The range facility affords a 9-position, covered, concrete firing line with shooting benches. Firearms may
be fired at distances varying from 7-yards to 100-yards by moving the target holders. Shooters need to
plan to provide their own targets and staplers. No exploding, tracer or any other incendiary ammunition or
target devices are allowed at any time at the Chatuge Gun Club range. No open flames or situations that
might cause a fire are allowed.
The range facilities are available for use by Chatuge Gun Club members during any daylight hours and is
accessible by a key issued upon joining the club at a regularly scheduled monthly meeting; paying the dues
as described in the “Dues Policies” link on this website; and signing an agreement with the club to
understand and obey ALL range rules as set forth by the Chatuge Gun Club. Membership may be obtained
by attending a regular monthly meeting held on the third Tuesday of each month at the Senior Center in
Hiawassee Georgia at 7 P.M.
The club presents “friendly” competition in various shooting sports almost on a weekly basis and these
competitions are open to anyone wishing to participate as long as basic range safety rules are followed.
Reference the calendar link on this website for match dates and times. These matches vary and attempt to
provide a forum of entertainment to satisfy almost all types of firearms from muzzle loading to semi-auto
loaders. If you are not familiar with some of the matches listed, please click on the “Matches” navigation bar
for details. Most events are offered at no cost to the shooter either member or non-member however, in
some cases a small fee is charged to cover the cost of consumables such as targets at trap matches etc.
The Chatuge Gun Club has over 25 Certified NRA Instructors within its membership. These dedicated
Trainers can afford ongoing opportunities for novice as well as experienced shooters to further their
knowledge and skills within the various shooting disciplines. Our Range Officer as well as any of the Club
Officers can guide you to the particular training you desire.
We also have an Airgun Program during the cooler winter months. We present “clinics” as well as scored
matches for both 10 meter air rifle and air pistol competition. Click on the “Airgun Program” navigation bar
for more details.
Except for days when organized matches are conducted, there is no Range Officer present. Members must
maintain safe range procedures by following range rules as posted.

them or forever hold your peace!!
• Since the Club rules state that keys are issued “only” at the
regular Club meetings and “each member will attend at least one (1)
meeting a year”, why not come to this one and get it all done at once
and maybe win something at the same time? Of course, you should be
coming to all the meetings anyhow!
• There will not be a dinner this year at the Annual Meeting but in
its place we will have a catered, Club Picnic on 14 June 2014. The
whole family will be invited as usual. It will be held at the Georgia
Experiment Station Pavilion, HWY 129 S., Blairsville, GA. (The location
is ½ mile south of the Intersection of Town Creek School Road, the
road to Alexander’s Store, and US 129 on the left at the drive just past
the stone sign).

at this gathering. Keep up with the website for further details.
