Vehicle traffic damaging the ranges

Please DO NOT drive on the ranges with vehicles until further notice… there are deep ruts being created by vehicle traffic and things are quite soft out there.

Thank you for your cooperation in protecting our range from damage! We are working to mitigate this somehow, possibly using some of the gravel that we have out there east of the Training and Resource Centre (formerly known as the “clubhouse”), but in the meantime it’s just too soft.
