Also late but for your information.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Governors order on limited number of persons in an area, GOSC has decided not to hold the Annual Meeting this year. We will continue to monitor the situation and if important information is received we will post it on this website. Thanks for your cooperation.


Our Hosting company had changed over to a new updated server. This caused our webpage to revert to an older version. We were not able to update the information until now. We will be going through the information piece by piece to determine its correct. We ask that you bear with us while we go through this process. Remember it is 2020!


The NRA Range Development & Operations Conference in Charleston, SC has been rescheduled due to COVID-19 outbreak.The New Dates are March 19-21, 2021.



Important news provided by Herb Lanford, Member, NRA Board of Directors.

For those who were planning to attend the NRA Annual Meeting in Nashville in April, the following public statement was released today (March 12, 2020). Unfortunate, but read the statement and you will have the facts and the information currently available to adjust your plans.

With our 149th Annual Meeting scheduled for next month in Nashville, we realize many NRA members and meeting guests have questions about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the potential impact on our convention.

We have been closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Tennessee Department of Health.  In fact, earlier today, a state of emergency was declared in Tennessee.  

Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s NRA Annual Meeting, planned for April 16 – 19 in Nashville. This applies to all events and scheduled programs, including the NRA-ILA Forum. We sincerely regret the need for this action, particularly for our many loyal members who join us for this annual celebration of the NRA and our constitutional freedoms.  Details regarding the NRA Member’s Meeting will be forthcoming.

Under the direction of NRA President Carolyn Meadows, the NRA Board of Directors is working with the Office of the Secretary in relation to board elections, meetings, and the like.  

Please know that we did not reach this decision lightly. We were ultimately guided by our responsibility to help ensure the safety and well-being of our NRA members, guests, and surrounding community.  

Please coordinate directly with any hotels, airlines or others who have assisted with your travel arrangements. Most companies have announced plans to accommodate travelers dealing with event cancellations.  

 Please visit   or for additional news and information regarding NRA activities. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
