Reminder – Work Party

No shooting is permitted at the range on Saturday May 3rd starting at 0830 am because people and equipment will be working on the various range venues doing clean-up and maintenance.

General access by members can resume once the work crews are finished – probably by 2:00 pm.

Thank you for your understanding.
