Please note a change to the shotgun Thursday night schedule. Beginning this month, the shotgun range will be open for Trap and Skeet practice on Thursday nights at 4:00 PM, however due to scheduling issues if no shooters arrive by 6:30 PM the range will be closed for the evening. So, the big announcement is if you plan to shoot Thursday nights you will need to be at the range before 6:30 PM.
On April 19th, some great club members volunteered to spend most of their day cleaning up the shotgun range and club house. Going through some of the awards, plaques and pictures that were on the walls of the club house, I found a certificate of recognition dated 2000. The award was to Snake River Sportsmen shotgun complex for being one of the most improved ranges in 2000. Over the last several years the hard work of the past by members of Snake River Sportsmen had succumbed to the Second Law of Thermodynamics: Entropy. (If snapshots of a system at two different times shows one state which is more disordered, then it could be implied that this state came a later time.)
Several Snake River Sportsmen members decided to do what they could to improve the appearance of the club house, storage sheds and grounds.
Jay Border brought out his tractor and spent most of the day filling in the ditch that had settled after the water line was installed last year. Howard Benson tackled the club house and storage areas and then installed some shelving, something he had wanted to do for months. Good job. Fritz Hallberg, and Chuck Otte spent the day filling up a construction site sized dumpster with years of accumulated treasure that had lost its luster sometime around the new millennium. The club house and grounds look so much better! If I’ve forgotten anyone please let me know.
Last but not least, Allan Vincent is working on re-roofing one of the storage sheds and painting both the club house and storage sheds which should be completed by the end of May.
