All Outdoor Ranges Closed Until Further Notice!
Mother Nature has dealt us a bad hand of cards. The flood of 2013 has covered all outdoor ranges (1-7) making them unusable. We do not know when the water will recede enough to resume operations, but watch our web site for announcements. We had severe flooding conditions in 1992, but nothing like this. Undoubtedly we will need work hour time for clean up operations.
YSSI weekend cancelled
We feel for the Boy Scouts that their event had to be cancelled due to flooding at the club. Bob Bjerke stated that due to scheduling issues it would be rescheduled for 2014.
From Our Treasurer:
Our annual membership has been capped at 850. Get your renewals/applications in ASAP.
April Gun Show A Big Success
Our gun show held the weekend of April 13? drew 750 attendees. Exhibitors manned 73 tables (an increase of 10), and the kitchen did a great business for the club. A big thanks to all of our volunteers , and to Will Baer and the small bore gallery shooters for adjusting their schedule.
