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.

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.

Several new circular 8 and 10 inch steel plates installed at the 100 yard mark to provide greater challenges.

Please check website for range closings because of Police department training and ASC training sessions.

Mike Pasco, Membership Director, has kindly agreed to assist me during this interim period by assuming the responsibility for arranging and coordinating all Trap Special Events.
