NEW STEEL TARGETS INSTALLED AT THE 1,000yd RANGE
Today was a BIG day at the 1000 yard range. We had 3 volunteers today to assist me with the tasks. Justin Copeland Chuck Smith and Mike Adam.
I delivered 29 pieces of 1″ thick Hardox steel targets. We had to do an little modification to the original m&m target hangers but that was accomplished easily by the certified welder Mike Adam’s.
We hung 5 large steel targets at the back berm and will be welding 5/8 cold roll onto the supports next month and will hang the other 5 smaller steel targets in March.
I am submitting photos of the work done today. A total of 12 volunteer hours was registered in the books.
Any questions please contact me.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS – WE NEED YOU!
The club could not operate without our volunteers and we truly appreciate the time our volunteers contribute. Here are just a few of the type of volunteering we need,
> Working our table at the gun shows
> Working with the children at our “Fishing for Smiles” event.
> Helping out at our “Antelope Eaters” (coyotes hunt) event.
> Helping with managing our membership list (Our membership is now 2,000+)
> We need Range “Observers” (see notes below)
> Minor general repair/maintenance work around the club
