                        NOTICE

THE RANGE IS CLOSED TO ALL SHOOTING ACTIVITIES THIS WEEK, JANUARY 30 THROUGH FEBRUARY 3rd. Some of the work is on the High Power firing range, because of this ALL shooting is prohibited. I will keep progress posted nightly and should the closing run longer, I will let you all know here.

Monday. Work has started, Upper row of pine trees is down, stumps removed. One of the lower rows is also down. Four remaining. The ground in that area is very soft, the roots stubbornly holding on. Tomorrow the last of the tress, then the old trap field lanes. If all goes well, they should start on the drainage ditch below the new trap field. It may be Thursday before we lay the new trap field lanes.

Tuesday. Cold, snow and water. Runoff of water and melting snow brought work to a standstill. Ont tree dropped early morning, excavator swimming in mud. The ground is so soft they had trouble moving around. Jeremy was going to get the rest of them down in the afternoon. Tom and I left as the crew broke for lunch. They were going to let the water drain before doing anything else. With the cold and little precipitation may be able to get the old trap lane dug out, then the drainage ditch in place. Will keep you posted.

Wednesday. Wednesday the last of the of the pines were felled, and hauled into the woods, except for the root balls.

Thursday. Mother nature is working against us!  The ground is so soft that the equipment is bottoming out . Gravel delivered. The root balls have not been moved. Today the water is still flowing in a healthy stream. The water is flowing out of the ground from the hill above the shotgun canopy. A small amount of water is still coming from where the pines were, around the old roadway.

 

Work on the new Trap Field is re-scheduled for the week of January 30 though Feb 3, 2023. Any members that can help during this week contact me. We will need a hand setting the trap lane forms in place. While we are working the range will be closed to all shooting activities. Check back for additional information on the work progress.

New Application Form has been posted along with the Background Check Waiver From.

All, just letting everyone know, I’m not updating, following or using the MDRC Facebook page, I do not respond to IM’s. If you have a question or need to speak with me, send an email. Email address is on the Director’s Page.  Bob

 

                                                    

No Shooting at any Target laying on the ground. Elevate the target so the bullet will strike to 100 yard berm, not plow ruts like this.

 All Rimfire pistol competitors will have the option of starting from the low ready position or the holstered position with their hands raised, on future Steel Matches. You will not be permitted to change between them during a match.
