Notice

Welcome to our beautiful and beloved club. Please help us keep it that way by picking up after yourself and taking your trash home with you.

You carried it in, so you carry it out.

The good folks who volunteer their time to mow should not have to stop and pick up debris that could damage the mower or otherwise be thrown by the mower.

Confirmed NAVHDA work day July 1st 2023 starting 9am at the pond at Greene Rod and Gun Club. Thank you Joe Mastriano.
Ok to park either inside the club on the pistol ranges or on Foster Hill Rd or the small parking area inside the broken gate back entrance to the pond, as long as not too soggy to avoid getting stuck.
 
Any Greene Rod and Gun Club members that would also like to help would be welcome to bring string trimmer to weed-whip along the edge of the pond ot the water line as well as clear brush and weed whip the “dry” side of the dam, opposite the water. The club owns a DR Premier string trimmer on wheels that I can make available, locked in the IDPA storage shed.
 
Daniel Fassett and I worked Sat 6/24/2023 to improve water flow at the overflow spillway as well as cleared at the drain pipe. Chopped out a large tree root that was impeding water flow (one that I had been chopping on for years, so glad it is finally gone).

 


Thank you, thank you, thank you to the seven good folks that showed up to work party 6/24/2023. Jim Driscall brought his tractor with brush hog to mow many difficult areas including the roadway ditches, Mike West fixing up restroom walls, JP painting interior window trim, Ron Lee mowing with club tractor and string trimming, Warren Polidori string trimming and picking up debris on pistol and rifle ranges, Daniel Fassett string trimming entrance and roadway and helping me clear the pond pillway to get water flowing better. Myself, Jeff Chimileski trimming branches from main parking area near clubhouse.

 


Reminder of rule 15:

15. Membership cards are to be displayed on lanyard while on club property

 
Reminder of rule 18:
  1. ALL persons, members, guests or otherwise must sign and submit the waiver/release/hold harmless agreement.

All members must sign the waiver on the back side of the membership application.

There are blank waiver forms for guests on the side of the clubhouse. Complete the form, sign it and drop in the orange lock box. The waiver and hold harmless agreement is an important part of the membership application as well as blank forms available at the clubhouse for guests to complete and sign and drop in the orange lock box when the member has a guest pass. Our insurance agent was very clear with us that if a claim/lawsuit were to happen and it is discovered that we made no attempt to implement a waiver and hold harmless agreement that we would lose our affordable insurance. In other words, our insurance may become prohibitively expensive and perhaps might shut down the club or else we would need to raise our membership fee considerably. This is no joke. Not to be taken lightly.

Main gate combination lock:

The style/model of lock changed October 2022 to Pro-Series Master lock due to internal failure of previous lock. Find the 4 digit combination number on the back of your membership card and rotate the numbers to align with the black dash marks along the top position, not the center. In this example 0037 lines up with the dash marks (0037 is not the real combination). When letting yourself in on the “off-hours”, it is preferred for you to lock yourself inside to prevent non-members from helping themselves to the club. Evidence of vandelous behavior and poor housekeeping has been improving as more members are locking themselves inside rather than leave the gate wide open when there is no director supervised event happening.

If you are not a member and find yourself locked inside, call the Chenango County Sheriff at (607) 334-2000. Reminder, the definition of trespassing is to enter land or property without permission.

Thank you!

June 19, 2021: Thank you, thank you thank you Roy Pfoh, Jeff Chimileski, Jim Driscall, Scott Shelanskey and Dan Fassett. Great job! We now have red danger ribbon surrounding the 500 target/impact area. One of the next steps is for board to decide if this ribbon at 200 feet from bullet path is same set back distance to secure permanent warning signs to attach to trees warning of rifle range area ahead.
