This week’s rain has caused the club grounds to flood, yet again. Not as bad as I have seen, but bad enough for me to ask all who venture forth to see, to be careful. There is debris in the usual places, and wash outs in the usual places. Caretaker Matt and a crew of 7 have band-aided the grounds for now, but more rain is expected in the coming 24-36 hours.
Be wary of the road to the ranges, it washed out very badly in two places, and while it was patched tonight, I cannot guarantee there will not be craters large enough to swallow a compact car tomorrow.
The back pits are a disaster.
The rain is supposed to subside on Friday. Therefore, we will be having a club work detail on Saturday, 7/28, starting at 8am. We will be mostly picking up flood debris and carting it to the brush pile. Bring chainsaws, rakes, shovels, boots work gloves and such. Bring a dry set of cloths for the trip home. We will need a few trailers to cart stuff about.
We will also be washing down the trout building floor and the rifle range stat shack, and likely pulling clay birds and a thrower from the trap range.
We will meet in the driveway in front of the clubhouse at 8 am. At noon, we will serve a pizza lunch for all who survive.
