Potential new long distance range Cass County-needs help!
« on: October 03, 2011, 05:10:54 PM »
A man is trying to put in a new long distance range in Cass county. Told by the Cass County zoning board it would be "no big deal", and you have to know Cass to understand this, it should have been a warning. At the zoning hearing about 60 rabid anti-range people materialized. I've spoken to one of the business partners involved this morning, she called me. They are absolutely open to having appleseeds there, this would be a new venue potential! But they need people to show up at the next hearing in favor of it. The next hearing is Weds. Oct. 5th at 0900 at the old Cass Co. courthouse at 102 E Wall St. in Harrisonville, MO on the 2nd floor. One of the complaints was "a 30-06 bullet could travel seven miles and strike a home." Along with disrupting the natural habitat of the timber rattlers....seriously.
So, if anyone has time and could come, it's 0900 Weds. morning. A new appleseed for Cass! whoo!
'scuse me, I've got to go saddle Star and round up folks!

Sebal,

I'm afraid I can't make it on the 5th.  You might want to contact Fred for advice on how to handle the meeting.  Something tells me he could offer some good advice.

A properly constructed range, situated on an appropriate piece of land, and manned by trained safety conscious instructors is safer than a gravel truck barreling down a country road at 45 miles per hour.  Last time I looked Cass county still has a lot of unpaved roads.

BTW, I PMed you on another subject.  Let me know what you think.

A PM to the RWVA Regional Coordinator would not hurt either.

Well, the owner backed down from the fight. And, it may not be suitable for a long distance range, BUT they owner is still very much open to the idea of holding appleseed there! So we may end up getting a new place to shoot an appleseed after all!

Excellent. O0  I lived in Cass County for 18 years.  Where is the potential range (general vicinity)?

Sebal,

Thanks for posting this. That's to bad that he won't end up with the long distance range. If you want to PM me with this fellows contact info I'll see what we can work out as far as hosting AS there.     Ian
