    True, but Google Maps says the drive to Stevenson would be a half-hour less each way.

    I'll be there. Enjoy using the range. It's going to be closed down for good soon.

    I was at the range last weekend and i saw two signs posted at the fork ash lake rd/blue lake rd and at the entrance"range closed Aug. 1" curious if this will effect the event?

    I just sent an e-mail to the Appleseed folks to get us some 411 on the range closure issues. I'd hate to get up there to find that we've been shut out.

    Does ANYONE have the contact info for the Cascade Sportsman's Club? I'd like to call them up as well.

    I just got this e-mail from the pres. of the Cascade Sportsman's Club. Looks like the event might be a no-go. I can't imagine the Appleseed folks pulling together an alternate site on such short notice.

    Jeff,

    This is WD, Vikki's husband and the president of the Cascade Sportsman's Club. The Blue lake Range is being closed August 1st, it will be gated and locked. This is permenent, the range will not be reopened.

    I do not know what plans the Apple Seed group has, you will have to contact on of thier people.

    Damn. I was really looking forward to it. I posted the content of the e-mail on the Appleseed forum. We'll see what happens.

    Yeah! I saw that on their FB page, so I'm at least happy about that. If all else fails, I'll sign up the the September event!

    Here's the reply I received from the Appleseed Rep:

    Brian,

    I am working on the situation with the Blue Lake Pit Range. I am in contact with the WA State DNR and Skamania County to see if we can have our shoot. There is another instructor who is working with me on a contingency plan to secure another range in the area if Stevenson falls through.

    Please be patient. I will keep everyone posted as I get more information. This situation came to my attention earlier this week and we are busy working on resolving it.

    Regards,

    George

    *UPDATE 7/22/12*

    This is from the Appleseed forum:

    07-22-2012 Update

    Things are not looking good for the event to be held at the Blue Lake Pit Range. Washington Dept. of Natural Resources told me to call Skamania County engineering. Skamania County engineering isn't returning my calls.

    So we are working on plan B - hold the shoot at the same time, but at a different location. Currently we are talking with the owner of the "Woodstock Range" (located in Castle Rock, WA) to hold the event there. We need to get the paperwork filled out then we will notify the shooters of the change in venue. To get Woodstock back online we will need to have a range clean-up day before the weekend of August 4-5.

    I will keep you posted as I find out more information. Thank you for your patience.
