Range Schedule

 General RCWA member range use schedule:  The RCWA Range facilities are available to the RCWA members 365 days a year unless specifically noted otherwise.

No firearms may be discharged before 8 am or after 8:30 pm.  No rifle, shotgun or pistol use before 12 noon on Sundays with the exception of rimfire pistols and rifles in appropriate ranges.

The following quick reference schedule includes all of the annual range event schedules established at the start of each calendar year.  It also includes contact information for the RCWA Range.  It does not include law enforcement uses of Rifle Range 1 and Range 5 since those change during the year.  It also does not include one off events that get approved during the year to use RCWA facilities.  All of the non regular events and/or range facility closures are listed in the Member News page and/or the Range Schedule page except for Shotgun Fields which are listed in the Shotgun Fields page.

Range Events Schedule

The following are range activities other than regularly scheduled events/matches that my be of interest to members planning on using the range.   Note:  Event schedules for the Shotgun Field facilities are listed under the Shotgun Fields tab and lake camping/nature preserve areas are listed under the Lake tab on the top menu line.


All of these activities are weather dependent and dates may change accordingly !



Starting 15 April, 2024, a large tree will be removed from the skeet field at shotgun range 6.  This will be followed by the removal of the old defunct trap house and the end skeet house which had major electrical damage from lightning hit on the tree that was removed.  This will be followed by landscaping and leveling the end of the skeet field.   This will be followed by constructing a new end skeet house that is now level in elevation with the rest of the field and make this end of the skeet field operate in a consistent manner with the rest of the skeet field operation

This work will progress over a number of months. This is right at the end of the entrance road pavement on your right as you enter the parking areas for facilities in the clubhouse area. Please pay attention while this work is taking place over the next several months.

********** Law Enforcement Training **********

RCWA has annual contracts with some of the local law enforcement groups to provide range facilities for staff training.  They currently have contracts with Rowan County Sheriffs Department and the Cleveland Police Department.

Due to special requirements for law enforcement training,  Range 5 and the Rifle Range 1 will be closed to RCWA members at specific times when law enforcement training is occurring.  Please stay away from these range facilities when they are in use by law enforcement.
The detailed law enforcement training schedules will be posted on this web site as they are made available to RCWA.   General law enforcement range use guidelines are posted on Rifle Range 1 and on Range 5.  RCWA members are expected to observe these guidelines when law enforcement personnel are present for training exercises.
