Looking for a Few to Form a Publicity Committee

If you are talented in writing Press Releases, coordinating with the Chamber of Commerce, visiting local vendors and distributing Rack Cards and Business Cards, your talent is needed. The Publicity Committee will be on hiatus over the winter, but will hit the road this Spring to make known the best outdoor shooting range in the White Mountains.

Please consider and contact Linda Gilbertson at 928-521-4821 or ladiesdayllc@gmail.com.

Improvements Went On During Range Closure Last Year

Game and Fish continued to support WMSA and the Second Knoll Target range, even during last year’s closure. As many of you know, the road to the range, and the roads inside the fence, have not always been what we want them to be. So the G&F Development Branch sent their Heavy Equipment group to improve the situation. Jack, Jed, and Dan worked hard at it, and after just a few hours there was noticeable improvement on the road.

Using a loader, grader, and truck, they reshaped the road in to the range from US 60, so it sheds water and alleviates getting muddy in the wet season. They topped the road with cinders from the pile at the range. They also added cinder to the parking lots behind the 50 & 100 yard ranges, while creating more parking space on the East side. This should eliminate the mud issues we’ve had in the past.

We appreciate their hard work and improvements they made.

Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest Article on Second Knoll Target Range

Target shooting can be a fun and rewarding activity for the whole family and a great way to enjoy our public lands. As fire season progresses and the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest moves into Stage II fire restrictions, opportunities for dispersed target shooting become limited. Fortunately there is a great facility for target shooting located on the National Forest that remains open despite the restrictions. . . .
