CCFSA needs our help - 500 YD range possible!
« on: June 18, 2019, 12:08:14 AM »
Clinton County Farmers and Sportsmen Association in Wilmington, OH has the opportunity to purchase about 80 acres of land that will allow them to build a 500 YD rifle range. They absolutely love AS and we love them for hosting 4 to 5 shoots per year free of obligation.

This place is the real deal for the program and this land will set them up as a premier shooting facility in the midwest. The only issue is they need help raising funds and they need it NOW! They have until the end of June to raise the downpayment of $100,000. They have generated over 50K in a few short weeks but time is running out.

Please consider a donation. Every bit can help. And if anyone has the resources to be an Angel please PM me or contact Rich Nolde, President of the club, directly. Rich239@live.com

They have set up a Go Fund Me page https://www.gofundme.com/ccfsa-property-purchase

Check it out for an arial view of the land and thanks for your consideration.

Update on CCFSA property purchase. The club has successfully raised the downpayment necessary for the purchase of the nearly 80 additional acres and plan on closing on the deal August 28th. Say a prayer, cross your finger and shout a victory volley!
