Snow Shoveling Help Needed
With so many new members looking to fill their work hours, Julian made a suggestion that new members could assist the club with some hand shoveling after each storm.  Each snowstorm the driveway gets professionally plowed, but four areas also need clearing are always lagging behind, sometimes being neglected altogether.  The four areas are:
- the front walkway
- the tarmac behind the pistol ports
- the walkway leading up to rifle/skeet
- the skeet field
Having these areas cleared after each storm would provide accessibility while providing safety.  Optional areas would be walkways out on the pistol range to the 20 ft. and 50 ft. target stands and the walkways onto the trap field.  Angelo Santoro will be working with new members to help with this task.
