August 4 News report

Today the Club saw a marked increase in attending shooters who traveled as far as 1.5 hours away to join us. Many new shooters are members of the United States Practical Shooting Association and are Nationally Ranked.

In addition Mr. Rick Steel Area 5 Director of United States Practical Shooting Association came to check out our range and competed. Some comments from Mr. Steel were that he was Impressed with  what is going on with the range so far, that he liked the Positive Attitude of Chief Instructor and Owner of the Club and Range and that I and other Board Members were quick to respond to new ideas for the range operations. I am very grateful that Mr. Steel came to see us today. Did I mention that he absolutely blisters anyone in competition by at least half of their score.
