    The DNR website says construction should have taken a year. We are now past that date. Not sure if anybody knows.

    OK so how do I post pics from today taken from the road.
    May 11 official dedication. Anyone interested in operating this facility I understand they are still taking bids.

    Wow, it looks very impressive from the pics.

    So, they are taking bids for operations, that seems odd.

    OK I spoke to someone DNR who has some measure of responsibility at Atterbury.
    Bidding for the vendor to operate the range was closed last Friday. Who was not revealed for good cause. I did get a confirmation of one vendor who did not even bid.
    Many details are lacking. AN SOP is under development. No details. This SOP will include range rules and store guidelines. For your best chance to see what it may look like check out one of the other 2 ranges built or rebuilt in the last 3 years. Roush Lake is one.
    I will answer any question I know that was not specified as privileged.
