Thursday, March 19th:

Work has been proceeding nicely on the rifle range!  All berms have been widen, raised, and in general, made safer.  Shaping the soil into suitable berms is continuing.  New targets are being installed.  

Work may continune into March 20th.  Please be patient -- this will be a major improvement in operations AND safety.

Looking at the entire range:
