Message from Our Club President
Hope all had a great Independence Day. At a time when America is at a breaking point with such different views. Be safe. Please dress accordingly when visiting the range.
Rifle Pistol Range construction is progressing well, Pistol range concrete slab is done, steel roof supports are up. Rifle side underground work is done, concrete slab should be poured by June 7th, and steel roof supports installed the following week. The berms and ranges have been contoured and graded according to our plans. The 12,000 volt PG&E line is scheduled to be re-routed in July, after that is complete we can start the Range office building construction
Last we heard $800,000 over budget. They also told us the range was going to cost approx. $1.4 million, right now at $2.8 million
We had a great shoot on June 23rd. This shoot was the Fred Gobbell skeet shoot. It was a “Lewis class type shoot.” We had 6 prizes with the overall high (tie) score by Gregg Morse. There was a tie for first with Ed Burgess but was 1 bird short when we did a long run to determine the winner. Ed did win the A class so no losers there. Great job guys. We had 24 shooters, would have been 25 but Mr. Miles Eisentraut was helping pull and score and didn’t get to shoot. Big thank you to Miles for helping out. Ed White (no surprise there) also helped score/pull. Board members stepped up to either pull/score or prepare lunch. Thank you Terry, Mike, Roland, Nancy, Pat. Garst Peterson and his brother Erik made/bought and prepared some of the best jumbo my lips have ever touched. Thank you gentlemen. Erik Peterson owner of Rancho Cantina in Lafayette does a great job every time we have had him in the kitchen, Garst can also hold his own in the kitchen. For a great night out go see Erik at his Spanish style restaurant (Rancho Cantina).
