    Dear Friends of Charity Hill,

    We are sorry to inform you that the Caroline County Board of Supervisors revoked our special use permit Tuesday night, 4/1/08. Therefore, we must cease operation immediately. We have an application pending to reopen as a rural commercial recreational facility, and we are hoping that issue will be heard by a joint meeting of the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission in May.

    Our family would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who came out to the meeting on the 1st in our support, and also to everyone who wrote letters of support to our Board of Supervisors. You are all great folks, and we feel very blessed to have your as friends.

    We are working with the Board of Supervisors to reopen our business as soon as possible and to honor contracts for scheduled private events. We will also continue to honor our value cards or issue refunds if so desired.

    Thank you all once again, and we'll keep you updated on the process.

    Sincerely
    Steve, Cindy, Kendal & Christopher Smith

    According to an article in the Fredericksburg paper, the range was operating under a special use permit as a hunt club. The complaints were that there was shooting outside of the approved hours, and that land areas outside of the approved special use permit were being used. Also there was the issue whether it was a private hunt club as described in the special use permit, or a commercial range. Noise was raised as an issue as well.

    If the newspaper report as to the violations is accurate, I'm afraid they have a tough battle ahead to get open again.
