It’s with great sorrow that we report that club member, and former board member, Geoff Roehrs passed away on Saturday evening, July 14th.
Geoff was a good friend of the club and was a part of the team that put together the Liam Nevins shoot in April which supports the Special Operations Warrior Fund.
Geoff will be missed.
The family says there are no plans for immediate services but they are working on a Celebration of Life for later this month.
Thank you to all that braved the storms, waited out the lightning, and then dealt with the heat.

If you didn’t make it out to the Birthday shoot, we still have some challenge coins available.
Pick one up at the front desk for $5.
The Summer League is a fun shoot where each shooter shoots up to 12; 50 bird scored rounds. Their top 8 rounds are used to determine their League score. There is no additional cost to be in the summer league.
Similar to golf, shooters earn a handicap to be awarded extra targets. A shooters handicap is their ATA average or their first 4 scored rounds.
Once a shooters handicap is established, they can shoot any Tuesday or Sunday till the end of August. Scored rounds can also be ATA Big 50’s or Green Bird.
If the shooter has a handicap below 95% (47.5 targets out of 50) they will be awarded targets for the next score. This rewards a shooter’s improvement.
