Thanks for cleaning up the rifle range

Posted: Wednesday, October 29, 2008

To the citizen users and visitors of Juneau's, Hank Harmon Rifle Range, thank you.

On behalf of the Hank Harmon Rifle Range, Board of Directors and those who use the range facilities, I thank Jeff Cordle for his leadership in cleaning both the short and long ranges shooting areas. This includes trimming grass and weed areas, brushing, raking, burning and removing waste materials as well as constructing new target stands for both ranges.

This project was Jeff's Eagle Scout Project, and he did an excellent job organizing and directing his "recruits" for the job. They were Erlin Olsen, Bill Ely, Ashley and Chris Walkenford, Alden, Jamie, Zander and Athena Zellhuber, Bob, Annette, Hannah, Bryson and Madsen Cordle, Bo and Makayla Pierce, John and Sara Mikesell, Ben and Grant Gilbert, Monte and Diane Kyser, Trevor League, Ellis and Traci Day, Darwin and Caleb Jensen, Tevita, Kueni, Tu'avao, Nia and Manase Ma'ake, Murphy Brooks, Loren and Sarah Bettridge, Britt Gibson, Chris Salazar and Grey Pendleton.

Jeff also had donations of goods and services from the following companies and local government division: Valley Lumber, Les Schwab, city of Juneau Streets Department and Cordon Bros. Construction.

Jeff says "thank you Juneau and those individuals and companies who have helped me with finishing my Eagle Scout Project. They have all been a great help to me in this public endeavor."

The H.H.R.R.I., B.O.D. also thanks Carlton Shorley for his Eagle Scout Project of last year, which consisted of constructing shooting tables for the range. Carlton refined a prototype designed by Ernie Mueller for his project. The B.O.D. thanks both of these fine gentlemen.

The Hank Harmon Rifle Range(s) are a free, un-supervised firearms range that is open to the public at posted hours. The public's responsibility is to follow the posted safety rules and regulations and to police there spent targets and trash. Please help us keep this fine facility safe and clean. We, within the city of Juneau, are fortunate to have such a fine facility that was built, re-built and is maintained only through volunteer efforts by all.

Raymond L. Coxe, president, and the Board of Directors
