A Few Words From the MAC President..
Outdoor season is in full swing. Thursday night 3D’s have been up and running and the Spot League has now started on Tuesday nights. Come out and shoot and have some fun. The range is in the best shape ever, it has now been inspected and many improvements have been made. The practice range has been moved, which now gives us the opportunity to offer primitive camping on the old practice range.

New 3D Targets have been ordered and should be here soon. Congratulations go out to Vance Cave and Phillip Morris for winning the 2-Man Unknown 3D Shoot on April 25th. Also, congratulations to JR and Heather Kirby on the birth of their daughter Kayla.

Many thanks go out to the people listed below for their work on the range recently: Jared Williams, Tim Reedy, Brian Benson, Al Painter, Reece Hensley, JR Kirby, Dave Robinson, Hunter Munsen, Jayson Sealock, Robbie Atkins and Gina Nadzam. A special thanks to Tommy Jenkins for supplying the Dozer and Wood Chipper, Vance Cave for the use of his Bobcat, Ralph Santmyers for operating the Dozer and Bradley Robinson for using his Tractor to spread gravel and York rack. When you see any of these guys, thank them and tell them how good the range looks.

The drawing at the monthly meetings is now up to $60.00. Keith Maddox was drawn at the April meeting and Jared Williams was drawn at the May meeting. Don’t let someone else claim money you could win! Show up at the meetings, it’s that simple. Remember, club policies and decisions are made by those who care enough to attend and participate in the monthly meetings.

For Your Information..

*We are considering some possible rule changes for next year, and are hoping to get Members’ suggestions. Club Members are asked to submit suggestions or ideas regarding rules to Officers now, BEFORE next Indoor Season, so rules will be in place.

*You can see the newsletters online earlier than the mailed or handed out version at Email me at and give me your email address so I can notify you when a newsletter posts. There are always copies at the indoor range. Let’s keep the money in the Club instead of giving it to the post office!

* Help is always appreciated maintaining the Outdoor Range… mowing, weedeating, etc.
* Kitchen help is always needed and appreciated for the outdoor season.
