    Can anyone tell me how long the longest range there is? Just from driving by it doesn’t appear to be very long at all.

    The one south of Green Castle Bridge is 100 yards max.

    They lengthened it. The one on the north side, on Amana Road. I guess somehow I’m unaware of one south of the Greencastle Bridge?

    Anyway they lengthened it over last spring and summer to 100 yards. A quick look on Google Maps using the “Measure distance” tool gave me a length of 300.65 feet from bench to the backstop. Pretty non-scientific I suppose but it should be right around 100 exactly now.

    Thank you, that’s what I wanted to hear. That ruler on Google Earth is kind of neat, I had never noticed it before.

    Its pretty handy for figuring out 200 yards from buildings too.

    Side note: the 5 year county plan involves Amana Rd, so access will become more difficult in a year or two.
