SPRING IS HERE !!
SPRING IS HERE !!
In a few weeks PCSC will have a Sporting Clay Range to add to the list of benefits of being a member. We owe this latest addition to the dedication of
Ruben Sandoval and his team of Volunteers. Ruben researched products and distributors to get PCSC the best products for the cost and presented all of the information to the Board of Directors at the March Meeting.
On Saturday March 24th Ruben and his team gathered to install a new entrance into the sporting clay course and clean up bush the ice storm created. The 4H originally cleared the trails and built the shooting boxes for their annual Bustin Pumpkins fund raiser event.
THANK YOU Ruben Sandoval, the 4H Program, and all the Volunteers who made this possible!              
If you shoot a shotgun and have not shot Sporting Clays you are in for a treat.  
For Safety sake and complexity of equipment an Orientation will be necessary to obtain access to the new Range. Times and dates of Sporting Clay Course Orientations will be determined and published as soon as possible.
 
Range G Orientations are available on the first Saturday of the month so if you have not given it a try I recommend you do so. It can be a bit challenging, the last time I shot on it I realized I need to practice more but that's part of the fun.
 
PCSC Pistol Matches are a growing success ! Thank You Fred Muller and Jon Kits for heading this up. You guys keep up the good work.
 
PLEASE BE SAFE AT ALL TIMES ESPECIALLY WITH SHOOTING SPORTS!
 
Get out and take advantage of all the fun things PCSC has to offer.

I've got to pass this along from member, Mr. Paul Dillon:

Chuck,
                Could you pass on to the board members that the night shoot for me was and is a great training event.  It has made me realize what I am needing to change on my hand gun and in my shooting technique  I am a firm believer in being prepared as much as possible for the "What if" in life.  The training done by Richard Cookus was outstanding.  He made sure that we understood the situation and the surroundings we might find ourselves in one night.  I have come away from the March night shoot with more confidence in my ability to protect myself and my family.  I look forward to the April night shoot.  Again a BIG THANKS to the board for allowing this to take place.
                                                                                Thanks, Paul Dillon

Thank you, Paul !

Sporting Clays - Ruben Sandoval  Scott McGuffie
This from Ruben:
 
All: Update on the Sporting Clay's Project. We had a good turn out on Saturday and we are making good progress. We cleared paths cleaned up brush and installed new gates. Thanks to the team efforts of Ryan,Scott  bringing Pipe, concrete, and Ryan digging the holes for us And thanks to several members from the Shotgun Group. We are on target to have the Machines there on April 7th for installation. We have Gun Racks built and installed and have most all the supplies we need to get the job completed.

Thank you
Ruben
 
 
This from Scott McGuffie:
 
Many thanks to our volunteers this last Saturday.
We had two priorities : 1) get our new sporting clay range cleaned up and ready for our April 7th delivery of our first 5 stations.
2) reface the 25 yard berm with lead free fill as it had become saturated with shot.
Please allow me to thank the following members,
Thanks to our club president Ryan Donnell ( who doesn't "do" Facebook) for supplying the VERY heavy posts for the new gate and related bollards. He brought out hi...s skid steer and auger. Made it much easier.
But let me pause for the cause and give thanks to Reuben Sandoval and James Taylor for organizing this work day, though it was a couple work weeks for them.

Many thanks and appreciation for the following:
Ryan Donnell
Reuben Sandoval
James Taylor
 
Peter Martin 

Ben Smith

Byron Miller

Larry Baber
Chuck Morris
Carl Fox
Ron Newton
Phil Zehring
 
Thanks,

Parting Shots
Special thanks to Dean Gravatt, Jim Miller and Dan Barnes for helping with cutting and hauling off the one tree cut by the rest room. 
The board is studying possible plan to plant sizeable tree to replace the ones we are having to cut due to oak wilt. Also considering leaving the big triple trunk stump and making a convenience table of it.  Jury is out on that...the tree company may want to remove it and put the new tree right smack there...we'll see.

AND, if you want to be up on what is happening day to day at PCSC then provide your member number to be associated with our PRIVATE Facebook Group. Just search FB for us and ask to join.  We'll get you connected. Scott McGuffie, Ron Woods and others keep things active there. Especially with the Sporting Clays Range in the building stage, timely info will be nice to have. Makes me think back to our PCSC Forum.  This is the same thing...just hosted in a different place...
 

As always, thanks for being a conscientious member.
