There is definitely an in-between. Logs and ROs are a pain in the ass and not needed, but I'm not at all opposed to a few cameras so that they have a method of investigation and can kick out the a**h***s.The reality is that you will always have a few people who have no respect for club property. So the question is whether you think it's better to a) turn the club into a police state with cameras, sign-in sheets, etc (what's next, ROs?), or b) if it's better to just deal with occasional damage and trash but keep the club "free".
I'm solidly in camp (b) - the club has a reputation for not having a ton of overbearing rules. Then again I'm not the one cleaning up (although I volunteer my time in other ways every year).
The gate camera was added after vandalism to the gate which was pretty much certainly from an outside agitator.I'm pretty sure that cameras have been used at the club in the past, although I believe there aren't any permanent installations (except for the one at the gate). I could be wrong.
good eyes. there are a handful of game cams around he club, used by certain range chairs where they see benefit.Isn't there a game camera at the back 40 range, mounted to the one of the support poles for the roof thingy? Maybe it is only used for animal monitoring?
Thank you for helping keep our club better than you found itJust picked up 10+ blown up soda bottles at the 100yd. By the looks of it, the person who left this trash is a bad shot. Lots of .223 sized holes grazing these bottles. Be better and clean your trash up, especially if you can’t shoot worth a damn.
There are more sophisticated cameras elsewhere. After a particular incident, I was contacted based on the gate camera/logs. I had noticed what happened but there was no contact information to tell anyone. Cameras were added and there is now a sign indicating that if you see anything, you should report it immediately.
Stay hydrated. Usually it's not a big damned deal,
Choices have consequences.
This isn't rocket surgery; it doesn't require geometric logic.Unless only a single person entered during the whole day, the log won't tell you anything.
It had better not happen again.And what happens if the board calls whoever was caught on camera shooting the chains and that person says "sorry, I was sighting in my rifle and it shot high"? Or "it was already broken when I got there"?
'the right to shoot down chains shall not be infringed'? is that the point you`re making?And what happens if the board calls whoever was caught on camera shooting the chains and that person says "sorry, I was sighting in my rifle and it shot high"? Or "it was already broken when I got there"?
Based on what I saw, a one time miss is OK, it happens. But if you do it more than once, it's clear there is intent to cause damage. From what I saw, it wasn't just a one time miss, there were multiple shots way off target. Either the person did it on purpose, or there was a major malfunction. This was not at the 100 yard range.And what happens if the board calls whoever was caught on camera shooting the chains and that person says "sorry, I was sighting in my rifle and it shot high"? Or "it was already broken when I got there"?
it is more than clear.Based on what I saw, a one time miss is OK, it happens. But if you do it more than once, it's clear
At first I was assuming it was someone who’s a shitty shot. But the fact that there’s no hits further down the chain has me thinking otherwiseit is more than clear.
red circles - it was all done in one day, after i secured the plate back - upper links had no dings yet. it has to be one or two individuals only as it does not happen all the time, and does not happen during winter.
also note how chain mid section has no dings at all. @ssholes.
