Presidents Corner: Spring is approaching, or is here, it all depends on how you look at it, and with summer getting near we are starting to look towards our cleanup day and open house. If you have any talents you would like to share on that day, please contact a board member with your ideas and we will review them. We already have someone interested in doing turkey and duck calls and another person wants to set up 3D archery targets in the field for archery shooting. Any other ideas and suggestions would be very helpful. The board is also looking at having seminars and clinics on out door related subjects. More about this new adventure in later newsletters!!! We are trying to get club members more active in our club, so if you have any suggestions that will help us, please let us know. Happy Spring Fishing!!!!!
