Shotgun Fields

----------  Skeet and Trap Shotgun Fields Operations  ----------

The RCWA shotgun fields are now open under a new format  (Eff. 1 March 2022) to all RCWA members and their guests.  The RCWA shotgun fields are operated by an experienced group of RCWA members identified as Shotgun Range Officers (SRO).  Please contact one of the following SRO members about the processes of becoming SRO or CM certified or using the RCWA shotgun facilities.

----------   Shotgun Fields Schedule   ----------

There are no longer any scheduled days nor hours of operation for the for the RCWA shotgun fields.   RCWA members who are either Shotgun Range Officers (SRO) or Certified Members (CM) (along with their guests) may use the RCWA shotgun fields at any time the RCWA range is open for RCWA members.

As a result of this new operational model, the RCWA shotgun fields are no longer open to the general public.  The RCWA front range gate will no longer be open to the general public for shotgun field access.  Please note that it is a cash only operation for both non-range members and RCWA members.

 

Shotgun Fields Special Events Impacting Availability

Any scheduled shotgun events/matches or scheduled field maintenance are listed here.  If there is any shotgun fields maintenance (mowing and/or trimming) in progress, the shotgun fields are closed until finished.  Ever attempt is made to keep the mowing and trimming to off hours but it is often controlled by weather impacts and other range priorities at times.

---------- RCWA Shotgun Fields Operation Process ----------

RCWA "contracts" out the operation of the RCWA shotgun fields (skeet, trap and 5 stand ) to other parties on a calendar year basis.  The current RCWA shotgun fields operation is contracted out to a group of RCWA members as noted above.  Bids/proposals for operating the RCWA shotgun fields are accepted each fall.  Interested parties should have bids for operating the RCWA shotgun fields for the next calendar year in the hands of the RCWA Board by Nov. 1 for consideration.
