Fantastic BASF FITA Range News!

  • Phoenix Tent and Awning has been awarded the contract to construct permanent canopies at Ben Avery FITA range.

  • Thank you Arizona Game and Fish Department!

Work is to begin right away to meet the end of February 2008 deadline for completion of new canopy construction.

  •  “We” need to quickly remove the old canopy frames so construction can begin.

  • Volunteers are needed on Saturday January 12, 2008 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM and take apart and remove the old frames.

  • Bring gloves, step ladders, pliers, hammers and a pick to remove the stakes.

  • A trailer would be great, too.  Feel free to invite others.

Please email  if you can make it or might be able to make it.
