Shiocton Updates
« on: April 19, 2011, 04:20:08 PM »
The range work has not yet begun.  The range is currently flooded and closed as it is not accessible due to the high water level.    I was out there today just as the snow was starting to come down.

Any ideas if this will affect the June shoot?
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

We will definitely be impacted.  If they begin construction before the shoot or if the range is still flooded, the range will be closed and we will not be able to hold the shoot there.  The original plan was for construction to begin weeks ago but water has been standing since the first melt.

Hey fepowered, do we have an update on progress at the range. A little over a month out, do we need to start looking for a backup.

It is still flooded and closed.  At this point, a backup would make alot of sense.
