(Wednesday) night the Laramie Rifle Range held its annual election for members of the Board of Directors. It was the largest turn out in the history of the range. The results were a total vindication of the efforts of the Board to build and improve the range.

Since 2009 the hard work and efforts of men and women such as Glen Ashmore, Dave Hayes, Rex and Sandy Rees, Matthew and Debbie Barnes have transformed the range from a mediocore range into a first class regional facility. All this was done without raising fees or dues. The members as well as the Albany County Recreation Board, the City of Laramie, the Wyoming Army National Guard, the NRA and individual donors can now rest assured that funds were well spent. I would like to think that the last six years I spent on the Board (three as President) in some small way contributed to the success of the range and its future.
