ANNUAL NRA DINNER will be held on March 18, 2016 at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville. WLOPA reserved four tables for members and their guests, first come first served.  Tickets available at the bar starting 2/20/16.  Members may reserve seats starting 2/13/16 by sending us a check made payable to Friends of NRA. The cost per ticket is $60, with a meal choice of Prime Rib, Chicken or Shrimp.  Please specify your meal choice when you reserve your seat.


WINTER WEATHER REMINDER - during winter weather members must use their judgement in using club facilities, as we cannot eliminate all slipping hazards.  


Pick up your brass and your shotgun shells, and please place them in the designated pails.  Make sure NO LIVE ROUNDS are thrown in the pails.  Live rounds or misfires must be discarded in the RED container marked "Duds Only".  The brass belongs to the club and is not to be taken off premises.

If anyone is interested in Archery, please contact Mike Conant at mconant51@gmail.com.
