    Panaramic at Newberry.jpg

    If this worked its a panoramic from the water tower to the entrance.

    Southeast.jpg

    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.

    Maybe Newberry will provide shuttles like Cullman did ??? !!! Looks like everyone should ask for an "inflatable tree" for Xmas to take to the shoot with them.!!! Can you just hear it --- when 1500 shooters all let the air out of their trees at the same time ??? !!!

    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
    heavier
    pickier
    might cause a false allergenic reaction
    BUT
    more weather resistant

    inflatable would be: cheaper
    lighter
    easier to pack
    BUT
    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.
