No Target Pullers!

22 Jul 2017 12:17 PM | Leo Cebula (Administrator)


It seems that there are no able bodied persons in Raton who are willing to pull targets for the Spirit of America matches.  Despite the going rate of $20 per shooter per target ($60 to $80 per day) no volunteers could be found.  So on the entry form ignore the question "Do you want a paid puller?"  It's not going to happen.  On the other hand, if you have a family member who would like to make some money, we will try to fit them in.  It would be nice if the people who work to put on the match and who also shoot the match could have a paid puller.  This frees them up to be radio operators, scorers, assistant range officers, etc.  The Club will hire at least one and maybe two.


If you are coming to the Spirit of America and if you have certain talents like driving a 54 passenger bus or the port-a-pottie truck, we need your services.  Every pit change needs a bus driver and every yard line change needs a truck driver.  Please speak up when you get to the range.  

Also, if you volunteer to help with the match, like the guys who come a day early to paste targets, or help in other ways, you are automatically invited to a volunteer dinner usually held later in the week.  Last year we went to the "Cold Beer Tavern" 18 miles west of the Whittington Center for BBQ and all the trimmings.
