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.
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! Masks will be available if you forget yours!
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!
|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 will be accepting new members in March 2021 after renewal is complete. |
Please watch the web site 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 email@example.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!
|NOTICE: Range Use Fee Increase effective January 2021!|
| Due to unprecedented demand and reflecting a lack of volunteer participation, the Board feels compelled to increase the Range Use Fee (RUF). Effective with 2021 membership renewals, individual membership cost will increase by $40. For several years the annual (Calendar year) RUF has been $70. This will become $110, taking the total cost for an individual membership from $140 to $180. Family memberships will increase from $210 to $270. These changes will be reflected in the annual Dues Notice (pink/blue card) which is typically mailed in October, with payment due by December 31.
|Range Cleaning will be held on October 24, 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!
The Board of Directors October 27 meeting will be held at Countryside Pizza & Grill, 645 River Rd, Eugene, OR 97404 at 6:30 pm; 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!
CANCELLED! IWL Ladies Steel Matches CANCELLED!
Unfortunately, the Ladies Steel Matches will not be held the rest of this summer. We'll pick it up again April 2021.
|Membership Renewals for 2021
2021 Membership renewals will be mailed out the beginning of November. Please remember that the Range Use Fee is now $110 for an Individual Membership; IWLA membership remains $70, so the new dues for an individual membership is now $180. Family membership is now $270 total dues and Range Use Fee. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (541) 484-1090.
Next Range Cleanup, 9/26/2020, 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 email@example.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.
