Mark donated a battery operated thrower, he built a 4-wheel dolly to help with the moving to and from the range — it looks like its working quite well. Its great to have Mark back, he has been away for a couple of years and is a great addition to our range community.

For those of you who are not here yet, or have not attended the sign-up/video meeting yet, a little update. My name is Tom Altwine. I am going to head up or organize the rifle shooting at our range this season. I would welcome any input you would like to share on this subject. Some questions I have for you would be:
How often would you want these shoots, i.e. Once a month, bi-weekly, weekly?
Just for fun, competition, or a mix?
Maybe some 25/50 yd charcoal or 100 yd steel?
What groups would you be interested in: rim fire with iron sights, or optical. Or
Center fire, with iron sights or optical? Or both?
Any interest in 300 yards?
Any interest in a women's only, men's only shooting day?
Any other ideas or suggestions, or comments?
If you will make a list of your answers (in the above order) I will compile them and get going on the most popular groups first. My goal is to make something available for everyone though.
The quicker I get your list of interests, the quicker I will get something going, hopefully that you will like and enjoy!
You can text me or heck, just give me a call. 307-214-0423 . If I am not home, leave me a message and I'll get back to you.
Oh yeah, one more thing: GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!!!!

March 2016 Gun Range Finance Report
$807.21 Balance on Hand February 29, 2016
$ 50.00 Donation from Bob & Kathy Barnett
$ 20.00 Range Fee
$558.00 Range Dinner Ticket Sales
$454.00 Range T-shirt Sales
$1,082.00 Income for March
$ 7.94 Office Max for Green Shooting Cards at Dinner
$ 6.40 Range Dinner Dessert
$356.22 Door Prize Drawing – S&W .22 Victory
$ 5.00 FFL Transfer Fee
$ 24.95 Range Dinner Paper Supplies
$359.00 Range Dinner Brisket from Rudy's
$1607.21 Expenses for March
$525.21 Expense over Income for March
$282.00 Balance on Hand March 31, 2016
Notes to the March finance report:
1) If you do the math, you will see that the Gun Range Dinner showed a profit of $75.21. Please note that Ell and Pat Stewart made and donated all the cole slaw, and that Donna and Ted Rogers made all the brownies for dessert for a cost of $6.40. The potatoes were donated from Toppa Hoppa.
2) The "da Range" t-shirts show a loss of $309.70. Note that about 20 shirts were given away as door prizes at the dinner and that we have shirts in inventory which we will offer for sale in the fall. (if you want one now, email Bonnie)
3) The polyfoam target backers seem to be working much better than the wooden 6x6. We will order some more of these in April for use next fall. That purchase should pretty much zero out our account.
++++ The project that we wanted to accomplish this season was caliche on the dirt road. Thanks to the Rhodes family, we now have a road that we can drive on if it rains. The project we are thinking about next year is a sun shade over part or all of the shooting tables.
Thank you to all "da Range" members and friends for a great season!

To make sure everyone has an opportunity to purchase a shirt we are planning on a 'garage' sale. Friday from 1-3p stop by Bonnie's house, 3903 Pelican Way.
We have plenty of men and ladies sizes available.
Pat & Bonnie will have a pitcher of margarita's which will certainly make shopping a little easier.
