Best range promotion: Working on the October Pumpkin Bash. Placing pumpkins for targets as well as pumpkin pinatas. Every customer receives a yellow ball which they can hit into the 55 gallon barrels or to light up the Target Panels as mentioned above. Also, looking to supplies for 3 holes of Cosmic Golf to compliment competition.

Special programs:  Connecting with local elementary and jr. high schools within a 5 mile radius. Goal is to connect/engage kids with building ‘kits’ that will attach to the Target Panels on range. Some devices made, along with sound activated lights, is a MP3 player when golf balls are hit at target.
