Rifle Range- Jason Myskow: 200 and 300 targets are ready to fall over.  All new targets coming on the 21st.  He is looking for volunteers to help put up the new targets and take off the old.  To get the lock combo to drive up to the range, come out and do orientation or he can do it after the meeting.

Facilities -  Tim Smith:  The work party is on 21st.  There will be painting so don’t wear good clothes.  Dennis is laying carpet on P1 so if you pick up brass, don’t dump it on the carpet, it transfers dirt to the carpet and we want it to last a long time.  Update on access cards: he should have the information next week so hopefully there will be a vote on it at the next meeting.  Report on progress of the handrails:  the stairway from the shotgun range to pistol range is done and being painted.  The ramp and shotgun range will be starting next week, but it will be a couple weeks until it is done.  In Helendale there is a National Night Out.  The last couple of years we have had a booth.  It doesn’t cost anything.  It is on 8/6 if you want to help at the booth.  See Emileigh at the back table to sign up.  There will be an NRA members Council booth there too.  The NRA members Council meets 3rd Tuesday at the Holiday Inn Express in Hesperia.  Tim went over some things that the Council does in the community.  June sign in drawing winner = Carol Thomas.  Tim explained why we do a raffle each month-to encourage proper sign-in!
