Spring Work Bee
The spring work bee will once again be held the last Saturday in April (April 28) at both ranges. Work will commence at 9am. The fence surrounding the Wurtsmith range is once again in need of brush and tree limb removal. The inside of the Wurtsmith clubhouse is in need of painting as well as the outside of the 300 yard shooting shed. If you are specifically interested in one of these projects, you can contact any Board member and let them know. Other projects will be listed as they develop.
In order to alleviate conflicts when using the pistol and rifle ranges at the Tawas range, an additional pistol range is scheduled to be added early this Spring on the former Trap range.
The crushed gypsum which was placed on the floor of the Tawas shooting shed has disolved into a slime during the spring and wet weather. Therefore, this material will be removed and updated with a concrete floor. These updates will help to improve our shooting experiences at the Tawas Range.
