As hunting season approaches we are asking members to donate game for the annual Game Dinner which will be early in 2022; usually the Saturday just prior to Super Bowl Sunday
We are always looking for venison, but we also use just about any other type of wild meat, fish or fowl. The bone must be removed. Each package must be labeled with your name and type of meat. We also need deer ribs, this is often overlooked when paying someone to process your deer, you must request that they save the ribs for you.
Please call Bob Bruno and arrange for delivery/ pick up. Bob will also process the deer if need be. A deer MUST be field dressed. We understand that some members don't know how to butcher an animal, or maybe even skin or de-bone it, that is why we offer this pick up service. Another option is to bring the animal to Bob's house, and get some hands on instruction if you want to learn about processing your game.
Do not hesitate to call Bob, at any reasonable time of day, to schedule a pick up or delivery. Bob Bruno: firstname.lastname@example.org
More details to follow in newsletters leading up to the dinner
GAME DINNER DOOR PRIZES AND RAFFLE ITEMS
We are seeking donations of door prize items and raffle items for our annual game dinner. We ask that all items be in new unused condition.
Bob Bruno, info above, is looking into the possibility of a muzzle loader as a major prize

**A large oak tree near the shooting platform has been cut down. Members are encouraged to take the wood. Many pieces are large and most likely chain saws will be needed as well as other tree cutting tools
Members seeking to sell their unneeded equipment should post their information on the BULLETIN BOARD near the club house entry door. Once the equipment is sold the poster should remove the announcement from the board.
The Newsletter is not used for this type of posting. Thank You
There is always a great need for volunteers to handle the large variety of work activities that are necessary to keep the club, it`s property, and it`s activities in operation.

*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 & 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 at all times.
