Range Update

Good News!!

The City completed repairs to the west berm and has given us the go-ahead to start holding matches again.

The "bad' news is that there is a lot of cleanup/repairs that need to be done before we can start doing so.

As you can see from the photos, the city’s heavy equipment churned up the range pan, turning it into a fine powder. Luckily they spared the bays themselves.

NVSA Range Update ~ River levels rise again

Members

Most of you have been able to follow what is happening via Facebook. For those that cannot, here is a bit of an update. During the last major storm, the west berm of the range breached due to very high flows in the river from Lake Oroville, resulting in the range being inundated with approximately 15-ft of water for an extended period of time. A number of Board members inspected the range on Sunday, March 12th. It really is quite bleak. The conex boxes were filled with water, so we lost near a $1000 in cardboard targets, with the addition of anything else that can be damaged by being submerged in water for extended periods. Ty has a tentative range cleanup date scheduled for April 1st on Practiscore, we will need generators, power washers, scrub brushes, and lots of rags. If it does not occur at that time, any signups will roll-over to the next date… whenever that can be. Currently we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and the City of Gridley. The Board has been and remains in contact with both the City and NVSA’s insurance carrier. Mother Nature just refuses to be cooperative at this time. Feel free to comment on this post or visit us on facebook to stay up to date.

Auxiliary spillway failure 2-13-2017

With the river at 96 feet and our berm between the parking lot and the range being blow out here is what is looks like today. 

IF you want to monitor the river, click here.  We need the river to be at 85 feet for the range to begin drying out. Right now the river is at the level in this photo.
