100/200-yd Rifle Range
The Club is scheduling workers to rebuild the cover on the 100/200 yd rifle range that was destroyed by the recent storms. This also includes rebuilding the concrete shooting bench at lane 15. Once these repairs are completed, we should have the Red Lights operational again. We anticipate these repairs will be completed, weather permitting, over the next several weeks.
600-yd Rifle Range
Currently bringing in dirt to fill in the low area retaining water near the protection berm and target pits. There are also plans to move the tan target house behind the protection berm.
This range is currently closed while worker are hauling in dirt and rebuilding the berms. They are also filling in low spots. This project is scheduled to be completed by end of December.
New Training Bays
Dirt is being brought in and placed for a new 14-ft tall impact berm in across the road from the existing 25/50-yd. handgun range. Plans include the construction of concrete filled block safety walls for two 30-yd. bays. These bays will be similar to the Action Range allowing for transitional work typical of current training environment and practical shooting competitions. We hope to have this completed by end of 1 Qtr. 2021.
A shortage of contractor availability due to COVID and storm damage restoration has delayed the repair and regrading of the roadways. We are working to get this done as soon as possible.
We will begin mowing and spraying of the impact and protection berms across the range soon. The Club has and is spending significant amount of money to bring these berms back up to proper heights for safety. It is important that we maintain these berms keep vegetative growth properly contained to prevent erosion, settlement or breaches.
We ask for everyone's patience and understanding during range closures as this work continues. We try to minimize the impact to our member's use of the range. Remember that mowers and workers have the right-of-way! Keep checking the Events calendar for notice of these closures.
