Despite some very wet weather we were able to get targets in to all the houses. Please remember to load traps and close houses after shooting. If you are not familiar with loading traps someone will guide you through the process.
Fields one and two are now fully operational. Both fields can be shot as 5 stands or shot FITASC style. While we frequently change the setups on these fields they provide virtually all the presentations of Sporting Targets.
The low house on Field six in under repair and we hope to have it operational as soon as the weather cooperates.

GET THE WOOD OUT
On 10/9/20 Economy Tree Service performed a major facelift to the area behind Field 1, 2 and 3. Two trees were removed, three trees were pruned and trimmed , and all the deadfall from the recent storms was cleared. As a result of this work the area looks fantastic! Additionally, mowing can now be resumed in the area and potentially dangerous limbs have been removed from around the work shed. Hats off to Economy Tree Service.
Congratulations to Wes Lang, our 2020 club Champion!
