  • 3Gun Match – August 31, 2014

    Our next match will be on Sunday August 31st in Medford at the White City Competition Range.  We are planning on 4 normal sized ( not Ironman prep ) stages for this match and approximately 125-150 rounds total. This should speed up the match and help us get finished early to get out of the heat!

    Prerequisite:

    • Have shot several USPSA pistol matches or USPSA 3Gun matches.

    To reserve a slot email Troy @ mrpcmultigun@gmail.com

    Thanks and we look forward to seeing all of you at the match!

  • New Website & Membership Program

    WEBSITE

    • The new website allows us to serve “Members Only” webpages that are not seen by others, such as our by-laws, monthly meeting minutes, etc.
      • It allows members to see their expiration date and update their profile (visible as soon as you login) with information such as phone number, email, address, etc as it changes as well as access club documents like the By-laws.
      • Members now have the ability to “OPT-IN” or “OPT-OUT” of club newsletters at anytime from their profile page.   The default is to BE INCLUDED on the newsletter list, so be sure to update your profile if you want to stop receiving the MRPC Newsletter that Dave McFadden puts out for us.
      • The forums are now “members only” for creating new posts but are open for all to read.
      • The monthly minutes are now online and a link located on your profile page.  Must be signed in to read.
      • The club bylaws are also online to members via their profile page.
    • Most questions are answered in the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) that are at the top of every page.  Please read through them for your answer before emailing / calling with the same question.

    If you have any questions or issues (AFTER READING THE FAQs) about the website, send them to:

    MEMBERSHIPS

    • Members can JOIN / RENEW for 1-3 years at a time now!!!
    • The new system has allowed the new Membership Director (Eric Yarborough) to process applications and membership renewals in less than a few days verses the previous weeks to months or maybe never under previous systems.
    • The club owes a great debt to Eric for the many hours he’s been putting into the job to catch up on a years backlog and he is always available to the members and potential members via a dedicated membership line he has installed at his office.  ph.541-879-1953
    • Members renewing this year should receive an email notice 30 days in advance as well as on their Membership Expiration date telling them to login and renew via their profile page so that their membership is not interrupted.
      • If a member does allow their dues to lapse, they will have an additional (6) months to login and renew before all data is deleted from the system.  Anyone procrastinating more than that will be treated as a new member as all our records will be purged after a year past expiration.
    • Door FOBs can now be programmed over the internet so if you renew when you get the email, your FOB should keep on working through the process.  You will still get a new Membership Card in the mail. 

    If you have any questions or issues (AFTER READING THE FAQs) about membership, send them to:

    However, you are invited to bring a guest up to 3 times. After that they should join the club!

  • Member Earl Hoppes has passed away.

    HOPPES,EARL

    Our friend and fellow shooter, Earl Emerson Hoppes, (87) passed away December 28th, 2013 in Central Point, Oregon.

    He was born in February 16, 1926 Salem, Oregon, and is survived by his wife, Greeta, daughter Diana of LaPine, OR., grandson James of Bend, OR, and a great granddaughter..Makayla

    He was an active member who often attended monthly meetings.

    David McFadden Notes:

    Personally, I didn’t know Earl very well, but I’ll always remember how he once wanted to show me his carry gun. Earl seemed to me to be a rather quite fellow, and for some reason I expected a small carry gun to be forthcoming. Instead Earl surprised me by pulling out a full size 45ACP. I could never figure out how he could carry such big gun so discreetly.

    the needs of these people to access and work in the range.
