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 welcome newcomers to the chapter and encourage stewardship of the land.

We will be having New Member Orientation on June 26. There will be someone at the gate to let in potential new members. HE WILL ALLOW ONLY 25 PEOPLE IN! We have decided that a family will be considered as one person for this count. Please remember that a family is considered to be two adults living in the same household. Once through the gate, please drive up the hill to the Rifle Range where we will hold Orientation. Please be there no later than 8:00 to fill out paperwork. Orientation will start at 8:30 am.THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED! If you want a family membership, both individuals must attend the orientation! Please bring either cash or a check for your membership fees; we CANNOT take debit or credit cards!
Membership fees are:
  • Individual membership: $185 ($70 IWLA National dues + $110 Eugene Chapter Range Fees + $5 Gate Access Device fee).
  • Family Membership: $275 ($105 IWLA National dues + $160 Eugene Chapter Range Fees + $10 Gate access Device fee).
For other membership information, please see our Membership page.
We'll have sanitized pens for you to use, or you can bring your own!

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.

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!

The lock has been updated to remove all unpaid members! If your gate access device (fob or card) doesn't work, it may mean you have not paid your 2021 dues. Please contact Melanee Ellis at (541) 484-1090 or by email at melanee @ gmail.com if you have questions.

FOUND: a pair of "bollé" brand sunglasses just outside the right wall of bay 4 on the ground. Please contact Melanee at melanee @ gmail.com or (541) 484-1090 to claim.

Please remember to LOCK THE STEEL SHED DOORS WHEN YOU PUT STEEL AWAY! Also, please 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, Ladies, Rifle and Pistol, will be held again starting in April! Please see our Calendar for any updates and/or instructions. All Covid-19 protocols will continue to be be observed which may include signing a mandatory waiver form.

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!

IWL Ladies Steel Match, Sunday, 5/23 is cancelled due to not enough participation; we will try again on June 27!

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.
