One of the definitions of Arcadian is . We feel that marksmanship is exactly that.
MEMBERS and GUESTS. Please e-mail me to be added to our notification list for matches and other events. We had a guest book but it filled with page after page of "Guests" who were actually junk mail sites using our book to advertise. It would not have been so bad if they were shooting related businesses, but they were not.

My name is Mark Delmont and I am a Deputy Sheriff in Cuming County Nebraska. I am a competitive shooter, NRA member and strongly support second amendment issues.
I realized that in northeast Nebraska there is a shortage of safe places for serious shooters to shoot. In June of 2000 I borrowed a ton of money to buy land for a shooting club. I cannot afford to do this on my own so I formed ARCADIAN MARKSMANSHIP CLUB, LTD. By selling memberships to this club I hope to defray the cost enough so that I can provide a safe shooting environment for my self, my fellow officers and other serious shooting sports minded people.
This club is brand new so we don't have a calendar of events yet. When we get enough members who express interest in certain shooting events, then we can start to develop activities for them. So... if you join now you can be part of the planning process.
ALSO.... I am not a computer wizz so bear with me until we get one as a member of the club who can do this sort of thing.
THREE 25 YARD PISTOL RANGES
Each of these has a 15 foot impact berm and 10 foot side berms. You can be shooting in any one of them and someone else can be using the next one with out bothering or endangering each other.
Pistol range 1. This is the range to the far left. It has not been designated for any events yet.
Pistol range 2. This is the center range. Tom Adams is a member from Omaha, NE and he is interested in COWBOY ACTION shooting. He has placed six steel disc on this range at various locations so that he can practice with his single action revolver and lever action rifle etc. We have not built any props for that game, but if several members get together they could customize the area to suit their needs. To shoot the steel disk on this range you must use pistols or rifles in pistol calibers. There is also a 20 foot long plank set up to shoot falling plates. You can have side by side fun matches or use the lower part for 25 yard zeroing shooting at paper targets.
range 3. This is
primarily a police type quailfication range. The eight turning
tartgets are controled from the back of the range by pulling a
large lever that moves the targets from edge to face. A counter
wieght pulls them back to edge. This works well for some of the
rapid fire and bullseye pistol games as well as police
100 YARD/METER RANGE
This range also has a 15 ft impact berm and 10 foot side berms. It is 115 yds long and 96 ft wide. It is probably the most versitile range as it is good for all rifle and pistol calibers.
It currently has...
300 YARD/METER RANGE This range also has a 15 ft impact berm. It does not have side berms however the other range's side berms prevent any possible cross fire accidents.
It currently has...
No one may shoot on the range who has recently consumed any alcohol or is currently under the influence.
ANYONE can call a cease fire at any time they become aware of any unsafe condition.
No glass targets.
No targets that lay on the ground. All targets must have enough height so that misses strike the impact berms.
No inciderary or tracer ammunition. They are a grass fire hazard.
No one goes down range unless the firing line is clear.
No firearms will be loaded unless they are in use.
All firearms will be kept on safe, magazines out and the actions open when not in use.
All firearms will be carried with muzzles pointed up, down or towards the target area.

Member Ed Jonhson is a teacher at Wayne State College. One of his hobbies is aerial photography using a KITE !!! I can't imagine him dangling from a huge kite snapping pictures so I presume that he has a way to run a camera up and down the string. I have no idea how he aims it.
Anyway, this is a photo showing our 100 meter range. On the left you can see one of the three 25 meter pistol ranges and to the upper right you can see the impact berm of the 300. Please note the side berms that prevent anyone from shooting into the other ranges.

RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES
As a member of this club you have certain RIGHTS
You have the use of the range any day unless the range is closed for maintenance or there is a organized event in progress. Then, any shooting pit that is not closed or occupied by the event can be used. On a daily basis the shooting pits and firing points can be used "first come first serve". Several firing points on the same shooting pit can be used at the same time. Common sense dictates that all the shooters will wait to go change or check targets at the same or when it is safe to do so. Courtesy is guild line
Your membership covers one person. Our insurance plan is based on a "price per person". If you have additional family members who wish to use the range, they can be added to your membership for $15.00 each. You may add your spouse or any of your children age 17 and under. They will be added by name to our insurance policy.
You may bring a non-shooting guest any time. You can bring a shooting guest too but that guest may only shoot one day in a year and he or she is totally your responsibility. If they enjoy the facility, they may apply for membership.
Our insurance coverage is primarily for activities on the range. If you participate in matches at other locations, it may extend to that event as well if you or your team are representing our club. Please notify us in advance and we can possibly include your other matches on our insurance at no additional cost to you.
As a member of this club you have certain RESONIBILITIES
SAFETY. If you see a unsafe act or condition, do what you can to correct it. On the spot corrections are common and experienced shooters accept them gratefully and give them without ridicule. If a more serious condition occurs, remember that ANYONE CAN CALL A CEASE FIRE AT ANY TIME. If you hear a cease fire from your shooting pit or any other shooting pit, repeat the warning to all shooters until everyone has stopped. You may resume after the unsafe condition is corrected.
RUBBISH. Please take your waist paper, used targets and trash with you. Spent boxer primed brass cartridges may be left on the range but please pick up shotgun, Berdan primed and other large non reloadable casings. If you want your brass or any other brass left by others, you are encouraged to take it.
FIRES. Please make sure any camp fires or barbeque grills are extigwuished before you leave.
TRESPASSERS. This is your range because you
paid for the privilege to use it. If you see other non-members
using it, report them to the owner of the property or board of
directors. You may ask them to leave but do not attempt to force
them to do so.
