    Thus far Sunday is looking like the more available day for folks.

    ODF has options for trash removal, Saturday we can take it straight to the transfer station in Forest Grove and or utilize the dumpsters at Reeher's Camp.

    Sunday would be Reeher's Camp.

    I just posted it to the Trash No Land Facebook page for Sunday (thought it was a done deal for Sunday). Let me know quick if it changes!

    Anyone have a truck available?

    We will need one persons truck to haul the trash to Reeher’s Camp afterwards.

    So, I ended up nearly slicing off half of a finger tip today at work, my damn trigger finger in fact. I'll keep an eye on it, but I may have to miss this weekend's clean-up because it's my trigger finger, duh :)

    "Any time now" came today! I received the official word from the NRA Foundation. They have awarded us the full amount as requested and as recommended by the Oregon Friends of the NRA! $10, 223.53 Check is in the mail!!!

    Next will be meetings with Bryan, Aaron, Randy and myself as we fine tune these plans and draw up a timeline. We'll let you all know what those plans are, dates and when we need volunteers. Yes, we're counting on some volunteer help to implement and finish this, however, some of it may be contracted out.

    The end goal is to make these Wolf Creek Lanes last a good long time without major improvements. We'll always need to do routine maintenance at these sites but the work we're proposing to do now will help make these lanes more sustainable and nicer to use for ongoing quality recreation.

    In an effort to thwart any misconceived notions, none of us are paid. We all volunteer 100% of our time, (and a few of our own dollars), to help improve recreational shooting for all of you who partake in the shooting sports. We're glad to do it because it helps all of us in our attempts to;
    • overcome the stigma of gun owners,
    • preserves our privilege to shoot on public lands,
    • keeps shooting places open,
    • develops a recreational community of gun owners,
    • opens doors for more lane improvements.

    This grant, and these shooting lanes at North Fork Wolf Creek, are just a start. More lanes are in the works. More good is to come from this. We need you to join our movement and help promote responsible recreational shooting throughout the Northwest!

    Thanks All,

    Bill

    Awesome news and amazing things are heading to North Fork Wolf Creek!

    Let's not forget we are going to work on getting them cleaned up this weekend too. Sunday is the day, 9:00am. We can talk about the grant approval and plans then for those that are interested in hearing about the proposed improvements that now can become a reality.

    Thank you, Mr. bolus!

    I knew you'd be happy to see good things happen to a place you helped develop. Wish you were here to go use them! Let us know when you come to visit and we'll throw a party at the lanes in your honor! (Kind of like a Celebrity Roast, where you are the target!!!) :eek:

    That is great, great news! I'm in for the work party once the plans are finalized.

    I have a truck, trailer and tools so if we need to haul something up to the site, or back down the hill, I can help with that as well.

    Woohoo!

    Cool, SA! Thanks for the offer!

    Would you, the truck and trailer be available this Sunday for help with the cleanup?

    Question about the cleanup - is there a bottom age limit? If not, I may bring the kiddo along to introduce him to some civic work. He's 7. Otherwise I'll see if Grandma can watch him for a while.
