Range Maintenance Update November 10, 2020
We've had delays in getting our outdoor pistol range building repaired. The roofer has been working on it for about a couple of week now, and keeps finding additional damage, primarily to skylights. The additional skylights have to be ordered, then we have to wait for them to arrive. The roofer is working as fast as possible to complete the repairs, as materials become available. Thanks for your patience.
The range overhead baffles will soon be undergoing repairs. This may cause additional delays in shooting. Hang in there! We'll be back to 100% soon!!!
November 1st, 2020 -- Trap Shoot to Benefit the Linn County VA Foodbank.
This second annual event was held, we had 18 shooters vying for a chance at a monster ham, turkey, and prime-rib roast...all to benefit the local Linn County VA Food Bank.
Shooting was a bit difficult, with 35- 40 mph winds making the birds go every which way, but where the point of aim was!
In the end, the event raised $715 for the Linn County VA Food Bank. Thanks to Pat Cory,. the Coe Trap Team, the Kennedy HS Student Government, and to all those who came to shoot. Yes, thanks to those who brought the very tasty food!
Plan for next year!!!

Rimfire Sporter Program
The Rimfire Sporter Program is starting this summer, when current public health restrictions are lifted. This is a developmental marksmanship program for members/family ages 12 and up.
Our Rimfire Sporter Program will provide a fun and economical way to develop your marksmanship skills. We’ll fire from prone, sitting/kneeling, and standing positions. All you need is a magazine-fed .22LR rifle that has a 5-shot capacity. To keep your costs low and to ensure a level playing-field, no “tricked-out” rifles are allowed. You can begin now with our self-paced video tutorial, which will provide the knowledge for you to begin practicing on your own. The video series can be found in our Members Only area.
We’ll follow-up with an instructional practice match, and finally a series of fun rifle matches.
Please direct any questions to RifleLCIWLA@gmail.com.
We hope to see you at the range!
Watch this space for future announcements regarding our Hunter Education programs. At present, there are no plans to hold classes until the COVID-19 virus subsides, and we're able to hold group meetings once again.
