There have been a few changes of responsibility within our Chapter. I have accepted the Outdoor Ethics (Range Safety) Chair, a change that will enable Don Nelson, the previous Outdoor Ethics Chair, to focus on the the Scholastic Trap Program which has seen incredible growth.
Keep an eye on this site for upcoming details on the future of the Facilities Coordinator position. Until then, if there is anything you need related to facilities you can contact me at email@example.com , or any other board member.
Just over 2 weeks ago you may have noticed a major change in our website as we upgraded to new software. Due to a number of issues with that software I was working in parallel on this newer version of the website to address them. I hope the back-to-back changes don't throw too many of you off, both versions of the new website are very similar in layout and content, but if you think something is missing please let me know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you registered for an account I apologize but there was no way to migrate users directly, so I would ask that you do so again and apologize for the inconvenience.
The USPSA match is on for this Saturday. That being said, Scott & I will be paying close attention to the weather and range conditions and if things look unsafe or if it looks like we will damage the range with use, we will have to call the match off. But the weather looks great for this weekend, and we should even get some freezing action over night to keep the ground solid.
The match will have a winter start time with:
- Set up beginning at - 8:30
- Registration - 9:30
- Match begins - When set up is complete (around 10:00)
Because of the snow and ice, the match is going to focus on fundamentals, with a limited amount of movement. But don't let that fool you, we have a couple COF that should be fun and a great way to test some skills and put some rounds down range.
It may be cold outside but that doesn't stop the 4H Hot Shots from getting together out at the range. Today they build two more shooting benches and donated them to the Ankeny Ikes! Next time you see them out say thanks!
Check out the new Flag flying over the Chapterhouse. After a winter of nasty winds and weather it was high time to get Old Glory back up. If you look closely you will also see the new flag light that will keep her lit up at night. The old "flag lights" did a get job of lighting up the base of the flag pole but couldn't be made to point upward.
