4.17.19 URGENT MESSAGE FROM MATCH DIRECTOR:

I am sure that all of you have been watching the weather and hoping for a good weekend of shooting and some of you are aware of the winter that we have had here in central SD. Along with a very long winter and hard work to get the course of fire up for you to shoot last weekend we were dumped on again with 25 inches of very wet and heavy snow. Causing what i thought were set backs until today.

In visiting the range this morning and talking with the land owner that allows us to hold the SDSC portions of the road to get to the range are under 2-4 feet of water and portions of the road are completely gone. Making it impossible to get shooters from the ranch site to the range without a helicopter of which i don’t have or have access to.

I have been in contact with the NRL and we are rescheduling the match for the weekend of August 17-18 with the sight in being on the 16th.

I am sure that this will affect all of you in different ways and I understand that some of you will have significant challenges to deal with. My first best option is that if you are entered and paid that you come the weekend of the Aug 17-18 and shoot the match and have a great time. For those of you that it doesn’t work to reschedule i am willing to work with you to the best of my ability. Please know that I understand any frustration you may have as I am extremely frustrated myself with the situation, but am reminded that unfortunately I cannot control the weather.

___

Please contact Mike Kane, if the new August 16-18 dates do not work for you, and you need to make alternate plans.
