The club where I shoot a lot of IDPA matches is having a membership drive this year – they’ve relaxed the financial requirements to join the club and are pushing for new members. To do my part, I’m going to finally sack up and join. I figure I shoot IDPA and Steel Challenge there, so I ought to put my money where my mouth is and join Atlanta Conservation Club.
In the announcement from their new president, Jim Barbour, he says that there are big plans for Atlanta, which is why this membership drive is happening now.
As we grow the revenue of the club, it will make way for improvements like, a better clubhouse open to all, a working rifle range, free defensive pistol training, fun and informative meetings, an annual family corn roast family picnic, several fundraisers, and the list goes on.
I for one would love to see a rifle range at Atlanta CC. Right now, you can shoot rifles there, but only out to 25 yards. It makes for some fun and sporty 3-gun matches, but you can’t really do any fun long range stuff…at least not yet.
I’m going to join so I can do more to support the shooting sports in Central Indiana – we need all the strong clubs and venues we can get, and right now Atlanta is one of the best. If we can get some more members (and thus, money) into the club, then we’re all going to benefit from that.
