Treasurer's Report: A copy is posted on the bulletin board.
The 2nd leg of Triple Crown had 146 shooters!! Congratulations to all the participants. A big THANKS to all who helped with the shoot. Counting the 154 archers from the 1st leg, the Club has had 300 archers enjoy the shoots. We can easily break our total participation record with another turnout like the 1st and 2nd legs!!
Bob Graham displayed a trophy that he and the late Norm Ruschill planned for the Club's Outstanding Member of the Year. The Club's board members are to select a non-board member who has donated their time and efforts to the Club. Bob talked about how all members have a part in the Club's upkeep and success, but responsibility starts with the Board. He also talked about how the Board should involve members through the use of committees. To nominate a club member for Outstanding Member of the Year, nominations must be into the board by December 1st of each year. The winner will be announced at the annual banquet.
John Wilson will be holding a beginning archery class for adults on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00; March 19, April 2, 9, 23, 30 and May 7th. This class is open to the public. The class charge is $25 per person. Instructor's will be NAA certified. The range will still be open to members who want to come shoot during these times.
The Club is still looking to host a 3D Spring Fling Fun Shoot in May of June. As time is short, board members will meet informally to gather information and present details at next month's meeting. Info will follow when plans are finalized.
Members will notice the new roll away target butts. Please remember that all the indoor target butts are for everyone to use and they are NOT to be used for broadhead practice. A number members of are concerned that broad-heads are being shot inside. Club rules state that anyone caught shooting broadheads into non-broadhead targets will be dismissed as a Club members. Bulls Eye Archery has donated a broadhead target for indoor use. The target will be set up on a roll away stand. Please use this target rather than the regular ones when shooting broadheads. Remember the Club's regular targets cost over 300 hundred dollars each. That's a lot more than a 50 or 55 dollar membership. People shooting broadheads into the regular targets are robbing all Club members. If the practice continues, the Board may have to find other alternatives - like raising the membership dues on everyone. A special thanks to BULLS EYE for the target!!
Joel Meena reported on Bow Hunters of Wyoming's (BOW) annual meeting to be held April 8th at the Rock Spring's Holiday Inn. BOW's banquet guest speaker will be Tom Hoffman from Albany, NY.
