The Native Sons
of the Golden West is a fraternal order of native born Californians, founded in
1875 for the purpose of preserving California’s unique history. In addition to putting up historical marker
plaques all around the state, some of their noteworthy endeavors include the
preservation of Sutter’s Fort (Sacramento), the Custom House (Monterey) and
Historic Columbia (Columbia). They have
also had an important hand in the preservation of the Franciscan missions and
the establishment of Discovery of Gold State Historic Park (Coloma). The James Marshall monument, erected by the
Native Sons in Coloma, is the first such monument in California. Today, through their Historical Preservation
Foundation, they are engaged in efforts to preserve pioneer cemeteries, the
tailing wheels in Jackson and many other projects.
The Native Sons
Charitable Foundation annually contributes approximately $100,000 to hospitals
in California that treat children with cleft-palate and other forms of
cranio-facial anomalies. For more
information on the organization, visit www.NSGW.org.
January 31st, the Santa Lucia Sportsmen’s Association Board of
Directors had their annual installation dinner at the club house. The Native Sons of the Golden West
volunteered to BBQ for the event and the mouth-watering results of their efforts
were enjoyed by all in attendance.

At the end of the year we are going to have a
drawing for a free Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical Pistol in 45 ACP. It comes
with ambi safety, skeletonized hammer and trigger with beavertail safety. This
is a great shooter and a good addition to anyone’s 1911 collection. To enter
the drawing all you have to do is donate some time working at the rifle and
pistol ranges as a range host. Executive officer Ricky Fernandez is working out
the details and he will have a schedule set up and a sign in sheets. The more
time you donate the more chances you will have to win!

Attention all Members!
This notice is a reminder to all members that firearm and range safety needs to be your top priority whenever you are on-site at the Club property. This applies to users of all ranges, including rifle, pistol, trap, skeet and archery. All safe weapons handling rules are strictly enforced to prevent injury to all members, guests and to prevent damage to club and personal property.
This requires that all shooters handle their weapons safely, loading only at the appropriate time, and paying attention to what is happening around them, on adjacent or nearby ranges, in open areas along the hillsides and other activities that are being conducted by members, neighbors, maintenance workers and law enforcement personnel. The berms around the ranges are intended to help minimize and reduce safety hazards and risks, but cannot be taken as a substitute for common sense and strict adherence to the safety rules.
If you see anyone violating these rules, please take detailed notes with as much information as possible and report to the Board. If an emergency or hazardous condition exists that you are not able to safely correct, contact a Board Member at the phone numbers listed on the gate. The SLSA has maintained an excellent safety record and it is everyone's responsibility to ensure it continues.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) made a video on ‘Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette’. We encourage all members to take a look at the video. Remember, firearms safety depends on you.
