This event is coming together real well! Lots of support from community vendors all over Central Oregon, the USFS and even Deschutes Co. Sheriff's office!

We really need local, responsible, shooters to attend. It's how we start to make a difference in recreational shooting on public lands. It's how we save our places to shoot by showing the managing agency we care enough to give back and get involved.

Last year, the shooting area at the McKenzie Pit was closed due to irresponsible shooting (not using backstops, bullets flying off into the wild blue yonder and shooting too close to nearby trails (130 yards away!). The sheriff's dept was called in to help evaluate the shooting area and it was determined to be unsafe, because of how too many people were shooting.

Now, if you look at the map, you'll see the Zimmerman Pit only about 3 1/2 miles to Sisters and less than that to near by residential areas. Then think of how far some bullets can go! People who shoot on public lands really need to be totally aware of using a backstop and give serious consideration as to where the bullet will end.

We can save it if we show up to show we care. If only 5 or 6 of us attend, we won't have much of an impact to the USFS!

Hope you can attend!

Bill
