    To those who requested a PDF flier of this event; I just updated a new one and sent it to your email. It's the one that is labeled #2. Now has the QR code and a couple of enhancements.

    Check your email and delete the first one!

    Thanks,

    Memaloose Rd is still closed at this time, however, they are close to opening it again. They need some final testing and an 'All Clear' stamp of approval.

    If Memaloose Rd opens on or before July 23rd, we'll move the meeting place and event there. We'll give plenty of notice and you won't miss the direction signs pointing the way. Let's keep our fingers crossed in hopes of opening soon!

    Yeah, before I got my gun club membership I was always at Memaloose rock pit. My favorite spot...but it was always trashed. Hopefully i'm not scheduled to work that day. And I wonder if there are any fishing spots nearby. :D
