 VSRPA Update - 4/26/2022

As you should now know, the VSRPA has now executed a short-term license for the use of CEATS/EAFR, and we have now built a shooting schedule for the year.

On 4/24, a meeting was held for VSRPA members, with that meeting electing Peter Viau as the VP of Rifle and Larry Grace elected as VP of Pistol.  Bruce Baroffio will remain as President, with Chris Bradley continuing to serve as Treasurer & Secretary.  Given that over 400 invitation e-mails were sent, it was disappointing to only have 11 members present.

As you will see on the Schedules, we have a number of events scheduled.  In order to run any event, the VSRPA must provide an Officer in Charge (OIC) and a Range Safety Officers (RSO).  Both of these individuals need to go through a RSO/OIC briefing that is run by Range Control staff - information on when that briefing is scheduled can be found further below.

For the past many years, only a handful of VSRPA members took the time to take the briefing, such that they could then help run an event, meaning that the burden of running those events fell primarily onto that handful of people.  The fact that others do not step up means that that handful gets burned out, which is NOT fair.

Moving forward, more VSRPA members need to step forward to take the briefing so that they can then be in a position to help spread the load of running events, as the handful who have been doing it for years are going to start stepping back.  If no one else steps forward - we will all lose because those events WILL BE canceled.

Now is the time to step up and help out,  Running the line does NOT mean you cannot shoot, in fact:  Anyone serving as RSO or OIC will be exempted from all fees but the new $5 range fee.

As you will see, the State Matches have been moved away from Memorial Day, as 3 day weekends are problematic regarding coverage in Range Control.

Stay Tuned for more Info as it becomes available.

CEATS RSO/OIC Briefings:  These are held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, in addition to the 2nd Sunday of each month, starting at 11:00 and running for about 20 minutes.  Please contact the Secretary if you want to take this briefing so that you can then serve as a Range Safety Officer (RSO) or an Officer In Charge (OIC).

The VSRPA gratefully thanks the Vermont Army National Guard (VTARNG) for the use of the Camp Ethan Allen Training Site (CEATS) located in Jericho / Bolton Vermont.  Through the direct support of the VTARNG, VSRPA members have access to this outstanding facility, a facility which is one of the best ranges of its type in New England.

The VSRPA is PROUD to support the Vermont National Guard.

Note to Members / Interested Parties:
If your e-mail address has recently changed, or the VSRPA does not have your e-mail address, please consider contacting the
Secretary with your information.  This will save us a lot of money and make correspondence easier.
