SIGHT IN DAYS REPORT
A total of 195 guns were sighted in starting November 14th as follows: Saturday, 20 guns; Sunday, 23 guns; Monday, 7 guns; Tuesday, 13 guns; Wednesday, 15 guns, Thursday, 31 guns and Friday, 86 guns. That means $1170 was deposited as well as $85 in donations. The new pistol range shed was a real Godsend, as it provided a table and chairs out of the wind for our workers to rest, warm up and have lunch. Two small heaters kept the temperature inside between 65 and 70 degrees.
Volunteers who worked throughout the week were Ron Highsmith, Sheila Shambaugh, Mike Hohm, Ron Peterson, Jeff Lazar, Daryl Coons, Jr., Tom Braesch, Bjorn Bang, Keith Ogren and Tim McGuire. Apologies if anyone’s name has been left out. Thanks to Tim for providing that delicious Elk chili on Friday.
There were not enough tickets sold to the rifle raffle, so we split the proceeds half and half with the winner. Daryl Coons, Jr. was the winning name drawn for $80. He paid his dues and donated the rest to the club. Many thanks, Daryl.
The pistol range is nearly completed. The electrical work will be completed in the spring as well as the necessary landscaping work and shelving built for extra storage. Check out our web site for photos taken while the work was being done. Haywardrodandgun.club
For those of you who reload your own ammunition, the club has both pistol and rifle brass available. For rifle, we have 30-06, .308, 270 and 30-30 brass, and for pistol we have 40 S&W, 45 Auto, 9 mm. and .380 auto brass. Contact Sheila at 715-865-2506 for further information.
