NEW PISTOL RANGE
The new pistol range is almost finished. Painting and landscaping needs to be done as well as installing the target holders. After the cement pad was poured, there were work days on Saturday and Sunday, September 5th and 6th, where the walls were put up, joists and roof put on, etc. Workers those days were Tom Braesch, Tom Jones, Tim McGuire, Ron Peterson, Ron Highsmith, Mike Hohm, Kyle Froese, Ed LaBarre, Gary Hosler, Phil Binter and Sheila Shambaugh. Then, on September 20th, insulation and installation of OSB board was completed. Workers that day were Ron Peterson, Ron Highsmith,and Kyle Froese. Tom Braesch, Tim McGuire, Jason Weller and Blaise Guzzo. Apologies if anyone’s name has been left out. Great Job, everyone.
A big thank you to Ron Highsmith, who has been doing the mowing and keeping the ranges looking so good.
Be advised that Minnesota will no longer recognize the Utah concealed carry permit because Utah does not require actual firing on a range.
At our July picnic and election meeting, the following officers were elected: President, Tim McGuire; Vice President, Ron Peterson; Secretary-Treasurer, Sheila Shambaugh.
Directors: Dennis Meyer for a 3-year term, Kyle Froese for a 3-year term and Ron Highsmith for one year to complete the term of Cal Woods, who resigned.
