    • The Range at Illinois State Rifle Association (Bonfield, IL)

    I'm very pleased to announce our first year anniversary celebration, we formed in June just one year ago. In seeking a venue for us to gather, the Illinois State Rifle Association has generously gifted us the use of their picnic pavilion plus a few rifle and pistol stations for us to use for the day. I'm personally very excited to shoot at an outdoor range while having a place to gather, chat, and snack on the dishes to pass that y'all will be bringing! 

    Once I get responses with a general idea for attendance, the follow-up emails will include more details for attendees and their guests. 

    Things I know right now: 

    • Pot-Luck Picnic - everyone bring a dish to pass. There will be cake, so no desserts are needed
    • Picnic Pavilion is a covered area, so rain or shine we will gather
    • Bring your rifles, bring your pistols, stations for both will be reserved
    • Bring your ammunition - there is NO AVAILABILITY to purchase any at the range
    • Guests are welcome, up to 2 per member, they need to be registered through this event for the LGC event waiver
    • Range sign-in and range waiver will also be required for members and their guests

    Anyone who can bring party supplies such as larger coolers or water/beverage dispensers, or wants to help coordinate supplies, please let me know - I'm bad at organizing parties and WILL forget stuff without help! We'll likely need stuff like charcoal, ice, cups, plates, utensils, etc, etc. We'll figure that out.

    Please use the LGC Forum - Illinois Chapter subforum for any discussion, questions, suggestions, volunteering of help/supplies. It will be FAR EASIER to discuss there than to try to email chain back and forth. Thank you!

    • 01 Jul 2019
    • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church “Taborspace,” 5441 SE Belmont, Portland

    We will be having a non-Range meetup in July for socializing, a little club business and feedback, and a presentation by Brett Matthews on “Prepping 101”. Brett runs a large online prepper group and has been doing it a long time, so he’s a good source of information. The #15 bus stops right there on Belmont. 

    The reserved room holds up to 20 people, so attendance is capped at 20 this time. If this goes well we may do this regularly, alternating with our every other month range days in Portland. Bring ideas for future presentations you’d like to see.
