Wythe Shooting Range in Need of VolunteersYour assistance would be appreciated.
The Wythe Shooting Range near Wytheville in the Jefferson National Forest was closed earlier this year. The unsupervised shooting range was the victim of sufficient vandalism that the Forest Service took action to close it.
A meeting about the closure will be held in the Wythe County Sheriff's Office on Monday, April 26. The meeting is open to all those with an interest in having the range reopened and in volunteering support to assist the Forest Service with maintenance and oversight of the range.
If you have an interest in becoming a volunteer, your attendance at the meeting would be most welcomed. The meeting is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at 245 South 4th Street in Wytheville.
NRA Eastern Regional Director Brian Hyder will be in attendance as well as representatives of Virginia's Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. The NRA and the Department provided the funding and technical assistance for the construction of the range.
If you can attend or for further information, please contact Mr. Hyder at 276-579-9828. [link]
