Storage Building Clean-out, Saturday 6/23

The Wooden Storage Buildings are going away!
A work party is schedule for Saturday June 23 to clean them out. We want to beat the heat so the workday will start at 7:30.  Some will come earlier…some will come later.
Everything in the three buildings and the container will be evaluated… either save or throw away.
Following the work day and for one week thereafter, all disposed of items will be outside the container.. free for any member who wants them…first come…first serve. After that, it all goes to the dump.
We need to reduce our current 650 sq ft storage down to 160 sq ft of temporary storage. We will be disposing some of our lesser quality 3d targets, inoperable equipment, and assorted muckets.
So plan on coming to participate in this epic event.

While there are many individual tasks that need to be completed on the range, there will be very few formal workdays between now and the deadline. Therefore, consider asking for an individual task which you can complete at your convenience to receive workday credits.

We have a list of tasks posted on the Bowmen’s Clubhouse wall, including post holes which need to be dug, signs to erect, target enclosures to be painted, and carpentry work on twenty target enclosures.
