May 18th Range Clean-up & Improvement Day

Come join us at our Range Clean-up & Improvement Day scheduled for Saturday, May 18th, from 9:00am – Noon.

To keep our 1st class shooting range functional, safe and looking good, we need to apply a little time & elbow grease on a regular basis. The primary method to accomplish these objectives is to ask the membership to spend 2-3 hours once-a-year to help complete some small repairs and/or new projects. We’ll supply the tools & materials…you just need to bring yourself and a can-do attitude.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet other SSSC members.
