Good afternoon, BCOAC community!
I hope everyone’s weekend was a great one. If you couldn’t make it out to the BCOAC, it’s okay, we were snowed in Saturday as well. To keep you informed on our activities, here are this week’s takeaways.
How do you like the new signs? It gets better — later this week we’ll have Clites come hook up the lights so they’re illuminated at night.
The biggest thing going on right now… we are assembling the 2019 budget. That’s right, we are putting together next year’s upgrades. Hot topics of discussion: LED lights, paving both entrances, and upgrading the targets.
We will be rolling back our open times on Saturdays to 9 a.m. starting in May.
If you haven’t seen the new addition yet, check out the Game, Fish & Parks office located by the archery range. We look forward to welcoming them to the facility this month.
Last week, Easton donated 66 recurve bow limbs. We’ll be creating a few recurve leagues and clubs, so if you haven’t tried one or are thinking about trying one out before you buy it, we have them.
The lockers have one more move this week and will be finalized by Saturday, April 21.
With 2 new pistol rests and 10 more ear muffs on the way, we are making it easier and more affordable to bring your friends to shoot, without having to purchase ear protection.
The past eight weeks, we’ve hosted South Dakota State students as they test out a new targeting system for a senior project to showcase at the SDSU Engineering Expo this Saturday, April 20. If you’re available, I’m sure the students would love the support. If you mention you’re with the BCOAC, they might even let you shoot the nerf gun.
Pistol Range Committee (PRC) meets Tuesday, April 17 at 5:30 p.m. If you have suggestions for 2019 in the firearm or archery range, come and let us know. We are always looking to make things more exciting for our members.
Stay updated with BCOAC happenings.
Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see when we start our new clubs, leagues and when we get outside archery approved. 😉
Thank you for your time,
Robert Contreras, Director of the BCOAC
