Range Usage

Rifle Range – 57 members, 8 guests and 14 RO visits. No targets changed. No suggestions.

Pistol Range – 87 members, 13 guests and 15 RO visits. Tony Ford changed targets 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 on 1/31/19. No suggestions.

Running low on foam targets and will probably need to order in March or April. There was a discussion to determine the best way to buy the foam. In large sheets or purchased already cut.  Consensus was that we should buy large sheets and cut them ourselves, since they charge $2.00 for each cut.  When Chris orders the foam for the targets, he will keep Ernie in the loop.

Pattern range – no usage.

Range Officers

One incident was reported.  Member was spoke to about not having his card on him. Clarence verified with Rose that he was a member.  Member said he would have someone help him print his card.

Bob thanked Adam Painchaud for the training he gave to the Range Officers. Clarence and Ed also said that the training was exceptional.

9 Range Officers – 5 vacancies – Clarence spoke to Zack and he said he will get his membership taken care of when he has the funds to do it.  Mike Hoffman is in Florida and therefore will not around the range until he returns.


Dave snowed last night so skeet was cancelled. Bill was good enough to go down and keep the fire going.  Only a few shooters on Saturday because of the weather, it was just too cold.  He will work on trap machine when it gets warmer.  Everything else is going well.  Still have lots of clays, but will have to get into stash before too long.  Also, it was asked how people find out if skeet has been cancelled.  Usually the same people shoot skeet, so they can call Dave or Dave will call them.

Kids Fishing Day – will bring up again when Mark is back in town. We should be thinking about this soon and there is lots of preparation beforehand.

Fish and Game  – no update.

Pack 859 – no update
Dam – no update.
