Koko Head Shooting Complex action bays, skeet, and trap will be open this weekend(1/25/14), per Rangemaster Mike Muramoto. The Rifle Range may or may not be open, with restrictions as to distance and firing positions, pending completion of the work there.
The entire Koko Head Shooting Complex remains closed for remediation work. Not withstanding a KITV News report, the opening is planned , , per Rangemaster Mike Muramoto.
The work is progressing nicely. As of this afternoon, it appears that the Rifle Range eyebrow is framed and 1/3 roofed, the large sandpiles have been distributed from the 50 yard target line to the backstop, and there are large piles of clean dirt at the 100 yard target line ready to resurface the backstop.
Mahalo to Mayor Caldwell, Parks Director Toni Robinson, Rangemaster Mike Muramoto, and all the County employees who are working so expeditiously to re-open the ranges.
