JOAD Practice Location Changes

JOAD practices will move from Gander to the new indoor range for a few weeks. JOAD Practice will be Tuesday 6:30 pm to 8 pm at the new indoor range at New Beginnings Church. However, when Live Oak (see the prior Live Oak post) completes the remodel and renovation of their range, JOAD practices will move to Live Oak. At this point, we do not have an exact date for moving practices to Live Oak; all we know is it should be in the next few weeks. Also, the move to Live Oak will likely mean a change in which weekday we practice. We are still in talks with Live Oak as to which weekday it may be. Watch your email and/or the website for the news.

If you have any questions about this move for JOAD, let me know.

Great practices @ new range!

We had a busy and great practice on Saturday.  Though this is not our first practice at the new range, Saturday’s (Jan 4) practice was one of our most active as people come back from holiday vacations.  I don’t say it enough: Thank you to all our great coaches and thanks to all who helped with getting the range set up!
