New Life Time Members

New Life Time Members Announced June 2016

At the June 21st meeting of the the LJRC Board of Directors a motion was made to award current Board members, Brandon Madewell and Carl Otteman, with Life Time Memberships to the La Junta Rifle Club.  Both Brandon and Carl have been instramental in all of the improvements made at the Club over the last few years.  They have written and administered grants, given countless hours of their time, and have been spotted manning shovels and rakes to make our Club what it is today.  Next time you run into one of these fine gentleman you may want to pass on a congrats and a thank you...they certainly have earned both.

Unfortunately for the LJRC and for La Junta, next time you see Mr. Madewell he will most likely be visiting town as he and his family have recently moved from the area.  We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and hope that he will find time to visit the Club to shoot with us in the future.  Kelly Block will be taking over the gavel from Brandon and will serve as Club President for the remainder of Brandon's term.

Range Clean Up

'15 Spring Clean Up at LJRC

A special thank you to Board members Brandon Madewell (assisted by Mstr. Madewell), Kelly Clodfelter, Kelly Block, Brad Jones, Carl Otteman, and Dean Zimmerman who participated in a range clean up day Sunday June 7th.  There was no shortage of tumble weeds to pitchfork and burn.  Dean manned the tractor, cutting fire breaks, mowing the area, and piling up weeds.  Brandon and Tripp worked the ATV and propane burner with help form Kelly B..  Kelly C. provided a lawn tractor to assist with mowing and was also the head look-out for rabbit related issues.  Safety was paramount and everyone worked together to insure that it was a successful clean up and safe burn.  Thanks again gentlemen.  The Club appreciates your time, equipment, and hard work.

The Club looks great and is ready for the summer.  Come on out and enjoy the facilities.  Make sure to check out the new picnic area by the clubhouse!

Project Appleseed 2015

Marksmanship and History Events at LJRC September 26-27

Events start at 8:30.  Please arrive early to allow for setup and sign in.  Project Appleseed is a nationwide program that teaches rifle marksmanship skills that have been passed down from generation to generation and reconnects Americans with the people and events of colonial America.  Participants are taught skills that allow a Rifleman to be accurate out to 500 yards using a standard rifle with iron sights.  This ability is traditionally known as mastering the 'Rifleman's Quarter Mile' and is an American tradition that has been part of this nation from its very first days.  So join us and hear some little-known Revolutionary War history, reaffirm your heritage and make America a better place.  For more info contact CO
