You may have seen the Kitsap Sun Article which was about KRRC’s legal battle but it also mentions this exchange. If you’re interested the comments are made at about 01:38 into the meeting, but the gist of it is that Commissioner Wolfe and Marcus Carter very briefly, and informally, mentioned something about ‘talks’ and also hoped for ‘compromise’ in getting KRRC reopened.

Gate Card Training Classes

Updated August 21, 2015


The last new member orientation and gate card training class for 2015 will be held on September 5 at 2:00 PM in the club house. The next class will be scheduled some time in the May to June time frame in 2016.


For background, if you want to qualify for an afterhours gate card you need this class. There is a $5 charge for the card. If you are a new member and would like an overview of club rules and how the rifle and pistol ranges operate, you probably want to attend. You only need to take one class, they are one session and will start in the club house and conclude on the ranges. Eye and ear protection are required for the range tour.


To get on the waiting list send an e-mail to with the subject line gate card waiting list. Include your contact information and membership number.
