Fisher Industries has made good progress the past couple of days as they move west along the river, and they are on task to get our berm built. A lot of machinery has been along the river, cleaning the vegetation, slopping the river banks and shifting dirt for the berm.
The road which runs north/south towards the river and along side our range has been graded, we have affectionally nicknamed it Fisher Lane, Fisher Drive, Fisher Road .... maybe just Fisher would work!
The range will continue to remain close as the crews begin moving the dirt and working on the bern. We expect this to happen at any time.
BEYOND CONCEAL CARRY CLASS 1-23
Our scheduled "Beyond Conceal Carry" class will continue as planned. Alex Gonzales is our instructor and has modified the class agenda slightly. The class will start promptly at 10 at the Range. If you are planning on attending the class, please bring your conceal carry pistol, holster/conceal purse .... but NO AMMO!!
The planned live fire portion of the class will be dry-fire only.
Please RSVP to Bonnie or Niles, contacts below.
Class fee is $20 / cash is appreciated please.
SHOTGUN & 22LR Marksmanship - Tuesday
C A N C E L L E D.
If anyone is wanting a lend a hand, we could use some help with the maintenance of the range. Garbage cans need to be emptied, brass buckets cleared, and weed eater along the targets and long grass areas. Pat Stewart as a weed-eater.
On the wish list is the cutting down of the scrub trees on the slope behind the pistol bench. We don't expect one person to do this entire list, a little bit helps distribute the workload!
The rebuilding of the portable target stands continues ... thank you Recon! Yes, that's his signature on the rifle bench risers!
Plans are underway to add two more rifle benches under the shade cloth, where the tank trap currently is.
