**Commemorative Bricks Sales Start at the April 9th Grand Opening**

Scottsdale, Ariz., March 30, 2011 –   In early April members of the public will have a chance to put their personal stamp to commemorate the opening of The Scottsdale Gun Club’s newest store in  Peoria, situated on the northeast corner of 83rd Avenue and Thunderbird.

The April 9th opening of the retail component for SGC|Peoria will also serve as the official kick-off celebration for the development of what will become the nation’s largest indoor gun range.   Nearly twice the size of the original Scottsdale Gun Club, upon completion SGC|Peoria will be a massive 60,000 square-foot facility.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, SGC|Peoria will be selling commemorative bricks that will line the entryway of the future shooting range.    Upon completion of construction, the engraved bricks will be unveiled to the public.

The four-inch-by-eight-inch bricks will cost $50.00 each, and purchasers will be able to engrave their names, and various messages, in 60 characters or less, on the brick pavers.  Various military and armed forces insignia will also be available.

“This is a great way for every resident to become a part of our newest club and help us celebrate the expansion and new beginning for the SGC family of ranges,” said Terry Schmidt. “As we move toward the completion of the nation’s largest indoor shooting range we wanted to create a way for everyone in the community to be involved.”

Proceeds from the brick sales will benefit Fighter Country Partnership (FCP), a leading community support and advocacy group for the aid, operation and preservation of Luke Air Force Base.

FCP was founded in 1997 by concerned civic, business and elected officials concerned by future development which could create encroachment concerns.  The mission of FCP is to sustain a high level of support for the men, women and families of Luke AFB and to protect and enhance its mission – to train the world’s best pilots, maintainers and support personnel while deploying mission ready war fighters.

“We are honored to be selected as beneficiary by the SGC Family,” said Ron Sites, Executive Director and President of the Fighter Country Partnership. “Fighter Country Partnership is proudly supported by diverse group of community leaders who want to ensure Luke AFB’s success and future in Arizona.  Our ability to succeed in our mission is directly proportional to the funding and community support we see.  We are excited to have such a great partner in SGC|Peoria.”

A public grand opening celebration for SGC|Peoria retail store is planned for April 9th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Renderings, plans and detailed construction timeline will be available to the public at the Grand Opening event of the retail location on April 9th.    Memberships, as well as limited Charter Memberships, will be available for purchase.  Members will benefit from reciprocal agreements between all current and future SGC locations.

The public is invited to attend the daylong celebration, which will be highlighted by exclusive vendor demos, prizes, giveaways and fun activities for the entire family.
