Water, Water, Nowhere...

The pump in the irrigation well burned up, and the derrick that attempted to pull the pump wasn't up to the job. Luckily, Picatti's outfit was in the orchard above the range and they had no trouble pulling the pipe and pump more than three hundred feet. We're hoping the costs will come in under fifteen thousand dollars, and we owe the board of directors a big "Thank You" because we have the funds in the bank to cover the job.

President's Message

Kerry Jorgensen has resigned from the board, and Sun Valley Shooting Park owes him for his dedication and time for the past several years. He served as president through some tumultous years, and for that we especially owe him.

The tractor has been stripped of the bucket and the forks as well as the forks that fit on the rear, and that equipment will be sold. Neither the bucket nor the forks ever worked well, and front tires continually went flat because of the extra weight. Steve Simon will soon have the three-point hitch again working so we can mow weeds.

Wednesdays are reserved for members only, but by appointment. Please phone ahead (576-0866) and leave a message on the recorder since no one will be monitoring the clubhouse on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Wednesday morning, the rangemaster will check the messages and call you if the range you wish to shoot on is closed that day for maintenance.

Jim Pearson, president, Sun Valley Shooting Park
