Indoor Range update

The Nanticoke Sportsman’s Club Indoor range has just received a significant update.
A new Heat and A/C system!
Due to the increased usage of the range, The BOD, with full support of all members present, voted to award a contract for a new system. It is a Hybrid using a Heat Pump for cooling and an LP gas burner for heat. Stats are 5 Ton on the AC side and 110,000 BTU on the heat side. The system was professionally installed by Above and Beyond Services of Laurel. It has a very clean and minimal footprint and is very quiet. It moves air rapidly and raises temperature in room about 5 degrees in ten minutes.
With this new system in place, we will be scheduling more warm weather indoor events. The range already being used for Bullseye Archery on Tuesday, 4-D archery on Thursday and open archery shoot on Sundays. It will now be possible to shoot in relative comfort despite the weather.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch these league competitors stop by and see what the fun is all about.
