The Blue Hill Rifle and Pistol Club maintains an indoor small-bore / center-fire handgun range, an outdoor range for trap and two outdoor 100 yard ranges for rifle or pistol shooting. Our facilities are well maintained and family-use oriented in order to best support our members and our community. The Club supports the local community through marksmanship and safety training courses for various organizations including the 4-H and soon, the Boy Scouts Of America. The Club is proud of its tradition of community support and always looks for additional avenues to encourage safe and responsible firearms use.

May through October is our outdoor mowing/grounds maintenance season.
Here is our Blue Hill Rifle & Pistol Club Mowing Protocol
Procedures for closing the outdoor range for grounds maintenance are as follows:
1. Place three yellow closure flags on the sides of the three covered shooting stations.
2. Rope off the entrance road to the rifle range.
3. Place three foot by four -foot portable closure sign in the middle of the entrance road. The closure sign states ”RANGE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE. PLEASE SEE THE GROUNDSKEEPER.”
4. GROUNDSKEEPERS WILL BE WEARING BRIGHT YELLOW VESTS
Expectations for club members: Our Groundskeepers are volunteering their time and effort to keep our shooting range mowed and otherwise well kept. Their activities have PRIORITY over individual shooting activities. Give them the respect and courtesy they deserve.
Days and Times:
In general, the maintenance work will be performed on weekdays, Monday through Thursday, between the hours of 8AM and 3PM, subject to weather conditions. Closure dates for maintenance and mowing will posted on the club website. If you arrive and the range is flagged and closed, seek out the groundskeeper; he may be almost finished and will open up the range as soon as his duties are completed.

New England Invitational
From: Mary Ann Sheets April 17, 2013.
It is my distinct pleasure to invite you all to the 2013 New England Invitational at the Blue Hill Rifle & Pistol Club next Saturday, April 20. The Invitational is our championship match.
We will have separate shooter categories for Men, Ladies and Young Guns, with awards for the top three shooters in each class, certificates for all shooters, and every shooter gets a door prize! Over $200 in prizes and awards.
Registration the day of the shoot will begin at 8:30 on the 20th and run until 9:30 sharp! ALL SHOOTERS must be registered by 9:30! Registration fees are $25.00 for adults, $15.00 for Young Guns - lunch included. Lunch for non-shooters is $5.00. Anyone wishing to pre-register can email me at BHShootistSociety@yahoo.com, then pay the day of the shoot.
Anyone planning to arrive after 9:30 must pre-register with me before the day of the shoot.
At 9:30, registration closes and pairings for the first 3 rounds will be drawn up.
Anyone arriving to shoot after the pairings are finalized (who has not pre-registered) will automatically receive one X.
Anyone arriving to shoot (who has not pre-registered) after the Main Match has begun will have to sit out the round in progress and will receive an X for late arrival and an X for each round missed.
Anyone arriving to shoot (who did pre-register) after the Main Match has begun will have to sit out the round in progress, and will receive an X for each round missed.
To accommodate the expected large turnout, we have arranged to have an extended practice session on Friday, April 19, – 12:00 to 5:00pm. Then on Saturday morning, we will have an abbreviated practice starting at 8:30 - 9:30 while registration and round pairings are being prepared.
We have grown considerably over the last year, with many new shooters. It's exciting to think of all the great competition, at all levels, that this year's event will bring!
A special note to all the new shooters; Don't be intimidated by the prospect of their being faster shooters at this event. This is a great opportunity to pick up some pointers. I guarantee there will be shooters there in all ability levels. Also, this is the biggest event we have each year, so it's a good chance to socialize with some really great people!
If you have any questions regarding the New England Invitational, please call or email me. If you would like to pre-register, please contact me at BHShootistSociety@yahoo.com.
Hope to see you all there!
