A new trailer has been acquired and Brent welded shelves into it to hold all our gear. Everything including the prizes are now in the trailer. Tents, tarps, poles, stakes, targets (both metal & paper). Even some tools. It looks so good and everything is easy to get to. The only targets not in the trailer will be the big targets of the bear and the buffalo and the frames for the deer and antelope. These targets are too large and heavy and have to go out on a flatbed trailer which will still be the way we take them out. (All materials came in at the budget set by the club).
We have meet and looked at a new meeting site and it appears we will still be able to hold our 2nd Tuesday date. We are finalizing the plan and cost and will have an answer by the August Picnic meeting. It will be so great to be able to have “Show and Tell” again.
Remember to put the Picnic on your priority list. It’s the 14th of August at FMC Park Pavilion. We will start about 6pm and eat about 6:30 pm. It is election of officers also, so put your thinking caps on and talk to some of the members to get them to be officers. They’ll have a lot of help and every year we make changes that make it easier. And, they’ll have great club support.
We were asked to put up a display at Downey the 21st of August. We will be setting up the awning Friday night and Downey Days start at Sat. 7:30 AM with a pancake breakfast and then displays and events going on all day with Country & Blue Grass music in the evening. ( I’ll put a schedule in on the last page for events) Come if you can and bring something for the display table. It’s free and should be a lot of fun. We will be getting our name out more locally for the next years rendezvous.
Notes from the President
Things are really falling into place with the addition of the new trailer. Everything that we need to set up anywhere is in the trailer with the exception of the large targets. We can sort prizes at any club members home without grabbing the ladders and getting the tubs down from the garage shelves. This will also make it easier to keep all the prizes together as they come in instead of at the different houses in various bedroom and closets. This will eliminate things getting misplaced or wondering who has what.
We have started contact with the scouts and are working on a plan that will get us help and get them badges. plus make it fun for them and easier for us. We may even get some new shooters!
Remember to grab something for the picnic on the 14th of August. The club will pick us some chicken and be ready to enjoy the various goodies that our members bring. We’ll be holding election of officers so make sure you’re there to put you vote in. Whoever the new officers are, they’ll have plenty of supporters and help. Start thinking about it. I’m ready to help whoever those new officers are. Thanks for your help and support this past year.
Our sympathy and prayers go out to:
Julie Piazza, who recently lost her step-father. We’re thinking of you and your family. Wayne and Becky Nelson, who lost her brother to cancer the end of June and just learned on the 16th that his wife had just died also. They were a couple that could not be separated. With Becky’s Dad being ill, they are having quite a struggle. Keep them in your prayers.
