E-mail Print PDF

 

****************************************************************************************************]

JAN 31 2017 The shoothouse is almost finished, just a few more things, and it will be usable this year. I will need several volunteers to help me finish this project. Please see BB for further details.

We should be able to use this after dark with the led lites I want to install. if anyone has any airsoft for force on force, please let me know (BB)

*****************************************************************************************************

SEPT 09 / 2014  The floor and the front was finished on this Saturday and it looks great, Thanks for all of those that helped, (Frank, Larry, Sharon, Cody,Sandy,Rob,Ryan,Adam, hope I didn't forget anyone) Thanks to all of you.  We got all of the coraplas and shoot house wall parts in the shoot house now and need several more items moved to complete it. I will keep you informed to the progress. Thanks BBird

 

SEPT 2014  Fall is on the way, we will be trying to get the house up and running for this fall. The automation probably won't

be this year, but we will use static targets.  I still need some people power to finish ( see Bill for dates)

off the shoot house, making walls, hanging motors and rails, smoothing out the floor.

The drainage is complete, the grass is in and grew app 4 inches b4 winter. The ground is soft now from the rain.

 

Aug 17, 2014 we had a work party out and there were 13 of us setting posts, making door frame, installing siding, leveling parts of

the floor.  I still need to move all of the portable house parts over to the range. I also need another day with your help to

finish.

To all of you that helped, Guy, Marty, John, Ryan, Larry, Frank, Sandy, Will, Mike, Sarah, Heather, I want to THANK YOU

personally for your due diligence in the heat and rain showers!! Thanks for your help.

November 2013  We have finished the drainage and grass is planted, the hillsides are retainer from most erosion this winter.

I've got most of the upper framing done and will need some help with the walls, floor and possibly a ballistic wall.

**NOTE** this area is closed to all shooting for now, please keep all vehicles out of this area.

Pics to follow soon see ya in the spring

****************************************************************************************************

July 2013  The shoot house is coming along just fine at this time, its 30 x 30 with the possibility of 18 rooms after the portable walls are built.

For now i expect the range will be closed for another week, (if it doesn't stop raining it will be longer) before Range #1 will be usable.

This project may take 3 more weeks  if its to wet to work.

My thoughts at this time are that we take all of our portable shoot house parts and build an operational shoot house, once we are done  with the final grade excavation.

I have plans for 6 radio controlled targets, that will be hung from the ceiling, so they HOPEFULLY won't be shot!!

There will be a foul line @ 7' for Muzzle height restriction, and we will always obey the 180' rule.

More to come on the progress.  Check it out when your @ greenport.

Best regards,

Caretaker
