Hi everyone! Well, it is that time of year again. Membership renewal time! Your renewal form is accompanying this newsletter. Assessment allo- cations will remain the same for this upcoming year. Our $40 variable assessment will still be in effect for this year, $30 will go to our capital fund, $15 will go to our game program and $15 will go to the purchase of fish for our stocking program.
There STILL seems to be some confusion regard- ing Life Member renewals. How it was done 10 years ago doesn’t matter. We need Senior mem- bers to return their renewal cards also. This is how we keep the database current and how we get you your newsletters. If the card doesn’t come back, your name doesn’t stay in the database so please return it. A small donation from the seniors helps greatly as well so please send in what you can.
Remember, dues must be received by the club no later than October 1st or you will be dropped from the club roster. This will be your only notice so please renew right away so you don’t forget. “My wife forgot to send it in is not an excuse”. If you are paying with cash we have a new drop box behind the bar so please leave your renewal with the bartender on duty and ask him or her to place it in the drop box.
Every year I make a plea for you to bring in new members and for the first time since I have held this post, our numbers have increased. Not by much but at least we haven’t lost any members this year!! That doesn’t mean that we can stop trying to recruit more people. Please remain vigi- lant and introduce a friend to the club. If you know someone that has even a passing interest in the shooting sports, please do what you can to kindle that interest. We are also working to make it easier to bring a guest to the club.
Our Annual Field Day and Barbecue tickets are on sale now at the bar. After the success of last year’s event Lamb is back on the menu again. The cost is $35 per ticket. There will still be a great accompanying menu as well. If you haven’t attended our Annual Field Day BBQ in the past you don’t know what you’re missing. This event has great food, great company and lots of fun. Don’t wait till the last minute to purchase your ticket as we sell out for this event every year. As always, if there is anything I can help you with please let me know.
That’s it for now. The door is always open and if you have any questions or concerns please let me know. See you on the hill!
