Burn the Loan Paperwork!

At February’s monthly meeting a special event took place. Ted Gustafson had the honor of burning the loan papers for our new range property. We now own the land. Ted was instrumental in finding and negotiating the purchase of the property so it was only fitting he had the honor of lighting the paper. Now we need to raise money for the continuing construction of the new ranges.

    On December 23, 2014 the Itasca Gun Club (IGC) received a special gift donation of $5,000 from Steve Wilcox, Chairman of the Grand Rapids State Bank, to assist in the development and relocation of the Itasca Gun Club.   Mr. Wilcox stated “the importance of this step forward is for the betterment of Itasca County and the teaching of safety for our youth and hunters of the area.  The Wilcox family is dedicated to hunting and shooting sports and is pleased to help keep these traditions alive in Itasca County and northern Minnesota.”


    Joe Oliver, President of IGC, spoke of the importance of area business helping with the new development, citing how each goes hand in hand to make this endeavor come to fruition.  With the development of the new gun range, Mr. Oliver speaks highly of local businesses and club members who have given volunteer help with the relocation as well as monetary donations to allow the club to move forward. 


    Bob Ross, IGC treasurer, gave credit to the Wilcox family and Grand Rapids State Bank for their support by being an early leader to assist with loans and development of a workable financial plan for IGC, so we can relocate our shooting range and expand our capability for the shooting community.
