This year Dan Brown, Ron Berg and Doug Luppes board member terms end and are up for re-election. Others who wish to be considered for nomination need to be nominated at the June 3rd meeting. Members are always welcome to attend. The July 1st Board Meeting will be election night. Come and Vote. Also the board would like to hear from you (the members) about any ways that we could improve the Ike's. After the election of the three board members, the board will appoint the officers and conduct the normal board meeting.

Boone Valley Izaak Walton Family Fun Day will be June 14 (Sunday).  Contact Dave Gordon 515-827-5366 with ideas or questions or to sign up and help. There are a lot of events now during Family days and we can use more assistance.

Range Usage:  Please make sure all your targets are set up so the bullets impact the berms.  Any targets carried out to be shot must be disposed of properly when you’re finished with them.  All shell casings need to be picked up this includes 22 cal.,  Center Fire, Shotgun, etc.  If you see someone that is not picking up after themselves, bring it to their attention and if that doesn’t work it should be brought to the attention of a Board Member.  We want to keep our Range clean.

Bench Rest:  The north range is open each Friday of the shoots to all members, but everyone shooting must shoot with the lights (about 45 minutes to shoot and 15 minutes down to set flags and targets).  Friday is a good time for anyone interested in asking questions or possibly even shooting one of the bench rest guns.  Contact Mike Bigelow for details.
