OSU students, team members, alumni and friends,
During fall term 2019 we were unfortunately informed that Oregon State University’s Anderson & Keeling Memorial Target Range would close at the end of the 2019-2020 academic year. There have been a variety of reasons that has led to the current decision regarding the building. Funding for the range’s operation and maintenance is the main reason for this decision. RecSports has worked hard to advocate for both the OSU Pistol Club and the OSU Rifle Club regarding the campus target range.
We need your help to keep the range open!
We are currently working on a letter to ask President Ray to reconsider the decision to close down the range. We are asking for the submission of letters of support for the Anderson & Keeling Memorial Target Range. We are looking for letters from current/past OSU students, employees, alumni, families of students and any community members that have participated or been involved with the shooting clubs and/or Benton County 4-H Sharpshooters over the years. These letters of support will be included with our letter. We are also working to solve the funding challenges.
Thank you for your time and support. Please pass this message on to anyone who would be interested in submitting a letter of support.
We are only interested in positive and constructive feedback in letters of support. Any political or negative submissions are not wanted, are not helpful and are not endorsed by the clubs or those working towards the survival of the shooting clubs. The OSU clubs will collect and organize all of the responses to present a unified message to the OSU administration.
We have prepared a form letter of support to include some additional information that we are looking collect. Please fill out the form and submit it one of the following ways listed below. If you choose to write a longer letter than the form allows please attach that separately.
Please submit letters of support so that we receive them by April 4, 2020. (Electronic submission preferred)
