Fall and Winter 2012 Schedule

Fall/Winter 2012 H2O Schedule, Range, Match Information

Hunting season is here and we have many hunts booked but still have some openings.  Contact us about scheduling hunts.


14th-16th: All of the dirt for the new berm and improvements to some of the exising berms is in and Andy got all of the ‘roughing in’ done.  The big equipment will raise the new berm to 12-feet and flatten out the top this coming week.  This will allow a closed-in (260-degree or more safe turning), truly ‘blind’ stage and 6 IDPA stages in the main range area.

Saturday, 22nd: First day of fall.
– Steven will qualify a CCH class and ‘some others’ will be ‘plinking’ .22s in the late afternoon (3pm and later).
– The range will be open for rim-fire ONLY this afternoon – approximately 3-5pm.
