Range #5 the New Action Range has a short list items be added or installed within 30 days to allow the range to be used. Thanks to the volunteers who worked tirelessly to groom and maintain the ranges and thanks to the members for their understanding while ranges were closed for backhoe work and target frames were rebuilt.

The course of fire consisted of 5 steel chickens at 60 meters, 5 pigs at 100 meters, 5 turkeys at 150 meters, and 5 ram sheep at 200 meters. Shooters had the option of shooting 40 targets and count the best score out of 20 targets. Weather was nice and the match was a hoot. Thanks to Jacques and Hellene for running an excellent event.
