    On Thursday night (6/9) the local Naperville cable channel sent out a reporter and cameraman to do a story about our club and the range. For those that don't know, Naperville is a town of about 140,000 people and the range is located nearly smack in the middle of town, just across the street from the high school and a couple of blocks from the hospital. The town has grown up around the range, and as a result our location can create some issues for people who are less tolerant of firearm owners.

    Spitter is on the piece, and I'm in there too if you look quickly near the end of the clip. All things considered it was a very positive piece.

    The website link is posted above, and the video is at the upper left of the page.

    Good positive story. It is great to see a media outlet that will cover our
    sport this way. John

    In a similar vein the local NBC station is coming out tonight with a reporter and camera crew to cover our youth shooting program at Markham Park in S. Florida. That should help to increase awareness of the program that has about 125 young shooters between 10 & 17.

    If possible, see if you can get your reporter on the line to break a few clays?!

    Good Luck!
