What’s New at Walnut Creek Rifle Club?
The 100 Yard range will be open under the supervision of a Range Safety Officer. Schedule of open times will be posted on this website as well as on the main gates at the club. Due to inclement weather (thunderstorms, lightning, etc.) the rifle range may close during a scheduled open time, or may not open at all.
Please take the time to read the new revised range rules. EVERY member will be required to read and sign the rules and return them with your membership for renewal next year. Please review them now as they are already in effect. Anyone breaking these rules is subject to immediate membership termination.
WCRC Board of Directors
The year was 1934. The country had been recovering from the depression, and now that some folks had a little extra money in their pockets, Bud Anderson, Chuck McClymont, Carl Weinheimer, Joe Wiggins, Roy Stanbro, and Ralph McCrea decided to form a shooting club. Since the property they would use bordered Walnut Creek, they named it the Walnut Creek Rifle Club.
