Well February was a rough month. Due to the bad weather and poor range conditions we were unable to hold any of our scheduled matches. Lets hope March is a bit nicer because we have some great matches scheduled this month. See the matches & events section below for full details.
I'd like to thank all of the members who showed up on Sunday 2/23 to help do some work on the range. Thank you to those that came down!
Guys, when using the range please clean up after yourselves! Every LIPSA member is responsible for putting garbage in the pails, taking targets down and returning stands & sticks from where you got them. Don't make other members clean up after you, thanks!
Problem at the range? In your travels, if you notice a problem with a piece of range equipment, please help us out by notifying us. Any problems with range equipment can be reported to our Quartermasters Jeff Paulsen & Bill Rodgers by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance!
