Range Work Day July 7, 2018 a great success!

Great things were accomplished during the July 7th, 2018 range work day! Big thanks to all the members that came out and contributed to the success. Big thanks also, to Jeff Chestney, club President for putting in all the time to organize, obtain materials, and assign project managers for each task. Made the day run smooth and got everyone out of the afternoon heat. Great job!

New benches were built and placed on Range 1, 6 and 7.

CONEXs were painted.

Bathroom building and range office were painted.

Well house was primed.

Work was completed around 10:30 AM. Lunch was served. Then the games began. The moving target on Range 6 was put into play for those that wanted to take the challenge! This is what ERGC is all about. Membership, social club, family fun.

July 7, 2018 Range Workday

ERGC Members,

Hello members, friends and fellow shooting enthusiasts. June has flown by and this is a reminder that we are just one week out from our scheduled work day on 7 July. Below is a revised list of the projects we plan to complete.

The plan is to shut the range down the morning of 7 July and work from 0800 – 1100. Following what we believe will be a very productive day, you will be treated to a free lunch and drinks. But wait, that’s not all. It would be un-American to spend time at the range without a little shooting. So, after lunch the plan is to slip over to range 6 and have a quick side match on the Action Pistol moving target. How does a $5 dollar entry fee along with the club throwing in $100 dollars and we will split the money up to the top three shooters. If you haven’t ever shot on a mover, it’s pretty addictive and I think all will have a great time.


Seating at ranges #1 and #2 (total of 15 benches) Jeff Chestney

Project managers are listed above to minimize down time and complete as much as possible. Any unique qualification you have, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Mike Roberts and we will coordinate your expertise. Looking forward to meeting getting to know as many of you as possible.

Jeff Chestney
ERGC President
