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 nor- mally 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. This year went much more smoothly than the previous year and I expect we’ll keep getting better at this. We have a change this year in regard to the distribution of the $150.00 renewal fee. Out of the $30.00 that normally went to our land acqui- sition fund, $15.00 dollars will now be allocated for our Fish and Game programs and the other $15 to our Capital Fund. Since we purchased the Norton Farm, there really isn’t a large need to keep saving money for future land purchases and since the hatchery and breeder costs keep increasing every year, your board thought it would be a good idea to re-allocate funds so we could keep member costs down. This change was announced to the floor during February’s member meeting and voted in unanimously at March’s meeting. Please try to attend the monthly meetings so your voice can be heard. Reminder; 1st Tuesday of every month except for July and August.
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.
As the climate around Outdoor Sports is chang- ing, 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.
