Ongoing Construction Closures on “A” Range

Work is continuing on the high berm between our property and the neighboring property.

These closures will be in effect from 7am to 11am on Thursday and Friday June 22-23, and again from 7am to 11am each day next week from Monday June 26 to Friday June 30. Members will be able to continue shooting on “A” Range each day after 11am. For your convenience, our 200 meter “B” Range will remain open to shooters as usual most of these days. The closures are because of construction. This large berm is being built between the left side of “A” Range and the adjacent property for safety reasons, at no cost to the club.
