January 2018 Indoor Range Update

For the year 2017 the club sold 6,232 targets and about 100 sets of ear protection, returning $1266.59 to the general fund.

In 2017 we replaced both 7.5hp blower motors and kept the older one as a spare.

A new delayed start system for the blowers was installed. This it is hoped will increase the life of the blower motors To date, there are over 400 hours of run time on the motors.

Both heating systems were serviced in 2017.

There was a great increase in members calling or e-mailing problems at the range.

January 2018 Facilities Update

The year of 2018 is here. The #2 Trap Range will be open to use in the daylight hours. The house has been completed, the shooting ports have been measured, and the machine has been installed and tested.

Arrangements have been made for the archery range and trap field to be shoveled after each snow fall.

See you all at the club!

January 2018 Trap Update

Happy New Year! 2017 was a busy year for the trap/skeet range with a number of trainings, events and work on the fields. I would like to first, thank all of the operators and volunteers for their help throughout the year as we couldn’t run the range without the support.

The new trap field has been completed and ready for daytime use. Thank you to all that helped – and we will hold an inaugural event once this cold breaks. The new field will be opened at the operator’s discretion through the winter so please be respectful of their decision. We are all volunteers so if there are concerns, please reach out to me but thank the operators for what they do!

On January 14 th we will be holding our annual Spirit Shoot. There will be 4 different events and they fill up fast so please come early. It is a great shoot every year and is lots of fun for all levels. Look for more information soon.

Finally, a reminder to all shooters. Please only sign up for a squad at a time – this will become particularly important as we increase the use of the second field. Also – shooters should only be punching their cards before they shoot – not several squads ahead of time. Again – this will allow us to manage the fields accordingly and allow for smooth operations. I appreciate your cooperation with both of these rules.

Finally, with the cold weather and snowstorms, watch the website for cancellations. We will post as early as possible on any closures.
