Please see the pictures below. As you can see, things are taking shape nicely. With the added time, this is going to look great for opening next week.
The countdown is on! We’re very excited to be almost two weeks away from opening. The finishes are going into the club this week and next. As of today, the facade is almost done, the carpet and tile is mostly complete, and the lockers have arrived and will be installed next week.
Please RSVP for the opening events to help us plan for how many people are coming. We appreciate your help in making this go smoothly. You can register for the opening events here: http://www.westonshootersclub.com/events/.
Here are some pictures of the club walls getting closed in. Things are progressing on schedule and it’s really starting to shape up as the walls get closed. Click on the images below to open the gallery.
We wanted to share some pictures of the HVAC installation process. More interior shots coming tomorrow. This week the concrete pad was poured, the huge blower units were delivered by crane truck and installed. They are being hooked up to duct work as the week progresses.
We have made a lot of progress on club construction, but we have also had some additional delays that were out of our control. We will make an announcement next Wednesday 7/16 following a meeting on Tuesday with the building owner and the manager from our construction company.
We are making additional improvements to the property. For example, below is a rendering of what the building exterior will look like.
We have made great progress on the range itself. Over the past few weeks, all of the range equipment has been delivered and installed. Some pictures of that process are included below. Click on the thumbnails to see the full-size gallery.
When we announce the opening date next week, we will also schedule some days for member orientation and tours of the facility, which will happen before the official opening. Thank you for bearing with us through the construction delays. We are sure that you will be happy with the finished product.
It’s picture day! A few construction pictures shared below. Click on the thumbnails for the full gallery.
We have some exciting new renderings of the lounge area from our designer that we wanted to share. Make sure you click on the images to see the full-size image. We hope you like what you see!
The first truck of range equipment arrived yesterday! Another truck with the backstop arrives later this week, and our consultant from the range company will be in town next week to supervise the installation. Very exciting stuff!
The other progress is mainly electrical. As you can see, the electricians are hard at work. We’ve also had the alarm company do their pre-wiring, and we’ve pulled most of the data cabling for wifi, security cameras, TVs, etc.
Progress continues with construction. At this point, they are working at full speed on the range HVAC. Below, you can see pictures of the supply ducts that are being built and installed over the firing line. These ducts will break out a very large supply duct and bring the air to the back of the firing line. This coming week, all of the electrical and data is going in, then we’ll close up the walls and work on finishes.
We sent an email to everyone who has applied for membership a couple weeks ago. If you applied on or before May 13th (when we were offering a discount), you must attend one of the scheduled new member meetings in June to obtain the discount. Please visit the link you were emailed to register.
We look forward to seeing you all at the club soon!
Sorry for the long delay between posts. A lot of construction has been done, such as HVAC installation, plumbing,and electrical, but none of that makes for exciting pictures. Unfortunately, we have run into one big delay that will push us from our previously-expected May opening to the end of June or first week in July. There was a complication removing some equipment on the site that was located outside the building where the range HVAC units will be located. This set off a chain reaction of delay, since getting the range HVAC completed is required before the range equipment can be installed and before interior walls can be completed. Things are on track again, and we don’t anticipate further delays.
On the membership front, we’ve been overwhelmed with the response, and we thank you all for your support. We have met with a lot of new members and have scheduled two more meetings for early June. As of today, we are discontinuing the early signup discount. If you have already applied, you will still be given the discount, but you need to make it to one of the currently scheduled new member meetings. If you haven’t registered for a meeting yet, please do so. You should have the link in emails we’ve sent you. If not, please email us.
As we have discussed with the new members that we’ve met, we will be capping membership initially so we can analyze usage. Our goal is that nobody should have to wait for a lane. With the huge response we’ve seen, we encourage you to apply soon if you are considering membership. At our current pace, we anticipate filling our initial membership slots by the time we open or perhaps shortly thereafter.
Thanks again, and please contact us if you have any questions or feedback.
