10 GUN RAFFLE PICNIC:
It's only about a month away from the picnic! We are looking for some help in the kitchen and some people to work the gate and direct the parking. The committee chairs are Dave Bodah and Theresa Trudell. Please contact us if you want to help out. This is the club's biggest fund raiser for the year and if you would like tickets to sell to your friends please contact Claude @ 518-891-3580 or Dave @ 518-891-5989 or Theresa @ 518-891-4505. The picnic and ticket drawing this year is on September 6th from Noon to 4 PM. I hope to see a lot of you there for the festivities.
We had our Summer Gun Show on July 19 and 20 this year. I asked Al Fuller how it went and he said “Very well”. I want to thank Al and all those who made this event a success again. Also Al told me he is retiring from the gun show business and that he will help whoever his successor is to organize and put on a good show. If you are interested in being the event chair of the Gun Show please contact me "firstname.lastname@example.org or Al at 518-201-4018.
Jeff had to retire for some personal reasons. Now it is over until we find someone to run the trap shooting. Also for safety reasons, we have to do some work on the range before the next shooting session.. We need to trim the bushes that have grown up near the river so we can see when paddlers are out there. Also the chair needs new wheels. If you are interested in running the trap shooting please contact me "email@example.com or 891-5989.
Welcome new and returning members! Eric Sperger and Judith Gruber.
We will be practicing on Monday evenings between now and September. Come on to the club and shoot with us. We are always looking for new shooters. Please call team captain Charlie Marshall at 891-6018 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
