Insurance would be covered by the range insurance
Besides, the best insurance is good muzzle control and an RSO that dictates and
Enforces the safety rules!

$5.00 if I'm not mistaken, covers it.

The NFA actually wants only $3.00, but we ask for $5.00 it's a far easier number to deal with, and the extra $2.00 justifies the administrative duties that need to be done to process the names etc.

It will be good to see you all again also.

Keep in mind I think Dick still requires a firepit ring. Something similar in size as last year would be great. Mine ended up out at our trapline. I believe it was 30" diameter by 16" tall. Worked great for that many sitting around the fire. Kept all the teenagers busy feeding it too.

^^^ I see that predator is registered. Will his firepit from hell not be available? Dang, I wish I could help with this.

Ok..I'm back in the land of internet service and I'm in

Been awhile since I could attend and really looking forward to it. Here's a few golden oldies from the days when Fred was still with us.....I think Dick even had hair and of course we all had less "ballast"


Mission Control

Rifle Rack

Rich, Stu and Paul

Rich and Fred

Rich and Caesar

Some time along the line Paul built the first bunker and we used old school field wire phone sets, Fred was the Master of the snap shot, Rich and Caesar once had an awesome 8 shot shoot-off and as always..... a great time was had by all. As you can see from that second year shooter board Rich started with a challenge, I have watched it progress into its current level of participation and I know Fred would be happy to see everyone being involved.

Thnkx Dick for keeping this going.

Well depending on my moving arrangements. I might stop by for the evening then. Even just to watch, and meet a few of you gentlemen.

Most of those gents were after my time there. It is nice to see the range still going strong after some very humble beginnings many years ago.

I still remember that humble little range when I moved to town in 1992.

She's come a long way Hal, you should come by to see if and visit a while.

Alright

Ya skipped up a few years there....mine were scanned off negatives...you moved up to digital !!

Watchin those video’s brings back some fun time memories and the paint schemes for the elk and deer are awesome....way above the original brown paper wrap.

Who said change sucks

Time to start deciding on which rifle to bring....

Default Super prize donation

Auction Depot Calgary has ordered a Bullseye Shooting Camera system (Sight-in AmmoCam version) as a prize donation. Good to 300 yards WiFi system. Many thanks to gramps73 for his generosity.
