ER work Party thank you!

A huge thank you to all who helped out at Elk River today!!

Lot of work got done, the building stained and interior cleaned, some lead
removed from targets and sign board at the targets cleaned up.

Participating were:
Team Leader Lynda Bouley
Chad Bouley
Cheresa and her brother
Jeff Bosek
Kaisa Bosek
Stormy Hegg
Emma Reineke
Elizabeth Guthrie
Hanne Guthrie
Jill Troutner
Cam Christiansen

If I missed someone, our thanks go to you as well, my memory isnt what it
once was…or what I think it once was. . 🙂 Dave, there are 3 1/4 buckets
of lead in the garage. And the two garbage containers at the range are
full–mixed bag–some of it is probably recyclable. And we did not seal the
range pavement where the graffiti was sprayed. It was painted over, but
still shows through. Thank you and Elk River for all the materials, disposal
and future work. And thank your mowing crew for keeping the place looking
respectable!!

Reminder for anyone–the bravo target on #6 lost part of a plate today.
Spares are in the building and Guthries will weld the old one back together.

Thanks again to everyone!
Bill Meyer, Coach
