Local nonprofit recieves support from NRA

     The Oregon Friends of NRA awarded over $382,000 to shooting groups and ranges in Oregon during 2016: Money they raised at Friends of NRA dinners and auction events. The High Desert Shooting Sports Foundation was awarded a generous grant of $20,000 from the Oregon Friends of NRA. The grant money will be used to help build the rifle range on property that was acquired recently by the foundation. The site will become the new home of the Redmond Rod and Gun Club that was established 70 years ago. The property is located between Redmond and Bend on highway 97. The total cost to build the outdoor rifle range is projected to be $200,000. Currently, the foundation is seeking gifts-in-kind and cash donations to help build the range. If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact: Dave Nielsen at (330) 465-6427
