Hopefully it was insured and...

Sounds like a good chance for a bunch of shooters and members to have Rebuilding BBQ. :)

Add some new features and ideas at the same time.

Our range was partially burned by a large forest fire that got a good part of the town back in 2000. But it survived.

It is on DOE land and now the DOE wants to give it to the county and land developers are licking their chomps to develop it. So far a good fight has kept them at away for now. But we have very little room to grow here with DOE land and Indian land surrounding us.

Sorry to hear the news. We all are a bit less when these things happen.

A Club would be most negligent to not have insurance. They should just be able to submit an insurance claim, and then rebuild.

Was that the range at the dump?

I'd guess the next closest range would be Thurmont.
I used to live exactly halfway between Frederick and Thurmont.
Good luck with your search for a new range. They're rare in that area.
