Our key objective is to allow anyone to turn up with what they've got and enjoy competing on a level playing field where ability is the differentiator. You don't need a R10000 rifle or be an expert marksman to enjoy yourself.
The range is on privately owned property, therefore NOBODY is allowed to use the shooting range without an official range officer being present. We are usually there on Saturday's between 10h00 and 15h00, but that is not always the case. Please check with us beforehand and make sure that you are familiar with the rules.
From the R102, take the Stellenbosch turnoff (Polkadraai). The entrance is about 1km further, on the right just before the traffic lights.
To ensure that everybody gets along, new applicants must be nominated by a member. Senior members will decide, whenever they feel like doing it, if you are going to be a member or not.
Members can invite guests (maximum of 2 people) to attend a shoot, but the same guests can not be invited more than once a month. If they want to use the range, they'll have to become members.
Membership fees are R120 per year and will be used for club expenses like maintenance, targets etc. No membership fees required for any under 18's, but they must be accompanied by an adult club member.
