Have you reached out to your local gun club yet to secure range time for this season? I met with my gun club manager last night and I can’t tell you the relief I felt knowing I have secured both competition and practice time for my team. As most of you know range time in Minnesota is at a premium these days and much of that is due to the success of this league. For the most part gun clubs have done their best to accommodate our needs but they also have to consider the public and in some cases their membership. Don’t wait until the last minute to try and find range space, be proactive and meet with your gun club manager now to secure your fields for the season.
Over the course of the next year many of you will start seeing more action at your gun club. With so many clubs engaging in the MNDNR grant program the future looks bright for field expansions and upgrades. Don’t sit back and let them make all the decisions, these grants are for trap shooting specifically so let your club know that you want to be involved in the decision making process. Your input and guidance will help these clubs make the right decisions for the future of our favorite youth sport!
