2018 Membership Renewals

The WSC 2018 membership renewal drive is now underway. Dues are payable, and were due by the end of January 2018. Dues rates have increased from 2017: $150/$75 member/spouse, senior/senior-spouse: $75/$37.50.

Access cards are being disabled for members whose dues have not been paid by the end of February unless prior arrangements for payment had already been made with the Membership Secretary. Only members in good standing will have access to club facilities after that date. In particular, the new clubhouse WiFi/members-only web page password has been EMailed to paid-up members on Wednesday, March 7th.

A late payment fee of $25.00 will be assessed on dues not received by February 28th. Membership will be terminated for any member whose dues remain unpaid by June 30th, and can only be restored by the full interview process (and payment of initiation fees).

Outdoor Range Access Road Closed

To all Members,

Due to the frequent thaw and freeze cycles, the roads and parking areas at the WSC are in very poor shape. For the time being, no vehicles can be driven past the pond to the outdoor ranges. The outdoor ranges remain open, but members will have to park at the center field and walk. Walk with care – the area is very unstable. Also, Sunday’s usual Sporting Clays event is canceled for February 25th.

The parking area on the far side of the Trap clubhouse is also in bad shape, so cars must park on the near side or beside the containers.

The roads must be allowed to dry out. We are working as fast as possible to improve the situation. As soon as things dry out a bit, access will be restored.

Save the date! Noted gun instructor Len Segal presents an all-day class for laymen.

A 6+ hour exploration of Massachusetts gun laws including ample time for your questions and answers. (NOTE: This is NOT the same material you received in a Basic Firearms Class, it is a lot more comprehensive than that).

We are taking registrations to ensure that we don’t exceed the 75-student attendance cap. At least 28 students have already registered with more on the way, so if you are going to attend, send the Webmaster your name, town, EMail, phone, WSC membership status, and whether you grant Len permission to retain your info for remedial messages (not for marketing).

This class exposes the rumors and presents the facts:
