We had a great turnout for our 37th annual Dick Gremling Memorial Sight-in Day for charity.
So many sportsman came to sight in for deer season, we got very busy and the participants waited patiently. Dick’s daughters came and contributed to the total.
A big thanks to Rich Marleau, Steve Pollick, and Larry Kosbab for doing a FANTASTIC job helping all those folks figure out their scopes.
Several of shooters also expressed interest in becoming members. Let’s hope they join us and help to conserve our natural resources for years to come.
