Thanks to Work Party

Last weekend work was completed on a general Pistol Range overhaul. The sacrificial shielding protecting the dueling tree and falling plate bunkers was replaced, the bunker roof was repaired, new target boards installed, general cleanup, the outhouse was leveled the and coated with wood preservative.

On behalf of all the pistol shooters, I’d like to thank the work crew.
