2022 Spring Rifle Range Clean-Up
Saturday June 4 10am - 2pm
Dear DFG Club Members,
I would like to thank all Club members that came today to help with our annual cleaning. Many thanks! I deeply appreciate your commitment to maintaining and improving our range. The range is a community resource and without your help it simply would not exist. It took longer than anticipated, almost until 3pm to carry out planned work. You can see pictures from our Clean-Up below.
We have accomplished almost all what was planned, except
building a portable target table. However, thank to one of our
members we have some lumber leftovers on the range (on the right end
of firing line), so it can be built anytime.

Now that the trash is removed hopefully we will be able to mow the range. Grass is tall now and needs mowing, but as of today the area around the creek is very wet so the tractor won't make it to the other side. Hopefully it will dry out soon.
Again: thank you very much for your support. Let's make sure the range stays in the best possible condition!
Dear DFG Club Members,
It is time for our annual Rifle Range Clean-Up! I have collected responses and it looks like the date that most members can come and help is Saturday June 4th at 10am.
Our 2022 annual Rifle Range Clean-Up is Saturday June 4th at 10am. Please consider coming!
This year the range is in relatively good shape, but we still have quite a bit of work to do. Here is the list of tasks I would like to propose for this year. Please let me know if you would like to add, change, or modify the list.
There will be a lot of debris and trash to haul away. Please let me know if you have a truck registered in Tompkins Solid Waste Center, I may need help hauling the trash there, some may not fit into my SUV or to Club's trash container. I will of course pay all the fees for the trash.
It would be extremely helpful to have some extra tools and materials. We will need leaf rakes, regular rakes, and a broom for cleaning. It would be helpful to have extra cordless drills with screwdriver bits to work on portable targets and hanging rubber flaps. We will also need 1" steel pipes and a tool to drive them into the ground. Please let me know if you can bring any.
Several of plastic trash buckets are in bad shape or missing - if you have a plastic bucket you don't need, please bring it to the range - the goal is to have one per bench, if possible, to minimize trash spilling over the ground. The best are about 5gal pales/buckets, but anything in similar size is good.
I will send you an e-mail reminder few days before the date.
