Ladies and Gentlemen of Red Brush
As Indiana has progressed to stage 5 in reopening, we must be cognizant that daily totals of positive test continue to rise in Vanderburgh County. Even though an increase of 40-70 positive cases per day may appear insignificant to some, it is not. Given these figures, it translates to 280-490 positive cases weekly. As previously stated in an earlier alert, once we leave home we run the risk of bringing this insidious virus back to our families. Therefore, I am strongly encouraging anyone attending the monthly meeting to wear a mask and to social distance where possible.
Gentlemen, the Red Brush Board of Directors, in accordance to the Governor of Indiana’s reopening steps, has agreed to allow previously scheduled matches to resume beginning Sunday, May 31, 2020.
In regards to CDC guidelines, the BOD has established the following protocols for these events:
- On line registration with waiver of liability, course of fire, and other paper documents to
be transmitted electronically.
- Squads of ten or less.
- Squad leaders to perform safety briefings.
- Social distancing required. (Exception: parents should remain close to their children monitoring
for safe firearm handling.)
- Mask are to be encouraged.
- Scoring tablets, timers to be sanitized after each use.
Match Directors are to make call on enforcement of these protocols.
Red Brush Rifle Range is a full-featured rifle range in Southern Indiana, just east of Evansville.
The range consists of a 500 yard rifle bay, a 375 yard rifle bay, a 100 yard rifle/pistol bay, and 9 additional pistol bays (with ranges of 50-100 yards)
The hours for firearms usage is: 6:00 AM through 10:30 PM Sunday through Thursday and 6:00 AM through 12:00 AM Friday and Saturday.
We are host to numerous competitive shooting events, including Precision Rifle Challange (PRS), IDPA, Steel Challenge, Bowling Pin, Sub-Gun, Military Rifle Match, AR-15 Match, Appleseed, and more. While we don’t have formal trap or skeet setups, members are free to bring their own traps and practice their shotgun skills.
While visitors are welcome at sanctioned shooting events, unlimited access to the range requires club membership.
