Rifle Range open!!
By Doug Shellenberger
The new firing line is completed and we have the blessing from the county. There is still several items to complete such as tables, rifle racks, and a shed for the range officers. The lighting system is not fully completed. They are also working on sealing the firing line from leaks. The new lighting system is really great. There are separate switches for each firing bay, a switch for the canopy lights and one for the range lights. These lights are hooked to a timer, so at 10 PM the range lights will automatically go off, at 10:30 the canopy lights will turn off. The switches are in the panel with the black handle. The panels are marked. We are looking at raising the large pistol berm as it has slumped a bit over the years. Nothing definite yet but we will have to close the pistol range while fixing the berm, stay tuned. Also a reminder , do not shoot across the range, shoot targets placed directly in front of the firing line, we are getting hits in the trees along the west side of the range. This is hard to believe but it is happening. You will probably lose your membership if caught shooting across the range. Remember, safety is your responsibility, be safe.
