The October General Work Day is scheduled for this Saturday Oct 1st from 7:00 am until 3:30 pm. We have several wood construction jobs planned and lots of painting/staining to complete. Construction jobs include building new Target Frames for the Main Range in preparation for Sight-In Days, building short wooden walk paths for the Pistol Range and repairing gun racks on the 500M Range. Lots of staining to complete on the 500M Range and Main Range. 

This is the last General Work Day for this year, so come out and get your work hours in.

General Work Day Sept. 10

The Sept 10th General Work Day is scheduled from 7:00 am until 3:30 pm.

We have a lot of smaller general work projects planned. Several painting / staining jobs, several construction repair type jobs, brush removal jobs, and spent brass sorting / cleaning jobs. No special tool needs are anticipated.

Work Day attendance has generally been pretty slim this year, so we are hoping for better attendance for this Work Day.

General Work Day – July 9

The next General Work Day at the BRC is scheduled for this Saturday July 9th from 7:00 am until 3:30 pm.  The main work scheduled for the day is on the Cowboy Range and other back ranges.  The main coordinators for the day will be Bruce Nygren and Tina Saporiti.  A brief summary of the scheduled work is as follows. More details will be provided that morning.

  1. Move props on various stages
  2. Add sand/gravel on banks next to props as needed
  3. Weed / Trim bushes, brush and trees as needed
  4. Adjust and straighten shotgun targets on Stage 4
  5. Move knockdowns on “Outhouse” stage downrange.

If we have plenty of workers (we only had 7 show last month) we are also going to work on constructing an overhead “lean to” type cover over the hand trap thrower on the front Trap Range.  We have a new hand thrower to be installed once the cover is completed. We will also have painting jobs available if the weather permits and other work available if we have enough workers.

As usual, personal tools are welcomed.  Wear appropriate clothing for the various jobs discussed.

General Work Day – Rescheduled

April 2nd work day has been Canceled

Rescheduled for April 9th.

Due to the extreme weather forecast for this Saturday, the BRC Range Construction Board has decided to postpone the General Work Day scheduled for this Saturday April 2nd until Saturday April 9th.  Times on April 9th will still be from 7:00 am until 3:30 pm. All the work that was planned is outside work and the cold and rain forecasted this Saturday are not conducive with our plans.  Sorry for the late notice.  Hopefully next weekend will have much better weather.

Please call Brad Mueller at 815-218-2944 or e-mail me “bradrm@charter.net” if you have any questions.
