Construction on the Perham Sportsmans Club firing range is nearing completion.

The project, spearheaded by Dave Edvall and Frank Vorderbruggen, is set for final touches in July. Shooting should be available in late July or early August.


"A lot of people said it couldn't be done," said Vorderbruggen. "We've got guys that are business owners and have a can-do attitude. We wouldn't take no for an answer."
