August President’s Message
July has been here and gone and we are well into August. Lots has happened since the last message.
Our annual Membership BBQ was a great success. There was a great turn out and all who attended had a great feast. There was plenty of pig which was provided by Del Monte Meats in Pocatello. Many thanks to Allison Geisler for chairing the responsibility to make this happen.
The outdoor pistol ranges are completed. They look great!! There are also a new plate rack, a dueling tree, and PT Hostage target to shoot in the middle pistol bay. Steel challenge plates and paper targets are available to shoot on the east pistol bay. A quick reminder to all members who shoot at these two outdoor pistol bays- For safety purposes, do not bring in and shoot additional targets with the exception of paper targets attached on stands in brackets that are provided for this purpose.
With fall approaching, we will see many folks sighting in rifles before the hunting season. Please be patient and safe with others on the range.
On another note- We are looking for a dedicated individual to be chairman of the lower rifle range. If you are interested, please contact me.

This will need to be looked into.
Calendar- Larry said all is up to date on the calendar.
