Message from the President

I would like to extend a huge Thank You to the members that came out in support of their club to help clean up and clear trees for the Pistol Bunker Project on Veterans Day, Saturday November 11.  The project is a rather large and costly undertaking for the club and the number of members that were there was greatly appreciated, un-surpassed by attendance of work days in the past.  A total of 22 members completed the clearing of the bunker in a rather quick amount of time with no accidents  or injury, other than a few sore muscles that evening and a broken oil plug for a chain saw. We had a few trees that didn’t want to cooperate, but everyone stepped back and we didn’t have a one fall where it wasn’t wanted.

Moving forward we have secured a mound of free dirt along with a $500 donation for the project from a member, three miles from the club and have given the O.K. for Zollinger Excavating to put us on their schedule to place the dirt and mound our bunker higher, increasing our safety margin when shooting.  When the excavation is complete, if our treasury allows it, we plan to rebuild the target board area with new posts, target boards and steel target hanging area, hopefully all in time for next summer’s programs to begin.  The pistol bunker is open for shooting and an e-mail will be sent to the entire membership along with a posting on our web page for the days it will be closed as the above-mentioned work gets scheduled to take place.

 Again…. I just can’t thank you guys enough for a job well done;  Jim Bragg, Rich Wohlford, Steve Etter and grandson Fitz, Dave Swartz, Jim Zeiter, Mark Coburn, Gary Kohler, Aaron Hoskinson, Samual Hoskinson, Andy Hranko and Bisket, Duane Plessinger, Dan Cross, Craig Westphal, Tom Semonin, Tim Semonin, Dave Stenglein, Colton Dutter, Jay Lax, Jake Miller, Craig Miller & Lee Rue.
