Presidents Corner: Don�t forget the Club Work Day June 13th. There is a lot of work to do and we need as many people as possible to pitch in. Remember it is your club so you can help too. The Father�s Day Fishing Derby is right around the corner so all help is appreciated and welcomed. As summer is approaching please take the time to wash your boats and fishing equipment, as well as canoes and kayaks so we can help decrease the risk of transporting any invasive aquatic species. Spiny Water Flea has been found in about 5 Adirondack Lakes and it can travel on anything and once it invades a lake it will reek havoc on the fishing. So please clean your water gear!!!! Any questions you can call DEC in Ray Brook for more information about invasive species.

Range Questions: One question that has come up about the range rules is: What if I want to shoot my pistol at 7 yards, can I go downrange, 7 yards from the berm and shoot? NO!!! You must place a target 7 yards from the firing line and shoot. It is easier to place it so you are shooting into the 50 yard berm instead of the 100 yard berm. But everyone must be firing from the firing line, NOT DOWNRANGE!!! Think safety.

Trap shooting: Trap is going on and going strong Thurs nights and on Sunday afternoons as well. Contact Ralf Hartmann: 420-2424 for more information or to learn how to shoot trap.

July Gun Show: For the July Gun Show the club has decided to allow members only to be able to set up a tent/table outside for a flea market. You can only sell sporting related items, like hiking, canoeing, camping, hunting, fishing items, etc. If you choose to sell firearms YOU MUST HAVE A NICS CHECK done by anyone of the venders inside that can do a NICS check. Please contact Dan Ruchkin to sign up for a table. He can be reached at 891-0531. The gun show is July 18th, and 19th so please contact him soon. The space will be given out on a first come first serve basis.

Ben Tabor from DEC gave an awesome presentation on Moose in the Adirondack Park at the meeting. Any time a presentation is given at the club's regular meeting anyone can attend so please attend. I will try and get more of these presentations in the future. If any club member has any ideas for a presentation in the future please let me know.

10 Gun Raffle and Picnic: Tickets are printed and we have the rest of June, July and August to sell tickets. Contact Theresa Trudell to get tickets.
