APRA will be having a range clean-up day on May 6th,2012. For those who can make it out, please bring a rake and a shovel if possible and a good set of work gloves. Water and pop and hamburgers will be available for those who attend.

We realize this is an up hill battle, but certain members of the shooting public refuse to clean-up after themselves. Your help is needed and appreciated in encouraging other shooters that you may meet out at Homestead - "If it came out with you - Take it Home with you"
