First the good news, the gate is functioning as it should, automatically opening on exit, for now at least. We are working on a permanent repair for the issue.

Over the next few weeks there will be a couple major projects. First there will be concrete paving beginning this week, weather permitting, on the driveway approach, from the road extending past the gate by about 50 feet. The facility will remain accessible throughout the duration of this project but there will be some inconveniences. One half the drive will be closed at a time, the closings will last approximately 1 week for each side. During the time the card reader is not usable members will have to use the west half of the drive. To make things easier we will not have a lock on the gate, just a clip on the chain.

This will be a day dedicated to projects across the entire facility. We generally use this time to catch up on things that may have gone unattended over the winter months like trash collection, repairing and rebuilding target stands, grounds care and general cleanup on and around our property. Please bring tools that might be needed if you can, i.e. rakes, shovels, power tools, etc.. If there are any particular projects you are interested in helping with please share them by commenting below and we will do everything possible to provide what is needed to facilitate them. The one thing we ask is that along with your ideas of what needs done, you provide solutions on how to do it.

We are planning some weeknight work sessions, like one per month, throughout the rest of the year. Please use the poll below to share your opinion on this idea.

Winter is here and the snow is starting to pile up. Why not spend some time getting to know your fellow Ikes members over a good meal. This will be a evening of relaxation and conversation to celebrate the start of a new year. We will get things started at 5pm with a short message about what is going on in 2016 and dinner served at 5:30pm.

This event is open to members and perspective members, and will be held in the Ikes chapter house.

Afterward there will be cards, conversation and fellowship.

The meal will be roast pork, baked beans and other sides.
