Welcome New Members:

This year's game dinner was a huge success from great food, excellent participation, monetary proceeds, outstanding preparation, and large amount of raffle prizes.
KUDOS to Mike O’Conner (who is an approx., 20 yds veteran of producing the game dinner) and his team of approximately 40 volunteers. This was the most volunteers participating in the many different aspects that are required for this major event.
A tremendous thank you to these volunteers for your super effort that created a fun time and successful event.
Of the large amount of raffle prizes, trail cams, fishing and archery equipment, tools and $1000 gift certificate, the YETI Cooler filled with meat was the most well received.
A major 3-D club public shoot will be held on Father's Day weekend June 17 & 18,2023. Registration will be 7Am –noon on both days. There is a barbecue proposed for this event.
These shoots require volunteers for a variety of activities from attending registration, barbecue/kitchen duty, 3-D course set-up and take down etc.
Additional information details and shoot cost, will be forthcoming prior to the shoot.
Private lessons are given by members. Vocal and audio distractions, if very disruptive can be addressed between members to reach a compromise. There can be no expectation of complete quiet on the indoor range given that we have 137+ members.
There is always a great need for volunteers to handle the large variety of work activities that are necessary to keep the club, its property, and its activities in operation.
The club has a program where members can receive a $10/hr credit, for a maximum of 5 hrs, $50, This will apply towards their next dues payment in the following Fiscal year, which is in the month of June.
Donna Rhoads, firstname.lastname@example.org; must be contacted in order to record any work hours that a member has performed, to keep a total of a member's work hours, and to assure the proper credit is applied.
*BE ALERT----SAFETY FIRST
As an archery club, we are very fortunate to have an Indoor Range and 2 outdoor courses on our property: 3-D and Field. All members need to remember that multiple archers, can be on any of the courses, at any given time.
** SAFETY ALWAYS COMES FIRST
Also, for your awareness, you may see hunters on the property. Do not be alarmed, as these are club members that have permission to bow hunt deer and turkey.
Have fun, Stay Alert, and be aware of other shooters.
