It was decided during the April meeting last Wednesday evening that improvements to the shooting range would be made on the 27th during the spring clean-up day. The range will remain closed until that time. There were also several applications read to be voted on next month.
THE SHOOOTING RANGE AT THE CLUB IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO AN INCIDENT ON 3/30/13 INVOLVING SOMEONE WHO LIVES ON 218 CALLING THE SHERIFF'S DEPT. AND REPORTING THAT A BULLET ZIPPED BY THEIR HEAD. LUCKILY NO ONE WAS HARMED, BUT WE MUST FIGURE OUT THE DETAILS AND HOW TO KEEP IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN BEFORE WE CAN RE-OPEN THE RANGE. AS SHOOTING ENTHUSIASTS, WE ALL NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHERE OUR SHOTS ARE GOING ALL THE TIME! I WILL POST MORE DETAILS WHEN AND IF I RECEIVE ANY. THANK YOU AND BE SAFE.
