NRA / USAS Level 1 Rifle Coach Course

It's almost time for our NRA/USAS Level 1 Rifle Coach course at SCSSA.  Here are a few details for the upcoming course.

Shelby County Shooting Sports Association is the host and sponsor for the class.  Lisa Kelley will be our instructor.

- Location:      574 Elvira Rd

                       Helena, AL 35080

- Date:  Saturday, March 19 & Sunday, March  20

- Time:  8 AM to 5 PM each day

Lunch will be provided each day.  Drinks and snacks will be available at the range.

The range is indoors.  We have heat, but, only fans for cooling.  Please dress appropriately for whatever Alabama has in store for us those days.  Clothing should also be comfortable and appropriate for getting into the shooting positions. All equipment and course materials will be provided.  You should bring pen and paper for taking notes. Directions:  It is recommended to come from I-459 at exit 6 or from Helena.  Either way, you will need to come down Hwy 52 / Morgan Rd via exit 6 or through Helena.  If your GPS directs you through Hoover, Trace Crossings, or Hwy 150 - DO NOT GO THAT WAY.  Part of that route is now a gated neighborhood and part of the road is a LAKE.

If you need to get a hotel, there are hotels nearby on Hwy 150 in Hoover and Hwy 119 in Pelham, AL.  I recommend Hwy 119 area because any hotel there should be good and the route to the range is good.

We are looking forward to a great class.  Please let me know if you have any questions or need any special arrangements.

Sincerely,

Sam Richardson
