The Clatskanie Rifle & Pistol Club is an Oregon non-profit corporation that was founded in 1948.
The purpose of the Club shall be to promote the safe and ethical use of firearms for hunting, competition, and sport; to promote the proper use of our game and fish resources through education of its’ members and the public; to provide a place for the above efforts and to foster good relations among sportspersons and the community at large.
Our bylaws state “It shall be the purpose of this club to maintain a shooting range open to the public without fee, and to promote instruction of the public in the safe and ethical use of firearms for hunting, sports, and personal and public defense.”
CRPC maintains an outdoor rifle and pistol range that is open to the public on most weekends, provided :
- There are no competitive, training, private events or construction/maintenance that would preclude safe operation of the range, and
- Participants and attendees abide by the Terms and Conditions of range use.
The Oregon Court of Appeals has issued an Order Granting a Temporary Stay which effectively overturns the ruling issued on Columbia County Circuit Court in August of 2015.
Consequently, the Board of Directors is Thomas Welch, Sam Patrick, Paul Winarz, Ed Davis, and Dave McKee.
THE ANNUAL MEETING SCHEDULED FOR MAY 16, 2015 IS CANCELLED.
We will be posting updates soon, and thank you for your understanding.
Good news! The paving is complete and the new drain system for the driveway is finally installed. Hopefully this improvement will make accessing the facility easier for everyone. All ranges are back in service to the members as of Thursday, June 13th; however, access must be restricted to walk-in traffic only while the cement cures. Please do not park or drive on the pavement prior to Saturday June 15th.
Photos of the driveway and drain system are on our Facebook page!
