    You could always grab your pistols and head to Red Cliffs Rifle & Pistol Range (out by the DMV & fairgrounds) and join the pistol steel plate match open for all levels of shooters starting at 8 am. Or you can take the whole family our for some fun on the main range from 8 am to Noon. http://www.redcliffsrange.com for all the details at this county owned, volunteer run SAFE recreational shooting facility.

    A little under the video it says “Weekend events | July 14-16”. My guess is that these events are scheduled for this weekend, not last weekend?

      You are indeed correct. Thank you for bringing this oversight to our attention. It has been remedied.
