July 2018 News
Here are the minutes from July’s Monthly Club Meeting. July.pdf
One of the main topics was Fire Control and Harvest, both have come faster this year. We have closed the range due to the farming activity to the south side and with the heat we closed down the rest of the range because of fire hazard to the wheat field to the East of the range. We have no dew in the morning on the range and with the red flag warning we have closed the range until the conditions improve. We need to get work done on the Rifle Range and this includes Discing a fire break, cutting down all vegetation on the berms, and removing all vegetation on the berm facing the benches. We will need to have some people with the water tank ready just incase we do start a fire working on the berms and this takes a 2500 or bigger truck to pull the tank around.
We need to have a crew work on filling some super tote bags with hay and the baffles that we have to make bullet stop berms for the Action Range to replace the bales that are falling apart. We have planned the work day to start on Friday, July 20th . With the range closed now we can start work this week if we have people who are available to work. Reply to this email the day and time you can help out this week.

August is National Shooting Sport Month. For the entire month we plan to share photos from our members that celebrate the passion we all have for target shooting. Our goal is to raise awareness while proudly encouraging shooting and shooting sports as a positive, safe, family-friendly pastime that is enjoyed by millions of Americans. We’d like to invite our members to submit photos of you and/or your family enjoying shooting on the range with a brief description. Old or new photos will work. We plan on sharing submitted photos on social media throughout August! All submissions will be eligible for giveaways!
