*** Palmetto Gun Club UPCOMING RANGE CLOSURE ***

 **PGC UPCOMING RANGE CLOSURE **

THE RANGE WILL BE CLOSED BEGINNING MARCH 27th FOR THE BERM IMPROVEMENT PROJECT.

We expect to reopen mid to late July.  The more club member volunteers helping, especially in July, the sooner we will reopen.

The contractor will be starting on April 1st.  The club needs to do a ton of work before they start.  Everything must be moved out of the pistol bays, including removal of a number of pistol bay shelters.  The three cowboy connexes need to be moved.   The jail and saloon need to be moved or taken down.  All the rifle line target frames taken down.  The gate to the rifle line removed, etc., etc.  Please come out to help!!!  We will be working March 27-31 or until everything is ready for the contractor.  Hopefully with enough manpower we can get it done in just a few days.

Also, during this closure a lot of member manpower will be needed to complete other improvement projects such as new plumbing and electrical lines; plus there will be the normal mowing and maintenance.  In July the new pistol bay shelters will need to be built, the covered firing line on the new 50 yard bay, new target frames for the 200 yard berm, new target frames at 300, 600 and 800 yards on the long line, and the list goes on.

WE WILL NEED HELP GETTING ALL THIS FINISHED! PLEASE let us know if you would like to help . we need all the help we can get to get the club back up and running once the berm work is done in July.

NOTE:
Once project work begins April 1, only contractor employees and PGC members cleared by the Exec RO will be allowed on-site!

NO visitors are allowed!
Please watch for email notices about workdays, and progress reports in the Bullseye and on the website.

Thank you all for your patience as we do these essential safety and other improvements.
