Range Clean up

May 5 and 6th is the second weekend of the Spring Range Clean up. Starting both days at 9am. One big thing is if you have a chainsaw, the downed trees where the planned short range location still need to be cut up into firewood.

Club T-shirts

For those who attended the April Meeting there was samples to look. If you would like to purchase a club t-shirt, please click this link to survey monkey.



The survey will be open until May 19th and the plan is to have the t-shirts available at the June meeting for payment and pickup. Every solid color of t-shirt is available but the design would look best on a lighter colored t-shirt.

Women on Target-

Event is on Saturday, July 28, 2018. The chair, Raquel Zbornik is looking for help. She could really use for the rifle event and general help for the day (set up, tear down, etc.) If you are able, please call her at 641-430-5358.

50th  Anniversary Celebration-

Mark your calendars for the afternoon of August 11, 2018 (August 12 is rain date)

Short Range Update- Free Firewood!

Trees have been dropped in the area of the planned short range. If you would like firewood please help yourself, there are many branches of the right diameter for firewood. They are mostly Cottonwood and Siberian elm, not the greatest for a fireplace but excellent outdoor firewood. If you decide you are interested in some, please drive in along the back side of the 50 yard range. If you are cutting make sure you turn the red lights on since most of the downed trees are past the common firing line. If you have a non-member interested in firewood please be with them while cutting or contact John Marino.

Vendor Shoot is set for Sept 8, 2018
