Meet the Board

Welcome to Our Shooting Family

My name is Linda Gilbertson, and I am your current President. Our prior President Brenda Silva has accepted an appointment to the Olympic Center in Colorado Springs, CO. She will be managing the pistol and rifle Paralympic teams. She will remain on the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity.

My husband Seth Nadel and I have been a part of the White Mountain Shooters Assoc., Inc., since its inception in 2007. Seth and I, along with JoAnn and Bill Weldon, Bill Faurot and Arizona Game & Fish were instrumental in the building of the Second Knoll Target Range within the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.

Second Knoll Target Range is a unique facility. We are the only shooting facility in a national forest in the United States. We are viewed as a model for other federal lands that seek to establish shooting facilities. Your Board of Directors are looking forward to continuing to maintain and improve Second Knoll for the many shooting disciplines. We currently offer eight different shooting clubs.

You are welcome to attend the board meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 6pm at the Show Low Senior Center.
