    We are working on a new outdoor pistol range. With this new range we will be able to use the new pistol range and the rifle range at the same time. We are looking for someone with mason skills who would be willing to help us pour a concrete slab.

    We would need you to set up the forms, help pour the concrete, and help float and finish the concrete. We will have volunteers to help you with all aspects of the project. The slab will be 12' X 40' by 6" thick. We need someone who can calculate the yards we will need for the project.

    If you would be interested in this project please contact Joe Kopacz at (518) 813-7024 or Ted Schrick at (518) 496-9761. We would like to do this as soon as possible.
