On Target Breaks Ground in Crystal Lake
Range & Tactical Training Center Targeted to Open in March of 2012
CRYSTAL LAKE, IL – Area business leaders, elected officials, and local residents joined the founders of On Target Range & Tactical Training Center this morning to break ground in the Terra Cotta Tech Business Center in Crystal Lake. On a rainy Monday morning, the attendees found much to be excited about.
“We’re so thankful for all the support we’ve received in McHenry County. So many people have already partnered up with us, from gun-rights groups and gun enthusiasts to public safety officials and firearm training organizations. We’re all eagerly anticipating the Grand Opening in March of 2012,” said Founding Partner Bo Strom of Charles River Group.
Taking part in the groundbreaking, Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce President Gary Reese lauded the business.
“We are always excited to see new businesses come into town. There is a lot of positive growth happening in Crystal Lake, and I want to thank you all for being part of the economic revitalization of our wonderful community.”
There were a number of other notable individuals in attendance, including McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler.
Said Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley,
“In addition to the economic benefits this new business will bring to Crystal Lake, we’re also excited because of what it will do for our police department. Currently our officers have to travel to Winnebago County for their training, but when On Target opens they will be able to complete their training right here in town. That is invaluable.”
