Safety Orientation Sessions and ID Badges: Please note that completion of the Safety Orientation class is required by all new members AND current members that have not taken the class. SMSC introduced member safety orientation sessions in June 2013 in compliance with the NRA recommendation that all ranges implement such safety programs for their members. The required one-hour orientation sessions will be held on the dates listed below. We will start promptly at the times below. Check in will start 30 minutes before. If you are late for the class you will not be given credit for attending the class. The Access badges will be printed before and after the class.

SMSC Range Orientation Classes
Registration starts @ 5:30pm and Class starts @ 6:00pm on the first Thursday of each month.
