Barry Camp's covered shooting range is complete and in use! Thanks to some special sponsors, campers are learning about shooting sports in some great digs. The range includes portable shooting stations and a covered waiting pavillion.
Signs on the new covered shooting range acknowlege the contributions of TRB Enterprises of Gilford; Seacoast Mills, Inc., of Brentwood; and the Plum Creek Foundation, which made the new facility possible.
TRB Enterprises worked on the buildings, donating a full day's labor. Above, a TRB truck at the construction site as work progresses.
This talented crew from TRB Enterprises of Gilford built the camp's new shooting range. Lumber was donated by Seacoast Mills, Inc., of Brentwood, NH,. The Plum Creek Foundation funded roofing materials.
Just weeks before the first kids arrived for the 2012 summer sessions, volunteers worked through a cold rainy weekend to construct a gorgeous new covered shooting range and a pavillion where students can gather near the range. Gary Sleeper of Belknap County Sportsmen's Association was on hand to help. He recounts: "We had a great day last Friday! I am attaching pics of the new rifle range buildings. Yes, that's two building we put up! The range building is complete and the pavillion is all but done -- only the roof to complete and that will be done before the camp opens."
Belknap County Sportsmen's Association members take a well-deserved break outside their
refurbished adopted cabin.
