On behalf of the members and directors of Juneau's Gun Club, Juneau's Rifle & Pistol Club and Hank Harmon Rifle Range, we wish to thank Tim McLeod, AEL&P president, and his employee, Dale Sams, lineman/operator for providing their wood chipper, its operation and safety considerations. The power chipper was used in clearing and chipping all undesired alder trees and miscellaneous brush at the above referenced ranges on Nov. 7.
In addition to AEL&P, volunteers at the Juneau Gun Club were Scott Yarnall (who did much of the falling and brushing on previous days), Wayne Bertholl, Chuck Cohen, Jay Davis and Mal Menzies.
At the Hank Harmon Rifle Range, volunteers included Wayne Bertholl, Lee Bingham, Bruce Bowler, Rick Boyle, Ray Coxe, Brad Flynn, Linda Flynn, Monty Kaiser, Mal Menzies and Weston Moore. Three unnamed Cub Scouts and their scout master also helped by picking up empty shell and other general clean-up.
Both ranges are now relatively free from an inward growth attack of brush and alder trees.
