Fylde Coast Muzzle Loaders Society - Club News

ALTCAR CANCELLED 25TH SEPTEMBER....

The Altcar shoot scheduled for 25th September has been cancelled due to military/cadet activities taking place that weekend.


WE ARE A MUZZLE-LOADING CLUB....

All members (and prospective members) are reminded our rules state that we are primarily a muzzle-loading organisation and every member holding a FAC should, therefore, own at least one bona-fide black-powder weapon. If you obtain your FAC as a result of becoming a member of the FCMLS, your first acquisition must be a black-powder weapon.


FIREARMS COATINGS....

One of our members is now providing firearms coating services full-time - Cerakote, blacking, hydrographics - contact the Secretary for details.


LEM MOULDS ARE BACK....

LEM bullet moulds are once again available. Using the original tooling, they are now being manufactured by the son of the original maker.


KEEP WEETON TIDY....

Please pick up whatever rubbish you can and take it away with you. And if you are raking the sand, please push it UPWARDS - it's a lot harder but if you don't it all ends in a heap at the bottom. The slope should match the white lines at each side of the backstop. Please use the path on the right-hand side of the range when walking down to the targets.

Do your bit - it isn't someone else's job to tidy up after you!


SAFETY....

All probationary and new members (and the old ones too, if it comes to that) are strongly advised to have a good read of the safety guidelines.


GOING TO ALTCAR?....

If you are going to attend an Altcar shoot, a prior phone call to either Alan W, or John C would be appreciated - on days when the weather isn't good, the shoot may be cancelled and it would save a wasted journey if we knew who intended going and could pass the news around.


ALTCAR PASSES AND ENTRANCE PROCEDURES....

When entering the Altcar range complex, all vehicles must stop in the parking area, and the driver must present his pass, and those of his passengers, at the gatehouse.

Altcar Range Office will no longer renew any passes that have expired, so you must get it renewed BEFORE it runs out. You will need two photographs, with your name, address and the name of the club written on the back.

If your pass is due to expire before you can get to Altcar, post it to Range Control (or the FCMLS Secretary) with your two photos (name, address and club name on the back of one), along with a covering letter, and they should prepare a new pass and hold it at Range Control until your next visit. Obviously, don't abuse this system by asking for a pass and then not picking it up for months.

If you leave the club, or if you have an expired Altcar pass, please cut it in two and return the pieces to Range Control at Altcar.
