Here’s an interesting tidbit—I don’t know how many people are paid members but our weekly news updates go to about 180 email addresses!  Let’s get more people out to the range and more coming to our meetings to help us promote our club.

Chairman/President  Ron Frey

CFO/Treasurer  Gary Parsons

Secretary  Katie Frey

Newsletter  Betsy Parsons


We just recently got our paperwork finished to become a legally recognized non-profit organization under California law.  This won’t change our fun shoots or general way of conducting business but it protects our Board Members and our club in IRS matters.


 Make a note to save the date!  The Ridgecrest Friends of the NRA dinner will be May 8. A special surprise display will be featured.  Live auction, silent auction, kids activities, raffles.  We sell out every year so look for ticket information when available.


Whiskey Flats Days at Kernville over President’s weekend.  California Deer Assoc. will have a booth.  They are great supporters for wildlife in our area.  They will be having a fund raiser dinner on March 6 in Lake Isabella.  Call Frey’s Gun Shop for details on tickets.
