Elmore Conservation Club Charity Sight-in Day Oct. 30

The 38th annual Dick Gremling Memorial Sight-In Day, sponsored by the Elmore Conservation Club, is set for Saturday, Oct. 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the club range, 15550 West Portage River South Road, Elmore.
The day is a public event aimed at giving shooters the opportunity to sight in rifle, pistol, slug-gun, handgun, or bow for the hunting seasons. A donation of $10 per firearm or bow is asked, with proceeds going to Elmore area charities for the needy at the holidays. Experienced club staff will be on hand to assist.
The range is located along the Portage River, south side, a half mile west of State Rt, 590. For questions, call Rich Marleau, 419-729-3358.
Members, if you want work hours, show up for Sight In Day.

***Attention members***
Please use caution when at the range. You are your own range safety officer. Please follow all range rules and strict gun safety.
1. Repair shooting benches as needed.
The benches on the ground need repair. Find parts in the garage.
2. Build target boards.
The boards that hang in the bunkers that you attach targets to need to be made. parts are in the garage. There are instructions on the wall left of the large sliding door.
3. Clean coffee pots in the club house.
4. Clean inside of club house (wipe down surfaces mostly, other lite cleaning).
This needs to be done before trap can resume. So the starting November 4 through the 10th, that needs to be done. Supplies are in the club house. This needs to be supervised by Bud Cooper so let us know if you intend to do this.
5. Paint the club sign on the road side of the garage.
The paints are in the garage on the rolling bench and are water based for clean up. The sign needs to be freshened up.
6. Paint the green siding on the garage Lite Blue to match the rest of the garage.
Again, paints are in the Garage. Please let us know if you plan to do the painting so we can be there to give more precise instructions.
We’ll will be calling members that have not done work hours to see if they want to do these. If you plan to go, let us know through a PM on Facebook or email from the website. They’re all fairly lite work.
Get the hours in doing some of these chores.
