*UPDATE* Indoor Range Weekend Workforce
Posted: November 12, 2018 at 5:40 pm by Nick Wagner
I wish to thank all of our members and guests who assisted with the installation of the rubber mulch, the new rubber backers, the clean up, and all the other ancillary items we accomplished Saturday morning. It was great to see you all there volunteering your time and energy to assure the range portion of our indoor facility was ready for the air gun match Sunday morning. Thank You WMU Crew, you certainly made our collective duties less challenging. We look forward to having your Team involved in our club activities.
A special thanks to Phil Wilson, a long-time SMGC member and former board member. Phil generously donated a brand new 10 cubic foot apartment-size refrigerator for the kitchen. Thank You Phil, the refrigerator will be put to good use and will be cared for.
If any member has a connection with a supplier of base cabinetry and counter tops we are planning to redo the kitchen, a partial wall in the common area, and the south wall in the range area. This will not only provide adequate storage but useful counter top for shooters and their equipment. Please contact me if you indeed have a connection or suggestions.
As the next couple of weeks progress we will need volunteers, once again, to help navigate the safe and other equipment to their new areas within the building. I will do my best to give you all adequate notice.
Again, Thank You All for your help and your support of SMGC.
SMGC Safety Director
