SPRING WORK-BEE HELD ON APRIL 24& 25,2021 A HUGH SUCCESS
The annual spring work bee held on April 24 & 25, 2021 was a huge success. A good turn out of members over the two days helped get the gun range in good shape for this year and beyond. The crew of volunteers got more work done than was anticipated. Check out the Gallery section of this website to see some of the work that was completed. The old flax bales were removed and replaced with new bales, a 75 yard target backstop was built . All target holders were replaced, more gravel fill was added to all the target berms, the wood pile behind the blue storage shed was moved and cleaned up, the range bird houses were cleaned out for the coming nesting season, the target shed was cleaned up, and the firing line was modified to accept the new wind barrier. There is stilla bit of work to be completed including the installation of the wind barrier on the west side of the firing line and the removal of the old wood fench behind the flax bale barrier.
A very special thank you to Daryl and Ferbies Sand and Gravel for the use of their loader and to Daryl for operating it. also a huge thany you to Ireland Farm Equipment for the use of their Fendt bale tractor and their employee Ryan Hansen for donating his time to move all the old and new flax bales. Thank you to all the club members who showed up over the two days nad volunteered their time to get all the work done.
