Mountain Shots August 5, 2013 by Danny Creasy
The range will open for the use of our paid up members and their guests on Saturday, August 10, 2013. There will be an Opening Shot Ceremony at 9:00 AM. Please bring the firearm of your choice (within the club rules) and christen our new range.
A 50/25 Rimfire Sporter Silhouette Match will follow the Opening Shot Ceremony.
There are a few more checks to write for the range construction. We will provide a detailed report in the next newsletter.
Please refer to the club calendar ("calendar" at top of board home page) for the times and dates of club matches and events.
There are still two new member induction days planned for September:
Saturday, September 7, 2013 at 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Both will be held at Edgemont United Methodist Church in Florence.
James Day and Mike Wagnon have met and worked out a plan to address the water problems at the range. There may be some short range closings from time to time as this work is completed in the next few weeks.
I personally want to thank all those that took the leap of faith and funded this "pig in a poke". The first time I heard our project referred to in this manner my dander was up. Now, about a hundred and a half of us are just laughing it off.

My first chance to see the range was today (8-30-13) and it was an awesome sight. I tip my hat to the guys and gals who were ,involved in the planning and construction of the range. You guys developed the perfect layout for the propertys' shape and location. I spent about 4 hours there and had a great experience. The plan of having the 3 rifle ranges side by side by side was excellent and clever. I only shot the 50 and 100 yd ranges and see right now an investment in a spotting scope is very near in my future.
Would you please those of you who I consider guru type of the shooting sport, please make you recommendations for a generally good scope for the 100 yd and on up ranges. I have a $200 to $300 budget. Also do we need to bring our own brooms and dust pans for shot brass cleanup?
Once again thanks to all responsible for this dream coming true!! Gary Howard
