Effective May 28, 2020 and will remain in effect until further notice.
Sunday noon – 7 PM
Monday/Tuesday 10 AM – 7 PM
Wednesday – closed
Thursday/Friday/Saturday 10 AM – 7 PM
Members who have a temperature or exhibiting any symptoms shall refrain from using the ISA facilities for the duration. Members who are in isolation for any reason shall refrain also.
Masks or face shields are required at all times unless you are at the firing line.
Social distancing, 6 feet separation is required at all times except for those individuals who live together.
The clubhouse will remain closed. The outdoor port-a-john will be available.
You will need to log in and out with the officer or authorized individual on duty using your membership identification card.
Due to the limit of individuals permitted on the property, there will be a 2 hour limit, if there are others waiting to use the facilities.
ISA will disinfect at regular intervals. ISA will provide suitable sprays for this use. This includes items such as tables, chairs, shooting benches, shooting stands, etc. Members may also bring their own disinfectant wipes to use to help in the mitigation efforts.
Essential information shall be dissipated as much as possible by web page, monthly newsletter, or special email distribution. All members shall be encouraged to allow email communication.
Members are expected to adhere to these special requirements. If for some reason a member does not adhere and will not comply when reminded by an officer of the club or is cited by an inspection by authorized state or local officials, that member shall face disciplinary action according to our Bylaws.
These are the requirements that must be adhered to maintain the future of our club.
Hopefully these requirements will be required for a short time.
Thank you for complying.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission recently launched its new podcast, “Call of the Outdoors,” a series of episodes focused on wildlife, hunting, habitat and conservation across the Keystone State. The podcast is hosted by Game Commission Marketing Director and world turkey calling champion Matt Morrett.
“We are really excited and proud to share this podcast with people who love Pennsylvania wildlife as much as we do at the Game Commission,” said Morrett. “Listeners will get an inside look into how wildlife is managed here in Penn’s Woods and hopefully gain a new sense of knowledge and pride in their state wildlife agency.”
The first three episodes, being released in conjunction with Pennsylvania’s statewide spring gobbler season, feature a few well-known turkey hunters: Country Music Superstar Blake Shelton, “Bone Collector” Founder Michael Waddell and Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans.
Please call the North Huntingdon Police (724) 863-8800) to report shooting at the slate dump (West of our ranges beside RR tracks). We need you to help us record when this happens on the official documentation at the Police Department.
