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.

September 2017 Archery Update

We will be placing an order for additional 3D targets and will be relocating some targets as well as adding targets to the 3D course. Trail maintenance will be performed, volunteers to assist is always greatly appreciated.

On the practice range we are in the process of designing and installing a wall between the new trap range and the archery field. Our goal with the wall is first for safety and maintaining a visually pleasing effect on the practice range side.

September 2017 Outdoor Range Update

First a big thank you to Tim, Don, Alan, and Mike for all the help with the maintenance during the summer months on the outdoor range.

2nd Annual Steel Crush family shoot (.22 LR ) went very well and we had a larger turnout. Thanks to Alan Arena and all the RSO’s, the contest was a big success.

ODPR updates completed which include additional protection at the end of the range to provide additional containment and prevent any possible issues with errant rounds. (Thanks to Brad and his team).

New screens installed on the ODPR building interior windows to prevent birds from perching on the ledges.

Replaced steel bars and installed new targets inside tractor tires at the 75 yard mark.

Assembled and installed new target stands for at the 50 yard mark.
