Second Knoll Target Range Competition/Training Bay Reservation System

There are four competition/training bays located on the East side of the Second Knoll Target Range which may be utilized by reservation only. Reservations are managed by the Bay Reservation and Use Committee (Baywatch). The range is currently open to the public Saturdays through Mondays but the bays are available for reservations seven days a week 8am-5pm and arrangements may be made by contacting the Baywatch committee.   Please note that NO training will be allowed on the public (100 yard) range when it is open to the public. All pistol training is to take place in the training bays.  Rifle training may take place on the 100 yard range by special arraignment.

WMSA Clubs or Groups

Any WMSA discipline club or group may reserve the bays as long as an approved RSO is present.  WMSA RSO’s, as well as discipline specific RSO’s – SASS, IPSC, etc. are approved for their disciplines only.  For WMSA discipline clubs or groups to reserve bays, first view the reservation schedule for bay availability then email the committee with your requested bay(s) and date(s).

Commercial Entities

Commercial entities may also request bay space. To be approved by the Baywatch Committee, you must provide:

Some form of Nationally Recognized training creds: NRA, POST, Military (as a small arms instructor), or similar (Scouting USA, USPSA, SASS, IDPA, and other National groups) or a Second Knoll RSO present during the entire time a bay is in use. Proof of insurance that covers WMSA, G&F, and USFS.

Commercial bay rental fee is $40 all day (8am-5pm) or $20 half day (8am-12:30pm OR 12:30PM-5pm).  All shooters must sign in at the range bay area using the WMSA Daily Shooters Log, sign WMSA range waivers and pay regular daily shooter fees before shooting.

To reserve bay(s) first view the reservation schedule for bay availability, then download the Commercial Bay Use Request form. Follow form instructions. 

Additional Info

The goal of the Baywatch committee is to balance the use of the bays by making available a number of bays not only for WMSA clubs and groups recurring monthly use but also to meet the needs of others wanting to rent a bay or bays for the day.

Rules for reserving bays

A club or group may submit a request to Baywatch for a maximum of 3 bays per day on a recurring monthly basis and may also request an additional bay if the desired bay is not being utilized, with the understanding that if the bay is ever needed by anyone else the committee may reassign the bay after notifying the using group at least 10 days in advance (the earlier the better) so they can make adjustments to their needs. If the reassignment of the extra bay is only temporary the bay reverts back to the group with the recurring reservations.

To help understand bay availability, bays are marked with colored blocks on the calendar in four ways;

 Bay is scheduled for recurring monthly use showing club color

 Bay is reserved but it can be reassigned to others if necessary

 Bay is not currently used and is available

 Closed until further notice, DO NOT ENTER

Setting up bays for use

Reserving a bay or bays in order to set up stages for upcoming matches will not be allowed if the “set up” bays would preclude others from using that bay or bays.

The following rules must be met for setting up stages early:

  1. Setting up on a Friday in an un-reserved bay for a Saturday or Sunday match is allowed if the setup stage on Friday will not create any possibility of a hazard to anyone or interfere with any other range functions such as bay maintenance.
  2. Setting up on a Saturday for a Sunday match is allowed after checking with Baywatch to insure no one has a last minute morning or afternoon reservation in the bay where the staging is desired.

Caution: An empty bay is not always what it appears to be. Another group could have reserved the bay and the calendar was not updated and published in time or reserved for a late morning or afternoon match so if in doubt contact Baywatch.  

Any group canceling a reservation (except for inclement weather) without notifying the committee may result in a fine if it causes a hardship or an inconvenience for any other groups who could have used the vacant bay(s).

We take pride in our clean range and want to keep it that way so after each use; bays must be cleaned of all visible  brass, live ammunition, shotgun wads, broken wood target stands, and visibly excessive broken clay targets. Cinders should be raked, making a presentable bay for the next users.
