Urgent Work Party

There will be a (hopefully brief) work party Sunday afternoon (October 9th) at 2:30. The goal of this work party is to maintain the structural integrity of the 50-yard range shelter. We will be installing joist hangers on some of the joists in the overhead. We will also be removing some of the load (wood) stored in the overhead. We will need bottle jacks (and wood to adjust their height), 4×4 or larger post to jack the joists, come alongs with straps or chains, LARGE pipe wrenches (to twist the joists of necessary), and impact drivers with ¼ inch drivers. If you can help and can bring any of the items above, please let me know. Otherwise, I’ll have to acquire them. I can be reached at XO@airfieldshootingclun.org. Thanks, and I hope to see you at the range! Art Schoner ASC XO

Work Party and Framing Expertise Needed

Sorry for the late notice, there will be a work party to build new frames this Saturday morning (September 17) at 9:30 a.m. The 50-yard range will be closed for the duration of this work. We will be replacing all of the existing frames. Tools needed include: drills/impact drivers, torx bits, snap lines, miter saws, table saw (for the beveled edge), chisels, hammers, and tape measures. For the light duty, or mobility challenged, we will also be installing grommets on backers. A hammer and utility knife are needed for this job. If there are any members with expertise in framing, I also need some advice during this work party. If you have any questions, I can always be contacted at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org. Thanks, and I hope to see you there, Art Schoner ASC XO

Work Party

Work Party It’s time to clean up and do a little range maintenance.  Given time, and enough members show up, I’d like to tackle the following items Sunday starting at 10:00 Pressure washing the outside of the restroom building. Cleaning both the 50-yard and 100-meter ranges. Sealing both ranges’ roofs. Repainting the red safety lines Sealing the wall between the ranges (if enough members show) General range and grounds clean up to include the trash immediately outside the gate. Priority will be given to the work on the ranges as to allow the Swamp Shooters access at 1:30. We will need: Ladders (both step and extension) Gas powered pressure washers Garden hose Telescoping painting poles for sealing the roofs. (We have the brushes and adaptors) Gas/battery powered leaf blowers Telescopic pressure washer wands for use on the roofs. Tools to facilitate safely removing the trash by the gate (rakes and hoes).  There may be reptilian inhabitants. The forecast is for temps in the 90’s and thunderstorms in the afternoon.  Bring plenty to drink and if the rain forecast holds true, we’ll have to delay the roof work.  So come out and clean up and improve your ranges.  Remember both ranges …

Thursday Help Needed

I’m looking for people interested in spending a little time on the range this Thursday. A dumpster for Sunday’s work party will be delivered inside the range area sometime Thursday. All that will need to be done will be to direct the driver to leave it in the correct location. I’ll give 2 hours of service for each half day (for less than 10 minutes light labor). Ideally, I’d like a volunteer to be at the range in the morning and one in the afternoon. I’d like the morning person there NLT 830 and the afternoon person leave no earlier than 3 (or until the dumpster is delivered). I will get a call 30 minutes prior, but I live more than an hour away. If you live close by the club, and can be on standby (for half or whole day), that would be great as well. I will coordinate the desired location, phone numbers and names after I get the volunteers. If you’re able to help out, please contact me at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org. Thanks, Art Schoner ASC XO

Pin Match Canceled

Due to significant rain tonight, and the forecast more tomorrow, the May Bowling Pin Match is regretfully canceled. Stay tuned for more information concerning the rescheduling of the June match (due to Women on Target). If you have any questions or concerns about the cancellation or June’s match, contact Steve!

WORK PARTY!

We’ll have our spring frame and Bowling Pin Table work party this coming Saturday February 26th at 10:00. We will build 7 bowling pin tables and replace the SRB target frames. Some other frames require some repair, but not replacement. We will need at least one table saw to rip the lower cross member of the frames. Some miter saws and drills/drivers should do the rest. If you have Torx drivers, bring T20 through T30. We will be working on the 50-yard range and the hundred will remain open, except for time to retrieve and replace frames for repair. Given sufficient turn out we should be done by noon. I also need volunteers to get service hours for shooting! The wood for the work above will be delivered sometime Friday. I won’t know more about scheduling until late Thursday or Friday morning. I’d like 2 volunteers to cover all day Friday. One from 8 until 12, and the other from 12 until 4. You’re free to shoot, or just lounge around. I just need the range open and someone to accept the delivery. If you’re interested, please contact me via email at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org. Thanks, and see you on the range. …
