Thanks to everyone who helped at the KSC Gun Show. There was a nice display of firearms, unfortunately the attendance was down this year versus previous years.

April 28th Work Bee accomplished repairing the backstops and pistol steel boxes and general cleanup in preparation of Hunters Ed. Regrettably, not enough volunteers showed up to complete all of the tasks at hand. Remaining tasks are: cleaning the range bathroom, lead and brass taken to scrap yard, club house kitchen cabinets need cleaning and the garage needs cleaning. If you are able to help with any of these items please contact Ted Hentschel.
