Message from the President

Dear Fellow Members,

Important: Our April 2nd meeting is canceled and is RESCHEDULED for Sunday April 7th

Looks like Spring and daylight savings time is here, hopefully the cold wet winter has past, we need dry weather to keep the Range construction on track – occasional rain is ok to keep dust down.
I want to thank our members that attended our Annual Corned Beef and Cabbage / Trophy Awards dinner March 16th, especially Dorothy Bayer, Dorothy Finely, Ron McCurry and all the members that spent many hours preparing the meal for our annual event. I especially want to thank Gary LeRoy for his yearlong (and decades of) dedication to our annual BP Trophy awards – documenting all our members’ entries, getting chevrons made for members and a great awards ceremony in true Gary style, all winners are listed below in the meeting minutes, I wish more members could have attended to enjoy the dinner and awards presentation.  Dorothy Bayer tried a new recipe for corned beef that was enjoyed by all, all the meat was slow cooked (7hrs plus) in crock pots with two bottles of Guinness beer per crock pot St Patrick would approve. The meat was very tasty and so tender you could cut it with a fork.

Our next club meeting has been
RESCHEDULED for Sunday April 7th at 6pm
*** Tuesday April 2nd MEETING is
CANCELED***

This is our Chili cook-off and cornbread dinner, members are encouraged to participate with a Chili or cornbread entry. As in the past there are three classes: MILD CHILI, SPICEY CHILI AND CORNBREAD. Safeway gift cards will be awarded as prizes. Members not participating in the cooking Completion are encouraged to bring salads, sides or dessert to share.  shooting before the meeting from 5 to 6 p.m.

Bay Point skeet league is starting up on April 18th and 23rd, anyone on a Monday or Thursday team from last year please contact your team captain about this year’s squads, there are 40 shooters on either night, there will be openings. If any shooters want to join the fun on either night contact me. Check the BP website for more info.

R&P Range update:  Our excavation contractor- Diablo General officially started moving dirt on the Rifle and Pistol Range March 18th.  They started doing the underground work for the storm sewers and any associated underground work. They expect to start moving dirt to elevate the range for shooting sheds and range office the first week of April. Six contacts have been agreed to and signed with excavation/grading, concrete, steel fabrication, masonry, electrical and plumbing contractors. We have more contractors to consider and review, but the six we have contacted with are our core contractors to get us up and out of the ground. What we need now is much less rain to keep the project moving with no weather delays.

Multi-Purpose Range: The MPR is getting more and more use. The range is open Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays during regular business hours, check the USI website for updates or call clubhouse. Check-in at the clubhouse office to pay your fees and to have your safety-card checked, then proceed to the MPR, where the RSO will assign a shooting bench. Please come out and shoot 22’s. 22 LR rim-fire ONLY
