Rocky Granzella from The Chaffee County Times has a great article about a Colorado gun club receiving a grant to improve their facilities thanks to Friends of NRA.

Gun club adds 5-stand course to shooting range

Friends of NRA logo on NRAblog This past August, the Buena Vista Sportsman's Club has added a new five-stand sporting clays course to its facilities south of the rodeo grounds in Buena Vista.

Jerry Steinauer of Buena Vista explains how this all came about.

"In October 2010 we held a meeting to discuss the possibilities of creating a sporting clays course on the grounds of the gun club. A National Rife Association grant was available for application so we made the decision to apply for the grant. Total value of the grant was $19,437. There wasn't much time to prepare the grant, but I managed to get all of the documents and plans put together, in a short amount of time, and get them sent off to the NRA. We were notified that we had been approved for the grant around January of 2011. Notification of funds wasn't given until March of this year and the grant funds were received in July," he said.
