April Presidents Message 2019

President’s Message
April 2019

Wow!  Time is racing by so fast, it seems there is so much to do and so little time to relax.  April is almost half gone.  We are truly “April Showers” and “Idaho Winds”.

If you haven’t been out to the range lately, it’s time to come out.  The multi-purpose range has been completed and looks great.  Remember, it is a range for Rifle, Pistol, and Shotgun.  You must bring your own targets, whether steel or paper.  Please remove your targets and clean up the range when you are done.

The Sporting Clays course is set up and ready for your enjoyment.  We now have 15 stations to test your abilities. The menus are set up for 100 target and 50 target courses.  The 50 target course is set up for recreational shooters, and the 100 target course for more competitive.  The
5 Stand building will have a six thrower course available during the summer months for those who wish to shoot it.

The Upper range project is still waiting for the weather to cooperate.  All work is completed except for the ADA ramps and railings.


On Saturday March 30th or Sunday March 31st, someone shot up a trap thrower to the west of the upper range with a rifle.  The cost to purchase a new carousel for the machine is expected to be approximately $500.  If anyone has information as to who may be involved, please contact one of the board of directors.  This type of behavior will not be tolerated .  As a result, the club will be spending extra resources to have a camera system installed which will tie into our existing system to help identify any future improper behavior at this location.

Enjoy some time at the range during April before it slips past us.  Be safe and enjoy!
