Parks said, “The combined effort the past few years between the NMLRA/IN-DNR and USFWS continues on many parts of the NMLRA (National Muzzleloading Rifle Association), grounds in Friendship, but the Trap Range is complete along with the Woods Walk. Thanks to Art Fleener (P/R Chairman) and the other committee members for their volunteer efforts who have overseen these projects at Friendship. Improvements to the Walter Cline Range include a renovated trap line, new trap houses and 120 shooting stations. The NMLRA 2022 Spring Shoot continues through Sunday, June 19. Along with the Shoot, is a large flea market, great music and lots of food vendors.
