Mayflower range closed for renovation

shooting range

MAYFLOWER (AGFCF) - The popular Dr. James E. Moore Jr. Camp Robinson Firing Range near Mayflower will be closed while construction of shooting positions and renovations to the skeet fields are completed. The range will be closed at various times beginning Wednesday, Feb. 2.

The trap field will remain open at all times unless reserved for AYSSP practices.

Plans are to increase rifle shooting positions from 10 to 12, and pistol positions from 20 to 30 spots. Space for additional shooting positions will be created by leveling the berm between rifle and pistol ranges and replacing it with a concrete barrier.

The pistol and rifle ranges will be closed at various times while a concrete barrier is completed. The skeet and trap fields will remain open during normal business hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m., Wednesday-Sunday) until renovations are complete.
