Each year at Boomershoot we start the long range event on Sunday with a fireball target:
Notice all the dirt coming back at the audience?
This means there is a crater:
There used to be a house and other buildings at this location. Sometimes we find metal objects in the dirt. If some of these metal objects landed on people or their property the damage would be a very bad thing.
There is also the problem that with the increasing number of craters we don’t have a good place to put the fireball. It needs to be slightly elevated so the explosives, at the bottom of the fireball target can be shot from a safe distance.
Last year we used some sand bags to raise it above the ground some:
Last weekend I bought some sand* and filled in last year’s crater. I made a small platform on top of the sand for the placement of the fireball target:
Next Sunday we will know how this works.
* This was Ry’s idea.
