February Steel Match Canceled

Shooters,

Once again, we are not able to have our scheduled Steel Challenge Match on Saturday, February 1, 2020, as the North pistol ranges are still covered with some snow, standing water, and lots of mud. We just aren’t getting the consistent warm temperatures to make much of a difference on that side of the range at this time. However, we did shoot our USPSA match this last month as we only use the South pistol ranges for those matches and they dryout quicker with better direct sunlight. Perhaps, we will luck out again for the February 16, 2020 USPSA match next month? Stay warm and dry!

Regards,

January Steel Challenge CANCELED

Shooters,
Happy New Year To All!  We have lots of snow still lingering on all of our North pistol ranges and several of the South ranges.  The wind has caused many snow drifts to form, 18 inches and more in some places.  This week’s forecasted temps will be in the 30’s with moderate wind which will slow the melting and drying out process for several days/weeks to come.  Therefore, we are cancelling our monthly Steel Challenge match scheduled for January 4, 2020.  Hopefully, the range conditions will improve to allow us to hold our monthly USPSA match scheduled for January 19, 2020.  See you next year!
Regards,
Pat Miller

USPSA 12/15 Canceled

From your Weld County Practical Shooters President.

The weather forecast for Galeton looks a bit rough this Sunday, so there will be no WCPS match for December. We’ll try again In January.

I hope all of you out there enjoy the coming holidays and get to spend them with the people you care about.

Range Conditions and Cancelations

The Steel Challenge Match regularly scheduled for Saturday 12/7 is cancelled due to range conditions.

For more on our current conditions see an update from Groundskeeper Jan…

All South Berms are ready for foot traffic only… The drive ways to the berms have been blocked with cones and/or red trash containers with sand bags to weight them down. The berm areas still have a lot of snow & moisture that needs to dry up. The North 4 berms are still full of snow & a large drift has filled the area just to the east of the porta potty – about 4′ deep. All this snow will need to melt & dry out.
The area around the Clubhouse has been bladed with Dennis Miller snow blowing one each of Skeet & Trap fields. Big thanks to Dennis!

With the amount of snow/ice all over the range…please encourage members to be patience…. it will be a process to get the berms useable to more than foot traffic.
