Planning Team Update:

Our top priority has been a remake of range 1, which has been the most utilized for events and member useover the years. The next project will be upgrades to range 7. The planning team will be soliciting input from our members and event directors as to how we may better serve our customers (that means you). Watch for more later. We are also considering a listof self directed work projects that 1or 2 members could do for work hours. Watch for this soon.

Comments From Our Groundskeeper:

Please police the grounds after you are finished shooting. If your targets cannot be placed in the trash barrels, then please take them to the dumpster by the clubhouse.

Editorís Comments:

Keep using your insect repellent. Enjoy the new digs on range 1, and volunteer your time (work hours) to make our club better.

Our lake is a great asset to our club. I recently observed a family fishing and saw a little girl really grinning when she caught a fish. We will keep lake upgrades on our planning to do list.
