Fwd: Email blast

Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

The early morning drizzle didn't stop this group from shooting Saturday morning, excellent turnout of those remaining residence.

Two sets of targets with awesome shooting by everyone. ....  Well, almost everyone... At least by those who turned in their targets !!

Coffee cake started the shootout..  We shot darts and dots. Women shooters took the sweep, Sue Deden, Bonnie and Joanne.  

Check out da range tshirt. Bonnie still has men sizes available. Will replenish supplies in the fall. 

Congratulations to Bonnie! She is now a NRA certified pistol instructor and a NRA certified Range Officer.

Shootout Saturday April 16

Summer Texans, Bonnie is bored and wants to shoot something. She is planning a shootout for those left in Retama for 9:00 am, Saturday morning, April 16.
Note the 9:00 am start.

She is looking for a target with an IRS theme. Maybe you will pay a lot in and get nothing back! Bob and Kathy will be there to audit your targets.
Bring bullets and Coffee!

The steel targets have been picked up to keep them safe and are in Gregs coach house. You can still take them to the range to use them. Just ask Bonnie.

22 degrees in Minnesota this morning. Shooting in Texas sounds like a good option.

Shoot safe,

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!

Shoot safe,
