Additional Range Information:
-Range bathrooms are now open for use.
-Board members are looking into getting rules signs to display at our practice range, 3D range, broad head pit, and club house.
- Broad head pit is the only location on the range that broad heads can be used. Please do not shoot targets on the practice range, 3D range, hunter range, or field range with broadheads.
-The Marathon that goes by the range on April 4th and 5th will not be using the range as expected due to the construction issues. Still expect access to the range to be difficult during the event as runners and chase vehicles will be using that road over the mountain
-Mountain Springs fire department was given a tour of the range to assess the future potential for fire danger. There was multiple areas of concern and they are now contacting the forest service to address the need to allow Las Vegas Archers to maintain and clear away these highly flammable objects.
Additional Club Information:
- We are in need of a volunteer for the Secretary position to help with paperwork and Tournament Director to help with coordinating tournaments.
-Jim Marshal has joined the advisory board for Mountain Springs to give Las Vegas Archers a presence in the community and establish a lasting relation with this community.
-Several members of the Mountain Spring Community and neighbors to our range have requested permission to use the property for a Big Horn Music Festival in May. In exchange they are willing to help with maintenance such as leveling roads and parking and access trails. No vote was taken on this item.
