Whether you’re a long-time member or have just recently joined the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club, you likely appreciate the range of services available to you as a member. Whatever it is that drew you to join the club—from the fantastic shooting facilities, regular shooting events, or NRA certified training classes; to the fabulous restaurant, bar, and dance floor; or regular social events including live music, kids fishing derbies, and Easter Egg hunts – there is something here for everyone. Our ability to offer these valuable services at such a low cost is due to the work of our volunteers. As a non-profit organization, most of the work at the club is done by members who volunteer their time and energy to keep everything running smoothly.
If you would like to be a part of the continued success of the Club, we are looking for volunteers for some of the opportunities listed below. Whatever time you can give, whatever your skill set or passion — you can make a huge difference in how your club runs, while becoming more connected to the HHRGC community. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can help to keep our club the success that it is, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Construct a kiosk featuring club info, map, calendar, etc. in front of the electrical panel by the trap shack.
- We have 50 Gun Range Warning signs to be posted around the club perimeter, boundaries need to be determined from club maps.
- Need a club member who is a lawyer who could help with writing some contract language for the club.
- Our local Boy Scout Council has need of a volunteer to oversee the summer camp shooting sports program. Please help spread the word at our club. There’s a National Camping School course coming up in the 2nd week of June at Camp Meriwether, in Oregon, and the candidate will first have to pass the application, interview, and background check processes. The individual must be at least 21 years of age. We believe all the certifications necessary will be picked up at National Camping School.
- Range Projects
- Target boards on the rifle range and pistol range need to be replaced when necessary.
- Almost weekly rebuilding in the action pistol bays.
- All 3 ranges have at least one garbage can that needs to be emptied.
- Our shotgun fields usually have something to rake, bag, or otherwise clean up.
- Plastic wads over towards the impact area need to be bagged and hauled to Coupeville.
- Clubhouse Projects
- Scrape and repaint the fascia boards around the perimeter of the main clubhouse, which are all chipped, pealing and mostly devoid of paint. The club likely has the paint and the rollers/brushes and ladders, although short scaffolding may be handier than ladders.
- Membership Services
- Need 3 or 4 people that would be willing to help on the Membership Committee. This involves helping with stuffing envelopes and attaching mailing labels a couple times a year (Nov. & Feb), plus being available the day of our membership drive to show visitors around, help take in applications, and answer questions.
