Bald Eagles Work and Shooting Party

Registration is closed

We have a work party planned for the George Tubb range at the Whittington Center in Raton, NM.  The dates are April 27 to May 4, 2022.  We plan to rebuild all 100 target carriers, the first overhaul since the range was built 35 years ago.  The carriers each use 16 2” casters to run the targets up and down.  The current casters and cables are wearing out and this makes the targets more difficult to operate.  Sometimes the carriers will pop out of place and jam, not a good thing during competition. 

The party is not all about work, there will be shooting available, too.  Basically, for every hour worked, we’ll get an hour of shooting.  Also, anybody bringing an RV can camp with full hookups for free!  If you don’t have an RV, you’ll get free lodging in the Competitor Housing.  If you’ve ever wanted to shoot this range for practice or experimentation, this is your chance. 

If you’re interested, please register.  We are looking for 20-30 people. This effort was scheduled to straddle a weekend to allow working folks to come and conserve their vacation time.  It’s not required to come for the whole week.  So, as you’re planning your shooting schedule for next year, please include this work/shooting party!
