Rifle Range Notes:
7/17/14 Rifle Range
This summer the new tractor had a throttle problem that made the mowing on the rifle range difficult. We apologize for the tall grass and not keeping up with the target boards. The tractor is repaired thanks to Greg Hackett and the range looks better. If you do come to the rifle range and see the trash cans full, don’t be afraid to load them on your truck and run them over to the dumpster at the club and empty them. Remember to fill out your range sheets and turn them in when done regaurdless if you have to pay or you are yearly. The more the members that use the facility help the better the club looks to all of us.
7/17/14 Pistol Bay
The new pistol bay is complete and the signs will be up soon. The roof is designed to stop bullets from going over the berm not to stand under to stay dry. Shooting is from back of the bench area with the roof in front of you. Please pickup your brass and dispose of it proper. Help keep this area clean. Remember always point you pistol down range in a safe direction and show clear for others on the range when going down to the targets. Any suggestions you have please write them on the back of the range envelopes. I am always looking for ideas to make improvements.
Current Pathfinder members access the Range through the Cresent Road Gate. Do not use the maintenance trail.

We had two major events this year hosted at Pathfinder; the Area 7 Championship in August and the Glock Shooting Sports match in July. Both were a big success. The Area 7 received a big write-up in both Syracuse and Fulton newspapers. Good positive press for our club and the good things we do in the community.
