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

Cleanup day at Elk River – June 4th at Noon

Good Morning Everyone,

On Sunday, June 4th [next Sunday] at noon, we will have a cleanup/maintenance day at Elk River. The venue was the target [again] of vandals a few weeks ago. From that perspective we will no longer store any target paint in the building.

We will meet in the parking lot and figure out transportation to the venue from there. Lynda/Chad/Dave perhaps we could get vehicle passes for the main equipment/supplies vehicle?
You should come prepared to get dirty with paint clothes and old shoes. Paint brushes, rollers etc would be useful. Gloves for sure.

After the work party we will have a roller ski/combo practice to take advantage of the trip to the venue.

If you can’t make it, I would suggest each outlying venue hold its own work party and clean up your own range. Mowing, cleaning target boards, repairing anything and everything..lot of things can be accomplished if many hands pitch in.

For Elk River I have the following indicate intentions of participation:
Guthries –Hanne, Elizabeth and ?/
Bouley’s—5 or 6
Bosek—Jeff, Kaisa, Ryker
Alex—perhaps some others [Reineke, Hegg etc.]
Bill

Hope that helps with planning. On supplies, Dave Anderson, can you provide what we need? Lynda has the list.

Thanks all,
Bill Meyer
