NEWS AND UPDATES

Club Webmaster Seeking Assistance: Mike Lord is sending out a call to those members who would like to help me keep our website, internet connection, AV equipment, and other things going. It would be a great help to the club to have someone else who knows where the keys are, so to speak, when Mike is not available. Send an email to yorkcountyfga@gmail.com , or look Mike up at a meeting if you’re interested.

Wednesday afternoon Rimfire Benchrest Group: This group will begin the 2nd Wednesday in May at 4:00, there are two open slots remaining. This year we will shoot rain or shine as we have waterproof targets.
