February USPSA match photos

Sunday, February 14th, Ben and I rode up to the club to check conditions. The road to the ranges hadn't been touched so we had to park at the clubhouse and walk back. It had been 5 days since the last snow and no one had been to the ranges since. Those are our tracks from where we had to leave the truck. It was a much more challenging hike than we expected. Snow was often over our knees.
We cut across the rifle range and this is the view in throught the gate between the rifle range and the back pits. As you can see it is still quite deep, and barring a radical change in the weather we might be quite a while before we are using the ranges again. Can you say Spring?
Then we had to walk back out. Luckily we were able to follow the trail we had cut on the way in. Here's Ben crossing the rifle range.
Better days are coming!

I got a plan!

I'd love to know what it is because it will require an average of 2-3 inches a day to melt without causing major flooding, which could be more of set back than the snow. I sincerely wish you luck.

Maybe we all should get snowshoes? Does anybody have a metal detector? I dropped my magazine.
