Road Condition Report (Last Plowed Sun, 10 Dec, 12:00pm. Last Updated Weds 13Dec 2017, at 7:55pm)​

Highway-to-Shotgun Range

Truck sprung a radiator leak this morning. Will fix this week. Road is frozen, but may be very rough and rutty. 4x4 Trucks recommended.

Shotgun Range to Rifle Range

I expect this section to be same as above. Frozen and bumpy.

Plowing Colour Key:

Road is Open Use At your Own Risk - May not be advisable for some vehicles (snow, ice, low-hanging branches, etc) Road absolutely Closed - Do not use (to prevent damage to road, for example)

A huge THANK YOU to those who came out this morning - we managed the impressive feat of clearing the road as far as the Shotgun Field. 

Tomorrow (Sunday), I'll be out there again at 10am, with anyone who can spare a couple hours. I suspect we should be able to break through to the Rifle and Pistol Ranges tomorrow.

Now, by "break through", I don't mean the road will be perfect - there are still low-hanging branches, and we may get the occasional new tree-fall on the road, but it's looking really great so far.

If you can make it out, tomorrow, even if you don't have a chainsaw, we can use people to pull the cut branches, and stack them in off to the side. Each saw can keep two "pullers" busy.

Here are some photos from today's activities:

Road and parking areas cleared again. I'm going to see if I can set some kind of status bar on this website, rather than fill this Website News space with just plow updates...

The annual meeting will be  on December 12 at 7:00 PM at the Kinsmen Center, in Newcastle . Reports for the year will be presented and election of officers for the next year will be carried out.
