Default Field Sports Park closed June 21-25

Stopped by the range today and found the backstops all being dug up and replaced. It figures I planned a couple of long sessions and they're closed.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I just looked at their website, and it now says the following:

"The rifle/pistol range will be closed (Mon-Sat) beginning June 19, 2017 through August 4, 2017 for lead removal.
However the rifle/pistol range will continue to be open on Sundays."

and

"The trap/skeet range will be closed (Mon-Sat) beginning June 19, 2017 through August 4, 2017 for lead removal.
However the trap/skeet range will continue to be open on Sundays."

FYI, it looks like they have updated their website to remove Sundays for the rifle/pistol range ... but the trap/skeet range now shows as open:

https://www.sccgov.org/sites/parks/p...orts-Park.aspx

"Rifle and Pistol Range:
The rifle/pistol range will be closed beginning June 19, 2017 through August 4, 2017 for lead removal."
...
"Trap and Skeet Range: (Seasonal Public Use Hours)
The trap/skeet range is open."

FYI, they updated their website with the following:
"The rifle/pistol range will be closed beginning June 19, 2017 through July 21. The range will reopen on July 22."

I may try to stop by today to confirm the early re-opening.

Update: OK, I spent a couple of hours there is morning and confirmed they are open (with freshly-repainted benches on the rifle side). Very crowded, but that's normal for the weekend.
