February 11, 2008 - Archery Range Closure

The Trinity River Authority has started work on a new 72" sewer line along the levee next to the Archery range.  This work will require that the range be closed until it is completed sometime around the end of 2008.  The work will also require occasional closure of the shotgun ranges while they are working at the east end of the new line.

June 2, 2006 - Range Closures II

The Trinity River Authority sewer line work has been completed and all ranges will resume normal hours on most days.  The ranges will still be closed on Tuesday mornings while workers are watering the trees that were planted in the area north of the rifle range.

Work will also be taking place to complete the eyebrow on the top of the rifle range berm.  This will require occasional closing of the rifle and pistol ranges.

February 18, 2006 - Range Closures

Starting on Monday, February 27, the Trinity River Authority will be installing a sanitary sewer line across the north side of the club property.  All ranges will be closed while workers are present.  This work will only be conducted on weekdays.  The contractor is required to complete work at 4 PM each day so that the ranges can be reopened at 4:30 PM.  This work will take one to two months to complete.

December 6, 2005 - New rates for shotgun rounds

At it's annual meeting, the Shotgun Committee voted to change the rates for shotgun rounds effective January 1, 2006.  The new rates for a round of 25 targets will be $3.50 for members and $5.00 for guests.  Target costs have been increasing along with the price of oil (the targets are made from pitch).  The change will provide funds for continuing shotgun range improvements.

November 1, 2005 - GPSDC signs gas lease and creates new share class

The GPSDC Board of Directors recently signed a lease for gas rights on the club property.  This will not involve any physical drilling on the property itself.  As a result of the lease and the possible income it may provide, the Board decided to split the shares of the corporation into two classes. 

All new shares purchased from GPSDC after November 1, 2005 will be designated as Class B shares and will not receive any dividends that may become payable in the future due to proceeds from the mineral rights of the property.  These shares will continue to be sold for $750.

All shares that are not specifically designated as Class B shares will be considered to be Class A shares.  These shares will retain full rights to receive any future dividends that may be declared by the Board.  At this time, the Board does not expect any royalties from the lease to be sufficient to declare any dividends.  As of November 1, 2005 a total of 553 Class A shares have been issued. 

Shares that are transferred to another shareholder will retain their class status when they are reissued.

If you have any questions, please contact any of the Board of Directors for additional information.
