Rental Application

Unfortunately, Chabot Gun Club’s lease was not renewed by the East Bay Regional Park District and the marksmanship range is now permanently closed. We thank all of our tens of thousands of patrons for your support for more than fifty years at this important facility. There are no plans to open up at another location at this time, although we still are open to suggestions.

Application for Range Rental and Use Form RU #_______________ (office will assign)

Chabot Gun Club, Inc. presently has 5 (five) ranges for rental to governmental agencies, private organizations, clubs and groups. Distances vary from point blank range to 200 meters. Classrooms are also available. Each range may be rented by the day or half-day. Gates open at 0800 hours, shooting exercises may be conducted from 0900 to 1700 hours and gates close at 1800 hours. Although rental space is generally available five (5) days per week with occasional weekends, governmental and security agencies are advised that Chabot Gun Club is not open to the general public on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, thus facilitating the privacy often needed for specialized training. Since the Club is located in the wooded hills between Castro Valley and Oakland, the locale is conducive to most forms of physical activity, from basic calisthenics to helicopter insertion techniques.

Standard rates per range for are  $300 per day or  $150 per half-day. Due to tort requirements, federal rates are $350.00 per day. If five (5) or more days are scheduled in a calendar year, a ten (10) percent discount will be applied. A multi-purpose room, suitable for up to 30 persons is available for  $100 per day with the rental of a shooting range. A smaller classroom, accommodating up to 10 persons is available for $50.00 per day with a range rental. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays, the common areas are available for non-firing training provided that such activities do not interfere with the maintenance staff, other range users nor pose any safety hazards. On weekends, because space is so scare, ranges booked are locked in at two months and will be billed whether used or not.

Prerequisites for scheduling range time and requirements for on-site conduct are listed on the form “Policy on Range Rentals”. Applications will be reviewed by Chabot Gun Club management to insure that proposed rentals conform to the overall mission of the Club and do not interfere with existing Club responsibilities, legal requirement and/or Club activities.

Failure to abide by Chabot Gun Club, Inc. or East Bay Regional Park District policies may result in suspension of range access. We reserve the right to refuse rental or service to anyone.
