Dues To Remain Unchanged in 2004
At the October club meeting, the members considered a motion made at the September meeting to raise the club dues in 2004 to $75 to cover the costs of completing the new ranges. After much spirited debate, the motion was defeated and the club dues will remain at $45.00 for 2004.
Also, the club meetings will continue to be held at the Ramada Inn in 2004.

Member Alert! There are no trash cans on Benton Gun Club Ranges. We have burn barrels ONLY on ranges 1, 2, 3, and 4. Please place your unwanted targets, ammo boxes, cardboard, paper and other items that will burn in these barrels. If it will not burn, please take it home with you and dispose of it properly. Help keep our range clean so the people who work range maintenance can use their time for things like improvements instead of cleanup!
