In this picture you can see the 20 bench 600 yard Bench Rest Line. The Club House, Pavilion, and Score Shack are the dark objects in the center of the picture. It looked like we got to about an Inch of having water inside the Score Shack. Water is running over the concrete pad on the Bench Rest Line for the first time. The Bridge with 4 each 36" Culverts is under the White Water on this side of the Bench Rest Line.
Volunteers put in 54 hours cleaning up Leaves and Limbs on the Range. We had a Back Hoe repair the washed out bridge before the last 4 Inch Rain, good thing or we would probably have lost the undercut bridge slab. We have had equipment on site for 2 days hauling off 24 dump truck loads of rock washed out of the creek bed onto the range. We have been recovering white rock washed into mowed areas. Repairing parking lots and roads. We will probably end up with 10 or 11 loads of new white rock on roads and parking areas, and handgun bays. The equipment pulled off to work on another hot project. They are supposed to be back this afternoon to finish up. We still have one area that is not mow-able along the creek bed, and another few loads of rock to haul on the entrance road.


This is a picture of the Pavilion at Pulltite Current River Access on the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. It is in pretty good shape compared to other Park Service river accesses/Parks in the area. We lost the building at Two Rivers Canoe Rental. Lots of damage on the rivers.

Man plans, Mother Nature laughs. Mother Nature will have her way when she wants. Hope your club members pull together to help clean up the mess. One of the prices we pay to pursue our sport that most never see. Thanks for sharing and good luck.

I was turkey hunting around Columbia in 2011 when that system dumped Noah amounts of rain on Missouri. Came home to help with flooding victims/looters along the White River basin for the next 3 weeks. It all goes somewhere.

We'll keep y'all in our prayers.
