    Anyone on here that belongs to Apple Valley Gun Club???? Here is my only complaint, MOST Clubs and Ranges do NOT put enough information on their WEB site. For today, the calendar just says: TURKEY SHOOT

    Great, what time, how much, who can shoot, etc. ?????? Why can't enough info be put on the WEB so people can decide if they want to shoot WITHOUT calling the range?????? I don't get it.

    I'm sure anyone who's at the club will be able to shoot. I would try to arrive about 0800 and help set things up. I don't know what they will charge. Club should have posted the information

    Apple Valley,Ca. was the home to Roy Rogers. That is where he built his museum. Look it up on Google Earth. South East of Los angeles, on the way to Vegas.... Jim

    I have to agree with Zardo on this, the OP complained that,

    "Why can't enough info be put on the WEB so people can decide if they want to shoot WITHOUT calling the range?????? I don't get it."

    Yet he complains and post no information about the clubs location???? I guess it isn't so hard to not post the information!!!!!! Do you get it yet?????

    I referred my comments to the originator of this thread the one that is complaining about lack of information not you.

    Not everyone that shoots or reads these threads lives in CA. Some live a considerable distance from your club. So the name of a club with no further information is a toss up.

    Besides you didn't make the comments that I am referring to BBR did. He isn't complaining, Yet!!!!

    I learned very early in life, from my Dad, that I could catch more flies with honey than with tongue venom or HS?

    Mr. Sims, what would it hurt to type a few explanatory words on a shooting forum in case it was overlooked on the web-site? Your attitude toward Bob Lawless speaks volumes and further, possibly explains to me why Matt F. is no longer active in the clubs work? Are you aware that your clubs by-laws once stated this, "there will be no "N.....s or women allowed membership in this club" ?? That little oversight was overlooked from the 30s till I read it and contacted our clubs lawyer and got that changed. There was a lady shooter wanting to join OR own the club at the time!

    Your attitude sux!

    HAP & BOB
    I apologise for any percived "attitude".I thought I was being criticized
    for trying to help,thought Bob's criticizems were directed at me.
    Truth be known,I didnt know about the turkey shoot untill the day before and dont think many others knew either,(VERY LOW TURN OUT).
    Matt and I are good friends and he speaks highly of you Gene.He pulled away due to buying a house,he and crissy are currently rehabing.Yes the calender on
    the web site needs some work!!
    I was not able to give anymore details on the turkey shoot,they were not availible anywhere but the flyer at the range.
    Again sorry guys,no disrespect intended
    Jim Sims
