  2. Ed Swan-Capital Range Improvements:  Ed went over a detailed PowerPoint with the membership for improvements at the pistol range.  This is a package deal. Over a year ago the membership was given a list to prioritize what they wanted to see at the range.  Pistol bathrooms were high on the list. We could not do anything until the Caltrans project was done. Caltrans is gone and now this is the proposal.  Other options were more expensive than what is being proposed here.
