Work Party and Range Repair Update

Range Repair Update

In Phase One, the lead remediation company is scheduled to arrive and begin work on Wednesday April 12. Their work should take one week. Phase 2 includes rebuilding and expanding the SRB, as well as work on both the 50 yd and 100m berms. If all goes well, phase 2 will begin immediately after Phase 1 is completed. Phase 2 should take 2 weeks. I’m going to close both ranges from April 12 until May 10 to account for any delays, including, but not limited to our variable spring weather. As the times approach and the work progresses, I will keep everyone informed and update the calendar. Hopefully the work is done before May 10, but I’d hate to have something scheduled and then not have the ranges available. Unless I post otherwise, the shotgun fields will be closed during the week while work in in progress for the workers safety. The shotgun fields SHOULD be open on the weekend.

Work Party

It’s also time for a spring-cleaning work party and for us to clean up the vegetation on and around our berms. We will be giving the wall its annual coat of sealant. If anyone has, or has access to a wood chipper/shredder please let me know, as I don’t think we should be dumping any longer.

Items we will need include, but are not limited to:

Pressure washers
Pressure washer surface cleaners
Water Host
Leaf blowers
Hedge trimmers
Brush cutters (string edgers aren’t really up for the task)

I know this is last minute, but I was just given the above work schedule, and this work needs to be completed prior to their arrival. To allow our church going members to attend, the party will start this Sunday April 2 at 1:00 PM. Don’t forget extra batteries or 2 cycle fuel for your tools! Are my snake loving friends available?

If you have a chipper/shredder, or any questions send me an email at

I hope to see you Sunday!

We have asked when it will be available, but do not have an answer yet. As a result, there is going to be a delay for those members requesting refilled or new cards for the shotgun range. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this time. We will provide updates as they become available.

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 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 Thanks, and I hope to see you there, Art Schoner ASC XO
