Important News From IGC

Itasca Gun Club is a club of skilled people.  We’re looking for a licensed plumber who can help with laying out the sanitary drain drawings for pouring the concrete slab for our new clubhouse location.  If you can help with this, please call Mike Twite at (218) 259-3795. We need this layout in order to go out for concrete bids.

 

Range Construction

 

It will be a busy and unpredictable summer.  Range construction will result in multiple range closures as contractors do their work.  Please check the calendar regularly if you plan to use the range.  Sometimes we have no control over when contractors can do their work, and range closures may happen on short notice.

 

In the short term, contractors will be hauling fill dirt for backstop berms, hauling clay for surfacing the berms to keep rocks from causing ricochets and building up three outdoor pistol bays to safety standards. 

 

Concrete will be poured for the new pistol shooting points, and overhead cover will be erected.  Concrete will be poured for the new clubhouse location, and a mover will haul the clubhouse over and place it on the concrete.  

 

This work is being funded by a grant from the IRRRB.

 

There will be a great deal of work in disassembling the clubhouse, ready room and indoor range -  breaking down the heating and ventilation systems, removing the interior fittings, the cabinets and other items.  A new trail for DNR Youth Firearm Safety classes is laid out and needs to be constructed.  


This will require a large chunk of volunteer work.  We’re looking to club members and other volunteers to get this work done in stages, as specific work tasks.  Your volunteer work helps the club twice, as the hours spent are recorded as an in-kind donation, which helps the club acquire future grants.

 

In order to ask for volunteers, we will be sending a few more regular and irregular emails asking for work parties to accomplish specific tasks. 

 

The outhouse will be moved to the new site, and the existing port-a-potty by the rifle range will remain.  The clubhouse will operate on a generator until heavy construction is finished.  At that point, power can be run into the new site.

 

Summer Programs

 

Itasca Action Pistol happens every Thursday evening.  Service Rifle matches are held every third Tuesday, as are the 100 Year Old Rifle matches.  There will be pistol carry permit classes in the clubhouse/indoor range June 9 and June 23 (these require pre-registration).  Monthly IGC meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month.  And a new pilot event, a 3 Gun Run will be held June 23.  All these events are open to the public, and are on the Calendar, where you can click on any event to learn more and find contact information.
