Panaramic at Newberry.jpg
If this worked its a panoramic from the water tower to the entrance.
This is looking Southeast from where the bags are located behind the main building. The trees in the background are along the pasture to the East. Very far away.
It will work out but there will be some pretty good walks to some of the ranges.
I think they said they had 60 acres to work with still. All the land that was cut was private land that bordered the facility. Basically everything South and West is gone and a little on the North side.
just what the geezers need...longer walks.

now here's what i propose...if everyone would bring their artificial Christmas tree from home, we could set up the ranges with 'em.
Hmmmmmmm, let's see now --- artificial vs. inflatable ???
artificial would be: higher cost
might cause a false allergenic reaction
more weather resistant
inflatable would be: cheaper
easier to pack
more vulnerable to adverse weather
Then again we could leave it up to personal preference !!!
Just had a positive thought about the Newberry Dessert Shootout--- ain't nobody gotta worry about their arrows hittin a tree enroute to the target !!!
Carlos, there ain't nuthin to reconsider bout Newberry 2014 --- the geezers'd be lost without their patriark there --- would you also pass up the Geezer Bowl too ???
That's been like that for some time....the trees that have been cut where all on land not owned by the city....
Where the sims ranges and practice 3d ranges were, had been cut to look like ya was shooting in florida scrub land or western prairie. ...last time I shot up on the 3d range in the back
Tim the cuttings are pretty fresh. It will be a long walk to any woods that can accommodate a range. Only thing left is the ranges way in the back and the couple behind the water tower. They told me they still had 60 acres to work with.
We're not talking thinned but clear cut.
