Spring is here and with it all of the outdoor activities that your club has to offer will again be available for your enjoyment. Come on up and have some fun, but please pitch in and lend a hand during our annual clean-up day. We normally have a good turnout but could always use the help. Remember; many hands make light work!!!
Once again I wish to thank everyone for their cooperation with returning their dues by the October 1st deadline this past year. Every year we get better at this. Please remember to get them back on time. We had a change last year in regard to the distribution of the $150.00 renewal fee. Out of the $30.00 that normally went to our land acquisition fund, $15.00 dollars will now be allocated for our Fish and Game programs and the other $15 to our Capital Fund. This re-allocation has proven to help our fish and game programs tremendously.
Renewals will again be going out the last week of July so you’ll have a full 60 days to remit your dues payment. PLEASE CONTACT THE CLUB IF YOU DON’T RECEIVE YOUR RENEWAL FORM OR SIMPLY SEND YOUR CHECK IN WITH A COPY OF YOUR CURRENT CARD AND WE’LL TAKE CARE OF IT. There also seems to be some confusion regarding senior members. Senior members must also return their renewals so we can keep our database updated and current. If we do not receive the renewal back from a senior member they get dropped from our mailing list so please return your cards. Also seniors, if you are able to, we would really appreciate a donation so we can keep costs in check.
Our current membership contains 15% non- paying members. It’s becoming more and more difficult to keep things going as less and less funds are rolling in.
As the climate around Outdoor Sports is changing, we really need to pull together and support each other. Please get a friend involved or your kids or grandkids. The median age of the club keeps getting older and if we don’t get some new, younger members, all that we have and have worked for will disappear.
Please try to attend the monthly meetings so your voice can be heard. Reminder; 1st Tuesday of every month except for July and August.
