da Range Update 12/4


We are holding a gun range registration this Friday 12/7/2018 at the Bentsen Palm Village Clubhouse from 10:30 to 11:30. This registration is for both Retama and Bentsen Palm. The next registration will be early in January.

We have scheduled a Pistol Coaching class on December 12, at 9:00 am  Space is limited.  RSVP to Bonnie Fogg  RSVP.  Space is limited. Cost $20.

Please do not shoot yourself ..... our first aid kit was vandalized, and supplies were stolen.  We are moving the First Aid kit inside Mabel  and supplies will be purchased.  This is the second vandalizing in as many weeks. Our camera picked up the guy who shot the buckshot through our new foam backers.

The canvas shop has completed making our new sunshades.  Now it just a matter of welding the steel frame.

The Border Patrol has been keeping more of the levee gates locked. Finding an open gate is trial and error.  The dirt road past the camera tower is always open, but use caution on damp days.

A survey crew for the border wall has been working along the levee in our neighborhood.  Construction could begin in February

Can You Lend A Hand

View this email in your browser

Can you lend a hand?

Da Range is a special place, we have an awesome facility that continues to grow.  But, we need help, we need some volunteers willing to spend a little time keeping our range in tip top shape. Here's where we are needing help:

Brass Bucket Brigade.  Our shooters are picking up their brass, but we need help with the collection of the brass from the buckets and proper disposal. This is a weekly or 10-day schedule.
Yes, the brass can be recycled, but it would require sorting before taking to the recycle center, we can explain the process.

Garbage Detail.  We only have one garbage can, but it needs weekly pick up and disposal, and a new plastic bag replaced (bags supplied).

Ten Finger Pick up.  Yes, there are some who just cannot pick up after themselves.  We need a volunteer willing to pick up the stuff that seems to collect around the targets, like the plastic pink flamingo who appeared the other day.

Mabel.  Mabel is a godsend for keeping our gear safe and accessible, but it needs a keeper.  The Keeper will keep our gear organized, check supplies and targets.  
BTW, did you see the awesome NRL22 steel board that was hung the other day? NICE! 

Weed whacking.  The Rhodes mowing crew does a great job of mowing, but their big mower cannot get around all the stands.  Especially when the steel is set up. Perhaps a couple of guys are willing to partner to trim around the targets. Oh, but we don't have a weed wracker (at least not yet!). 

Targets.  Our foam backers occasionally need to be reattached and new tacks added.  Requires a portable drill. 
Then, there is the "Yahoo" who used their shotgun and distroyed  the brand new foam backers and wood stands.
We prebought enough foam backers for the season. Niles brings them from Minnesota in the fall, saving us shipping. But if we run out, replacements backers are $50 each. Thanks Mr. Yahoo!

We also have the steel plate hangers which are needing some serious work.  Anyone handy in working with rust? Well, not rust, but needing some serious elbow grease!

As you can see these jobs may require an hour every week or so, nothing difficult but many hands make light work.  If you are interested in helping, or know of a project that needs attention, or can lend a hand please contact Niles or me (our details are below).

Many thanks,
Bonnie Fogg
