Range Resourses Drill Site Tour-If interested please call King Lion Hans

 

For our visit to a Range Resources Gas Well Drill Site on May 27, we need you confirmed participation at the next meeting on May 13. I will pass around liability waivers.

 So far we have Bob Kendall, Dick Shearer, Rocco Quaranto, Barbara Vargo, Sue McNally, Jim Balent and Hans Papenbrock signed up.

Here are some guide lines:

As for attire: Range will provide hard hats and safety glasses for attendees. Visitors to wear long pants (jeans usually work best) and closed toed shoes (boots work best if possible). Bring a rain coat if the forecast is calling for that...

Range will have a bus to meet us all at one location to distribute the hard hats, etc., and gather the waiver forms. We can meet at Range's office in Southpointe or at a place of our choice (possibly the Ramada Inn parking lot) and go on a bus from there. The final well site is still TBD as operations are always moving.

The site will not allow for taking our meal. Once we know where we are going, we will chose a restaurant or go back to the Ramada, where the bus will drop us off after the visit.

We will discuss and sign waivers at the next meeting May 13
