Spring Clean Up at the Outdoor Range

Well it’s thats time again. On Saturday, May 7th starting at 9am, we will be meeting at the outdoor range to gear up for this season. Everyone is welcome to come out and give a hand getting the range ready, and this is a great way to get some volunteer time in. We will need lots of hands to help out. We will have rakes and other tools on hand but if you come please bring along extra: rakes, cleaning supplies, and buckets. See you at the clean up.

New Ten X Range Flags

Our range renovation projects are the second leg necessary for a solid youth development program.  We recently signed a $5,000 contract with a local architectural and engineering firm to come up with a plan to achieve new ventilation, heating, and containment options.  Stay tuned for updates.

Author and highpower coach Glen Zediker wrote a lengthy piece for the NRA’s Shooting Sports magazine and his blog.  It is worth reading.  Members who have their own ideas and inspirations should comment or pass on those ideas to the […]
