This site is dedicated to all the members of the Burbank Muzzle Loaders club. There are members from when the club was located in the Saugus/Newhall area, to new members that have only known the Piru area. No matter how long or how short you have been a member, this is a site for you. Hopefully, it will bring in some new people who would like to know more about muzzle loading, and did not know where to ask questions or find a place to shoot close to them. This is a club full of wonderful and helpful men, and women!!

November 2017

November twelfth was a nice day for a thanksgiving themed shoot, and that’s what five shooters showed up to do. Really guys? Five? Well anyway, the match was sponsored by Jannu Lorentson, and the scores were as follows; Lee Bowman took first place, Skip Stokes second, and Sam Baseman third. There were many great prizes, including some of Jannu’s handmade goodies.

Next month’s match will be our annual Christmas shoot on December 10th, but we need to make the range presentable for our guests, so we are going to have a work party on November 29th. we don’t have a tremendous amount of work to do, but it needs to be done, so we’ll see you on the 29th.

We will also be having a trail walk on December 31st, which is new year’s eve. Don’t worry, you’ll be home in plenty of time to stay up till midnight and see the ball drop!

As many of you may know, we are trying to work things out with the new owners, to see if we are going to be able to stay at the range. As you know, our rent has been increased dramatically, causing us to have to increase daily range fees, and yearly dues. Last year, we tried to stay in the red by increasing the yearly dues to $75.00, and raising the daily range fee to $10.00 for members as well as non-members. It didn’t work, and we lost a considerable amount of money!! This year, according to last year’s membership and attendance numbers, we are raising the annual dues to $150.00, but keeping the daily fees at $10.00. This seems like a lot, but even with this increase, we are STILL shooting at prices considerably less than anywhere else around. Another factor in this equation, is attendance. We cannot make this work with the average attendance of the same six people every Wednesday and Sunday. Even if you don’t attend once every week, once or twice a month would help a lot! Also, match attendance has been very low over the past couple of years or so. We have twelve monthly matches a year, plus a few “extra-curricular” fifth Sunday trail walks. Each of the monthly competitions is sponsored by a different volunteer member who takes the time to run the match and furnish prizes out of his own pocket. Plenty of notice is given well ahead of each match. It would be great to see more than the same FIVE out of Thirty members in attendance!

This is your club! It has been in existence for 84 years. If we can’t improve attendance, along with the necessary monetary changes, you’re looking at a pretty quick end to what has been a great place to shoot for a very long time! Please consider coming out more often. Bring a friend.

Dues will be due at the first of the year. Please give your $150.00 check made out to Burbank Muzzleloaders to Tom Trevor at the range, or send it to;

That’s it for now, so until next time, See You At The Range!
