Home on our Range...

Just after Hurricane Irene blew through Putnam County last year, a fairly large tree fell on our back shooting area and took out almost two stations.  Right before Christmas, several members pitched in to do the repair work.

Thanks goes out to Dave Moscato, for getting all the necessary building materials together and to Don Hopko and Fred Milanese for their pre-repair, clean up in cutting the offending tree down to size.

On a fairly cold December morning, those who contributed their time and efforts to additional repair work were...Rich Armbruster, Bart Barticciotto, Jim Chenevey, Don Hopko, Patrick Johnson, Kevin McGuinness, Fred Milanese, Darwin Richmond, Nat Russo, John Sparano and Kevin Whittaker.

Photos of the storm's aftermath...


Additional thanks to Jim Chenevey for some great photos!
