    To the top for this fine shooting facility! Shot my first ever registered targets there. It was the clubs first ever ATA shoot held in May of 1970! Wish I could make this one too, 40 years later!

    Shot there almost every weekend in the early 80s. Shot with Hugh Jamison, Mike Wood, Doug Byndas, Doug Lewis, and Big Lance from LA. Great background - blue sky. The only drawback was the temp. Definitely warm. Dudley.......

    The gate leading into Edwards AFB from the West, Rosamond, is undergoing construction. Give yourself a few extra minutes to enter. As a federal facility, speed limits are strictly enforced, including the 25 mph construction areas.

    Long range weather says 83 deg and light winds 6mph so maybe we are going to be lucky. Bill Mclain

    Current weather forecasts show light winds Saturday morning with temperature reaching 84 for a high and overnight low 52.
    If the wind stays calm, scores should be high.

    Do you have to call to get on base, or can you show up with your I.D and go to the club. does the club put your name on a list at the gate.

    We currently plan on having 5 traps going.
    Security at the gate will be aware of the event but you can call the Rod & Gun Club if you have problems 661-275-8727

    See you there

    I just spoke with Renee, she said the phone was busy because of the incoming calls. Call the number, leave a message with Day you will be here, name (spell last name), and ect. she will get back/post you and have your name on the gate for your entrance Sat/Sun.
