Work is still ongoing at our facilities; however, the new overhang on the rifle range and filling of the new berms has been completed. Other berm overhangs and painting of the storage buildings still needs completion. Let Frank know if you are available to help. Also, two 40 ft. storage containers will be placed end-to-end as a separating barrier between new Berm #4 and the Trap areas and a 20 ft. container will also be placed on site. Security cameras will be installed throughout the facility for range safety and compliance concerns, and the Skeet Field will be going wireless for smother bird operation.

Congratulations to John Bendele. He recently won several shooting events in SC and NC.
The Board has approved amending our rules to state: “Separate payments are required for Trap/Skeet use ($3.50) and using the pistol range ($2.00), because these are separate activities.”
