Monthly Membership Meeting

Range Work

1)  Range mowing will begin shortly.  Normally this will be done on Wednesday afternoons, but conditions may require other times.  Mowing has priority; if you get there while mowing is in progress, wait until the mowing is complete or come back another day.

2)  Refurbishment of the backstops will be done in the next couple of months.  E-mail notifications will be sent out to notify members when the work will be done.  If you are not on the e-mail list, the same conditions as mowing apply.

Work Party

The Range will be closed for a Work Party on May 1.  If you are able to help out, the following tools will be useful: shovel, garden rake, weed eater, hammer and electric drill/screwdrivers.

NOTE:  Trash barrels always need emptying independent of the work parties.  Let me know how many you have emptied for work time credit.   Be SURE there are no hot coals in any barrels emptied. David Howard

Smallbore Match

The first Smallbore Prone Match of 2021 will be held 10 April, starting 0830, at the B&G range.  F Class shooters as well as prone shooters are encouraged, rounds are to be fired single shot. The match will consist of three 20 round targets at 50 yards, three 20 round targets at 100 yards,  each target with a time limit of 20 minutes, for a cumulative total of 120 shots for record with unlimited sighters on each target.  Shooters are encouraged to bring their own wind flags to supplement the limited number of wind flags placed forward of the firing line.  Bring your own Pop up to shoot in the shade.  Generally matches are finished by 13:00.         Brian Hunter
