    We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Rifle Range work parties on 6/6, 6/8, and 6/9.  We had 22 individuals and a total of 116 work hours over the 3 days.

    Some important information regarding the new reconfiguration of the Rifle Range - 

    • New target rails were installed at the 150, 200, and 250 yard positions.  
    • Berms 1 and 2 were dug out, rear of the range cleaned up, brush cut, and some debris removed. 
    • The 150 yard position requires a much taller target stand due to the location of the berms.
    • Please refrain from shooting the rails and/or shot blockers for the rails.
    • Position the targets accordingly.  Please position steel targets away from the rails in a spot where the berm is present and rail is not.
