again hold the annual “running of the deer”. Try your skills on our moving deer target. You’ll get three trips across the range for a modest fee, proceeds to go to the club for range upkeep. Again this year we are continuing a 5- shot string maximum for each run for safety reasons as well as reducing wear and tear on the equipment. Also for these reasons we ask that no slug guns or calibers larger than 30 cal. be fired at the deer target. 

And just in case you were wondering, the pistol and shotgun ranges will also be available for use those days, too. So come on out and make a day of it! 

We’re sorry but the outdoor .22 range will be closed because the operators for the running deer are behind that range in the woods and they might not appreciate the gunfire coming at them from both sides of the little area they are hiding in. 

The Membership Secretary will also be available those days from 11am to 4pm so you can pay your York Rifle Range 2017 dues and get you membership card. Payment may be made by cash or check. 

If you are not an NRA member, now would be a great time to join at a discounted rate; if you are an NRA member, you can renew thru the club also at a discounted rate. Checks or Credit Cards are preferred for NRA membership. Make checks payable to the NRA.
