More progress to report. Cribbing is close to done. Existing benches will have extensions welded to legs as they are getting a bit short! Pour will be on Tuesday. One more work bee on Saturday to do the finishing touches to the roof and elsewhere.

Can't thank the club enough for all the support and the volunteers as well. This will be an absolutely first rate firing line.

Wow,
This is without a doubt going to be the best benchrest range in all of western Canada. Lots of hard work by all the volunteers certainly has paid off.

Cannot wait to see the place next year.
That is the way you do a range upgrade.  Set minds that think alike to work and get at it.
Congrats guys and congrats to ALL of you who have donated countless hours to the project.
I just may have to see how friendly Westjet  will be and fly from Brandon to Calgary to shoot........

Well I will put it to you this way.........

If I could find a 2 bedroom apartment in a 4 or 6 plex that is 12 years old
good neighbors
and costs 765.00 per month
and a job that pays a poor mans Manitoba wage of 70G notes a year I may consider it.
Oh and a population of approx 50,000 and no more than 2 hours from Calgary

I may.........

I am not asking for much

Oh and a pension plan, benefits, 40 hour work week, Double time for OT

I am not asking for much am I.......

Pretty sure a 50 year old telephone guy is not going to find that in AB....

LOL
