Jim Tier, using his expansive hot rod building skills, is one of the team members that keep birds flying out of the machines. In January, we barely had enough good machines to do a full five stand and a five station course. But, with Jim’s repair skills and frugal expenditures, we are assured that there are always over 20 machines on the courses, 7 on five stand and a reserve fleet for changes in look or repair. He volunteers tens of hours each month so that all of us can enjoy machines that throw a huge number of targets very well. And, even when he is up to his ankles in machine repairs, he always has that wide grin.
When you are on the range please thank Jim for his efforts. Better yet, bring your shotgun out and enjoy the courses with him. There is always room for volunteers like Jim that want to keep our site moving forward.
