IWLA Eugene

Eugene Chapter

The Eugene Chapter of the Izaak Walton League has worked to provide a safe and convenient place to practice shooting for local residents for over 50 years. We are a members only range and not open to the public. The chapter and members also participate in a wide variety of voluntary conservation efforts affecting our land and wildlife. We encourage stewardship of the land.

YES! The Range is open!

Until further notice social distancing and mask requirements are in place when you are sharing the range with people who are not members of your immediate household. This includes shooting matches!

The range is open daily from 8:00AM to 7:00PM or sundown, whichever is earlier. The fourth Saturday of each month is range clean-up day. All or part of the range may be closed for repair, maintenance, or improvements. Eugene Chapter members are encouraged to volunteer for these activities and earn hours toward your work bond (which means you pay less for your Range Use Fee). Please remember to put a note into the boxes in either pistol bay 3 or at the rifle range whenever you do any work on the range so you can get credit for it!

Please remember to pick up after yourself after shooting! This means, take down your targets, clean up any garbage, and pick up your spent shells!

All Shooting Matches are cancelled due to Covid-19 until further notice. Please see our Calendar for any updates.
Membership Renewals for 2021
2021 Membership renewals have been mailed out! The amount you owe is clearly shown in the bottom right corner of the pink renewal card. This amount now includes the Range Use Fee, so no additional fees need to be paid for 2021 once you pay your renewal fees! Please make checks/money orders/etc. out to Eugene IWLA. If you want to pay with PayPal, you will need to pay a $5.00 transaction fee in addition to your dues. So, for example if you are paying Individual dues, you would add $5.00 to the $180.00 for a total of $185.00 payment through Paypal. Please use eugeneiwla@gmail.com as the pay to email address. All dues and fees are due by January 30! Members who do not renew before March 1, 2021 will have their Gate access devices (fobs) deactived on that date! If you have any issues regarding your dues and/or Range Use Fees, please contact Melanee Ellis, Membership Coordinator, at eugeneiwla@gmail.com or (541) 484-1090.
Due to unprecedented demand, the board has decided to temporarily suspend taking new members, therefore there will be no new member orientation until further notice. We anticipate we may be accepting new members in March 2021 after renewal is complete.

Please watch the web site and Calendar for the next orientation date.

Lead Harvesters! Protecting the environment is one of the main precepts of the Izaak Walton League of America. Harvesting lead from the range is one of the ways the Eugene Chapter adheres to this ideal. We report the amount that has been harvested to the DEQ to show that we are serious about keeping our land clean. If you are harvesting lead from the Range, please let us know! Please contact John Gross by email at river1@continet.com. We would love to find out how much you have harvested! That information will be used in a report we do for the DEQ, but your name will not be used. Thanks for helping us make our environment better!

Registration opens February 1, 2021 on PractiScore

Range Cleaning will be held on January 23, starting at 8:00 am -- we feel we can maintain "social distance" while on the range and still be able to get things done!
Please see our Calendar for events!
Please have a safe and happy holiday season! Next Board Meeting will be on January 26. Place TBA. Please contact Jeremy or Carol if you have issues that may need to be covered. Thank you for your understanding as we all try to get through these interesting times!

Next Range Cleanup, 1/23/2021, starting at 8:00 am.

Remember, for every hour you work at the Range, you get $10.00 off your Range Use Fee at the next renewal (Workbond credit)! Don't forget to put a note into one of the boxes in either pistol bay 3 or at the rifle range or by emailing workbondhours@gmail.com whenever you do any work on the range. Please include your name, the date, the number of hours you worked, and what you did for that time to make sure you get your credit for it.

Please remember that during Board authorized events, the portion of the range that is being used for that event is closed to nonparticipants.

Range Safety information is in our Range Manual (must have Adobe Acrobat).
