Gee. I hope someone comes to help me eat this stuff!

Lots of food.jpg
Croissonwich sandwiches and wraps.
Fridge tonight & coolers in the morning.

Getting hot coffee for the morning meeting and will have donuts & muffins. I'd say we're eating darn pretty good! (It's 'cause I appreciate volunteers and I got a little bit of 'hospitality' blood in me!).

See y'all at 9.

I plan on being there!
 
Aww man! Wish I could be there to help out with that food :D

Seriously though, that's top notch and I'm sorry I couldn't make it to help clean up on this one :(
 
We rocked it today! All aspects accomplished! Total of 880 pounds removed from the lanes (including a few pounds from further up Wolf Creek Rd).

We had about 25 volunteers (I haven't counted them yet, and some didn't fill out the sign-in sheet, but roughly 25ish). We could probably add at least 10 others who actively cleaned up the lanes for the past 2 weeks! Especially grateful for whoever cleaned the dump site off the edge of lane 4!

All lanes now look real nice! We paint covered the graffiti from all Jersey Barriers (on both sides), pressure washed graffiti from most of the boulders (but I ran out of my 30 gallons of water, so there's a couple rocks that didn't get done. Minor ones however.), and all kiosk boards now have new signage.

I had enough food for 60 to 80 people, so I donated the excess to nearby neighbors. Most are limited income on social security, so it was greatly appreciated. The Salvation Army Food Bank was closed when I got home.

It was a nice, easy-going day and everyone enjoyed their time. We got done about 11:30 thanks to the pre-cleanup volunteers.

Thanks to all who came out today! Sure great to see you all again!

The day started with disappointment and frustration for some.

I arrived about 6:30 Am and Lane 1 was the only lane open. As I stopped at each lane, I informed all shooters about today's cleanup and we will be closing the lanes from 8:30 to 1. Boy, that didn't settle well with some! But they understood and were accommodating.

Lane 2 was cool with it, as he only had a few more rounds to send down range. Lane 3 was one guy waiting for a group to show up (from Washington) and he wasn't happy about this surprise! Lane 4 had a cool group shooting videos and having a great time, until I showed up, but they figured they could wrap up their fun by 8:30.

Lesson learned... Read the signs! The whole place was well posted about the clean up on May 25th! But hey, no need to read the signs.
Sign, sign
Everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery
Breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that
Can't you read the sign?

Still, all lanes were quiet from 8:30 till noon. All occupants joined in on the cleanup. Geez, I always meet good people at shooting places!
 
Had a great time even if it rained a little. Food was great as always. Place looked great on the way out.
We dropped down to HWY 6 and went to Cedar Butte on the way home. Tracy is getting into rock hounding. There is a big wash that we watched some videos on that has Augite crystals in it. Went to Pacific City and had dinner then went by an ex-coworker/ fishing buddy house that I lost contact with about 15 years ago. Amazingly found his house and he was outside when we drove by his house. We had a great conversation and started to catch up on the last 15 years.
We had a great day.

Damn, looked like a nice time. I hate getting old. Pulled a muscle in a bad place a couple of weeks ago and I'm still recovering from it.
 
I should have known they would be trouble when they started packing their gear up to the line before asking if it was ok to join us. My buddy and I were sighting in some new rifles we tried to get up there early but there was a group at lane 4 at 6:30 no big deal we waited our turn for about 3 hours. When they cleared out we set up and about a hour later these guys showed up. Didn't ask until they were packing their gear up to the lane. I don't mind sharing but people usually ask first. We stop shooting so they can set up targets we have MOA targets set up at 25 and 75 yards to zero in at 100. They shoot up all the clay targets they have out and then start shooting at ours... Strike 2. They break out their shotguns and try their hand at skeet, and I thought I heard one of them say hey check out this dragon's breath and before I can say anything he says PULL and what I saw was one of the dumbest things I've seen an a long time. Words were had and I told my buddy time to go so we started packing up to go. They were told to go check it out and when they did it was to late. They called the fire department and we left to get out of the way of the first responders. My dash cam is always recording so I got them in 4k. In hindsight I should have had a fire extinguisher in my truck that's bad on me, but I don't think it would have help by the time they got up there. I know no one here in this forum needs to hear this but do not use dragon's breath shotgun shells in the forest.

We really don't need this kind of crap!

Do you know of any updates after this?
 
Well he'll!

Thanks for the report and video.

Did fire dept ask how it started? Was ODF notified?
I haven't heard anything about it yet. I was hoping to see something here. My mistake was sharing the lane with them that won't happen again. After this I won't share with strangers. I can control what I and my friends do but not other people.

None of this is your fault, don't worry about controlling what others do, whether you voluntarily share or not, it's never your problem.
 
You have freaking got to be kidding me.

Please tell me you got license plates on video and called the cops.

It seems like every single day I am left stunned at how incredibly stupid and selfish people are. :s0065:

WTF am I seeing here?!?!? These stoopid punk-A*S bastiges are just waltzing around like normal as a plume of smoke is going up in the air? Not even trying to get up there and stomp it out? Mother-effing Jack arses! I sure hope you got the license plate of their vehicle!
Mind Boggling.:mad:

I did something that stupid once with fire. I was 8 years old and smoking a cigarette under some scrub oak with a bunch of tall dry grass around. Luckily no real harm came to any thing/one.

Irresponsible people like those shooting drsgon's breath will get this public use range shut down in a hurry :mad:
 
This type of stuff is why I have a Tri-county membership, and why when I shoot in the woods I go further in and find somewhere more private. Unfortunately, most people suck.
