Range Working Bee
This year, like every year, we ask our members to help set up the rifle range for the coming year.
We need your help.
The reserve day is the following Sunday, 8th but only if the weather is terrible on Sunday, 1st. Formal postponement will be posted to our Facebook page.
If we all pitch in then the range will be in good operating condition for Branch Competition Shoots and also for when you need to sight in your rifle. Now that Spring is here you really should be getting your hunting rifles sighted in. You can do this after the rifle range has been tidied up on Sunday, 1st!
The 6 intrepid members going on the club promoted alpine hunting trip down to Glacier Country on the West Coast should definitely be making sure their rifles and zeroed in and on target – you wouldn’t want to miss that chamois buck or bull tahr of a life time, Lads.
Our Range Officer, Richard Mailman, will be overseeing the working bee. Please follow his guidance.
We need members to arrive at 9.30am with tools in hand and high spirits.
We would really appreciate a good turn out to make light work of the jobs. If you use the rifle range, please considering giving something back!
Please bring with you:
- rain jacket, if there’s drizzle on the day, as we’ll go ahead with the working bee.
- work gloves.
- shovel or spade.
- useful tools– hammer, nails, drills, etc (just in case something needs repairing).
- cleaning gear – rubbish bags, cleaning spray, old rags.
- lunch and drinks.
The plan is to:
- clear the drains/creeks on the walk up to the targets.
- tidy up the shooting platform
