Over the course of the past several years, Member
participation in our annual "Work Day" has dwindled (only 8 hardy souls
participated on April 9, 2016). Understanding that we are all constrained by
hectic schedules, certain "maintenance tasks" are still needed on the
Association Grounds (especially following the recent extensive excavation and
relocation of some ranges).
Several suggestions have been "tossed about" to address
these needs. One such is a set number of hours, per member, mandated annually to
be included with membership. Another being, multiple "Work Day" events to offer
more than one opportunity. The idea of "contracting out" was deemed too
expensive and unsustainable without a substantial Annual Fee
In an effort to solicit additional Member involvement in
properly maintaining our facilities (with minimal disruption), we are asking
those going to the "Grounds" to practice, exercise, scout or just for some
solitude to help by removing limbs, sticks, rocks or any such debris from
walkways, ranges, access roads and grassy/mowed areas or pick up "brass" and
deposit it in the proper containers. To inquire regarding any immediate
needs or suggestions, please email below for
