Hi All,
Well we had our Thunder Hill Shelter robbed, here is some of the things they took:
1) Propane Tank
2) Deep Cycle Battery
3) The Charger Control
4) Small Battery Charger
5) Some split Wood
6) Picnic Table Wrecked
7) Utensils from shack
If anyone hears about someone bragging about robbing our shelter let us know. So hard for the club, volunteers supply so much and to have someone rob us is just so unfair.
