Ri­fle club adds voice to con­cern

Isis Town and Country - - News - By MATTHEW MCIN­ER­NEY

CHILDERS Ri­fle and Pis­tol Club pres­i­dent Larry Dunks has added his voice to con­cern over Bootharh Rd.

Mr Dunks made it clear he did not want to attack Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil be­cause he said it had done great work both at the site and for the club.

“The prob­lem is it’s been a patch-up job ev­ery time,” he said.

“Coun­cil have been great. They’ve al­ways been quick to fix it over the years, but they have to stop patch­ing it and just redo it.”

A ma­jor shoot in two weeks will see shoot­ers from across the Wide Bay de­scend on the Isis club.

This is on top of the three lo­cal shoots per week, in­clud­ing the newly opened air pis­tol range.

Mr Dunks said it would be an ex­pen­sive job and would take a con­sid­er­able amount of time to fin­ish, but ad­mit­ted he would like to see a plan for the road.

Isis River res­i­dent Frank Har­ris started a pe­ti­tion to lobby the coun­cil for a road up­grade last week and has al­most 100 signatures.

Coun­cil­lor Tony Ricciardi told Town & Coun­try last week more than $60,000 had been spent on the road since 2012.
