Consider signing some tickets out to sell to your friends and family- all $$ goes to the Range Project.Use the contact us form if you would ilke to get some tickets or sell some tickets, thanks!

From Lawnmowing Committee- The Rifle Range Road was built to drive down & park to put targets up at 300yds. STAY ON ROAD, do not drive up to targets, it is a short walk from parking to targets!

This ruts up the area causing difficulties while lawnmowing.
